Café

“This is a “must-visit” restaurant located in the hills above Chaweng. Enjoy stunning views as you sit on a large deck with oversized bean-bag chairs. Food and drinks are excellent and match the view. Reservation is recommended - ask for a table next to the hillside.”

Beach
“Sit back in rustic trattoria-inspired surroundings, either al fresco orin a cosy air-conditioned space. A menu of sensual dishes awaits, from wood-fired pizzas to home-made pasta and zesty seafood creations. Tuck into Chef Marco Boscaini’s passion for artisanship and his homeland’s rich culinary heritage bursting in every forkful.”

Restaurant
“Good French breads and pastries - and a great place for breakfast with many typical European selections on the menu. Get your coffee fix here! There is another equally good French bakery and cafe about 300m south of La Fabrique, same side of the road, also well worth a morning visit. Buy baguettes and croissants here to take home for later.”
