Bumped into 2 expats when we got to Fisherman Village and they recommended the Friendly Frog. Simple local food that is freshly prepared and well cooked. Ate there every day, either for lunch or dinner. Very friendly staff

The friendly frog is one those amazing places where you can find authentic food at a good price, most dishes are 100THB and the restaurant is in the fron of her house. We like the atmosphere, always busy and it is good to reserve.
