This is the main restaurant for the resort and offers the biggest breakfast buffet I have ever seen which was fabulous. They are then open from 1130 till about 2200 serving Thai and English food. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced, my only negative is they don't do enough to minimise the flies. One night we had to give... More

Of the 3 restaurants available at the resort this one comes in last. It's not that the food is bad, it's just that the others are tastier. The saving grace is the friendly staff and the themed buffet dinners with shows. The breakfast is nice but they could find a way to keep the fresh juices cold. For our dinner... More

This is the central restaurant of the Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort. We had the daily buffet breakfast here and the Asian buffet dinner on one night. For the breakfast, the spread was quite good, with a wide range of juices and fresh mangoes available, plus a decent international spread. Buffet dinner was much more average, considering the prices... More
