Name of beach restaurant beside Beyond?

We had a really nice dinner at the beach restaurant beside the new Beyond Khao Lak Resort, but I can´t remember the name of the restaurant, it ended with -son. The staff was so friendly, food was really good and the setting with candles on the beach very romantic. As a matter in fact, there was a young couple, very much in love, at the table next to us. But after a few minutes of screaming from our small children this couple will probably think twice before they are starting a family of their own, that´s what I call REAL birth control :-).

Anyway, I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with the name of the restaurant, thanks!

Might be wrong, but one mentioned recently was called Tewson .

Anyway Arandora will know, so just stay tuned.

Not quite Specz. It is the Pason. Tew Son is up by the JWM. :-)

As a matter of interest this is the only one - at the moment - between the Le Meridien and the BKL. Just over the creek in front of the MaiKhaoLak resort, due to open November 2012, in addition to the long established and still most popular Ma Ma Lek's, there is feverish activity adding more to the ones added during the Wet Season. Soon there will be a row just like near the JWM.

.... and another quiet, secluded lounging/dining spot bites the dust! :-(

Thanks a lot for the Pason Arandora! It's hard to separate them all, Tonson, Tew Son, Pason..

But I wouldn´t say it's the only one between Le M and the BKL, there's a small narrow restaurant beside Le Meridien called Coconut Beach or something like that. It´s more for lunch though, it´s not directly on the beach and there are hundreds of mosquitos there in the evening. They are having a good taxi service though.

Thanks again.

The only place at the moment between Le M and the BKL, other than the Pason is a massage place with a bar. No name outside and no food menu. Is this the Coconut Beach?

Now on the other side of the creek first is the Original Sabai Sabai (closed and derelict), little beach shop, massage place, Siam Restaurant & Bar, New Restaurant/Bar/Massage (under construction, Tawan Dang Restaurant & Rasta Bar, New Restaurant/Bar/Massage (under construction), Ma Ma & Mr.Lek's, New Restaurant/Bar/Massage (under construction), Jasmine Restaurant, Coco Restaurant, Kun Dang (formerly Pak Weep Seafood) Restaurant and right at the very end on the other side of th beach road looking over to Bang Sak Beach, the Sun Sand (Sea?) Beach Restaurant.

Probably next time we go in about 3 days any vacant spaces on the Ma Ma's side will be taken up at this rate. Obviously all staking their place for when the new Mai Khao Lak opens but since this is not until November, most of them will need reconstructing after the Wet Season!

Great update Arandora!

When we left Le Meridien on December 21st there was still a restaurant between the creek at the eastern end of LM and the massage place you are talking about that are also seving drinks but no food. The restaurant was called something with "Coconut". It was just 2-3 meters wide between a high wall and a small fence with maybe 5 tables after eachother leading up to the kitchen. The guy who ran the place had a Jamaican hat and they often played Rastafari music. They had taxi and laundry service too, but it took quite a while to reach the main road with the taxi since they are making an upgrade of the old dirt road using concrete blocks.

Maybe it´s already gone, things are happening fast in Khao Lak.

The Rasta guy was at the bar/massage place when we walked past. Perhaps the Coconut sign had gone missing?
