“delicious food, very generous portions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Yes it is a bit more pricey than your usual Thai fare but the portions are extremely generous and very tasty, Breakfast deals were a steal at 99 baht ($3aud) loved the bangers and mash for lunch or dinner!! (after traveling for 7 months comfort food was very welcome) we ate here multiple times and each time the food was great. We will return.

“Definitely the best food on Lanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Tavern was a bit pricey for us but as the food definitely was the best on the island we ended up eating here almost every day. Both Thai and Western dishes were tasty and excellent. We especially liked the panaeng curry, half grilled chicken, ribs and beef fajitas. They have free wifi. The staff was very nice and we also had the luck of spending Songkran here which included free food, lots of laughs and a very wet and fun day. An extra plus for the female cook, she was great!

The Tavern (ask for Bee) offers accommodation. They have i.e. cheap and clean longstay rooms for 8000 bath a month (2012-2013). There is a pool behind the restaurant.

“Best food on Koh Lanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Have eaten here twice now - first was Southwestern Chicken - HUGE breast of chicken with ham and mozzarella cheese and salsa with salad, corn on the cob (2 ears) and french fries. Was all I could do to eat 1/2 the chicken (take away for next night's dinner).

Tonight, I had the bangers and mash and they were excellent. Hearty, meaty sausages and a mountain of mashed potatoes with gravy and onions. Salad and mushy peas on the side.

Chicken was 220 baht and the bangers and mash was 200. Prices are not cheap, but not ridiculous either.

Food was excellent and service was attentive.

Remember, in Koh Lanta, don't expect speedy service. The pace is slow here.

This is either called "The Tavern" or "Lanta Tavern".
