There are huge numbers of reasonably priced beach restaurants in Thailand and this is another one. It is not Michelin star stuff, but is good wholesome and fresh food, like most. Staff speak excellent English (and probably German) are friendly and attentive. The menu is kinda the same as most, and with its location the fish is fresh, tasty and... More

Really can't understand how this place is receiving 4 & 5 star reviews - it is by the far the worst place we have eaten at while on holiday in Thailand. The only thing going for it is its location, right on the beach. The service was poor (none of the infectious Thai smiles on offer here) and the food... More

If you are staying at Kantary Beach Hotel, this beach restaurant is a 5-minute walk along the sand. Tables are situated under Casuarina trees, some of them under their own thatch-roofed shelters - handy for when it rains! The menu is homestyle Thai and surprisingly extensive. Our favourite dishes were those featuring the giant local prawns, one of the plusses... More

Again like all of the restaurants we have visited along the beach this one was brilliant. The menu was a bit smaller than some of the other ones, but it was very traditional with a few western dishes. The food was cooked to perfect and arrived very promptly. The staff as always were amazing and I must say out of... More

We ate here a few times during our 4 night stay in Khao Lak. We had lunch twice and dinner on Christmas Day which was lovely and relaxed. The food each time was great, we had pad thai, vegetables in oyster sauce, panang curry as well as a few other dishes and all of them were delicious and freshly prepared.... More

The Boatyard is located at Coconut Beach at Laem Pakarang, north of Khao Lak. Not only sits this cozy seaside restaurant right next to the most beautiful beach of whole Khao Lak, but is staffed by very friendly and attentive people who make sure to grant your every wish. For several events, like birthday, reunion with friends, etc. they decorated... More

We decided to try here based on good reviews and the fact it was a short walk along the beach from The Kantary. Really friendly staff and a nice menu. I opted for chicken satay and a Penang curry which they made really spicy as requested. My wife had a green chicken curry again really spicy as requested. Good service... More

A very simple beach restaurant. The fanciest part are the candles on the beach. The quality and quantity of food is fantastic value. Friendly staff. A fun rope swing to use while waiting for your meal.

Staff was absolutely friendly and welcoming at all times. You can spend the whole day at Boatyard: they have comfortable sunbeds directly at beautiful and endless Coconut Beach, you can have lunch and dinner and icecreams here. We even spent Christmas Eve here and had a great dinner. The staff made every effort to nicely decorate the tables and the... More

Very nice restaurant by the sea. We especially loved the papaya salad and the battered bananas with honey. Excellent service and a wonderful view. Highly recommend!
