Went to red snapper based on rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Menu was super unique, nothing like anything else on Lanta. They have a variety of small plates and that seems to be their concept. We had a vegetarian quesadilla to share - loved the jalapeño...More

I can't understand why this restaurant is rated so low, since it is easily one of the best restaurants on Kho Lanta!

Solid cooking with a good mix of fish, meat and Thai dishes. Lovely service. Good selection of wines. Not that picturesque as looking onto the main road but interior well kept and all very reasonably priced.More

Make reservations as we tried to go without and we were turned away. The food was really good, but be warned that has a very vegan vibe to it. There was no rice to be had on any dish. Again that said it was very...More

A cool and hip road side restaurant where you can indulge yourself with creative flavours of the world. A wide range of delicious sandwiches and other goodies during daytime. An exciting list of small plates,starters and main courses during the night. A nice bar environment with fine wines,cocktails and spirits.
