Made the unfortunate decision to go here based on a friend saying she'd read about it online. The 'swings' are just seats at the bar and the food is western pub food. Drinks were pricey and service average. Do not waste your time and money. Get a meal somewhere more authentic.

We had lunch here two days. We only really had snacks (toastie, chips etc) so can't comment on main meals / Thai food. The food we had was good enough and the portions were big. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The bar is in a great location and looks right over on to the beach. Or if you... More

We were recommended to go to this bar on the beach in Lamai, and the fire shows were truly spectacular. Definitely worth a try. We lit a lantern on the beach which was lovely too
