Dining on the Rocks
Style: Has to be Seen to be Believed
Even though Dining on the Rocks is a restaurant that is only open for dinner, it is advisable to get there before dark in order to take in its beauty of both location and the restaurant itself.
The view is beyond spectacular; a birds-eye view of Koh Pha-Ngan island to the left and the bay to the right. The multiple level restaurant has been arranged so that each level has only a few tables; this adds to the sense of romance and intimacy. Bamboo and teak add to the natural accents in the décor.

The Krua restaurant sits on the beach in a Bophut fishing village.

Spirit House Restaurant
Style: Food for Body and Soul
It is surreal when one steps into Spirit House. The meals, though Thai, do give diners the sense that they are eating this type of food for the first time. The restaurant is housed in what appears to be a temple.
One cannot help but feel that they are on holy ground. It is possible to dine within the temple structure, but dining spots around the vast gardens are also available.
A night-time visit when the grounds are lit with lanterns and candles is an unreal experience. The Spirit House is open from 2pm until 10:30pm.
