Just had nachos here. Waiter was helpful!! Guacamole isn't guacamole. But nachos with melted cheese salsa and sour cream was lovely. Food that was coming out looked nice and fresh

Oh no... Such a shame... It looked promising due to the number of people eating here... It must have slipped my mind that I had been informed there are no good restraunts in hat rin and especially around full moon week. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. Drinks served quickly and orders taken. 1 beef... More

We weren't planning on a visit here, we just ended up here. Such a mistake. At half 10 at night I ordered a penang and my boyfriend ordered a masaman. They served us pretty much the same curry. I've never had a penang that was yellow and had pineapple in it. The same goes for boyfriends masaman! Plus his had... More

The service was good, and they were very nice to the kids. But. They didn't clean the fish properly so it was impossible to eat the inner part because it was bitter and impossible to eat the outer part because it was burnt. For 350 baht for a fish, it was a big disappointment.

Unplesant waitress. In menu you have so much position - it can't be fresh!!!! Garlic bread was disgusting - sweet bun and oil with garlic on top - when I said that is not good - the first words waitress was : you have paid for that.... Do not recommend

Went here on our first night in Koh phangan and ordered a pizza and a fajita. Service was very quick and the staff were attentive however the pizza turned up about 10mins before the fajitas meant we were both eating at different times. The beef in the enchiladas was awful and inedible, that chewy I had to just remove all... More

It took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get my food, which was also the wrong order 2 times in a row. After that it was served correct, asked for a discount for 10% which we got after some hassle. Definately skip this place if you don't want to be dining for hours on end!

Try and look around for another place, this one has plain food and the dishes are expensive. I won't eat here again.

The crab was tasteless and dry, the shrimps tasteless too, the squid tasted like plastic and had an analogous consistency. The grilled seabass and barracuda were good, but without any seasoning. They also wrote in the bill 350 baht for a dish marked in the menu as costing 90 baht. Luckily we realized that before paying.

Thank Michele T
