The food was delicious and we had a jack fish BBQ with a couple of jumbo tiger prawns that were BBQ also with a side dip of lemon garlic and chilli, then we also shared some green lipped mussels with garlic and butter. I'd only say unlike L Maldee where the service was amazing and the owner takes the time to advise which sauce and how to have the fish prepared at lanta seafood when I asked the guy behind the fish station, he said ' well however you want it' which is fair enough but it's nice when the experts can advise when they work with the fish all the time. The restaurant was extremely packed and the waitress were working hard as it was the weekend so all the locals and huge groups of people were out for dinner, however you could feel their stress and it was. Almost like you seemed a bit of a hassle to them, but we probably picked the worst time 7.30pm and at the weekend to go, as I would recommend for the food which was yummy.

We ate here twice during our stay in Ko Lanta. The food was fantastic - fresh shrimp, squid and fish on the BBQ served with a sauce of your choice (pepper & garlic in our case). The restaurant was full both times and on one of the occasions (when we arrived a little later) they had sold out of a lot of the fish we wanted. The staff were friendly and helpful. The vibe was lively and had an informal cafe feel. Very reasonably priced for the quality and service. Would highly recommend and one day hope to return. Fantastic!

This is a place Thai people visit when they have something to celebrate, always a good sign!
The seafood is great, we've ordered BBQ prawns in tamarind sauce. Efficient staff who have everything under control even if the restaurant is completely full. Friendly prices.

Not getting some of the recent reviews on here - we've been here for years and yes, it's cheap and cheerful, but the food is great.

It's a fish restaurant - order fish!! We has prawns with basil and garlic, a wonderful seafood red curry with coconut roasted in tin foil and two beers for £9!! Eaten over the ocean, what could be better.

The service is brusque but friendly and, if it's change hands etc, how come it's many times busier than every other restaurant there (no-one trying to drag you in)? Because it's great value and excellent food!!
