£4 for a rum and coke?! I had one an moved on. Decent spot on the beach but doesn't warrant charging you that kind of cash.

We ate here twice over our stay. Icy cold beers and amazing spring rolls. The food was really good here with quick service and large portions. Really great thai place.

This is a great setting for an after dinner drink looking over the beach. It's very laid back and an ideal way to finish the evening, we went two or three nights on the way back to our hotel, good prices and choice of drinks.

This is a great place to relax, take in the incredible views of Kata Beach and have a cold beer - in the shade. It's a bit tired looking, swarming with ants the day we visited and the service is a little lacking, and but I would still return. The food from the adjoining restaurant is great.

Cozy little bar right on the beach between Kata & Kata Noi. Cold Beer, Good Tunes and friendly staff. A nice way to wind down the evening.

Beach little bar at the end of Kata Beach. Food was good, service was friendly and good. Food was good value. We ate Thai mostly. It poured rain one of the afternoons we were there (we went there 3 times)and the staff made sure everyone possible got reseated out of the rain. Nice atmosphere.

Nice vibe in this place up in the rocks overlooking the ocean. Easy listening reggae but little ska.

I was expecting so much out of this place, however the drinks were terrible! If you want a watered down fruity cocktail then this is the place for you. Check out Patong Beach instead!

Sitting in this beach bar set up in the rocks overlooking the bay was a particularly pleasant way of spending an evening! The music was easy reggae & the waiters helpful.

I really enjoyed it here - especially later in the evening - cool vibe, friendly service & a nice place (beachfront) to relax and enjoy a drink or two.
