I came to your restaurant yesterday. I had a good time. Enjoyed my food (Chicken Caesar Salad, muesli/fruit yogurt, fresh fruit juice). So I decided to come back today with a friend of mine. Deception about the food but more important, we left the restaurant because of the staff! Let me explain myself, yesterday the restaurant was pretty busy. Your... More

We stayed at the nature rock when we were on our holiday. It's located at the sand beach and got a large pool. We stayed at a small bungalow. It wasn't very expensive but for the price ok. The food at the restaurant wasn't really good so we went to other places. All in all a great accommodation and very... More

The service is pretty awful and they make you feel like an stupid tourist. Nevertheless, the atmosphere is great, in a paradisiac beach, with a good menu offer at a really fair price. After descovering this place, we came back 3 days in a row just for this reasons, not for the service since it was everyday worse. Specially the... More

This place has a great atmosphere, right on the edge of the beach. It easily accommodates young party people, couples, families with young children, teenagers etc. Service is friendly, efficient and helpful.

Description
Nature Rocks Restaurant and Bar Nature Rocks Restaurant and Bar is as old as the resort itself. When the resort first opened in 1999, the restaurant was one of the only few places backpackers finding themselves lost in Lonely Beach, either because of its imperturbable tranquility or its seemingly far-off location from the more developed locales like White Sand Beach or Kai Bae Beach back then, would be able to take shelter for food after a long day out in the sun at as the number of restaurants was only microscopic. The restaurant that you are now ensconced in while soaking in the beautiful view of the ocean and trying to decide between Pad Thai or Green Curry (why not order both?), however, is not what used to stand here initially. Over the course of the resort's food scene, we have gone from being a mere no-frills joint with just enough tables to keep staying guests from going famished to now a quite coming-together beachfront eatery - the current version - which boasts a sprawling thatch-roofed pavilion, quaint and quirky bar, and split level dining spaces with assorted seating arrangements for diners visiting from everywhere. Despite the growing up part, the simple concept of the restaurant remains unchanged : we want to make good comfort food by using only fresh produce from local farmers and sell it at a reasonable price. We offer a gamut of authentic Thai dishes with recipes derived from our old-school chef who has been the kitchen's matron since the very beginning. Highlights from the her brainchildren include our scrumptious Stir-fried Chicken with Cashew Nuts, which many tout as the creme de la creme of its kind. Well, at least in the island! Our aromatic Baked Prawns with Vermicelli is also like no other as we opt to use bacon - arguably everyone's to-die-for unwholesome delicacy of all time - instead of pork fat, which is usually added in the dish for the sake of keeping the glass noodles untangled but always ends up being contemptuously dismissed unless chunks of pure pork fat are something you are after. For diners fancying to experience chowing down on their food right off some unconventional container, we have Pineapple Fried Rice served in a freshly cut pineapple shell and Tom Yum Prawns with Young Coconut Meat served in a fresh whole coconut waiting for you. Not only the Thai food is what the restaurant specializes in. Yes, shoutouts to all those salads, pasta, pizzas, burgers and Mexican delights lovers. We do have all. Our western food dishes were fashioned by a veteran Finnish chef who landed the job at the resort in 2006 and successfully talked us into - then still a humble restaurant with limited Western fare - building him a separate playground where he would roll with ample leeway as well as much cooler kitchenware needed for his Western cooking (for instance, an oven for baking pizzas, which is never called for in Thai cuisine!). Prior to his departure some good years later, he extensively trained the fellow chefs, making sure that his handed over recipes would always end up tasting the same. His secrets to making luscious homemade balsamic syrup and tomato sauce are still hidden in our kitchen's trove. Popular picks include Insalata Caprese, Al Pesto Genovese, Cheese and Bacon Beef Burger, and Toasted Cheese Nachos.
