Found this one based on local recommendation. Doesn't look like much from outside. Food was as good as recommended. Full flavors. Authentically prepared. View was great overseeing islands on eastern side. Price was very reasonable. Would go again when visit Ko Lanta.

In the heat of the day this is a great place to go for lunch, a couple of cold drinks, and a game of cards or whatever, while looking out over the jungle to a sea dotted with karst limestone islands. We've seen a variety of birds including eagles; tree frogs; bugs and beetles; and of course the ubiquitous geckos.
The staff are relaxed and friendly and the food excellent.
Go in a group and order dishes to share, Thai style, and ask for it Thai spicy for proper authentic flavours and heat -the Som Tam was one of the best we had.
Or go on your own with a good book and while away a few peaceful hours.
People with small, lively kids should be aware, however, that the drop to the jungle below is sheer and long. Anything dropped will be lost forever... the only downside to an otherwise excellent restaurant.

The seafood are fresh and also delicious. You will see the sunset between the mountain and sea. It's highly recommended if you would like to see the sunset from the top view.

Really good food served by a very friendly family. We liked it so much that we went there a couple of times and whichever meal we tried - they all tasted very good! Also the view is very pretty :)

This place has been recommended to us for its views and good service and we where not disappointed. Great for a stop to have a drink with a beautiful view or a nice meal. Prices are slightly higher then similar restaurants in Sala Dan though.
