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

This will sort of be two reviews in one as I feel it is almost like two different restaurants when comparing the quality of the western food with the Thai food. I'll start with the Thai food as I have a very good lasting impression of the Thai food served here. Staying at the Rich Resort, we ate here a... More

I just loved this place. Free sunbed for patrons, and great food watching the beach activity from the balcony. Relaxing and fun. The fire show at night was special too.

we had a meal here on our first night in lamai - good food, reasonably good service. Right on the beach at a popular and busy location. Sun beds and umbrellas are free during the day which is a bonus if you visit during beach hours. Daytime meals and drinks are good quality, a little more expensive than on the... More

I really enjoyed my time here. The staff was pleasant and the food was good. Large portions and many options. Great value for breakfast. I wish they would keep the music upstairs, though. It was difficult to read my book on the sunbeds. I have Celiac and they were accommodating. I just ordered things that were naturally gluten free.

This place is awesome. The fire shows are spectacular, the music is loud and the bar is cool, the beach is also really nice. The staff is sort of slow, but that only lends to the laid back attitude.

Have been to Lamai a number of times and always spend a few hours at the Swing Bar. Food is tasty and eating on the beach is wonderful. Spent one afternoon here planning to eat on the beach but never made it. Too much alcohol in the little red bucket!!! Fun was had by all. Will return. The place does... More
