Drinks service & order taking were a little slow, but the kitchen is remarkably efficient & the qulaity... More

Red Snapper is nothing short of amazing, the food is heavenly, yet it is not pretentious, whilst it is slightly more expensive than the other restaurants in the area it is still an absolutely amazing bargain for what you receive, if this restaurant was in London you would pay over £200 and believe me it would still be worth it!...

Great choice of tapas, I am a person with a small appetite so it's nice to have lots of smaller dishes to nibble on. The passion fruit tart was lovely highly recommended. The restaurant itself is very clean and I liked that I could see into the kitchen (also very clean).

Visited as part of a group and the service was very good. I love the food here every time I visit and the tapas/starter options are super. The steak was really nice and I had some lovely red wine was well.

This may be a little more pricey than the rest of restaurants found on the island but worth every cent. Good option when you get tired of Pad thai etc..they have a large selection mixing European influence with South African and Thai (you'll find Spanish chorizo, Italian gnocchis or South African wine). Excellent gnocchis as a starter. We then add... More

Nothing to complain about as far as the food was concerned, but the surroundings and noisy road isn't too great. For the price I would have expected much better cutlery - it lets the place down.

This place was a real find. A really interesting menu that combines western style food with Thai flavours. The service was fantastic too, and the open kitchen meant that you could see it was spotless. It really stands out from some of the average Thai restaurants aimed at tourists.

I went last night with my husband and 2 kids. We were really looking forward to a nice dinner, but from the moment we came in we felt very unwelcomed. I sense it was because of the kids. (They didnt have any highchairs which to me confirmed this....) The waitress talked back to me when I commented that the food... More

Interesting menu, very tasty food. Staff is good. It's my 3rd visit to Lanta and Red Snapper is the best money value restaurant on the island. Reservation recommended in high season. You will be seated for dinner at the bar if no reservation which is perfectly fine except the stools dont have back support and at some point it gets... More

The restaurant is welcoming and the staff are really friendly. We ate here several times while in Ko Lanta and would rate it as one of the best! The food is fresh and they have a varied menu with specials changing daily.

Thank you,our pleasure. But our specials,I have to say,don't change on a daily base,more once or twice a week,just for everybody's information. Hope to see you back one day on our lovely little island. More

An exciting list of small plates,starters and main courses during the night. A nice bar environment with fine wines,cocktails and spirits.
