Enjoy gentle Thai flavours in mellow surrounds.

This place doesn’t seem remotely Thai when you walk into it - there are no polished wooden Buddhas and little by way of hanging lanterns. But the softly lit stone dining room, white linens and intimate vibe make it a great spot for something different when you tire of more traditional island cooking.

Food and drink

Don’t come expecting blow-your-head-off curries or stir-fries liberally spiked with chillies and peppercorns. This is a mellower kind of cooking, more universally appealing, but still filled with bright flavours and aromas.

Recommended dishes

Try the satay chicken with lemon grass dipping sauce and the sweetly spiced king prawn curry.

Ambience

Softness is the word that springs to mind here. Décor, music, chatter - all is hushed and tranquil. This is not a place to party, but a great place to chill.

Service

All is kindliness and gentle; this is the kind of place you feel looked-after and cherished.

Location

Zab is in pretty much the last house as you drive through Calonge en route to Porto Colom.

Price advice

The restaurant is pricier than it really should be. Expect to spend around 50 euros for three courses and a bottle of wine.
