Went there on the advice of Tripadvisor. That night, they had a duck special so we went for that while the kids stuck to food they were familiar with (burgers, fries). The duck blew me away, was extremely fresh and basically just melted in my mouth. Owner was very friendly and the older kids had some fun practicing their French... More

On the Facebook homepage of the restaurant is written, that it's closed until late August. Just be aware. We didn't check the page and stood in front of a closed place...

Interesting, enjoyable lunch. We had a two hour wait for the ferry to Koh Phi Phi and this gem of a restaurant was just a short walk from the bus station. Some reviews mentioned that the food was overpriced, but we found it was a good value and delicious. Definitely a must-visit when in town.

Here you'll find a French-Thai fusion. We had Pad Thai, Massaman Curry, fruit shakes and fried rice. It was comparatively expensive, but it was brilliantly tasty and we received a wealth of insight into the cooking methods from our waiter (also the owner). We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.

Had Thai noodles and fruit shakes. Food was very average. A little overpriced for the given quality. The owner was very friendly though. Were a bit disappointed after all the positive reviews.
