The food was good, the service was efficient and staff friendly and reasonably priced - but the fire dance show has to be seen! Incredible!

We ate here twice during a few weeks and really were disappointed with the meals. For a quite pricy place to eat in Lamai, their food was not at all up to those standards.

This place was within "crawling distance" from our hotel and we frequented it regularly. The vibe is great and the "fire dance" shows some evenings are very entertaining. We enjoyed the food and the drinks have kick! Once they got a food order wrong (easy with the language etc) and they did their best to fix that within a jiffy!... More

We had western food and it was very good. Only surprise was when they asked is I wanted rice or chips with the chilli concarne I thought it would be corn chips lol - nope fries :) My kids loved the fire show.

A good beach location and the swings are seats to sit in at the bar, which is fun. It's nice there if a little more pricey than others (the only place we came across where you had to pay to use the pool table, albeit just 60p). There is a fire show on the beach each evening so worth a... More

I went there in the evening and I stayed much longer than I first planed to. The food was good (neither cheap nor expensive), and the ambiance was great, especially when the fire dancer appeared on the beach and started his show. The staff was nice as well.

My wife & I stopped here on a day trip to Lamai (we were staying in Chaweng). We didn't select it specifically, it just happened to be the place we were at when we decided we needed a cold beer and some food. Found the staff attentive, food good, well priced and the beer was perfect & cold. Great table... More

I'm in Samui for around two months staying at the Rich Resort which is just behind the Swing Bar on Lamai beach. I've been here just on a month and I'm loving it here! I'm a freelance writer so on the days that I work I spend all my time in the Swing Bar. I call it my corner office... More

As my personal kitchen for a month, I have spent a great deal of experiencing their complete menu. No meal has been shortcoming. Every meal prepared perfectly, and served by an amazingly friendly staff. And the bill at the end of dinner, so surprisingly affordable for an island destination. Best part is most nights there is a small fire show,... More
