“Very pleasant restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

First of all, I'd like to point that this restaurant is misplaced on the interactive map of trip advisor so if you look randomly for a place to eat by area, you'll never find this place !
Basically, it is located on the road to "Koh Lanta old town" on a steep downhill after a "kind of" pass. Not the first restaurant when you go down but just after it. Easy to find !

The view is what gives its charm to the spot (it could be perfect without that big antenna but perfection is hard to reach in this world)

Food and service were really good ! Not a amazing wow but way way more than acceptable !
While we sat with my wife, the owner (?) came with two kids and asked us kindly to have a chitchat with them to help them improve their english. Was a sweet moment :)

I would definitely recommend this place for the nice landscape/seascape panorama !!!

Fantastic views and service with a smile . The soft shell crab salad and yellow curry was the best meal I had in koh lanta.

“Read the reviews and gave it ago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

Lovely location and views were great. Had the soft shell crab salad as recommended and it was great. Steamed fish was amazing so was the service. Have to give this ago. We paid 4700 bh and had loads of wine and Mai Tai's also so not too pricy for 7.

“Great views, delicious Thai food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

Had the best steamed whole fish with garlic, lime and (mildly spicy) chilli sauce that I have ever had in 10 years living in Thailand. Lovely Khun On was bubbly and took great care of us - nothing too much trouble. Also great value. Cheap and cheerful in terms of furniture etc. but don't miss it. Will definitely go back when I return to Ko Lanta.

“Soft shell crab is to die for! Food is amazing and the views are breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

We went here for a friend's birthday. The restaurant is up in the high hills of Koh Lanta. You have to be very careful travelling here as the road is exceptionally steep. However it is well worth a journey as you will be rewarded with exceptional views of the Malacca Strait.
The food is exceptional and I recommend trying the soft shell crab.
