Rustic but great food

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... read 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.

It can be easy to find vegetarian food in Thailand, but to find creative, innovative and original vegetarian food in a beautiful setting with great service at very reasonable prices is almost unheard of. Red Snapper has possibly the best food I have ever eaten. The food combinations are amazing. I had a mushroom curry with roti, and it absolutely... More

Lovely place with delicious western food. Little bit pricy but totally worth it. I had risotto one night, very good! And lamb the second time, also great! Great environment :)

A bit pricey but really tasty tapas type food. They did duck and pork loin and the standard was high. Would recommend this for a nice meal.

Wow! Food in Thailand is great but often it's abit hit and miss until we were recommended this place. The food is incredible, it's tapas style food so between myself and my parter we ordered four dishes and it was plenty. Haven't had food this good in a long long time. If visiting Kho Lanta this restaurant is a must... More
