We came here for lunch and had the the Red Tuna Steak Special and it was amazing. Me and my wife don't eat much so we shared the plate and it was more than enough for both of us. The tuna, salad and potatoes were amazing and the side of bread was definetly great. The view couldn't be better. Right... More

Had a lunch there, the service was good, the food somewhat below average. We had both Thai dishes and a salad, and if you are after Thai food there are better places and the chicken in the salad was a bit dry.

Cheap and wonderful international food.很棒的国际餐厅。各种类型,各种选择,提供Thai food,三明治,披萨,意面,等等,味道也很不赖,分量足。一份炒饭绝对够食量大的人吃,不像其它Thai餐厅,炒饭还不够分量。味道很好。西方人很多,服务生会英法二语。

We have had some nice relaxing time here, as the place offers also sun beds and umbrellas, free if you eat or order drinks. The food is good, priced almost same as the next door restaurants. It is a decent place, but there are better ones on the same beach.

We had several lunches at the Baobab (it was not open at night) and it was always jam packed with people, predominantly French, as are the owners. We had some fantastic food there, and the service was always very good, despite the crowds. Very rustic, floor of sand, right on the beach with beautiful views. All the sand at the... More

French beach restaurant at Lamai. Very friendly and tasty place. Fruit and coconut shakes are perfect as well as tuna tar tar (the portion is really HUGE). You can spend the whole day using free beachbed and umbrella and orderind delicious food and drinks

We came across this restaurant on trip advisor and it had good ratings. When you first go there it looks like a dingy little restaurant. The owner is from France and the food is all locally made. Very good taste and the menu is huge with a lot of variety. The washrooms are very dirty and need some work.

Decent enough. Everybody raves about the tuna tar tar so I should have had that instead of getting thai, which tasted bland compared to most restaurants in this area and was considerably more expensive than competitors. Ah well live and learn. Staff were very polite and location was perfect along the beach. They cater to the high end resorts that... More
