Just delicious

The food and service here are just brilliant. Fresh, tasty, individual tapas dishes, and they even let us sit at the bar when they were fully booked. Came back a second time, and just as good. Loved it.

We enjoyed our meal at Red Snapper. It was walking distance from our Villa and highly recommended by our host. The restaurant is mostly open air, with artistic touches and "walls" inserted to create a cozy environment. The menu had many creative choices - it was hard to pick which one to try! There were vegetarian options, fish, and meat.... More

I think this was the fanciest place we ate at while in Thailand. The food we ordered was extremely tasty and well presented, the prices are higher than most places but I think you are getting your monies worth. Not a place to eat at every night. When we arrived there were no available tables and I actually felt like... More

Crab sliders were amazing, loved the chorizo and mussels. I felt the prices were very cheap in comparison to other restaurants in Thailand. Friends meals were great also.

Fifth or sixth time eating here over many years and its always the same. Always excellent. Great service, great food, well prepared, passionate and caring owners, nice location, good prices for the quality that you get, excellent steaks, great starters, good wine list, calvados for after-dinner. I will keep coming here until the owners decide to retire. Thanks again!!

One of the best meals in koh lanta, great for vegetarians, great little place!! would of gave it 5 stars if it wasn't for the owners attitude, however the service from the thai workers was excellent as usual, they are always professional and greet you with a heartfelt smile, Thailand is the best!!!

We ate dinner here one night after reading about it on a few blogs. The service was good and the food tasty. However it was a bit pricy for smaller portions of food. We ordered four of the tapas type dishes for about 410 baht and that did not completely fill us up (two people). The food is different and... More

Had a good experience here, very nice atmosphere set in a garden with lights. Food was good - we ordered a few small plates to share (fig + goat cheese salad, gnocchi, ribs (were a bit dry but good), crab sliders). A bit pricier than other restaurants, but a nice change from Thai. Make sure you make a reservation, they... More
