After 28 nights of (wonderful) Thai food, you eventually need entrecôte et frites and a nice bottle of red wine. cafe darling is the place to go in bophut. lovely staff, gorgeous surroundings, a table on a terrace above the beach, and scrumptious food. parfait!

A small, stylish, intimate restaurant. A relaxing change from the bigger, noisier restaurants in Fisherman's Village. We appreciated the background music which did not interfere with conversation. My husband and I enjoyed beautiful food from both the Thai and French menu's. A very personal welcome...More

Nice setting, but the food is very disappointing and overpriced. Seafood Paneng with 3 shrimps. Beef Salad, with 3 little slices of beef. Pomolo Salad that looked awful and was tasteless. We complained and ended up with a discussion with the owner. Very unprofessional.

We couldn’t help ourselves but got drawn into this beautifully decorated French interior of this cosy restaurant. The minute we walked in, we felt ourselves transported into some countryside in France. The lovely French lady led us to the garden balcony overlooking the sea. Even...More
