Gem!

Food and service are excellent - we visited twice in days! Tiny bar serves beautifully crafted cocktails, food is carefully done and flavours are pure and precise. Atmosphere is understated but stylish, outdoor setting. Highly recommend a visit and be sure to make a reservation.

During our stay at Crown Lanta, my wife and I met a young and and really nice German couple on their honeymoon, who recommended a visit to this restaurant. We arrived early evening and were immediately impressed with the laid back style of the restaurant's interior, our welcome by the staff and the really good mood music coming from the... More

They don't offer Thai cuisine but serve a really wonderful European food. Worth the visit when you are in ko lanta. Everything on the menu is good.

If you can ignore the entrance way and poor signage and make your way down the rough path to this outdoor restaurant, you will be assured a delicious meal and great service. Don't be put off by the roadside first impessions! The snapper was delicious as were the grilled shrimp. Apple ginger drinks were lovely. Open in the low season.... More

I make sure to dine at Red Snapper at least once per stay on Koh Lanta, because the food is simply amazing. They have a steak on the menu that is just to die for, and all the other dishes are creative, innovative, delicious and absolutely worth a try as well! We normally share a few dishes amongst eachother, and... More

I enjoyed a few visits to Red Snapper during March-May and really enjoyed the food and company. They have an extensive menu which is all tasty but my favourite was the Steak with the super sauces. I would highly recommend RS during your stay on Lanta.
