10 Best Restaurants in Kata Beach

Best Places to Eat in Kata Beach

Kata Beach has a fair amount of good dining choices as well as a few excellent top-of-the-range restaurants falling into the 'it doesn't matter because we are on holiday' kind of price bracket. Divided into south and north Kata, both areas have restaurants serving international and local cuisine, typically at tourist prices.

Generally speaking, the top-class choices are located in southern Kata, with the mid-range family restaurants in northern Kata with the area in between devoted to large, open-sided family orientated establishments that cater to visitors rather than locals. Have a look at our pick of the bunch – Kata’s Top 10 restaurants and decide for yourself where you’re going for a treat tonight.

This open-sided Italian restaurant is a big hit with people working in the catering industry as well as visitors to the island, simply because its food is so very genuinely Italian and its portions extremely generous. Order the largest pizza here and it'll feed the whole family. Cappanina is quiet at lunch and packed every night so either try to arrive early or make a reservation. Also with a decent wine list, Cappanina is not an intimate dining location and is more for the family. Read More...
