We stopped here for lunch on our way up to see the big Buddha at the suggestion of our tour guide. The food was reasonably priced and delicious. The service very attentive and friendly but the incredible views are enough reason to stop and enjoy...this little hidden gem of a restaurant.More

You can’t go wrong when you stop here. We dropped by after seeing the Big Buddha and after recovering from the stunning view worked our way through the extensive menu. We had Ginger chicken, the pineapple fried rice, satay skewers, cheese baked mussels and more...and everything was perfect. The flavours were amazing and all the food came out in really good time.More

Off the beaten track, on the way to Big Buddha. Food was lovely and reasonably priced. We had the minced pork, fried rice with seafood and spaghetti carbonara. All were really good. Staff were friendly and understood English fairly well.

This restaurant on the way up to Big Buddha is my favourite on the island I have visited 6 times, the views are spectacular from the balcony, I normally start with the Tempura Onion rings which are superb and light, and what ever else follows...who cares I am enjoying the views too much, the food is good though I have never had a bad meal. I go out of my way from Karon/Kata to visit this restaurant,I love it.More

When going up to tourist attractions we don't generally expect much from the restaurants on the way. They can be overpriced and serve quite simple uninspired food and still survive. This one was a notable exception. The service was great, the food and drinks were...decorated with some extra love and everything tasted great. Add to that the amazing view from the restaurant and you have a winner. We passed several restaurants after this one on our way to the big Buddha, and we all agreed that from all looks we had the fortune of choosing the best one.More

The location of this restaurant is perfect. The view from the restaurant is breath taking. When you have a table at the railing and you have a drink in your hand and you feel a breeze it is just perfect. About the menu I can...tell you this; a lot of hamburgers, Fries and stuff for the tourists. There is also a section with Thai food. I had the chicken soup and to be honest I had better soups. But if you visit this restaurant it is all about the view and not so much about the food.More

On the way to Buddah we stopped here to rest a little, I did not think of a place so simple can get such a tasty dish perfect for continuing the trip. A nice place, good food, some pictures, and you can continue. Recommend.

If your driver recommends this little restaurant, safe assured it is good value and tasty food with a big selection. I would go back gladly. Not far from the big Buddha.

Our driver recommended this place when we were on our way down from the Big Buddha. View is remarkable, and the food was great. At dusk, the bats are flying in the trees above the restaurant, Geckos climbing on the walls. highly recommended!
