We only had to walk a short distance down the beach to get to Beachcomber, and it would have been worth a much longer walk! If you need a break from Thai food, their Tex-Mex dishes are delicious. They also have a wide selection of Thai dishes (which my husband tried and enjoyed!) and other western food options. They have... More

Okay the curries are good too but the tex-mex selection was my favourite. The nachos were very generously portioned and covered with cheese, salsa, sour cream and jalapenos: as they should be. The sunset views here are incredible.

We were for 2 weeks at the Lanta Castaway Resort. Normally we like to check out more restaurants, just because it is nice to do. This time we didn't really do that. Because at the Beachcomber you have all you can ask for. After diving (with Dive & Realx) you want to take a shower and relax for a while.... More

I recently stayed at the Lanta Castaway Resort and enjoyed my time there. I was surprised by the Tex Mex menu and how good the food was for breakfast (breakfast burritos) and Dinner (Nachos). The Thai food was exceptional and spicy, exactly how I like it. I had the Red Curry with Shrimp and rice and I couldn't get enough.... More

We stayed at the Lanta Castaway in April of 2016. We planned to venture out to different restaurants while in Ko Lanta but the great food at this restaurant at our little resort was so good we ended up eating here nearly every meal, The beachside setting is amazing, the service is excellent and the cocktails are strong. The Thai... More

Beachcomber lies at the southern end of Long Beach, with access from the main road or via the sand. If you're coming from one of the resorts, as we were, the seaside walk whets your appetite. From a distance, you have the enticing view of dull red lanterns, just across a tidal creek with warm water up to your ankles... More

Came here for dinner one evening and had a lovely but huge meal!! The servings are enormous so make sure you come hungry! Really tasty Mexican. The setting was nice on the beachfront, if we weren't so full from the first time we may have come here again!

We stayed at Lanta Castaway, so this was our go-to when we didn't feel like traveling. The selection features many Thai favorites as well as some Tex-Mex choices, which is kind of a fun, unexpected thing on an island in Thailand. We consistently had great service and good meals; we are vegan so had to do a bit more explaining... More
