What a gem this place is. The tables and chairs are basic but the friendly staff are quick to make you welcome. The starters are superb and the main courses are so varied and delicious that we have felt the need to return again and again. Highly recommended.

The food though. OMG!!! Absolutely beautiful! Ordering the fried chilly with squid and a side of steamed rice. Fierce chilly, pungent ginger and garlic rounded off with... More

This is a family-style, small outdoors restaurant that offer good thai-food. We've eaten there several times during our stay at Merlin/Mariott Beach Hotel, and it's always tasty. The decor is very simple, but service is always polite and friendly.

Dined here in 2003, 2013, and heading back in May 2017. We will be staying at Avista this time and this will be our go to restaurant most nights. Can't wait, as it has never let us down

Before lunch we had a long tail boat ride from Merlin Beach ask for a " look around " 1,500 baht for one hour we asked to go south to see... More
