Nice little bar

Had a few drinks after dinner at this bar and had a great time. It's right on the beach at the very southern end of Kata beach so the sound of the sea goes well with the reggae music Worth a visit

Great place to chillax at sunset, have some cold ones, and watch the beach. We ate there (2 families, 4 adults and 5 kids), and I probably wouldn't rush back to eat there, 2 of our family had upset tummys next day (I had red curry fish, son had red curry prawn and didn't think they were cooked properly). Will... More

Perfect dive bar that really makes you appreciate the beach. Very easy to get swept up in the mood of such a bar. Beers ice cold and so chilled out. I could have this as my regular hang out no problem.

Cheap tasty food on the beach. Atmosphere is memorable especially the music and lights at night . Views are of the beach and sea. Everyone catered for as the menu is extensive.

We didn't eat here but the beer was cold. They obviously cash in on its unique location under the Banyan tree and this is reflected in the staffs fairly disinterested service - Worth having a beer here though
