Why Re Ka Ta Bar and Restaurant in Kata Beach is special ?
Re Ka Ta is a part of the excellent and also brand new Boathouse in Kata Beach. If you are familiar with this part of Kata, you know that despite such great location right on the beach, this place saw many restaurants and not many successes. First it was a seafood restaurant called Goong, followed by another trendy but short lived restaurant called Oasis. Will Re Ka Ta succeed where the other didn't? That is still to be seen
Re Ka Ta name sounds similar to the world famous Ku De Ta in Bali a dn now Bangkok for a very good reason, it was designed by the same person. But that's probably the only similarity.
Re Ka Ta is a trendy and colorful bar but also a restaurant so we originally went there for dinner. Unfortunately that night it happened to be a buffet and we are not big fans of this concept a romantic dinning, except for brunches. So we decided to just go for a couple of drinks then move to the Boathouse for dinner, as both are connected and part of the same property.
The outdoor setting is very pleasant with an entrance terrace leading to different levels all fitted with lots of comfortable sitting, and even a small pool reflecting the colors of sunset when weather permits. The restaurant itself is partly indoor with air-con, which might not be a bad idea since the place tend to be hot with the amount of lighting and the location tucked between hills. Most tempting is of course the tables right by the beach with great views on the sunset and the small nearby island. The whole place is lit with fancy changing colors and the music played by a DJ was good but a bit loud to our taste. I guess they are trying to recreate a bit of this club mood that made KuDeTa in Bali so famous.
Price are as you can expect a lot higher than in your average bar, but the wine list is certainly a lot nicer too since it comes directly from the Boathouse.

Tips for you
Went with a large group of 10 and had a perfect dining experience. It was someone's birthday at our table and the staff went above and beyond to ensure it was one to remember. Each of us were given a white rose with our bills (and it was very handy to find a place happy to do split bills - even for 10)! Amazing experience, delicious food and wonderful, accommodating staff.
Booked a table against the beach for 6:30 pm and we were shown to our table at the allotted time. Overlooking a busy beach we started with a drink and then ordered our meal. The entree was a trio of tastes and the mains a green dish to accompany a seafood duo of bass and prawns and a pork belly on a cauliflower purée. Great flavours well cooked. We washed this down with a Thai rose which was surprisingly very good. Finished off with some high calorie deserts. Hard to beat the view and entertainment happening on the beach. Very attentive and friendly staff and a DJ kept the background music on key. Bill came to 6000 bht with the tip and IMH opinion it was a bargain. Definite recommendation for a special night.
