We had a snack and beers there yesterday. Place run down and cleanliness questionable. The service and staff friendliness not up to usual Thai standard. Very disappointing and I wonder why it scores so highly. There are much better places to go for special meals. Maybe the fact that it is one of the few places where you can escape... More

Great location pretty much on the beach. A 500m walk from our accom at Laguna. Service was OK and the food was good but not great. Prices are reasonably expensive for Thai food but way cheaper than what you will pay in your resort if staying around this area. I am pretty sure they offer transport to and from the... More

Yes, the location might be good but there are better locations along Bangtao/Layan Beach. Since Tony moved, the location is not as good as it used to be and there is a very unfriendly vibe since we were there last time (late 2015). The food is obviously catering for high season tourists but I wish they would make an effort... More

We staid in hotel near by. During one week, we have been here 3(!) times. Any time when we went to other place - everybody missed Tony's seafood. Yes, seafood here is very fresh, well cooked and offers a variety of famous thai dishes and any kind of seafood. Athmosphere here is very quiet and romantic. Staf is friendly.

Here we are again! It's a trek from Rawai (down south); almost an hours drive. That's credit to Tony's. On the way here I asked my gf: 'where have we ever driven a 2hr return trip just for a meal?'. Tony Restaurant is the antithesis to Baan Rim Pa (see review yesterday). It's half the price but twice the quality.... More

Tony's bar still here despite Thai Army trashing his other restaurant. The best rum cocktails. They have a huge selection of fresh live fish and shell food to choose from, as well as loc al dishes.

Set slightly back on the beach Tony'S provides a great service and delicious food. Try the pina colda - you won't be disappointed!

This restaurant had to move twice for various reasons and is now situated near the Möwenpick apartments on the beach in the Laguna area. Lovely quiet place to sit down, having a drink, lunch or dinner. The service is friendly, the food used to better in our opinion whereas proces went up.
