We were staying and diving at Big Blue but we tried plenty of other lovely restaurants. We ate plenty of beautiful food at Big Blue. The breakfasts ranged from large English cooked through to muesli, fruit, yoghurt and sometimes I'd eat fried rice. The bbq meals in the evening are especially good value. Range of fish, pork and chicken to... More

Before an AM dive, I ordered simple toast, eggs and tea. The good: they take early orders. Other locations on the beach didn't serve such early AM breakfasts and usually started around 7:30/8am for breakfast. And the bread was quite good. The not so good: it came out late 6:25 despite ordering around 610 am and I had to pack... More

Ate here as we where diving with big blue. Since diving here last year the facilities are changing and moving around. BB2 for morning dive meets was good for serving breakfast from 6 am onwards, however as it rained heavily for 3 days straight there was only 1 small area of cover for which maybe 100 people would be trying...

Breakfasts of eggs, toast, bacon were 90 Baht, coffee was another 50. Thai food was good and reasonable, while if you choose western, like burgers or pizza, be prepared to pay a lot more. Dinner options also include you to choose various fresh fish to be charcoal grilled at market prices, with all the trimmings. Nice setting right on the... More

What else can you ask for? Its on the beach and the fire show in right there. 4 of us went for dinner and ordered about 6 things to share. Everything was incredible. We ate everything and were thoroughly satisfied. Our waiter was a little smug/not friendly so that was a turn off. Overall - great time

I had to come give a review for this restaurant because it is the best we have had on our trip thru Asia. Beach BBQ will blow your mind. I had chicken skewer (I never have chicken?) and he had White Snapper. We loved everything. The portions were big and delicious and the variety on the plate was non-stop.

Came here a number I times at night in the beach for a drink. They serve food which looked the part. They had the usual drinking games and fire dancers on the beach. A good bar to come to chill watching the sunset. Gets lively

We sat at the restaurant at a quite time and waited for about half an hour while the staff were completely ignoring us watching tv. After a while one of the staff members begrudgingly took our order however the food was a complete let down and over priced. I have eaten here many times over the years but very sadly... More

Excellent restaurant to have sundowners. Very reasonably priced and a great location at the one end of the beach.

Ate here a lot whilst staying in the big blue bungalows and it's by far one of my favourite places in Thailand. Don't think twice about eating and staying here, it's brilliant.
