“Good venue and average reasonable food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

You can't argue with the free transport or the position on the beach. We found the service very attentive and the food whilst not exciting was really quite good. Nothing distinctive but there are not that many places right on the beach. I wouldn't go for the seafood in the small tanks. Thai curries are good and excellent goon sarong.

“Crap food, incredibly disappointing, not real Thai”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Amazing how they could make such bad or un Thai food in Thailand. I was so disappointed eating here. Great location and atmosphere on the beach. Prices too high as well. Still had a lovely evening with friends, but for some reason they didn't realize the food here was bland, but maybe that is how they like it, but in Thailand bland is never a word to describe that food.

“Expensive and disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Had two meals here on consecutive nights on the strength of trip advisor recommendations. To start with the positives the setting is lovely and the restaurant will come and collect you from your hotel if it's on the Laguna resort.
We are a family of two adults and three kids fom the uk. First time in Thailand but used to eating in good restaurants across the uk and abroad.
The first night we had a decent meal. Not cheap- dinner plus a bottle of not great wine and drinks for the kids about £65. However its close to the resorts and in the posh end of town so not terrible. Loved the service and the ambience so arranged to return the next evening.
This time a lot busier. We had liked the look of the "live seafood" in the tanks at the front the night before so went for the lobster BBQ. We knew it would be pricey. Very disappointed indeed when it arrived. Inedible is being polite. Tasted of chlorine/ toilet cleaner. Not sure what they keep the lobster in. We have eaten lobster a few times in uk and us but never tasted like this. Very politely we asked the owner to taste the lobster as we thought maybe it was us not him. He declined but said that lobster was different in this part of the world and that his lobster had come fom Burma. Not exactly local. Stupidly we hadn't looked in the lobster tanks on the second night which were actually empty. Not sure where it was kept. The stung in the tail- 2900 baht or nearly £60 for this inedible piece of seafood alone.

Food for the kids was not good. Normally our kids will eat anything and love Thai food but refused to eat the pad Thai or fried rice. All in all £120 for a meal which nobody enjoyed.

We were lurked over ominously as we paid the bill! We felt pretty intimidated especially as we were relying on them for transport.

I'm sure there are nicer places to eat in Laguna. Avoid.
