Good bar for a few (or more) drinks after a busy day of diving. Lots of instructors etc catching up so can seem a little clicky but still a good atmosphere. Don't be fooled into thinking that the cocktails are watered down. 4 "Tight B@stards" and I was smashed. Call in for a beer and grab some food whilst you're there.

Many consider as a local bar but also very open to tourists as me and my friend found. This bar has more character then i've ever seen before.... And yes the roast is amazing

One of my favorite bars in Thailand. Really nice, humorous, atmosphere and a lovely place to spend your nights, and days, drinking. Also surprisingly a great place to eat which is highly unexpected considering the amount the two brothers drink, however you can tell their passion for food when you talk to them. My wife is Italian and she said it was one of the nicest lasagnas she's had outside of Italy and respected the fact they bake it fresh.

Sadly we had to leave before we could try one of their infamous Sunday Roasts!

Seriously i cant believe it took me to come to thailand to find the best roast dinner! A lovely hidden gem just up from sairee beach which is mainly a locals (expat) bar which can get very messy at night but highly amusing. Not a silver service place more a great pub grub place that does a very high standard of pub grub though. Me and a couple of mates felt highly accepted as soon as we walked in. I've been Tao a load of times and this has fast become my favorite hang out when i'm there! Just remember "NO DIVE TALK"!
