First when are you staying at the JWM? If it is in the Dry Season between November and April perhaps into May depending on the weather, just turn right on the beach and you will find 6 or 7 restaurants all of which serve fresh seafood. Our favourites are the furthest one, Ma Ma Greetings and just before that the Tuw Son, both great for lunch or sunset dinner.

If it is Wet Season then likely these will be closed because of the encroachment of the tides in the Wet Season. In that case catch the shuttle or taxi into Bang Niang (10 minutes) or the main township (Bang La On) where you will find plenty of restaurants all selling fresh seafood.

I would say that whatever the season lobster is now very expensive by any standards and IMO tiger prawns (which are nearly as big!!!) are a cheaper, tastier and better value for money option.

In Bang la On, Kung Seafood has a wide selection, Khao Lak Sea Food (if it has been re-opened after rebuilding), Jai, Sal Thai, Somsri, Nom's Family Restaurant, Phuw Khao Lak are all consistently good.

In Bang Niang, Hill Tribes (especially for Chiang Mai based cuisine - fish dishes are superb and King Prawns in Thai Red Whisky is a house speciality), Takieng, Lamu Restaurant, Sawasdee Seafood Restaurant, Khao Niau (for Isan based cuisine).

Something to go on I hope.

For something different tru Thai tapas at Keeper, just up from Phuw Khao Lak and Smile opposite for a different and delicious take on Thai regulars, particularly spring rolls with chicken and Massaman Curry.
