It is the best spot in town and it offers very good meal options. Everything is super fresh. We just loved the Rhakine tomato and avocado salads. The view is amazing and it has good shadow which is pretty cool at lunch time. THEY TAKE CREDIT CARDS (with the customary 3% fee) -Alleluia! The staff is very young and can... More

Without a doubt the best view while having lunch or dinner. A small island on which a restaurant is build. The view is great. The place looks beautiful and staff speaks English well. Great management. Food is perfect as well. A must do!

We had lunch here a the Pleasant View and the food and the service were both great. It was low tide so we were able to walk along the beach and jetty to the restaurant. It is a stunning location, and the ocean breeze was very welcome on a hot day.

A great place for sunset cocktails, though, depending on the time of the year, it may set behind the adjacent island instead of the water. Don't go expecting a great meal, but the food is fine.

The service is outstanding, the view beautiful, the drinks are 3 times what you find on the streets. This would be acceptable; however, they are literally watered down. We could barely taste the passion fruit in our drink because of the amount of water. Other guests complained about it as well. I'm not sure why this is ok.

We expected better from what we had read and we actually got a better sunset from our Hotel the Merciel north of Ngapali Beach. Having said that the squid and the gin and tonics were fab.

Offers good views and has a nice ambience, however, food ordered was average. Ordered a 'crispy fish' mentioned on the menu but what came was more like steamed fish in a bowl of gravy. Banana and strawberry smoothie ordered was wayy too sweet, i wonder how much sugar syrup they added in there and i had a sore throat the... More

We had a beautiful table for cocktails whilst we watched the sunset. The drinks were very well made, although they had run out of the 4 cocktails I asked for! Food-wise, we weren't impressed - it was the worst meal we've had in Burma. The pad Thai wasn't nice and the calamari tasted like UK frozen stuff. At the end... More

Great location on the islet, in front of our hotel, to have lunch, sunset drinks or dinner. At high tide you'll have to wade through the water, or the PVI-vessel will take you there. Loved the food, which was (of course) priced a little higher then in town. Drinks are expensive (never before paid 5000ks for a beer). Staff very... More
