We spent one week in Promtsuk Buri Resort on Thongtakien Beach in mid-May 2014. As the resort restaurant closes at 5pm, we found this cosy Santa Café, a small family run restaurant right across the road and had dinners there during our entire stay (sometimes lunch too). Eating there became something which we looked forward to every evening. The Thai food there was delicious and like home cooking, made by a young cook who definitely knew what he was doing. Among our favourites were Pad Bai Grapao (fried holy basil) with parwans (80 Bht), Panang (stirred fried curry with coconut milk) (80 bht) and Tom Kha Kai (a sweet and spicy coconut milk based soup with goodies (80 bht). What impressed me most was their fresh seabass served a whole fish, which we had steamed one night and deep-fried with a sweet and sour sauce another night. Excellent value as it only cost us 250 bht. Oh and we love their ice cold drinks and one of us fell in love with "Leo"... the local beer! We highly recommend everyone to check out this friendly and yummy eatery if you happen to be staying in the Marat area. Special mention of their most pleasant and helpful staff who made us feel right at home!
