Just had some nachos pizza and beer here. Great place . Good music great sunset views if you are lucky with the weather. Watched the sunset and were lucky to watch a thunderstorm over Chonburi.. Spectacular. . Parking can be a problem. The owner could perhaps be a little more chatty. Loved the place will be back.

Visited here with my husband and two teenage boys... we loved the pizza. My husband and I also did carry out one night for the boys and had a couple of drinks as well while we waited for our food. The mango margaritas are amazing! But the best part are the super friendly women who make this place so special!!!... More

Absolutely lovely little restaurant right on the beach. The atmosphere is so inviting and you can hear and see the ocean waves cracking through the open "walls." The music was perfectly chosen. The food was excellent. I really enjoyed the sweet potato wedges and the beef stew. There was a sign outside warning of being under staffed and that service... More

Sometimes, I like to sit back, relax, a cold apple cider in hand, good tucker (food), good music, and hear the waves crashing on the sea shore. That's what Drifters Beach Cafe is all about, and, I and my Thai partner have been there many times. The food from the snacks, to the Aussie meat pies and sausage rolls, to... More

Visiting Jomtien requires a visit to Drifters for a jug of margaritas. The jug is great value at Baht 650 and extra ice can be added to keep it cold. Try it.

This remains one of the best little secrets on the coast. A real get away from it all bar where you can really believe you are on a desert island. Always a welcome from the Aussie owner, Tony. This is a lively early doors crowd especially on a Friday. Always room for another. Well worth a visit
