My boyfriend and I were heading to Ba Kantiang Thai restaurant when we realised that it was closed for Songkran. Some locals pointed to Alamo, a sweet looking restaurant by the roadside with candle lit tables downstairs and a bunch of expats watching the football upstairs; it was certainly a cross between a romantic dinner and a pub! We originally sat upstairs in our own separate room overlooking the road however, there was no air con and it was very noisy from the kitchen staff below. After migrating downstairs we enjoyed some delicious sweet and sour and noodles, plus a yummy soda flavoured drink. It was a quiet place with most of the tables full of western holidayers and couples, which I liked. The staff did not speak English very well but we managed to get by fine and they were friendly, although a bit slow and stressed by the looks of things! The bill was reasonable too. The bathrooms are nice but had no toilet roll. This was soon forgotten after I walked out to find a huge hole in the ground with an amazing tree growing out of it! Perhaps this was their intention...? I would suggest Alamo for a romantic dinner in the south of the island but I don't think it stands out notably compared to other places such as Cook-Kai and some of the Thai hut-type restaurants.
