Found this place by mistake as took wrong turn. Not much I can say but fantastic. The seafood was fresh and the beer cold. Great view looking up at monkey mountain and overlooking all the fishing boats. Well worth the mishap.

this was a great place to eat! it is outdoors, but totally covered and fans blasting everywhere. The food is so fresh and the people lovely. the crispy fish was super good, as was the Tom Kha soup with shrimp. Even on a hot day, the place was cool.

Fresh traditional Thai seafood in this restaurant by the fishing harbour area. The food was freshly prepared and very tasty. One of the best. Classics such as scallops, blue crab, clams in sauce....

Located at the foot of monkey mountain in Khao Takiab (just south of Hua Hin) with a view on the fishermen village. A nice set up simulating a boat ashore. Terrific food, mostly, sea food. Fantastic service, good wines (at a honest price) and our highlight: the irish coffee, professionaly made at the table.

The first time we ate here we had the steak to our surprise it was tender and cooked to our liking. The second time I had the sizzling seafood plate this was absolutely divine. The staff were friendly the beer were cold and the cocktails were lovely. A nice outlook over the fishing boats and nice atmosphere

We were told about the restaurant by the hutsadin elephant foundation, and were told it was a restaurant Thai people would recommend. We arrived late and got the feeling it was about to close up for the night. They told us to order quickly and they would serve food. The restaurant looks out over the sea and was on a... More

Rua Rimtarn, Khao Takiab, just south of Hua Hin has an extensive Thai aneurysm menu. I recommend the big fish with thai herbs. Great food, helpful and swift staff. To Finish off the evening u must have the Irish Offees!

Outstanding Thai food served by attentive staff who do not always understand English but when we asked for the picture menu, the problem was solved. The fish was fresh and cooked in so many different ways we only tried three of the dishes. The prawns were delicious and suggest you try the White crab with peppers. The restaurant is on... More

We decided to try this boat shaped restaurant near monkey mountain because it looked nice. Arrived 7 p.m. and were fortunately seated at upper deck though it was rather full already. Nice views. We ordered lobster, sea bass and some shell fish that all were really good to decent price. A nice surprise for wine drinkers; reasonable priced wines as... More
