We have eaten here previously (approx 4 years ago), we loved it then and it certainly didn't disappoint this time. Tapas was amazing, especially the quesadillas. Prawns were great as well as the cheese plate. We loved it so much we are going again tomorrow night!

Red Snapper does more than just tapas but it's great to able to pick and choose from the various dishes and share with family and friends. Lots of home made delicacies as well as imports (carpaccio, merguez, different hams and cheeses etc) and a good wine list. Child friendly, laid back atmosphere. We go at least once every time we...

We went way out of our way to eat at Red Snapper since I had read about it on several travel blogs. SO WORTH IT. We totally over ordered because there were so many good recommendations. Here are a few of our favorite dishes: -Quesadillas -Barbecue ribs -Roast duck -Thaipirinha (amazing!) We enjoyed the evening ambiance and service was good.... More

Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes, but we found the tapas & desserts quite average, especially for the price (& small portions - the salads were tiny). We had higher expectations after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. The location & atmosphere of Red Snapper are nice though. Beautifully located in a garden behind the main road and with relaxed Buddha... More

We are here after Red Snapper was recommended to us by a friend who had previously visited Ko Lanta. I was advised to book as it gets busy so I did so via email, receiving a prompt and friendly reply. On the night we arrived we were the only ones in the restaurant but it soon filled up, keeping the... More

Our expectations weren't high having spent a lot of time in Spain. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The garlic prawns were flavourful and tender, and the croquettes were also very good. It's a little out of the way south of Long Beach, but worth it if you're looking for a change.

We were recommended this restaurant by our fantastic hoteliers Nick and Melissa at the Mook Lanta - it was under a minute walk away. Don't get me wrong we love being authentic and eating local Thai food but we fancied a change so went to Red Snapper for a western meal. Wow the steak is just devine! We'd been in... More

Set in a nice garden this place serves cheeses, cold cuts and other mediterranean food. For us the highlights were the salads. The watercress, salad and roquette used by this restaurant is organically homegrown by a French/Thai couple who have their garden on the island of Ko Lanta itself. So not only healthy salads but also salads with a very... More

We had a dinner here and were very pleased with this somewhat "hidden" spot. Not all the dishes are great, but majority of them will put a smile on your face. Try the quesadilla!

Went here for a birthday dinner. Enjoyed several of the tapas, as well as amazing pork tenderloin. Fun to go at night when all the lights are on. Very informal setting, but delicious food! All outdoor seating.
