“Do not eat here!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I used to live in Phangan for over 3 years,so I visited this place numerous times. Its always been a 'very' expensive place to eat. However recently I returned to Phangan, and unfortunately visited this 'restaurant?' again. From the get go the staff were rude and ignorant, then the female German owner joined in, despite the fact we were sat on the outside table, in 40c heat, the owner approached us and very abruptly demanded that my younger brother put a shirt on. This I could understand if we were in an a la carte restaurant, but this is cafe! Next we placed our orders for various breakfast type meals. Out of 6 meals ordered only 3 and a half were delivered, after a long wait. What was described in the menu as a 'Dutch Breakfast' is actually a small sandwich, on white sliced bread bought from Tesco, with a sliver of ham and an egg. My Wife's continental breakfast was only half delivered and 2 other meals were never seen. I eventually approached the owner and told her what I thought of her service, the quality of her food, and the wholly inappropriate pricing, and the fact that she's been charging these ridiculous prices for years. Her reply? This is a restaurant, things go wrong?? Sorry but you employ waiters to take orders from customers, then deliver these to the kitchen, who prepare them, and then its back to the waiters to deliver the food. I know I've over simplified this, but should it be that difficult?? Please, please, please save your time and effort and more importantly DO NOT GO TO THIS CAFE.....its just not good and the owner obviously has no idea how to run a cafe.....

“Great breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

They make German bread, cakes, French croissants, salted appetizers, thai and international food.... a huge choice for breakfasts and all are very good and tasty! Nice place situated just in front of Thongsala pier (the 1st main city in Koh Phangan). The place is all opened and confortable. The owner is a very nice lady, always smiling and polite.
