Especially recommend their Tom Yum Goong! Great seafood right on the beach. Their Thai curries are also worthwhile. Lacked a bit of the personal touch that smaller restaurants offer.

Very nice beachfront bar/grill located on the corner of the main walking passage to the beach. Making it a good place for relaxing while enjoying a drink or snack, while you do some people watching or just enjoying the sea view.

Located on Sai Kaew Beach right where the road from the village comes out at the beach.

An open air restaurant with a diverse menu of Thai and western dishes. We had Thai this time, which was good, but on previous occasions have had western/grill meals, which were also good. The quality of meat and ingredients is surprisingly good for a place on a small island like this. Staff generally efficient and ok.

The place also seems to have a cadre of resident kids, cats and a very cute little dog!

Don't take your own wine - corkage is excessive. They have a smalls election and an extensive drinks list.

Good food. But the wifi sucked by the beach, which is inconvenient if you need it to stay in touch. Great wait staff though!

As the 12 of us walked in the restaurant it started to pour down rain outside. The staff quickly arranged a table for us and covered the open spaces with plastic shutters.
Food was delicious, we ordered around 9 different dishes and at least 10 of us were very pleasantly surprised by the taste and large size portions. The steamed fish with lemon and the cashew nut chicken were very tasty.
Great service and good food.
