“Heaven in Old Town”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

If you are looking for the most stunning view, for the loveliest atmosphere, go to Old Town to Caoutchouc. I have never seen a place like this before. You can feel the love of the owner for his place and the ambition with what he wants you to enjoy this beautiful place on earth as well. There is no menu but you can choose between different fruit shakes, ice coffee and hot coffee. In case you are looking for relaxation, away from all the hectic on the other side of the island, you should absolutely head to this hidden heavenly spot in Old Town.

“Peaceful, great decor, great food.”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This is in old town lanta which is a little off the beaten track. They didn't have a menu on so just told us some options and the food that came out was so good we went back the next day. The decor is really well done and unique. There's a really nice little cat that will come and sit with you!!!

Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We have been traveling in Thailand for a month and went by this little place yesterday, and was not dissapointed. They dont have a menu, you can choose from 3 dishes of the day and it was really the best thaifood I ever had! I think that says it all :)

“Worth seeking out in Old Town”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

although i have known Patou for several years, it was not until about 6 months ago that i finally got around to visiting his very out of the way restaurant- and boy, was it ever worth the effort it took to get there! very fresh and innovative Thai food, sometimes with a subtle indigenous sea-gypsy twist to it- although it is not cheap by any means, it is relatively good value for money-
everything is prepared to order- so be prepared to wait awhile for your food- but if you're in a hurry, then Lanta is not the place for you anyways!!!
features a wonderful view and incredible relaxation on the long back patio that stretches all around the building
i see where somebody complained that this place was not child-friendly; both times that i visited, there was at least one family eating there- but their children seemed basically well-behaved and knew how to comport themselves in a nice dining establishment...
frankly, i am glad the place was NOT overrun by loud, loutish ill-mannered brats...
if you appreciate very nice food in a stunning, off the beaten path setting- THIS is the place for you...

“Hidden gem at the end of the road”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stumbled upon this place when we ran out of road on our bikes and were greeted with a beautiful beach and this lovely respite from the heat.

It was quite as it was low season but the staff were really welcoming. Sat out on the deck at the back and supped a refreshing fruit juice. Stunning views and a the menu looked lovely but we were just stopping for a drink.

Lovely decor and setting.
