Have been here twice before- first came for the setting then came back for the food! Excellent service at a reasonable price considering you're eating with your feet in powdery sand. Food was not made "for tourists," real authentic Thai food that is plenty spicy if you tell them you can eat spicy- excellent! Pad Khi Mao (drunken noodles with... More

We discovered this place on our second day of staying down the beach at By The Sea- and returned for lunches and dinners for our rest of our 10 day stay! The food is amazing, the green curry, massaman curry, pat Thais,papaya salads, pineapple rice dish, and seafood are so fresh and amazing, and so reasonably priced! The restaurant is... More

First of all, there are pretty limited choices for food when you're staying at Panwa Beach, but the Beach Bar doesn't disappoint! We had most of our meals here, and was really satisfied with everything we ordered. The green curry is really good, and so were the spring rolls, fried rice, tom yum soup, okay the list is pretty exhaustive.... More

Great food and service and good value. Live music on Sunday evenings with a great atmosphere. Wanted to buy a cool black Beach Bar tee shirt, but unfortunately they didn't have my size.

We ended up going to this place to eat almost every night. The food is good and very local. Great seafood options. The prices are very very low. You can get a decent Pad Thai for 50 bath!!! If you order food that is supposed to be spicy make sure to tell them that you want it to be spicy... More

We are staying in the area of a few weeks and loved it when we stumbled on this place. It's just a short walk from Bandara Villas, where we are staying, on the next beach. The food is fantastic, good cocktails and it's reasonably priced. Better than the hotel food.The view is gorgeous- as are all the views around here.... More

Excellent beach area, pub was ran by a family who obviously live there. Great beach access. Felt almost private to have a few drinks. Top spot

If you like sitting on a beach, feeling the sand in your toes, drinking delicious cocktails and eating delicious food - this place is for you. The spring rolls, chicken satay & singapore slings here don't get much better combined withe the view. Exceptionally good value for money. Spent the most relaxing afternoon here - we could easily have stayed... More

More info about the Beach Bar here: http://jamie-monk.blogspot.com/2007/01/restaurant-tips-beach-bar-cape-panwa.htmlThere are very few restaurants in the area, and somehow locals and vacationers find this place, but the owners are so nice, and the food is so good, it's worth a mention
