Excellent service and nice atmosphere

The owner is very kind and gives you a great service. He even comes and pic you up from your hotel (within Mae Nam), just give him a call! The restaurant is located on the beach and you sit comfortably at tables with nice tablecloth and lighted candles and feel the sand between your toes. Of course... read more

This Beachrestaurant is nicely located and facing north with a beautiful view at the Island of Koh Phangan. The tables and chairs are out of plastic and direct positioned on the beach. The service (the owner) was very friendly and even offered us a shuttle service from and to our hotel during nighttime, in case we are intending to come... More

Zenzibar is a really nice little restaurant right in the beach. Run by Yuth the seafood is super fresh. Yuth places great emphasis on sourcing his seafood fresh each day. He also helps with menu selections. A surprise for my birthday was a delicious piece of cake. All in all a lovely candlelit evening in the beach with beautiful fresh... More

This place is a quiet and "easy" restaurant located on Maenam beach. The staff are so friendly and the food is just delicious. You will be served your food right on the beach for a cheap buck.

Let me start by saying, visiting this lovely restaurant was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed a delicious candle lit dinner on the beach. The lobster was exceptional, and the staff were extremely friendly. A very simple setting, enjoying great food with your feet in the sand.

We decided to have lunch on Mae Nam Beach. After doing some research on tripadvisor we were planning to go to Cocorico or Zenzibar. We planned to take a walk on the beach and check them both out. However, at the point we started out our walk, we apparently just missed Zenzibar so Cocorico it would be. After a 40... More

This is a special restaurant. Bit of an adventure to get there on foot, however it was well sign posted so found it even in the dark. A warm welcome followed by fantastic seafood. The service is excellent. Sitting with your feet in the sand, listening to the waves makes for a relaxed holiday feel. Would definitely recommend.

Tonight was our last night in Thailand and we decided to try Zanzibar as we had read so many amazing reviews. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by the owner who was a lovely man and welcomed us to his restaunt. We sat at a table on the beach and watched the sunset as we enjoyed our... More
