Great beach food

Beach side restaurant with generous portions. Salads are huge! French hideaway for the local French expats.

Attentive, polite staff. Food is fresh, tasty and not-at-all expensive :-))) the owner is french and he speaks Thai! Big plus for him. Oh and I have to mention that you dont even notice how fast you get served after you had ordered!

And you can get free beds, umbrellas and shower on the beach. Foods were good, they served grill chicken, salmon tartar, etc and a series of dessert, great for lunch and a lazy afternoon. Close at 1800 so not for dinner

Many Europeans enjoying their day (some topless, be ready), good food and wonderful drinks! My favorite was the bamboo creme, extra strong ;) The staff is very friendly and speak both English and French. A great place to stay for the day, sunbathe, eat and drink!

A nice place to spend a day on Lamai beach. Nice beach, and good cocktails & clean French influenced food. The French owner is attentive & cares of giving a good service. The best Lamai beach could offer.

Arrogant service by untrained staff. Went there once and walked out without staying for dinner. Didn't go back
