HAPPENINGS THAILAND SAMUI SPOTLIGHT High on a Win The signature view, the signature dishes – it’s hard to know what to focus on. But then the tranquil blue waters of Crystal Bay or Silver Beach’s waters calm you and eating becomes a meditative process at The Cliff restaurant. Winner of the Top Choice Restaurant Award for 2017, their signature dishes include their grilled seafood platter presented plateau style. Freshly done on a charcoal grill, the Atlantic lobster, King Crab legs, New Zealand mussels, prawns and other seafood du jour are accompanied by Spanish rice. Another crowd favourite is the seafood or Frutti di Mare pasta dish, with a light creamy herb sauce that’s perfect for the tropics. From items from the surf to turf items, other house specialties include grilled steaks like an Australian T-bone or the temptingly moist Portuguese Piri Piri Chicken. Portugal, Spain and Italy have served as inspiration for Chef Sergio Martelli’s extensive menu. All dishes are done thoughtfully, with all ingredients cooked right and accordingly.
