Alright, amazing fresh bread and passionfruit cake.

I couldn't choose between 3 and 4 to rate this restaurant. From one hand, they are different what makes this place unique.

We rode our scooters to big mountain everyday for lunch it was that good. We couldn't get enough of their food and the price was fantastic. I recommend the coconut soup!

The first thing I liked is the family-run kitchen Big Mountain has. Then the waiter was super friendly and managed to speak some spanish and great portuguese. They make local tasting Thai food and as a dessert we had an amazing home-made passionfruit pie. Whenever in Koh Lanta, go to Big Mountain, you will not regret it!

A great hangout with tasty local cuisines.Thai family atmosphere, easy going staff, nice portions, and their own little bakery produces amazing european style bread and buns. .Adored by the health conscious vegetarian Yoga crowd and the hungry traveller alike.

This nice place on the hillside offered us a good phad thai and a papaya salad. Get there: from Blue Ocean Garden resort continue 5-7 minutes up north, from right hand side.

I have been staying above big mountain for two weeks now and have eaten here everyday, sometimes twice a day. The food is fresh and tasty, and the options are vast which is great as it caters for everyone. I am absolutely in love with this place!!

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner and agreed that the meal here was our favorite on the island. The view was great and the atmosphere was laid-back. I had green curry with vegetables (could have been spicier but I think they cook with farangs in mind) the dish was amazing and the vegetables were the best I've had... More
