“An absolute must if staying in Lanta.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

We visited the Snapper on our second night in Lanta and were impressed from the second we saw the menu.

Despite there being a power cut across the Island for 20mins just after we sat down, when the food arrived it was fantastic. It was refreshingly different from the other restaurants we've eaten in during out stay in Thailand, with very few Thai options available which was a welcome change after two weeks.

It was a little more expensive than some of the local options with a 3 course meal for two costing about 1300 Baht, but well worth the trip!! Enjoy...

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Great restaurant! The atmosphere and delicious food make for a great night night. Beautiful gardens surround you as you dine. Drinks list a bit limiting but there is great variety on the food list. Wait staff were very attentive and friendly. Bit pricey but worth a visit.

“Superb tapas, great value food & wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Chef Joyce has been on the island apparently for 10 years and turns out delicious tapas with a twist, without being crazily avant garde. The food and wine is great value, and the staff are all lovely. Salmon roll and pork ribs are to die for. Desserts were a little on the heavy side, cheese platter was excellent, don't miss it if you are on Ko Lanta.

“Very atmospheric”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Very good service. Friendly service. Different type of food. Like tapas style. Would recommend a visit to red snapper. Little bit pricier but worth it for the setting and variety of food.

“What great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

This is the best find of our travels when it comes to food. Great tapas. Decent portions and amazing value for the quality of food you get.

Do not come to ko lanta with out eating here at least once! We leave tomorrow so unfortunately didn't find this place soon enough
