Food is really tasty and menu is good: lot of variety. I loved those tapas and tasted many of them. Especially the meal with moroccon meatballs were excellent. Atmosphere is lovely and romantic. Good place for diner after long day. You will not be disappointed.

Red Snapper has always been a very popular restaurant on the island of Koh Lanta and Joyce is a wonderful chef. As someone who turned vegan over a year ago, It can be difficult to find restaurants that cater for vegans and non vegans alike and have struggled with social meal gatherings due to lack of options offered.

We ate here towards the end of our stay when we fancied something a bit more than the local Thai! Yummy food, you will not be disappointed!

Said to be the best restaurant on Ko Lanta - and might be true. Run by Dutch couple that loves to mix thai and international tastes and flavours and they do it well. You can try here some thai classics but it is worth trying their fusion dishes and fish. Great garden is a nice company for a meal. Portions... More

As a break from thai food we visited here as it was close to our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. I had Bruschetta, garlic shrimp and some BBQ ribs. We also had some fresh bread with olives to start. All of the above was delicious.

I've heard many good things about Red Snapper, and the menu certainly lived up to the hype. However, when we ordered the fish soup.... the bisque was so salty, I almost spit it out. The flavour was strong, which was a plus, but there was way too much salt in the soup. I like my food tasty, and on occasion,... More

Compared to the restaurant around in Prha-Ae area the Red Snapper is a step over, this is not the place to save money indeed, but everything you'll order it worth every single penny you gonna pay for it. Highly recommended.

The new Snapper has been really well thought out by Eddy and Joyce it is now more central in Pra Ae and has been designed and built mainly by Eddy. The food is as ever varied and imaginative and there is a really good wine selection too. I have now visited a few times since the opening of the new... More

We've been here a week and had some very nice meals, but this meal was totally unexpectedly creative, tasty, with wonderful ingredients and impeccable and friendly service. We had the ribs and pâté to start, all home made and uniquely delicious. Then pork loin and tequila chicken as mains. The quality of the meat was insanely good, wonderful sides included,... More
