“Do not miss this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

My husband and I stayed in Ao Nang for 2 weeks and tried to sample as many of the top rated Tripadvisor restaurants as possible...but once we tried Jenna's, we kept returning and ordering other items on their menu. Every item was amazing...the mushroom soup, the pastas, the Sunday beef dinner, the salads, the fish & chips, and the baguettes, to name a few. The other top rated TA restaurants didn't even remotely compare to the delicious taste, the high standard, the warm service and friendliness of Jenna's.... We don't normally bother to offer our opinions on Tripadvisor, but this time we felt compelled to draw attention to a new restaurant in a tourist town that deserves recognition and support. If you want a great dining experience that feels relaxed and welcoming (yes, wear your shorts and flip flops) and offers up amazing food & drinks and fabulous service every time, eat here.

“a bit of a surprise, and a meal to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

we had been to Ao Nang for five days, and got a recommendation for Jenna's,
we did not quite now what to expect. However it was a beautiful experience!
The food was absolutely lovely, as the wine. Service impeccable and a really nice touch that the
chef came out with the food and had a chat.

“Wonderful authentic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Staying close by and this restaurant is very relaxed. Has a guitarist singing slow melodic songs while you eat. Very clean and fast service (for Thailand's standards).
Me and my partner ordered the traditional Sunday roast with pork shoulder and apple sauce. Proper roast potatoes, perfectly cooked veg and even a home made Yorkshire pudding. Extremely well presented too. We both had Apple crumble with ice-cream after. Reminds me of home. Not been open long but I can see this topping the 'best place to eat' in Ao Nang. More expensive than local Thai cuisine but not expensive considering what you pay in the UK for this level of cooking. We will be back for more during our stay for sure.

“Great New Year's evening dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The idea was that we had to go to this compulsory dinner in the restaurant of our resort but for some reason they gave away our reserved table to another family. We do not like buffet meals anyway, especially not with Christmas or New years Eve, so we decided to leave this so called festive evening in our resort and went over to Jenna's. We had the best dinner there in a nice setting with great staff. Our 3 children had superb meals as well. I can honestly say that we had the best dinner here in the 2 weeks we were in Krabi and Phuket. Yes, we will go back here when we visit Krabi.

“Fine dining in Krabi ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Nestled in between touristy restaurants on one of main streets of Ao Nang, Jenna's is a refreshing place to dine when you have been eating thai cuisine for two weeks.

With a singer/guitarist playing, modern decor it has a relaxing atmosphere taking you away from the hustle and bustle.

The bread we were served was freshly baked, the truffle mushroom soup was tasty; we had the lobster and provencal pasta with greek salad. They had a variety of drinks, we ordered the pear cider and blitzed fruit drink (my husband quite enjoyed it and ordered another one).

Staff are pleasant but were confused with orders they brought us red wine we didn't order and when paying the bill included a few other drinks we didn't order.

They do make an effort with special occasions, the table near us had a birthday and they brought out a cake and stopped to sing happy birthday.

The restaurant also has picnic baskets that they offer during the day that include champagne, baguettes that you can enjoy on the beach.

Overall, I would recommend Jenna's for its atmosphere and quality ingredients used.
