We didn't book, but luckily they had a table for us in arrival. Booking would secure a table with a view on the terrace though, so I would recommend calling ahead. Nice food, and lovely cocktails. A nice restaurant to wrap up a great trip.

This was our favorite restaurant on the island. We came on two separate occasions. The seafood platter for two, tandoori barracuda and the barracuda wrapped in parma ham were all delicious. We were also given happy hour prices for the cocktails even though we came...More

Had the cold seafood sampler and was blown away. The raw tuna was amazing and I could write a book about the barracuda ceviche. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. I was traveling on a budget and I'm still glad...More

The best seafood you’ll have in Thailand for sure. The cocktails are also really good! Go for happy hour (4-7pm) and get a passion fruit mojito!

We went there because the rate on TripAdvisor was really good. Quite disappointed by the location : in a small street far from the sea and in front of a very noisy bar with poor music. The staff is nice, the food is ok but...More
