I visited with my girlfriend for lunch, the sun was out and the waves lapping at the rocks at the base of the wooden decking. The owner didn't have a menu, he knew it off by heart, we had a couple of very tasty shakes and then chicken salad. It was very carefully cooked, you can watch how much passion... More

Friendly and comfortable hideout place! Cosy. Could spend the whole day on that terrace, listening nice music and enjoying the view and the owners hospitality. Go there!

Do not judge the book by its cover! Although the place has very nice decoration, the temperamental and rude owner is a good enough reason to forget about everything else. We were brought over by a friend for new year's eve dinner. I was with my husband and my two kids, age 2 and 6. Dinner was indian curry, apparently... More

I never insulted you in French or any other language, but did ask you to get out in a pretty harsh... More

This small restaurant is build on stilts and at high tide above water which gives you an amazing view. I would recommend renting a scooter to come here after you visited Lanta Old Town and stop for an ice coffee or a cold beer, whatever you prefer.

I found Caoutchouc by accident while visiting the old town, by scooter, and I totally feel the need to stop there for a drink, at least. The atmosphere it's just perfect. The view it's stunning, so peaceful that I lost myself there. The owner was friendly.

Sought this Old Town restaurant out after reading positive TA reviews...a massive 'thank you' to contributors as my husband and I enjoyed a memorable lunchtime visit. We received a warm welcome from the French owner...what a genuine guy. Food choices were limited but we opted for one chicken and one prawn dish. We sat out on the decking whilst our... More

Caoutchouc, built on stilt, on the other side of old town Koh Lanta, is a very relaxing place, to enjoy fresh drinks and food, and stunning views ...There is no menu there, so just ask what i'm cooking today ...I made delicious lunch salads, and pasta daily ...For fresh fish let me know in advance, and i will prepare it for you ...You welcome to ask for prices before sitting ...Prices are standard for this type of establishment ...Expect to pay 80 bahts for a drink, and a minimum of 200 baht for food, 280 bahts maximum ...This is what it takes to keep this wonderful place going on ...
Close at night, Buffet evry full moon night
