My favourite spot to hang out all day long. Great view, some wind, peace, music just at the right volume. Food is amazing and crafted accordingly to your request. Staff is attentive but not overwhelming. Good prices. Attention to detail with every order. Beautiful ceramics...and cutlery. Mosquito repellents offered when the time of biting comes. Wish their accommodation had air con.More

Breakfast is okay but not the best on the island by any means. It is open earlier than most places so that is nice. Given the place is always packed the food is a bit of a disappointment. I would go back for drinks though.

Delicious food with sunrise view. Nice and friendly place to grab breakfast and lunch. They have choices of local food to international food. Price is average and the taste is good.

We called by here for a predinner mango shake. Not all areas have a clear view of the sea and the many boats that park along the beachfront. The shake was good though.

2 years ago this was our go to place but this time around, the quality of the food has declined and the portion sizes are very small given the price. The service is still pretty good. When we questioned what was going on, it appears...they have changed chefs over the last 2 years, but the pricing suggests they are just looking to maximise short term profit. We found a new go to place. Disappointing.More

We loved this restaurant for its sunrise views, great food selection, and breakfast cocktails available (Buck's fizz = quality mimosa). The Khao Tom porridge is a great Thai breakfast option, with pork, chicken, or shrimp in a rice porridge with shredded galangal and Thai spices....Ambiance is incredible. Prices are a little inflated relative to other restaurants on the island, but it seems like we are paying extra for cleanliness, quality, attentive service, comfortable seating, and the view - things that almost no other restaurant on the island can offerMore
