We ate both western and thai food here and weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The English breakfasts, eggs and good old pg tips tea were great and very welcome after a late night before. Both the thai and western food we ate at night were lovely. They also do white wine which is lovely and very... More

There is nothing special in this restaurant except for the ribs. They are just awesome. I recommend the Half Rack of ribs. It comes with french fries and a nice salad. There is a big variety of different sauces, but you should just ask for a extra portion of the BBQ souce they use for the ribs. After you finished... More

He ribs are the best in Thailand and have been consistently good for years. The corn on the cob is now cheap canned corn. The side salad for 120 baht ($4) is overpriced and very small. Used to be better 2 years ago. Still great ribs.

Ordered the half rack of ribs. It was cooked fresh when ordered, plenty of flavor and sauce, with the meat falling off the bones. It came with coleslaw, corn (with butter), and french fries. Overall pretty good. The staff was quite rude and spent their time gossiping in Thai, thinking we wouldn't understand. I had ordered a plate of rice... More

Liked the look of the menu here as I fancied Western food . Ordered chicken and ribs (quarter chicken and half rack of ribs) - thought they had served me Desperate Dan's portion by mistake .The ribs covered the plate (for a comparison they were the size of my partners handbag), had to fight through them until my jaw ached...

We dined here twice over 3 days on Lanta. It's just amazing. The quality of the food, the service and the feel of the restaurant in general is just perfect. After travelling around Asia for 2 months and getting food poisoning twice we really needed something that tasted like home. We had the fish and chips and the Lasagne. Couldn't... More

An absolutele must for those days/nights when you really need filling up with european food. The Tavern Breakfast is second to none, their Ribs are just amazing and the pork loins melt in your mouth. The staff are amongst the nicest we have ever come across on Koh Lanta. Highly recommend this restaurant.
