Eating, Drinking, Climbing, Boat Trips, Koh Phi Phi has it all
Eating, Drinking, Climbing, Boat Trips, Koh Phi Phi offers not only great diving but it also has a fantastic range of post dive activities.
Surprisingly Phi Phi offers cheaper higher quality food and drink than restaurants and bars in Phuket and other locations.
The Grand Bleu (French and Thai food) – Located close to the main pier with a beautiful wooden interior and waterfall this restaurant offers great French and Thai food at surprisingly low prices. Definitely your first choice if its a special occasion (my second favorite restaurant on the island). Highly Recommended
Unnis (Swedish, Mexican and Thai food) – offering a mixture of private tables and trestle tables for bigger groups. Cheap cocktails, good wine and warm friendly staff make this my favorite restaurant on the island. Highly Recommended
Tonsai Seafood (Fresh seafood and Thai food) – Situated on the Tonsai sea front this restaurant offers good quality seafood with decent service.
Cosmic (Italian) – Great Pasta and thin crust pizza at very low prices. Cosmic has two restaurants in the village both of of which serve the same quality food.
Papaya (Thai Food) – Serving favorite Thai dishes adjusted for the western palate, expect big portions and check the fridge for the Persian cat which hangs out there when it gets too hot.
Only Pad Thai (Pad Thai noodles) – This small noodle outlet behind the Irish bar specializes in Pad Thai and is well worth a visit.
Panoi (Thai Food) – This small but very popular Thai Restaurant is an island favorite with the local dive community, serving good quality Thai food and a low price it comes Highly Recommended
Irish Bar-Big screens showing various sporting events, pool table and plenty of seating. If you are looking for a specific sports program ask the staff.
Dojo Bar – Open from 12pm till 1am, Dojo offers chilled out tunes during the afternoon as well as beer pong before bringing up the pace at night. A favorite for many from 9pm till 12am before the party moves on towards the beach.
Breakers – Trestle tables and benches offer a college bar environment with waitress service and the widest range or beers and cider on tap. A range of bar food as well makes this a comfortable afternoon and evening drinking spot.
Banana Bar – Roof top bar with great music, late night drinks just 50 meters from the party beach. A good place for a drink either before hitting the beach or for a cold bear after lunch.
The Beach – Lined with late night bars offering fire shows and late night dance parties. Be warned thieves target the late night party goers so leave your bags at home and keep an eye on your phone.
The stunning limestone cliffs offer some great climbing with stunning views.
