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.

We went out tonight with plans to try the BBQ, as recommended here. To our suprise it had a sign outside saying 'Closed forever'.

Any idea what happened, other than it closing. Any chance of 'forever' coming to an end soon?

I believe the owner has staffing problems. Trying to keep a decent cook on staff so they decided to close and give it a rest.

Did you walk up the street about 50 meters more? Really nice new place called Old Beach House Restaurant,,,,,worth a try, we enjoyed it

Yes, we went there instead. Although very, very impressed with the Old Beach Restaurant we wanted to try the BBQ after its mention here. Anyway we had another great meal at the Old Beach Restaurant in the very relaxing surroundings. I think that next time we are going to try one of the other places in Ban Chang that were also mentioned in this topic.

Sadly do not have the name to hand as back in HK. Road down from the 3 ( opposite Emerald GC ) all the way down to the welcome arch of the beach. Turn left about 200 yards, place set back from the road , always has sign open in English. When next there I will get the Thai named copied down..........

Can you be a bit more specific on Rayong Brewery in Rayong Town please. I don't know Rayong at all as I only moved to Ban Chang a week ago.

if you can get yourself to Bangkok Rayong hospital head east

go over the junction ( right to beach left to Suk)

go through the karaoke bars, nightclubs and shops

you're driving parallel with Sukhumvit and the beach but halfway between them for 5-10 minutes depending on traffic

until you feel like you're nearing the end/ old quarter ( close to the new Casa IV serviced apartments is)

it's on the left-

big buidlind, big carpark, neon sign red stripy badge/ shield

one thing to add is it gets kicking really late-- people arrive about 9,10,11,12

if you're there at 7 / 8 for a nice meal it will feel really dead ( it's a big space too)

be there late to enjoy it the most-- friday/sat best as that's when all the thais come to let their hair down and this really is a thai place-- very few farangs in here

Thanks.

Seems out of the way from where I am so it'll be a low priority visit until we've visited all the nearer places.

By the way do you know there's now a Tawang Daeng on the road down to PMY Resort.

On teh right just before the crossroads that's about half way down.

They took over an existing place but they don't have the microbrews there.

So on Friday night I took the missus out for our first meal out in Ban Chang.

We chose the Bella Vista as she wanted to see what Danish Food is like, but there didn't seem to be any and the menu was mainly Mexican and 1 Thai dish.

So we ordered Burritos and the small pork ribs. Small? it could have fed me for a week, I only ate half of it and took the other half home. The missus was similarly stuffed on only 1 of the 2 burritos presented.

Both meals were delicious and well presented and the plates were overflowing.

Price was reasonable but we could have done with half the food at half the price.

Only criticism is that the restaurant could do with some fans as the weather was a bit sticky and no breezes to move the air.
