Description: There are a number of good restaurants along the wharf area. Saeng Thai is a very good option. We tried Chaolay Seafood as it was recommended by one of the local residents of Hua Hin. It was an excellent recommendation. Before climbing the steps into the main restaurant you pass a large selection of fresh fish. Once on the pier, there is an army of staff to seat and serve you. My colleague and I ordered a scallop appetizer, a whole fish main course and a large fried rice side dish. The food was very good and the pricing reasonable, less than $30 for all of the food and 4 beers. Chaolay is worth a visit.

Recommended by our hotel for great fish, this fantastic restaurant offers out door dining on a pier set over the beach with the sea underneath at high tide.. The service is brilliantly choreographed and highly efficient. The fish is kepy alive down stairs in tanks and is cooked fresh to individual order. There is a decent wine list. The views out to sea and towards the mountains add to the experience.

This is a very busy and very popular restaurant, best to arrive early then for the best tables, book ahead, or be prepared to wait for a table.

We went three times every week during our stay at the Hotel de la Paix, and loved every visit!

Had a fantastic meal can highly recommend the salt and butter prawns ! Get there early for a good table , service is a bit slow but the food is worth the wait , but you might want to ask for the bill when your food arrives !!!

This place was recommended to us but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The locals seem to eat here so perhaps they get better service?
The good was okay but I had better at Thanachote on the next pier down. The steamed seabass with black bean sauce was disappointing, watery thin sauce. I liked the pineapple rice but we were almost finished our fish by the time it finally arrived.
It's quite an authentic place but I think it's overhyped and not that great.

Set amidst several seaside restaurants, ChaoLay was the only one that had a crowd - for good reason. The seafood was fresh and plentiful, the service was friendly and efficient, and the menu variety of seafood and preparations offered something for both Asian and guilho tastes! Oh, I almost forgot - the prices were very fair and reasonable.
