I went to red snapper with friends, we had a mixture of the tapas and main courses to share & every single dish was fantastic. The cocktails are also a must. This is a great place to eat and enjoy quality food with friend's or for a date.

The food here was some of the best on the island. A type of tapas with interesting combinations of ingredients and flavours. Cocktails are very good too. Staff attentive and really do go out of the way to make you enjoy your dining experience. Try the slow cooked beef short ribs they're so succulent and tasty. The wine is reasonably... More

Food is sensational, chef is brilliant, staff are lovely, place has a warm classy ambiance without being too fancy. Great tapas for vegetarians and carnivores! Jalapeño croquettes are dynamite. You aren't going to want to share, seriously they're sooo yummy! Don't leave without getting dessert either - it's wicked good! High quality unique food. A must visit for sure.

Literally just had dinner at Red Snapper and it was delicious. Great selection of small dishes catering for everyone. My partner and I enjoyed six different plates and some of the standouts included the spinach dumplings and chorizo fried in garlic and brandy. Will definitely be coming back before I leave Ko Lanta!

We went to Red Snapper for one of our dinners out while visiting Ko Lanta. I believe the menu changes every 4-6 weeks. We started with brie and fig jam toast, I had the snapper with feta, bacon and mushrooms and my boyfriend had the garlic prawns. Everything was very filling and delicious and the service was great. We will... More

We tried a variety of dishes and some excellent, others good, all enjoyable. They have a solid wine list and extensive options. If you're expecting traditional tapas you may be surprised but otherwise the service is warm and the food good. Enjoy!

After reading the great reviews on trip advisor we visited the restaurant yesterday. It certainly lived up to its reputation! We have been in Thailand for 3 weeks and although we love Thai food we fancied a change. I am a vegetarian and the tofu satay skewers and jalapeño and cheese croquettes were amazing. Every tapas plate was great quality... More

Fabulous food and great service. We had the chicken in tequila and the pork tenderloin, both were delicious. The desserts were not quite up to the standard of the mains, the tart had a soggy bottom and rock hard crust and the cheesecake was rather dense. Will certainly visit again.

Great and tasteful food. There was a Thai bouillabaisse as a suggestion and this was excellent!!. But also the prawns with garlic are very tasteful. Second time we went there we took several tapas dishes which we shared and all of them were also very delicious! Very welcoming and friendly personnel. If you are on Ko Lanta then dine here... More
