We had a lovely night at Red Snapper, one of the best during our three weeks in asia. The food was super, great quality in every aspect, and interesting flavors. The service was great as well. Would definitely want to go back!

Food was not great at all - I understand it's hard to source good quality imported ingredients such as olive oil but had heard good things about this place so expected higher quality - definately not a favourite!

Came here one night at the beginning of our holiday and enjoyed the food so decided to come back.
We booked a table for Boxing Day evening. We arrived about 10 minutes late for our booking and we're told that our table had been taken and we could sit in the communal seating area. Appreciate it was our fault that we late but it was the attitude of the staff that annoyed me they were blunt and rude about us being late.
When we were taken to our seats we were completed ignored for about 15 minutes and decided to walk out.
Appreciate it’s high season but there is no excuse for rudeness and certainly will never return or recommend to anyone.

I celebrated my last night on the island along with 15 other Lanta Welfare volunteers.
We had been told its one of the best in the area but a bit expensive.
We all sat down at our table and chatted for a while and no one came near us.Eventually a surly member of staff took our drinks order after we had to remind them we were here!!
Have to say the food (for the island) was excellent and the menu was quite varied.Price wise it was still value for money.Just a shame the staff wasn't really interested given its probably the biggest single bill they have had for a long time.To sum up.Good valued food...shame about the service.

Dear Mr Gmanmoir,

I'm sorry that I have to say,that your review is a little bit harsh towards my staff,who are doing the best job ever in these hectic busy days.
In your review you forgot to mention that your original booking was for 10 people and not 15,I would never take a group of 15 during prime time,rather a little bit earlier.
So we had to make some adjustements and finding chairs and space to be able to seat your group.
These things takes time,especially during rush hour,while more of our customers wait for attention and service.
So please,you didn't have to make the staff clear you were here,that was well noticed,but a little patience in this situation would have been well appreciated.
And then your comment about the probably largest single bill we probably got in a long time,please,you don't have any clue about that and nor do we care,everybody is welcome here to spent whatever they like and all treated the same.
Spending a little money in a restaurant doesn't make you king.
That said,I was happy to hear that most of your group had a lovely evening here,there where quite a couple who did mention that to me in person.

The kindest of regards,
Joyce

We were excited to try this place and have a change from traditional thai cuisine in Lanta. Unfortunately the rave reviews on Tripadvisor were a bit lost on us. The staff had a bit of a can't be bothered air about them. The food is tapas style and it was OK but that is really all we can say. Nothing wowed us about it. It didn't justify the price and the tuk tuk there. We had much much better food elsewhere in Lanta.
