After a week of Thai food, I fancied something different and had the urge for Mexican. This, together with Chili's in Saladan, seems to be the only Mexican on the island. Foodwise it's not bad - not the best Tex Mex in the world but pretty tasty. I shared a chilichanga, some enchiladas and a quesadilla. They put a fair... More

We have been to Koh Lanta five years in a row and The Beachcomber restaurant feels like our living room! We love to sit outside by the bar whenever possible. There we can read, play cards and just relax when waiting for lunch or dinner. This is a great spot for watching the sun go down. The food is great... More

Came here for lunch and there were flies all over the place. I had to spend majority of my time chasing flies away from my food. I ordered nachos which were very average.

We went here last week due to recommendation from fellow travellers. The food was great, but the view is what really made it! Lovely relaxing place to sit to watch the sun set. Would highly recommend a visit here if you are in Koh Lanta.

We actually only chanced upon this resort because it had an excellent beachside restaurant. Really great flavoured food. A bit above average priced but better than average quality. From what we saw, the hotel itself was really well maintained. Would definitely be interested in staying here when I go back to Koh Lanta.

My and my girlfriend stayed at Sai Naam Lanta and came to Beachcomber first time because it was the nearest beach restaurant. After the first time however we kept coming almost every evening. Food is great there! We had fried fish which was amazing, all curry dishes taste great, too! We even had Mexican once just for the sake of... More

The variety of the menu at The Castaway ensures that everyone is catered for but their Mexican food is well worth more than one visit. Great food, fab location at a reasonable price.

Excellent Food and location. Just can't beat sitting beach side with a delicious chicken penang. We stuck to the Thai dishes offered and didn't have the Mexican but the Thai food was fragrant and creamy. I would highly recommend it.
