Saw this on trip adviser and gave it a try. Tried the gulash which were the best gulash I ever tried. The salad served on the side was nice with the vinegar to give the meal an nice accidity. They didn't had any Thai food but the western food that we tried was very good.

This place is a hidden gem! They have a new cook and the food is better than ever, especially the western food. Every Sunday there is a BBQ night, so I would highly recommend anyone to try their steaks and the fajitas were to die for! If you are travelling with kids, who can be picky eaters, this is the...

Popped in for a little something in the evening while we were wandering around Saladan town. The German lady running the place is just wonderful and there are cats everywhere. You really realx while you follow what they do.. or especially when they don't. Food was excellent too.. we only took some appetizers but were rally happy with them.

For a change from Thai food here is perfect. Their steaks were great, the sauces excellent and the potato dishes delicious. They were a chef down the night we were there so the male owner stepped in. Two of us had to return our steaks as they were significantly under cooked and my steak and potatoes came out barely tepid... More

You can choose between European or Thaï cuisine. The service is very kind. The cuisine is very tasty, the menu not big, a sign of quality and fresh products. The portions are generous. The prices are around 170 bahts for the main course, 20 bahts extra rice, wich is very good in comparison with the quality. The place is well... More

This restaurant is off the main road near the Lanta bazaar end of the shopping centre in Saladan town in Ko Lanta and not by the water, easily missed, it is a real MUST and you need to find it. We stumbled upon it by accident and ate there two nights in a row, that should say enough. The owner... More
