I spent 3 days at this resort and only left it once for a dinner out in town. I thought the food was very good, in particular, the Sunday brunch was amazing with a great a choice of different foods. The place was busy with people from outside and inside the resort who go there for this special Sunday treat. Apart from that, I experienced many dishes in their tapas menu which were all very good, tasty and very reasonably priced. The service was excellent and the staff extremelly kind. I met the chef, an English guy who was most accommodating. The eating area is very pleasant and I highly recommend this place.

I had wagyu steak and apple tart with ice cream. I did not enjoy the food at all. Food tasted below expection considering the establishment and $$$. Nevertheless, I enjoyed their house brand beer.

The staff were nice and pleasant (if you could get their attention).

Nice outdoor seating areas on the beach.

The place had a really cool lounge atmosphere. The free wi-fi makes it a good place to chill out and relax in the afternoon.

The pool is not huge but decently sized for a quick dip. The beach is a bit grainy until you walk out a little bit.

The food, recommended by the 'Dinning Guide" was pretty good but not exceptional. It is definitely pricey compared to the Thai standard but cheap compared with lets say USA or Europe. For example:
Hokkaido Scallop in Garlic butter (4 pieces of small scallop) = 320BHT
Tuna Tartar Taco with Avocado Salad = 220BHT
A cocktail starts at 240BHT.

Overall, its a pricey place, be prepared, but its a nice place to just hang for an afternoon.

We went to Beach Republic for dinner one evening whilst on holiday in Lamai. We chose a selection of tapas and they were delicious. I would highly recommend the Lamb Chilli Con Carne, the Scallops and the Blue Crab Dumplings. The whole place is really tastefully decorated and we sat at a table beside the pool practically on the beach. The service was excellent and yes it is pricey compared to some of the other restaurants in Lamai, but you get what you pay for. The only criticism was that the chocolate fondant was overcooked so was in fact really dry rather than having a runny centre but all in all I would highly recommend it if you fancy a special meal in a beautiful setting.
