This place has a really chilled out vibe with hammocks and comfy seating, so is a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The service was friendly and fluent English is spoken.

We ate here a couple of times, although we opted for western food on both occasions (they do offer Thai food too). I had their burger twice and it was really good, and the drinks were good too

This was a great discovery - Thai-owned from what we found out, but with farangs working there too. It means that if you want good Thai cooking or great coffee, both are available. It's a great place to hang out during the day or pop in in the evening. Or just set up shop (they have wi-fi) and watch the world go by on the main street. There are hammocks or bean bags at the front and tables and chairs if you prefer that. There are books to swop or buy, and there are loads of guidebooks to consult. Drink smoothies or beer. Eat breakfast or dinner. It's about to celebrate its 10th anniversary and you can see why. It's laid back, friendly and unpretentious. Here's to another 10 years!

We ate a few times at the Drunken Salior and we really enjoyed the food at breakfast and lunch.
Staff were pleasant and service was quick.
Quirky music and different but suited the place and seating was a mix of bean bags, chairs and hammocks.

If they could sort out the annoying flies that only appear when the food is served this would be ideal.

Simple food with fresh ingredients served with a smile.

This is a great little place, fluent English speaking staff, great food and cosy little location with hammocks and free wifi. From the street and by the name you may think its an old back packers accommodation restaurant but its so much more make sure you check it out.
It also has a large collection of cats to pat if that's your thing.

A very nice and cosy place to have some food or a drink. Great selection of food, great juices and awesome coffee (difficult to beat in Koh Lanta). I can recommend this place (even with small children).
