Dining delights at “Top of the Reef” Cape Panwa Hotel

Imagine a venue which offers a stunning vista over the Andaman Sea combined with a variety of meat and seafood grilled to perfection; can you picture it yet?

We had the pleasure of trying out the food served at the “Top of the Reef” restaurant, located in the Cape Panwa Hotel, a few steps away from Phuket’s Aquarium and the crystal clear waters of Panwa Bay.

The cosy restaurant specialises in everything grilled, and does an outstanding job at combining flavors of the proteins and locally-sourced ingredients. The keyword here at “Top of the Reef” is “fresh”, and the diners, both hotel guests and out-siders, understand that concept well.

For appetisers, we started with Norwegian Smoked Salmon served with a traditional Horseradish Sauce, which brought a pleasant peppery taste to the salmon. This was followed by the Green Asparagus and Scallops au Gratin with Hollandaise Sauce, another dish which takes advantage of local high-quality produce elevated to a great taste!

A refreshing Chicken Broth with Sliced Vegetables was served after the appetisers, getting us ready for what the restaurant really focuses on: grilled meats and seafood.

Our first main course was the Sautéed Tiger Prawns with Sweet Basil Sauce. The prawns were cooked to perfection and well-balanced thanks to the sweetness of the sauce. We also enjoyed a Grilled Duck Breast with Orange Sauce, which was served a nice pinkish colour. The acidity of the orange paired very well with the tender pieces of breast, served with a selection of vegetables.

Finally, the pièce de résistance: a stunning Rib-eye Steak with Red Wine Sauce, cooked mediumrare like it should be, and served with baked potatoes and greens. The red wine sauce was rich but did not overpower the tenderness of the rib-eye, which literally melted in the mouth.

To end this culinary delight, we were treated to a skilfully created Chocolate Soufflé, rising a good three centimetres above its ramekin. The tea and coffee came with a selection of chocolates, perfect to end this travel to a world of perfection.
