I discovered this restaurant quite by chance and am happy to recommend it. Great atmosphere, very welcoming staff, delicious Thai food and a good selection of cocktails and ( most recommended) a huge variety of delicious flavoured rums. The night I was there finished with everyone dancing. Great vacation atmosphere, well worth a visit while you are in Lacanau.

Had meal for 2 adults and two uncooperative children. The service was good. The tables were very wobbly and my children tried to stab themselves with the chop sticks. The food was very tasty although the portions were a little on the small size....or maybe I'm just a greedy b^/ $@@d. It's situated on a round-about and not on the... More

I came back to Lacanau for a quick weekend hide-away but ended up going to the same places I knew, I was not in mood to try new things, and well, I do not regret it. Case in point: Le Lotus, that I always remembered for its authentic Thai food... For a start, the owner upgraded the design and it... More

Dominic and his team are welcoming and pleasant. The menu is limited but we have visited now on three occasions and it has been a tasty fare each time. We shall certainly be visiting again when we next go to Lacanau Ocean.

The restaurant manager is very friendly and welcoming. I got takeaway food there twice. The first time the chicken pad thai was excellent. The second time the chicken pad thai was only average. The interior decor is very nicely done and it is small but very relaxing with incense wafting through the air. I discovered when I returned to my... More

If you don't mind sitting outside at a roundabout in a very simple restaurant with a limited menu, this could be your restaurant. Nice service, nice food, but no frills, probably aiming at the surfing youngsters with little money.

Having been to bangkok many times, it reminds me of this famous bar-lounge "BED" on Soy 11, just smaller and a bit westernized, but there is this special atmosphere... And the menu is just great, i recommend Tom Yam Kumg... Too many cocktails to try, but the RedBull-Mojito was quite "interesting" and should keep you alive and kicking for a... More
