This is such a lovely restaurant with excellent food and service. The setting is stunning, right on the beach. After the meal we sat on the beach on lovely Thai style seats on the sand and had some great cocktails. The beach is beautifully lit up with lots of different lights which makes it so romantic and relaxed. We sat in the main restaurant, outside on a table although there is some cool seating in boats at the front. The food was beautiful and my boyfriend had the red snapper which he said was the best meal he had in Thailand. We also had fishcakes and vegetable spring rolls to start which were excellent. The staff were so attentive and friendly and the owner took time to chat to us and ensured we had a great experience; which we did! The overall experience was fantastic and I cannot recommend this enough!!

We ate here twice during our stay in Baan Tai, once for lunch and again the next day for dinner. Our lunch was gorgeous, all 3 of us had thai food with starters. The fishcakes are possibly the best I've ever tasted! The service was absolutely fabulous. Good service is something you don't often come across in Thailand! It was so good we decided to come back the next day but we didn't bank on the fact that it would be so busy! (half moon week!) The Northern Irish owner was so lovely and we didn't mind propping up at the bar with a bottle of wine waiting for a table, we knew it would be worth it! For dinner we all had seafood and it was unbelievably good. The view is lovely as well, overlooking a beach with really cute wee seats and lamps on the sand. Would 100% recommend this restaurant, but maybe advise to make a reservation for dinner to avoid disappointment! I'd describe this restaurant as delicious gourmet thai food with western standard service! FANTASTIC!!

Great food, excellent service, a really nice view and ambience. If you are in the area or passing through, this is the place to stop off for a bite or just a drink.

Ate here two nights in a row and definitely does not disappoint! Food, cocktails and service were exceptional. Atmosphere is incredible with the beach lit up with beautiful candles and lighting really setting the scene. We had the tempura shrimp and the seafood platter! Highly recommended and the large platter is definitely enough for two people. Owner was very attentive and personable, will be coming again when in Koh Phangan.
