Definitely one of the better restaurants on the island. I was there with a friend. I loved my chicken parmesan dish, he was much less enthusiastic about the pork dish which was rather on the tough side. Also, one of the staff struggled somewhat with any English beyond ordering from the menu. The place gets very busy so sometimes the... More

I was initially disappointed to discover that they were out of gluten free pasta. However, I had the best, huge Cobb salad with TONS of blue cheese. Hubby had a wonderful (huge) burger which was delicious. The pizzas looked amazing as they went by our table to the lucky people who ordered them. The service was kind, fast & efficient.... More

Love the cocktail menu. We drank most of them and came back twice more. The burgers, Thai food and pizza's were worth the price. This is not the place to go if you are an a tight budget, it's the place to go if you want a good night of food and drink. The staff were helpful and remembered our... More

Had Pad Thai with chicken, a pit spicy(a matter of taste), but over all good dish. Service was fluent and polite. Unfortunately did not have possibility to try other dishes, next time.

As a vegetarian in Thailand, it can be sometimes quite difficult to find something Western that isn't pizza. I found my new favourite meal at the Fat Monkey. They serve a vegetarian burger and you can choose which toppings to add. I chose mozzarella, pesto and sun dried tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious. Served with potato wedges and mayonnaise, it...

I don't recommend this place. It is totally overpriced, the food was not tasty. Spring rolls were only two, pica wasn't tasty at all and overcoked. You can find much better place near it.

This was by far the busiest restaurant in town, nonetheless we were seated immediately. Service was fast and the staff were friendly. The Raoul Duke burger (its enormous) and Soft Crab are delicious. Only downfall is that the daiquiris were really bitter (mango & banana), we thought they may have been made with fruit syrup rather than fresh fruit. We... More

I'm not sure if we just went on an amazing day, but we had none of the time issues people talked about in previous reviews. We were one of a few tables around 5:30. The food is AMAZING! My sister and I got burgers (Don Corleone and Homer) and were so happy. We thought of an app and glad we... More
