“Great seafood, but was better last year”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We have visited this restaurant several times over the last 5 years. It has great fresh fish, but we were disappointed this time with a too salty tamarind sauce. Toilet facilities has not improved over the years and are what to expect from a newly started backyard restaurant. However as the town grows, this is almost main street and the prices are also main street so place for improvement.

“Good choise for great seafood!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I've visited Aree Bar Bar earlier and came back since the fish selection was great last time. It did not let us down this time either!

Service was friendly, and the whole family really took part running the place. Atmosphere is nice and food is great. Selection includes also pasta dishes so everyone should find something that suits from the menu. Fish dishes were once again delicious!

“The best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

I think this might be my second review of this restaurant but it is just so good. Took our French friend there and she loved it as did we again. Food gets an A+ service well it is Thailand and that can be hit and miss but the whole place is just fantasic. If in Ao Nang please on my recommendation eat here once and you will be back.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

We have been going to Aree Ba Ba for about 3 years now and the food is always impeccable. The seafood all tastes amazing and food is reasonably priced. Seating is not incredibly comfortable but definitely bearable and the bamboo seating adds to the atmosphere. Definitely recommend it to people looking for nice seafood (or Thai food) at a reasonable price. 4 stars!

“Reasonable n Authentic Thai Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

We were there 2 years ago n fell in love with their thai food after trying out a few restaurants near Vogue Resort where we stayed
We had our dinner there every night we were there due to large variety but this year seemed that it's not as much as we were there 2 years ago
Business not as packed as we were there during weekdays
We did tried out other restaurants but still find their food tasted better though it cost us abit more than those around the area but then the food there were not as nice and to our preference

We love their sticky mango rice, boiled banana/pumpkin dessert too

Their seafood were fresh n cooked according to our preference
Love the atmosphere n price is reasonable but then don't expect it to be cheap being a restaurant in a tourist area but then still cheaper than in Singapore
Their green curry, pineapple fried rice is a MUST try each time we had our meals!
Oh yes, not forgetting their BBQ baracuda !
It's our all time favorite
Btw the restaurant name is Aree Ba Ba not Aree Bar Bar
