I have recently been in Koh Chang and for me the Pilot is the perfect place to go both during the day and for dinner. During the day you can enjoy the best beach of Koh Chang (I loved the big tree next to the bar and the long sandy beach) with very good snacks, Thai food and drinks, while... More

We ate here twice on our first three days in Koh Chang. Super pad thai and green curry at lunchtime, and a banana pancake and eggs on toast for breakfast. Everything was delicious and great value, and the service was very respectful. We've not been for dinner yet, but the barbecued fish has always looked great whenever we've walked past.

We stayed many times at the pilot bar because the beach is very nice over there. But the service is very bad and the staff is very unfriendly. You don't feel welcome in the pilot bar. Very pity.

Lovely setting at the beach, we went here for most days to have lunch (great Pad Thai, Tom Yum Soup). We also had the Pizza one evening which was amazingly good (considering this is not really Thai Cuisine). The BBQ in the evening was very nice and they fish freshly prepared and wonderful. Would recommend thoroughly. Very near the Emerald... More

We wandered down here one afternoon, stopped to let the kids play on the tree swing, decided to sample their happy hour cocktails and ended up staying for dinner. Their cocktails were full strength and well made, not overly sugary. The vibe is ultra relaxed, with day beds, lounges and hammocks everywhere. The family is super friendly and the young... More

We've eaten here three times now (with our two children under ten). The pizzas really are very good and our girls love the gnocchi. The evenings are particularly nice eating out on tables nearer the water as the sun sets. The staff are friendly, efficient and most speak good English. Prices are what we'd expect. We tried another place nearby... More

In Pilot we had the best Massaman curry, Tom Ka Gai soup and Pad Thai tasted in Thailand. Topping the dinner up with Italian gelato made our evening complete. Pizzas are also the most Italian you can get on that island. Totally recommended!!

Yes, the dinner is served ON the beach, not at the beach. Food is of good quality and service is friendly, but food is slightly more expensive than in town (ca 250 B for a thin crust pizza) - which is acceptable for such a wonderful sunset location.

A great bar to visit on the beach front the young staff are amazingly welcoming! Food is ridiculously good value and also very tasty, drinks are also cheap, happy hour every hour!! The evening atmosphere during my visit was quiet but ideal for couples wanting a cheap date night on the beach from and feels very authentic and not commercialised!... More
