Everything about the experience of dining at the Beachlounge was exceptional. The great thing about the restaurant is that it's also a quirky and idiosyncratic experience as well.
We arrived very early as we'd booked very late and only an early table was available. The menu is varied and interesting with fine dining Thai style with brilliant European influences.
An Austrian who co-owns with a Thai chef makes the restaurant incredibly polite, well organised, with service standards from Thai people of high Western restaurant quality.
Having someone talk you through each option on the menu with obvious pride in the locally caught and ridiculously fresh fish is idiosyncratic but wonderful and helps prepare your palate for the meal. What it can't prepare you for though is the presentation which is utterly impeccable.
The cocktails are very strong the shakes are delicious and the Illy coffee is the best on the Island - they even have decaf. The situation is 'tropical paradise' down an unlit dirt track on a beach.
My son and I were the only people who weren't romantic couples - all the rest of the dinner guests were having such a special time together.
Just go. It'll be the best culinary experience of your entire stay on the Island.
If you're a romantic couple - it's the 'must go' destination.

Small restaurant with Thai cheff. Nice place and staff. Good Thai food although what we enjoyed the most were the desserts, they were delicious!

We decided to visit Beachlounge as they have great TripAdvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. We walked over one night and they were full, as I suspected they might be (we had read reviews saying to call for a reservation, but we didn't have local calling available). In any case, we make a reservation for a few nights later. We sat on one of the floor lounge spots and it was really calm and relaxing to just lay back and have a drink. We ordered the golden bags, which were crunch and delicious, and two fish dishes. I requested mine extra spicy and it came out just as such. My boyfriend was also really happy with his barracuda dish. We were too full for dessert or more cocktails so unfortunately we didn't try anything else. The service was nice, there was an Austrain man (possibly the owner?) who explained all the dishes in great detail, and the Thai waitresses were really sweet and friendly. The prices are slightly more than other places on the island, but it was worth it. Still much cheaper than you'd eat in Europe or the US. I would love to come back here some day.

The location is great, you can even dinner on the beach! The food taste amazing and it enjoys a great presentation. They recreate thai dishes with a modern style.
However, the best for me was the service! The Thai ladies are extremly friendly and they give th best service ever.
Perfect for a romantic date. Book in advance because they are getting more an more popular.

This was a lovely place, the mackerel fillet was gorgeous and whilst more expensive than some places near it's definitely fresh.

Didn't really enjoy the prawn in young coconut which was flavoured with egg but it was still high quality and the menu may have changed by then.

I think the mackerel was the most expensive dish at around 360B, and the prawn around 220B. Steamed rice is standard price at 20B.

The path is not well lit at all, and can seem quite uncomfortable if walking down towards in the night.
