Located right on the beach, Pla Pla, meaning 'many fish' in Thai, is a casual spot for an extensive selection of fish and seafood and Western and Thai favourites in the daytime. In the evening, the restaurant transforms into a stylish venue for creative Mediterranean cuisine.
At lunchtime, dine in the shade of palm trees and enjoy items such as light and tasty tomato gazpacho with prawns, grilled watermelon, avocado, cucumber pearls and mint; try the not-to-miss yellow fin tuna burger with tomato chutney, coriander, vegetables and light mustard soy cream on a sesame bun; or go local with the Phad Thai Kang wok-fried rice noodles with Samui rock lobster.
In the evening, the venue takes on a more sophisticated ambience and an entirely different menu showcasing the culinary genius of Executive Chef Alex Garés. Savour grilled scallops with pumpkin cream, sweet pickled melon, soaked almonds and lemon zest; delectable Wagyu rib-eye with potato and pancetta terrine, morning glory and green peppercorn sauce; or go for the authentic Catalan experience with Pata Negra Gran Reserva Ibérico ham with pa amb tomàquet (traditional tomato bread).
With Thai sandstone walls and floors providing a dramatic contrast to the steel-blue and silver décor that defines the restaurant's ambience, Pla Pla is the perfect setting for a beachside lunch or dinner. Seating is offered on an open, fan-cooled deck, on the open-air terrace, or right on the white-sand beach.
