After the trip to secret garden, we stop for the sunset in DR.frog we had some cocktails, the end we diced to have dinner with the best sea view. I order Carpaccio di Tuna as starter was tasty, and risotto porcini was perfectly cooked. Great place for couples not be alone.

Hi Kleinalbert,

Thanks so much for your review, we really appreciate it. So glad you enjoyed the risotto porcine, Our chef was raised to, "Rice was born in water but dies in wine", haha. Our chef takes special care in preparing his risotto based on an old family recipe- the main ingredients: Patience and heart. Thanks again and we look forward to serving you in the future.

Safest travels,

Josh

Dr Frog’s is a lovely restaurant serving Thai and Italian food and offering a beautiful view of the sea and to one side the island. The food is *very* tasty, although also priced according to the Western standards: more expensive than expected. The staff are kind and attentive. The owner, also friendly, came to ask us if the meal was alright and did this for every table— the restaurant was almost full by the time we left. And although it was only a Monday night, there was live music starting 7pm.
Definitely recommended for a romantic evening and/or family dinner!

Thank Kyra S

good Italian food and coffee, If you want a break and want western food in a good atmosphere then come here. Doing steaks at 1200 THB and pasta, there are definitely cheaper places to eat that will give you just as good tasting food. Think of this place as a Angus steak house. Great if you just want stuff you know. But expect to pay for it. Service was good and view was nice
