I love Koh Lanta, and every time I go there, I love the bikeride down to Old Lanta and Caoutchouc for a mango shake. Great health food also, the place is chill, and the view spectacular.

What a find! Loved chatting with the owner, he was also playing some great music. The view out back is incredible. Super quiet at the edge of Old Town. We only had drinks but I was curious about the Indian influence in the food. Next time!

We stayed at an AirBNB next door so we went to Caoutchouc a few times and loved it more each time. The views from the porch are stunning and it's located all the way at the end of the road that runs through Old Town so it's very peaceful. This cool French man owns and runs the place so he... More

Whew in Lanta Old Town, make sure you stop here. A little haven away from the "commercial buzz" of old Lanta. At the round-about, facing the pier, go right all the way to the end of that street. Do not stop until you see the water. The ride is worth it! Fresh drinks (don't ask for a coca-cola here....) and... More

I visited with my girlfriend for lunch, the sun was out and the waves lapping at the rocks at the base of the wooden decking. The owner didn't have a menu, he knew it off by heart, we had a couple of very tasty shakes and then chicken salad. It was very carefully cooked, you can watch how much passion... More

Friendly and comfortable hideout place! Cosy. Could spend the whole day on that terrace, listening nice music and enjoying the view and the owners hospitality. Go there!

Do not judge the book by its cover! Although the place has very nice decoration, the temperamental and rude owner is a good enough reason to forget about everything else. We were brought over by a friend for new year's eve dinner. I was with my husband and my two kids, age 2 and 6. Dinner was indian curry, apparently... More

Caoutchouc, built on stilt, on the other side of old town Koh Lanta, is a very relaxing place, to enjoy fresh drinks and food, and stunning views ...There is no menu there, so just ask what i'm cooking today ...I made delicious lunch salads, and pasta daily ...For fresh fish let me know in advance, and i will prepare it for you ...You welcome to ask for prices before sitting ...Prices are standard for this type of establishment ...Expect to pay 80 bahts for a drink, and a minimum of 200 baht for food, 280 bahts maximum ...This is what it takes to keep this wonderful place going on ...
