perfect place to hang whilst waiting for your boat, or come to drink and check out local scene

Good food at good prices, friendly service :) Located right by the pier, so instead of waiting for your boat on a hard bench by the pier, hang out here for a beer or a meal or both

We chose to eat here as we got dropped off with our luggage at the pier and it was literally the closest restaurant. The food was great and the prices were reasonable. It took a while for our food but it wasn't a problem as we were waiting for our ferry anyways. Would recommend to anyone who wants to kill... More

Safety Stop Pub is always a good atmosphere. My first time here was in December of 2013.... and I just kind of stayed haha. Big menu full of plenty of great options. The Thai food is especially top notch. Service is good and with the open feel to the place it's just a great spot. I'll keep going here and... More

If you've been in Asia a while & need a western food fix, Safety Stop is a good bet. Bangers & mash & burger were awesome! The prices are approaching western but that's the same everywhere. Cider choices are better than most too. I read somewhere it has a 'lucious beer garden' this is a bit over the top description... More

Stop here for a bite as soon as you get off the ferry, great thai food and very nice take-away sandwiches. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Try the "Don Pedro", it's amazing.
