Stumbled across it whilst walking down the beach. Excellent spicy beef salad and fresh spring rolls. Followed by very good red snapper. Great location on the beach and very helpful staff. A must visit. Try the Thai wine.

We stayed at the Layana, so dined here quite a few times. The food and service are simply fantastic, and the setting by the beach is just lovely. As you'd expect from a 5 star hotel it's more expensive than surrounding places, but well worth it. The best food was their beach bbq with excellent steaks and amazing seafood including... More

Excellent Thai and Western cuisine, served in elegant beachfront setting by an army of well-trained and authentically friendly staff. Some themed evenings (shellfish/grill/thai) that add to the enjoyment. Am not sure why some reviewers have a dig at the prices or variety - this is an upscale setting at a very smart hotel and prices very marginally higher than the... More

Location is directly in the beach, and you have the waves crushing almost at your. Prices are on the higher side (300 baht for a starter, 300-600 baht for main,... More

Tides is the restaurant in the Layana resort, where we spent our recent holiday. I would have preferred to give this review 4.5 out of 5 but cannot - the food is just wonderful, I can only remember one occasion where the food was just the tiniest bit disappointing and this was due to portion size rather than quality. The... More

I have travelled to Ko Lanta with my wife during our honeymoon. Once we tried Tides restaurante, we never made other choice. Excellent food with affordable prices. Friendly and dedicated staff, in a restaurant where the sea is only 20mt away.

We have eaten at this restaurant twice during our 4D stay on Koh Lanta and we will certainly go back before we leave. It is amazing and almost perfect. The location is stunning. The decor is beautiful. The tables setting and layout is well planned. The service is impeccable. The crowd is great (adults only). The food is delicious and... More
