A hole-in-the-wall frequented by various dive school instructors. Good drinks nice people. The regulars get thoroughly drunk each night.

Great place to start the night out with friends. Careful though because you always have such a great time that sometimes you find yourself on the couch at 4am!!

First impressions - some benches on a patch of mud. But...they do amazing food, especially the roast dinner which for 300bht you get everything...Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, chicken or pork, stuffing, veg and heaps of gravy. Massive portion, well worth the money :)

Lovely little open-air bar where you can meet like-minded divers and have a good cocktail and and a chat about the day's diving! Cocktails not too badly priced either!!
