We stayed in this resort and caught a buggy to eat at this restaurant. It is dimly lit and very romantic, although we were on a girls trip LOL. They gave us mosquito spray which was nice of them. The food was tasty and really filling. The drinks were also great.

We arrived late at the resort and after a stroll around the grounds decided to eat here. Despite not having a reservation we were fortunate enough to secure one of the many empty tables and we sat down to enjoy the view over the resort and out to sea. All was well with the world.

The best thai restaurant, located inside the Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, is, indeed, the only good restaurant inside the resort, being located on the hillside of the village ,with really nice view. You can find a lot of different dishes, from fish to rice and meat. Food is medium spicy and very well prepared and presented. Recommended.

Lovely unusual teak building houses this restaurant - felt very intimate and friendly. Food was excellent and authentic. You can get a hotel golf cart there if you don't want to walk the short distance from the rest of the hotel
