The water front view is just amazing! Go there by the sunset or for enjoying a chillin night and you'll love it! Kitchen is real this and not pricey at all! Just need a ride to go there!

Who's gonna telling that the food at this Place isn't awesome... Is just stupid... Go there... It's definately worth it... Every Single dish was great and we hat 10 of them... Good Cocktails too... Live Music with a good Singer... Only the Noise from the motorway is the reason for not giving full points... Just happy

We stumbled across this place whilst wandering around lost. The food was great, it's a bit off the beaten track but was well worth the visit. Amongst many things, we had salted toasted sea bass, 250 baht (£5). Bargain.

The place is cozy although takes time to access here. But it is worthy if you want a romantic place to have a dinner in Bangkok. The food is fine too, but I would say I can find something better in Pattaya with the same price range.

We - family of 3- came here several times in the past years. The atmosphere is romantic, with some cool music and a nice view over the river. The food is delicious with probably the best tom yam kung I've ever had. Give it a try!

The food was delicious and the location really nice. Servers didnt speak english almost at all and the dessert menu was small.

close to a perfect rating - here's why location - by the river - cool ambiance some people listed it as far - but for me far enough from the tourist crowd you can take public ferry from saphan thaksin or any other ferry station along chayo phrya river enjoy the ride through the river passing grand palace, wat arun...

Not on the "normal circuit" but nice terrace overlooking the river so sit outside. The noise of the bridge can bit a bit much depending on the time of day. Attentive service and friendly. Some food dishes great (salmon wrapped rocket rolls, whole steamed fish) some average to ok.

We first went to this restaurant in 2008 as an alternative from the River Cafe. Both were good but we soon discovered that the Waterfront had more atmosphere, live music and friendly, chatty and attentive staff. We then came back in 2009,2011 and this year - the food is to die for - it is my husbands favourite Restuarant in... More

The Water Front restaurant is right next to the Chao Phraya River and offers good seating indoors or our preference outdoors, the menu is extensive and the chef selection is quite unique (salmon and rocket rolled together, variety of soft shell crabs dishes, plus many others. The drink menu is also extensive with beers, spirts, wine and coctails on offer,,... More
