We've been at Linda's twice. First time we had a hamburger and a beef pasta, both were really tasty. Second time we've tried the grill options and it was disappointing. The salmon is probably imported from somewhere else - and small portion. ceasar salad was good. Pork ribs came in their original size, which means that although they were tasty, it was almost impossible to eat. I think it's laziness not to cut the ribs in smaller pieces, really. Wine list is poor as in many other places in Ko Lanta, so don't expect too much. Service is great, our thai waiter was the most gentle one. Dessert was good, very well presented. All in all, the place is between being a classy restaurant and a laid back one and we found it a little bit pretentious, especially because it's expensive. But it's a good option to give a break in thai food.

I have to say, I was shocked by the bad reviews I just saw. We went to Linda's by chance and ended up having dinner there two nights out of three. The service was amazing. The food was fresh and delicious. Perfect for Vegetarians and Meat-eaters alike. The roasted beet root with fresh made chèvre was just melt in your mouth good. Make sure you try the sides...roasted root vegetables, smash potatoes with crunchy onions on top...YUM! You won't want to miss dessert...the Chocolate Fondant was perfectly done with an amazing salted carmel ice cream...and the Key Lime tart with Meringue...this homemade meringue was out of this world.

Me and my girlfriend tried both Thai dishes and more scandinavian dishes and they were very good. The service from the waiter and Linda herself were fantastic! I will definitely recommend this place!

Can honestly say this was the worst meal we've had on Lanta this year. My chicken stir fry veg was mostly red and green peppers and the chicken tasted - well, it tasted of nothing much! We knew Linda's was suppose to have a reputation for Swedish-style meatballs. My partner's verdict on his meatballs. Ghastly, dry and horrid. The only bright spot was the smile of the boy who took our order.

We saw it in trip advisor and we visit it. We order a pizza that was terrible, a bolonaige spaghetti that was just ok. The chocolate milkshake was cacao mixed with ice. We didn't like. The service was not so good too.

Thank you for your review! I'm so sorry to hear that your visit at our place was a dissapontment. I don't know what could have happened with the pizza this day. Many people love our pizza and come back all the time for the pizza and our other food. It's good for us to know though so we can approve and make sure that the pizza at anytime is as good as always. The bolognaise we have is made for kids, we have it only on the kids menu and because of that made with less spices. The milkshake I allready spoke with the staff and made sure that the real recepie is used, Without cacao and ice, if this was the case you. I'm sorry for that and I wish that we could make it up for you in some way!
