The best restaurnt in Rayong is Ollie's(sp?). It's located on the north portion of the traffic circle near the Sunsco filling station, north of Sukhumvit. Take Sukhumvit through Rayong, turn left at Soi 55. Drive north to the traffic circle (you'll see the Sunsco filling station on your right), take the left turn from the traffic circle, so that you are continuing in the northern direction, and it is on the right side of the street, just as you make the turn from the traffic circle. Ollie's blows away Kanary Bay or Rainforest. You can get New Zealand imported steaks for about 500 baht.

Beach house BBQ, Pala beach, bang chang, turn left at lotus bangchang and follow the road to you hit the beach. Very romantic setting, thai and international food. I like it ,but my opinion might be a bit biased.

Years ago used to go a seafood place just before Kanary Bay on the road from Sukhumvit. Never knew the name, but was right on a little creek, had indoor and outdoor seating. Food was excellent, but last time we went (probably 4 years ago) seemed to have gone downhill with a change in head cook.

Hey do you have better directions than go to the end of road at the beach?

I drive that way almost 4 times a week. When you drive down the road to Phala Beach from Lotius at the end you come to a small round-about that gives you the choice of left to the beach road or around the circle to the village proper.

Where is this BBQ?

No. 43 is the same as Kanary Bay (now Kantary Bay) - Best seafood (my opnion) along the same road is Laem Charoen Seafood opposite direction as Kantary Bay, view over fishery harbour. , higher price but worth it.

Anyway No. 43 Kanary bay buffet between 11.30. - 13.30 price approx. 270 thb are good value for money.

A great tip at Ban Chang - Phala beach: two danish guys has open restaurant at Phala beach "Bella Vista" it is diffecult to find, but just after Phala Cliff Hotel 700 meter on left hand when you come from Rayong side, turn left and drive along the beach, and you will get the most nice european/scandinavian food...only two thai dishes, rest is farlang food

Agree about Bella Vista best in Banchang worth trying to find it

Beach house BBQ - Turn left at lotus then follow that road all the way to the beach. When you hit the round about take a right and it will be the second shopfront on the left, look for the big sign.

It is very difficult to spot as you must walk through the garage then the kitchen to get to the courtyard on the beach. and dont worry about the lack of parking as everybody else in the village just parks on the road.

Open 4pm - 11pm, 7 days. International menu and thai food, but like i said its a romantic place to sit for awhile with a cool sea breeze.

Wife and I visited the Beach House BBQ last night--------------small and romantic as already mentioned. The service was decent and the food prep was good. The place is a bit small but Ok. Seems that in low season they may be closed on a day you would expect them to be open--------as in Saturday night? Closed for some reason.

What's interesting is now there is another choice just about 50 meters farther down the road.

A new place called "Old Phala Beach House Restaurant".

Just opened about 10 days ago. As for atmosphere it makes the Beach BBQ seem bland. The Thai woman owner and husband did a very nice job fixing up this 100 year old house into a nice Bali style restaurant with direct beach access.

We came on the place after eating so we had no appetite but we talked to the lady owner and husband for a bit. They are specializing in authentic Thai foods and have a husband/wife team for the cooking. We will certainly come back and give them a try. Most authentic and romantic place in the area. Parking area reserved in an open lot directly across the street from the place.

So from the small roundabout in Phala go past the BBQ place and another 50 meters is about right,,,,,,,,parking on the right and restaurant on the left.

We've had good meals too at the BBQ. Bella Vista has very nice food, big platefulls. Go to the same round about and take a left, about 3-400m on the right is a soi, Bella Vista about 500m down on the right.

Yeah I have seen the soi to the Bella Vista and we will give it a try one day soon.

I have learned that the Beach BBQ was closed on the last Saturday due to an unexpected problem and that is not their "normal" procedure. I did not mean to imply that they were closed every Saturday. I hope to enjoy many nice meals there along with a cold libation. My first experience was enjoyable and I hope to have more.

We went to the 'Old Phala Beach House Restaurant' tonight and were very impressed. The food was very good, the price was fair and the souroundings were excellent. It was a lot like being on one of the islands. The sea was only 30 feet away and the ambience was great. We paid less then 800 baht for a very nice meal and a drink each. Its quite small but that gives it a feeling of exclusivity. Highly recommended. We will be back there soon.

Wifey and I ate there early this week around 1830 and the tide was in and very nice atmosphere.

Dinner for two and a couple beer were about 600.

The waves breaking on the beach is nice. Not sure what the place would be like when the tides change as the water recedes way back and maybe the smell will be overpowering? Wait and see next time.
