Try not to miss Fat Turtle when you're in Koh Lanta. It's hard to beat the food or the sunset view. Authentically nice people too. I love this place.

Great location on the beach with an awesome view. The food was delicious, had the steak and chicken caesar salad, all spot on. The drinks were good and fairly priced. Had a live band that was good and most importantly the staff were excellent, very...friendly and all orders were delivered correctly for a group of 15. Well Done!!! See you next time.More

Wonderful location and friendly staff! They were very welcoming and service was quick. Food was lovely and the sea view is stunning. If you are visiting Koh Lanta then make sure you visit this place for a drink or food!

I've no idea what the issue was when we visited but everything seemed to be going wrong. People who had booked were having to wait ages for their table, groups were being crammed on to tables that were too small for them, everyone was having...to wait an age to order, and then when the food did come out, orders didn't come together so families and groups were not eating at the same time. The biggest issue was the owner's refusal to acknowledge to anyone that anything was wrong or offer any kind of explanation or apology. I can't help but think that doing this would have eased some people's frustrations. Yes, the food was good and the cocktails were delicious. It was the overall attitude and the manner with which the problems were dealt with (or not) which means I won't go back on my next visit and I'd suggest others try any of the other lovely restaurants nearby first.More

I had multiple meals at The Fat Turtle during my vacation to Koh Lanta and they were both great! The prices are a little higher than other places on the main drag simply because it's closer to the beach -- however the food was excellent...as was the service, and the VIEW, so it was certainly worth it!More

Lovely food. View is incredible, right next to the sea. I would recommend going during the day to appreciate the view. Highly recommend the sea-bass with grilled prawns.

We booked a table right on the front via Facebook but needn’t have bothered as very quiet! We had vegetable spring rolls & prawn/asparagus/corn tempura to start which was excellent. I had baked snapper which came with a prawn & sun dried tomato risotto &...small salad - absolutely amazing - cooked to perfection. My hubby had a Waikiki burger which was equally delicious. Portions are very generous & could not eat all of main course so would suggest ordering 1 starter between two. Restaurant is set above the beach at south end of Long Beach. Views of sunset were amazing! Would definitely recommend this restaurant - excellent food & friendly staff - will be back soon!!More

A really cozy, more fine dining place, right on the beach. A extensive menu with local and international dishes. Reservation is preferred.

I Had the calamari for lunch. Not fresh at all. Rubbery. I have had better frozen calamari from the supermarket . It’s a shame they haven’t kept their standards up.
