Modern setting but not nice outside as directly close to Rawai Beach Road. Inside very clean interior, all white and modern with some LED lights to bring some colour in. Open kitchen. Staff very nice but rather incompetent. The menu is very small - just a few Thai dishes and a few international dishes, rather overpriced. The food comes nicely prepared but tastes like nothing. We had Thai food and there was no taste , no spice at all in it.Drinks are completely overpriced, all in all not bad, clean, but really nothing special and from the variety and taste far behind any Thai roadside eatery (which by the way does not necessarily have worse standards in hygienic things). If you want to go to a restaurant for food this is not a good choice, too uninspired, if you want to meet other farangs, every bad next to it is better, if you have small children then it could be a good choice as there is A/C inside and they have some toys and books for children and are rather children friendly.
English spoken rather well.

As you could read in the previous review, we really loved the food and atmosphere in Lugar de place. So today we went back to enjoy a nice meal again. To our surprise, they had already noticed our review on this site and in particular our comment about the desserts. So after a great meal, we were offered another dessert to try. It was their white chocolat mouse with a coffee flavor. We have to say: this one is really worth trying!!

Also today there was some live music, witch created a great ambiance!

So once again we can only recommend going to Lugar De Place, as the food is good, the surrounding is clean and modern and the staff and the owners are very attentive and friendly!

Best restaurant @ Rawai Beach!

Lugar de place is quite a new restaurant (opened only 5 months ago), so there aren't many locals who know the place... Nevertheless it is really worth looking for. You get 2 sorts of menu: a thai one and a more international one. We went for the thai one (hey, you're in Thailand, right? ;-)). After a great cocktail (which wasn't as expensive as in nearby restaurants/hotels), we went for some appetizers, which were very tastefull. Then we had our main course (tamarind prawns and a curry with praws), which was delicious. We had it along with a glass of white (house) wine (very good price/quality) It was also the first restaurant where we wanted to try a dessert. That was OK, but not the best of the menu.

The staff was really friendly and also the owners were very nice, talking to all of their customers. So if you're looking for some great food in a loungy setting with friendly service, lugar de place really is 'the place'! Highly recommended!
