1000% my kind of bar...beautiful beach and beers with very cool staff and good jams coming out of the speakers. If I ever open a bar, this is precisely the kind of vibe I would try to have. Keep it up fellas 🤙🏽

Visited just about every day during our two weeks in Kantiang for afternoon beers and views along the almost empty beach. To say the guys behind the bar are chilled would be an understatement. On one day I managed to wake one of them who...More

The food is tasty and a good spice level for us but we do like a bit of spice but not over powering. Western food in the form of tuna baguettes and toasted cheese sandwich have also been fine as we felt like a change...More

The food was amazing, the extensive range of cocktails were delicious and cheap, and the location on the beach was perfect. Still, none of these were the reason that we came back every night of our stay in Koh Lanta. The friendly staff were great...More

Spent the night eating dinner on the beach and then caught the fire show at night. Overall a great experience and great atmosphere to spend our first night in Ko Lanta. Prices were reasonable and the food was delicious.

We came here every evening of our 3 day trip to Koh Lanta and saw the fire show each time and it is not one to be missed! They are very talented and include the audience. Seating is very informal i.e sitting on raised flooring...More

Nice, inexpensive Thai food, on a beautiful beach with nice music playing in the background. If you want to buy an alcoholic drink you have to pay for this separately, but that's hardly a great inconvenience. Nice fire-show each night at 8.30, but for us...More
