We stopped by here on a Sunday afternoon for drinks - we didn't eat so cannot comment on the food.
What a fantastic location, just off Sukumvit but not noticeable - you would never guess. Looking back over Jomtien Beach/Pattaya and out into the gulf past Koh Larn. The old style (but very new and stylish) multi level terraced open air building is very chic.
great place for a drink and would offer some fantastic sunsets (unfortunately overcast when we were there.

When you arrived, you will be Wow by the views. It's amazing. About the food and service, I suggest you don't make too high expectations.i poured my wine all the night. The deep-fried soft shell crab was cold.

We didn't know what to expect as we arrived and at first our judgement was clouded by the constant flow of Chinese and Korean tourists running through the restaurant to stand and take 'selfies' and the view.
Thankfully, they didn't stay too long but it didn't help an already full restaurant trying to sort the paying customers.
We had already booked a table but still had to wait 20 - 25 minutes to be seated at our table and then the whole experience and mood changed. What a marvelous view... watching and capturing the beautiful sunset across the bay was incredible - the atmosphere was very special too!
We were seated at a front table closest to the sea on the lowest ( the third landing section. From the main restaurant floor, there are steps down to a several landings with more dining spaces available - three in all.
The food was well presented and there is a very good menu to suit most tastes and spice strength can be sorted too with the very helpful staff. I must say also that I was very impressed by the skill of the waiters and waitresses as they carried the food and drinks up and down the seeming treacherous but steep steps to the different levels. Not easy but the staff very very efficient and service was good.
One thing I would suggest is, that although the sunset can be amazing the restaurant, as I mentioned before is totally overrun by loud annoying tourists and customers all trying to take pictures and eat! My solution is just instead of booking for an early meal 6pm or 7pm leave it a while and book 7.30 for instance and you will be guaranteed better tables and a better service with a lovely atmosphere and obviously a terrific view. Go on - book it and see for yourself.
Well worth a visit.

We happened to visit the restaurant nu accident. We took a turn left on our motorbike and there it was .
We were lucky they had one table available for us, the rest was fully reserved.
We ordered khao pad in pineapple for the kids: the pineapple was completely empty afterwards which is a good sign.
We ordered penaeng curry , papaya salad and green curry. All tastes were delicious, it was hard to choose a favorite.
