“Good variety and large nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

My family and I visited coconut willy!s on our recent Chaweng holiday and found it had a very extensive menu and was reasonably priced. The Club Sandwich was massive, so big it was tricky to eat. Other servings were plentiful and food was good.
Initial service was also good but they may have had some trainees working as when I wen too order another Coke, a few looked at me like they couldn't understand this simple request. Suspect they may have had next to no English. Eventually got a waiter that sorted us with this but found their comprehension of a simple drink request frustrating.
They were playing our local football on the TV when we were there which was a bonus for me.
Overall, I don't mind this restaurant. The food and service is generally good as is the value. All they need to do is get more staff with better English skills

“Worst food, service and atmosphere in chaweng”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Walked in here as they had the footy on and air con. It was so bad I will demonstrate in number form:

1. We couldn't hear ourselves over the TV noise
2. Rude waitress couldn't speak any English and hovered at our table with a scowl whilst we looked at the menus
3. She couldn't answer any food or drink questions we had
4. She got 3 separate parts of our order wrong. A) no chicken in the chicken salad B) spicy when I specifically asked for no spice C) failed to provide drinking glasses although asked FOUR TIMES
5. Waitress followed me into the toilet and waited for me to lock the door before gassing me out with air freshmen
6. Western guy presumably owner just sitting at the bar smoking instead of helping with clearly needed translations
7. Cost over 1000 baht for worse than average meals

“Beware happy hour swindle”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were quite warm this evening and were delighted when we walked past Coconut Willy's to see that they were having a late happy hour. Their outside board suggested cocktails were THB100 including vodka based ones. I checked with the waiter that happy hour prices applied and ordered a vodka based cocktail. When the bill came I was charged the full price of THB160. When I complained the manager pointed out that only certain ones were reduced and that this was clear on the board outside. But it wasn't as hopefully the photograph I took will show. He implied that THB60 was too small an amount to argue about, but it was obviously not too small for him to waive! He was determined to have the last word as I left and he was such a petty man it wouldn't surprise me if he didn't try to refute this review. He has the chance of posting after me, but if he does he'll just be showing his true colours!

Please do show your photo of our happy hour board which says "mojito 100 baht" with some other cocktails which I can't remember off hand.
Not all cocktails are 100 baht.
I am sorry that you got upset when a customer from the table near you that told you to be quiet and stop making a big deal over 60 baht. ...Now you can't blame our manager for that as he was polite and respectful to you and explained that only cocktails listed as happy hour would be sold at 100 baht, but you did not want to listen. Anyway.... Dear customers we have a happy hour that lasts all night. Please check hour menu for details.
