“Amazing”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Came and stayed at the hostel next door with four of my friends, and this restaurant was truly amazing. Everything was top notch, from the amazingly fresh and authentic food to the wonderful and friendly service. Great atmosphere too with the lighting and music and a perfect location outdoors next to the beach. This place has left us all with many happy memories as we went back several times, and will definitely being going back.

Can't recommend it enough!

“Local food in a cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The restaurant is owned by a British lady and offers mostly local dishes served either in the Sala or directly on the beach. Food is average, but I/we expected more taking the price level into consideration. My wife enjoyed some mussels and squids which were very good, while I got chicken cashew. Located in Baan Tai where we lived, I would visit again if living nearby, but as the price level is almost the same as the Beach lounge, I would choose the latter any day.

“Stunning location, great food”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

You can't beat this setting- right on the waters edge and cleverly designed interior: wooden tables on the sand- some under covering yet still feeling airy and specious, and the rest in the open. The best is sitting in modified fishing boats...a novel idea. We had the shrimps, snapper and barracuda and all were very good. The wine was from South Africa which made us feel good since we are all from Cape. Town.
