Where to Eat in Ko Pha Ngan: The Best Restaurants and Bars

December 18, 2017 Brandee Mangan

We're guessing they don't have a werewolf problem in Koh Phangan, because every month on the full moon, thousands of people take part in the Full Moon Party's all-night festivities, including music on the beach. By day, you'll find a lovely island with coconut trees and plenty of sandy white beaches. If you're a diver, visit Sailrock for a spectacular wall dive.

A cosy bungalow restaurant in the north of the island, close to Ao Chaloklum. I ate a octopus salad and homemade fettuccine with gamberi and pomodorini, tiramisu.Everything fantastic!!! Alessandro, the owner from Rimini(Italy) does really a good job, trying to preserve on the dish, the typical taste of italian food."Un'italianitá" so far away from the mother country, who can only fascinating and make your evening unforgettable.

If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place to satisfy it!

House People

House People is a unique concept on the island. Quality home made food using fresh products chosen daily from reliable suppliers and cooked by a Bangkok chief. Great variety of music mixed by a passionate musician. The natural atmosphere of our establishment is far from the city crowd and our friendly and helpful staff will always be happy to answer any question and give advise about our lovely little island. Our goal is to have you spending quality time while enjoying more than simply food.

Ordered burgers - very good, although meat was a little chewier than I like (my husband had no complaints).
Late happy hour with buy 1 get 1 free drinks.
Great ambiance, very friendly and attentive staff.
We got in early without a reservation but this place fills up for dinner and there was a wait for people without Reservations as the night drew on.
There are a fair amount of kids/families here earlier in the evening.

bite delight is a restaurant with the goal of food to share! We work hard to recover the real meaning of spend time together. We selected the best ingredients and a carefull presentation, to elevate Portuguese tapas concept to another level. With a kitch feel like home decoration, this is a must dinner experience in Koh Phangan. Enjoy we are located next 7/11 Baantai.

We visited that place twice. I ate a pad thai-it was ok but nothing special. I can even say that was too much rice noddles cause all indigrents spreaded between noddles. Second time I took Green curry, was tasty like in other places, but red one was more delicious. Prices are approchable.

Bubba's Coffee Bar

Reviewed By Se H

Western Breakfast with real good cheese, curd etc. Well prepared, fresh&tasty. The coffee is very good& strong- the best in the island or maybe in the whole country.
After a few month of traveling in Asia, this coffee was extremely appreciative- it also knocked me out= coffeeshock, that I sadly realized that this was my last cup of coffee.
The service is friendly, fast & attentive.
The Location is a place to relax and enjoy your food with smooth, good music in the background. Nice place, nice atmosphere. I will come again.
