A very good meal on Koh Lanta, and a good variation from thai food. We had a load of amazong and tasty tapas, dessert, cocktail and juice, and it was more than well worth the approx. 1500 thb. Will definately come back!

Second year on Koh Lanta and went to Red Snappers new location. Food, as always, was excellent. Great variety and choice of top quality food at a decent price. Not particularly traditional Thai but massive choice and something for every taste. Love the option of variety of small dishes or wonderful main courses. Great staff and atmosphere.

It is a place where I enjoyed eating. The setting is quite simple, not over decorated. We have been eating at the bar. The service is nice and friendly. The food is quite subtle (we had some mexican influence food such as tacos + tuna fish) prepared by the dutch couple in the open kitchen (you can watch them preparing... More

We went here for our last night in Lanta so we were willing to spend a bit more. It's definitely on the expensive side but the food was absolutely stunning.

So I was recommended Red Snapper from a friend who used to live on Koh Lanta. Happily, as it turns out, my guest house is 2 doors down. Tried the food last night and was absolutely blown away. The price was fairly expensive compared to the other restaurants and offerings nearby at about twice the price but then the food... More

What a fantastic meal we had at Red Snapper Ko Lanta. After travelling for 4 months around South east Asia the food here was the best we've had so far, a great mix of flavours and spices all beautifully presented. Do not miss out !!

This restaurant was such an unexpected discovery. The best restaurant experience I had in Koh Lanta Wished I had discovered it earlier. It is innovative, creative, nouvelle cuisine. Lunch was more Tapas Style and you bet I am going there for dinner tonight. My ״Last Supper " in Koh Lanta. The smoked salmon with seaweeds and wasabi made me think... More

If you're craving some good westernized food, check this place out! I had an amazing goat cheese salad. The homemade pasta was pretty good, and the quesadilla was super delicious. The wait staff was pretty rude (only reason not giving 5 stars), although it almost feels like that is part of the appeal (like soup nazi?). Anyway, definitely check it... More

Good place to add to your Koh Lanta restaurant list. We had the salmon and the tuna and a few cocktails. Would go back. POSITIVES: 1. Good size portions. 2. Clean restaurant. 3. Good wait staff. They spoke English and knew the menu. 4. Full bar and they know how to make cocktails. NEGATIVES: 1. on roadside. 2. Sides were... More

My friend and I decided to come here after we realised they done a cheese board. After traveling south east Asia for the past three months, it was an absolute treat coming here. Without a doubt some of the best food I have had in that period of time. Each of the tapas we had were on point: taste, presentation,... More

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