We loved the bamboo paths and décor of this beach front restaurant. My wife took photos of the unique bathroom. There is a gift shop with a good selection of inexpensive souvenir handicrafts. The seafood was exceptional and the portion sizes were generous.

The building is super cool, it's a big, intricate bamboo dome serving great food at reasonable prices on a beautiful beach where you can see great sunsets! If you go really crazy and have a starter and main and a few beers a... More

We ate one time in this restaurant. The setting is beautiful, on the beach, and the restaurant is nicely designed with bamboos and integrates nicely in the surrounding nature. The service is however terrible and spoils the nice setting... Staff are running all the time and looked stressed; they forget people, each plate comes with a different timing and we... More

Food is lovely, manager Pat is welcoming and efficient and they also have decent wines, so hard to find in Thailand!!! Fairly priced, clean and overall great restaurant on the sand.

A very good beach restaurant - excellent for lunch and a pleasant change from the slight formality of the Pimalai, if you're staying there. Lovely and shaded in the heat of the day. Thai curries excellent.

We have visited this restaurant on couple of occasions, once for an evening meal which was very nice and during the day for some fresh cold coconut juice and coffee which is excellent. Restaurant is located on the beautiful stretch called Kantiang Bay, there are only handful of restaurants and hotels located around this bay, truly lovely area. We liked... More

Settled in one of the best beaches in koh Lanta, this restaurant /bar has a perfect infrastructure, food is really good and prices are reasonable, it also has many desserts and cocktails. I definitely would recommend this place for watching sunsets with some Mai Tais. They accept credit card which is quite unusual here in Lanta.

Beach bar restaurant is located on the beach so not that much choice of where to go for food. Clean in comparison to the others on the bay. Gorgeous beach. Just a biy pricey on food but awesome yellow curry.
