“Fabulous every time!”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

We returned here after just over a year and were recognised by the delightful couple who run this lovely chic bistro style eatery. The ambience has not changed from the friendly, bubbly vibe we had in 2012, in fact the service is now slicker without loosing the relaxed feel. The food is great. Admittedly we have only sampled breakfast and dinner, albeit on several occasions but it never failed to deliver on flavour, quality & value. They have a very small sign saying 'all food cooked with love', this is so true. Having eaten in many restaurants in various countries, the small but varied menu ensures you are in for a freshly prepared delight. Its French charm is delightful and spot on and I'm sure fills a niche in this local Thai tourist haven, however do not discount the talents of "Mrs Shanti Shanti's" Thai cooking abilities - the smells coming from her pans as she prepared a meal for the 'family' were seriously delicious and could bring a different dimension along the same lines of "select offerings" that this contemporary restaurant has to offer. If we return to Koh Lanta in 2015 we will be back for more!! Thanks to you both :-) x

“Great food with great service”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Really good food (big portions!) and delicious ice cream. We went here for late dinner. On the next day went here just to get some ice cream in the afternoon. Place was then closed but still the owner sold us take away ice creams. Small and cosy place and great service.

“Ice cream heaven”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

If you want to eat a fantastic dessert in Lanta, come here for the Tiramisu ice cream with Amaretto liqueur. You will leave with a smile on your face.

“Very chilled.....”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

A hidden treasure of Koh Lanta Old Town. Definitely worth the trip. Continue 5 minutes by motor bike on the main road to find it. It's a shame we weren't there for high tide. If you would like something 'Organic' then Shanti Shanti is the place for this. Careful with kids though. It's has a great open terrace right on the water so need to watch your kids.
