The downsides unfortunately was that it was very expensive (compared to other seafood restaurants in the area), the salad bar was very basic, the live music... read more

If you are looking for a restaurant where you ca eat fried calamar. Is ok. But if you are looking for a restaurant where eating shrimps and lobsters WITHOUT AMMONIA. This is wrong place. The problem is that when you call the manager he says... Nothing. When yo talk about with tha staff who gave you lobsters he says... Nothing.... More

Pathong beach is probably the most expensive area in Thailand. To find good food for a reasonable price is like a gift. In this restaurant, a dinner for a couple (a chicken and a ravioli) with drinks will cost you about USD 30,00. That is half of the price you will probably pay for a dinner in Pathong. Both dishes...

Not the best place for seafood. The idea is great but the restaurant fails to deliver. Half of our food tasted of the BBQ fuel/coals and was difficult to eat. The other half was very nice. The salad bar to accompany the meal was almost empty so no salad for our meal. Rice must be ordered separately. The staff are... More

Nice ambience restaurant with live performance. The staff were friendly but everyone seemed to be busy even though they have way too many staff. We ordered sea bass (grilled), squids and prawns (also grilled) and rock lobsters (thai chilli stir fry). The sea bass was good but lack of flavour - probably because the fish was not fresh. Squids -... More

Went here because we saw the seafood selection out side. The lady we initially spoke with was friendly and helpful. After that it was hard to get a waitress/waiter when we needed one. Although the place was not busy and had an abundance of staff, they all appeared disinterested in customers. You can order the fish at the front and... More

We usually do not eat at seafood restaurants along the beach road but many years ago we did have a nice meal at Tantawan Seafood Restaurant. So one night we were walking past and decided it was time to eat here again. They have a huge selection of seafood including platters on display so I chose the Seafood Platter for... More

Went most evenings to listen to the fabulous duo John and Annie, who come from the Philippines and play every type of music. Some nights there were lots of Aussies in the crowd and since they take requests there was a bit of Cold Chissel. When the Russians were there they played well known Russian songs and the rest of...

My first visit i selected the spanner crab with chilli paste and to be honest i thought it was overcooked and a bit rubbery. My wife chose the prawns and was happy with the meal. Second visit and this time i went for the salmon and my wife chose a duck dish. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and the... More
