We visited a few times over the 17 days we were in Bangtao and I must say the staff are friendly we visited with family 5 adults and a 20 month old and it was brilliant for a chilled beer or coffee ! The service was great although we waited a little longer for my sisters drinks (Irish coffee, iced latte and daquiri) they were worth the wait!! We would def recommend the Bistro to future travellers !

It’s a good place to have a restaurant type meal. The dish was okay, I enjoyed it but it wasn’t fabulous. Definitely something I could cook at HOME lol.

The pina colada was also nice, but I was weary of the ice.

A lot of mosquitos so if you dine here ask for mosquito spray

We might expected to much after reading on TripAdvisor. Ordered a mojito, it was full of lime seeds. Not bad food, But not the best either.

Dear Christian P, We at the Bistro Thanks you for review.

We are glad that you gave us a response regarding our drink. We have changed our lime to seedless so perhaps next time when you have Phuket in your mind you will pass by and give us a second review.

Best regards

In April 2016 we first visited the Bistro when it was almost the only game in town due to other restaurants being on holiday, however it was excellent and a lifesaver. We were smacking our lips in anticipation when we returned in October 2017. Imagine our disappointment on our return to find that the service was extremely slow and disinterested, the food was also very chewy and the curry was way too hot. When asked our opinion at the end of the meal the head waitress did not even say she was sorry for our disappointment or try to appease us in any way at all. We will not hurry back on our next visit to Bangtao.
