We arrived at the Koala Bar at 5 pm and enjoyed some beer and cocktails as sundowners. Then we changed our seats with the beautiful sea view to have dinner. I had barbecue rips and my friend salmon with vegetables. Both were excellent. The service was attentive yet discrete. The prices are a little above the mean, but very fair... More

This bar and restaurant is not one to miss. My fiancee and I ate there several times during our stay and enjoyed the friendly service, seeing the well cared for dogs and the excellent variety of Thai and international food - particularly the huge rack of ribs and tasty blue cheese pizza - and extensive range of cocktails - especially...

We won a dinner for two in a lottery and enjoyed a great dinner in a very nice athmosphere close to the beach. There was a lot of good food (my husband loved the ribs) and the Mexican fajitas were very tasty. Also the waitress was very helpful and took good care of us.

Not much to say. Was there in the off season and Todd was a great host and the local Phad Thai and Spicy Fried Noodles were better than the locally owned restaurants. Highly recommended!

Had the pleasure of staying only 2 doors down from this place for 2 weeks! Great food, the ribs were amazing, half rack huge! Drunken Chicken also a favourite, Rib Steak cooked perfectly. Service was exceptional from the whole crew, dining in the sand with beautiful sunsets every night. This has to be one of my favourite spots! Thank you... More

Eat really well prepared food, and let Tod tell you some of his stories, he will keep you amused for ages.
