It's a shame this place doesn't advertise its bungalows as well as the restaurant. We stayed in a bungalow on the cliff overlooking the sea for 3 nights - wish we booked longer! The place is at the top of a steep, dirt road, but it's well worth the climb. The restaurant is also fabulous - great Thai food at... More

We stopped by this very nice restaurant for lunch after coming back from Koh Lanta National park. It was accidental but we were so lucky we did! Even though from my research it was recommended for sunset view, the view we had for our lunch, was easily the best I lunch view I ever had. The contrasting green and blue... More

With absolutely stunning cliff top views, Do yourself a favour and drag yourself up the dirt track to Top View. Chang in hand, Kantiang Bay on your left, Koh Haa straight ahead and watch the sun go down behind the 5 islands. Stunning. Lost count how many times I've been. Can't wait to be back!

My family came here 4 afternoons during a week stay in Kantiang Bay. It has the most amazing view over the sea and back around to the bay. The sunset view is the absolute best. Make sure you have a seat on the cushions under the huts or better still dangle your feet over the railings. The huts are literally... More

The views alone justify giving this place top marks. But the food was also great, and not over-priced. We ordered the shrimp tempura appetizer, then ordered it again! Well worth the drive up the steep gravel hill.

We randomly came across this place just before a storm came in. The sunset aside this was a sight to see. In the end we got stuck there for about 2 hours and the staff were brilliant! Good company and good drinks! Worth a visit just for that!

We came here to watch the sunset and the view is magnificent. The barman knows how to make a good cocktail and the live music was also very good. We didn't have a chance to eat here so i cant rate the food.

from my 1st week visiting Koh Lanta 3 1/2 yrs ago, to just recently last season, i continue to come back to the smiling family that runs Top View Restaurant, easily one of the best views on the entire island, perched at the northern high-point corner of Kantiang Bay Top View never disappoints culinarily, w/very good food, featuring fresh seafood...
