Discover the best restaurants in Phi Phi Island (Koh Phi Phi) with our guide below. Seafood is the star attraction on Phi Phi with many places displaying the day's catch as an effective way to attract customers. But Thai and western options, from quick grab-and-go snacks to candlelit meals, are also easy to find – especially in Tonsai Village, the center of Phi Phi’s dining scene.

    Whether indoors, outdoors, or places that blur the line between both, there are plenty of restaurants with sumptuous selections. A trek toward Long Beach, down the footpath that more or less follows the sea, will turn up a dozen more eating options. There’s a great mix of offerings in Phi Phi’s buzzing Tonsai Village; from long-established restaurants to newcomers, you'll surely find a venue for your taste and budget in the list below.

    Aroy Kaffeine is a hidden gem in Tonsai Village that's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The bohemian-style restaurant that has vintage and old western-style wooden furnishing – like a tiny Texas sedan in the middle of a tropical Thai Village.

    Aroy Kaffeine serves a good choice of Thai and international dishes as well as an impressive beverages list of imported beers, smoothies, and cocktails.

    Ciao Bella faces eastward on Loh Dalum Beach, and out over the idyllic and picturesque bay, making it an excellent location for a sunrise breakfast in Phi Phi.

    Hippies Bar & Restaurant

    Hippies Bar & Restaurant near Phi Phi Villa Resort is the archetypical Phi Phi bar with triangular cushions to relax on, a party atmosphere, fire dancing and overall late-night reveling. Hippies Bar doesn’t get going until about 9pm, but you can get a meal here pretty much any time of day. 

    Watch out for the bar's half-moon parties as they can get pretty wild and woolly with international DJs, dancing on the sand, and lots of noise. When you're feeling peckish, you can count on their menu, which presents seafood broils that go well with a nice cold Chang.

    Rimlay

    Rimlay is a big, 120-cover restaurant on the beach in Phi Phi's Tonsai East, part of the Rimlay Resort. You can expect some interesting deals here from time to time, such as a broiled half-chicken with veggies and priced-per-kg seafood. But don’t expect intimacy, chamber music or haute cuisine. In all, it's all basic stuff at friendly prices.

    Bakery Hut by Pajay

    Bakery Hut by Pajay is just around the corner to the food market in Phi Phi. Even though it's a bakery, it's quite a happening spot, selling fresh coffee, tea, breakfast, pastries, bread, and juices. 

    Pajay is L-shaped with a central bar. It’s not a large place and fills up quite quickly, lending it a rather busy atmosphere. Besides freshly baked bread, you can also grab a hearty ham or club sandwich which they prepare daily. 

    Location: Between the market and Moskito Diving, Phi Phi Island, Ao Nang, Krabi, Thailand

    Breakers Bar & Broil is one of the oldest eateries on Phi Phi Island. This bar/pub/restaurant is located right downtown, attracting a constant stream of locals and travelers throughout the day. It has 5 rows of heavy wooden tables and benches, allowing for communal dining.

    Over the bar, large-screen TVs show sports and news at a discreet volume. Breakers Bar does have a slightly indifferent feel to it – not unlike a school refectory.

    Papaya Restaurant

    Papaya Restaurant is an unpretentious local venue on the eastern side of Tonsai Village, not far from the famous Reggae Pub. Don't expect fancy settings or outstanding décor here – the restaurant’s main focus is on tasty, genuine Thai food. That means lots of chilies, so get ready to have your mouth set on fire as spiciness standards are Thai, not western.

    From phad Thai and tom yam to green/yellow/red curry and som tam (papaya salad), the food served at Papaya Restaurant is the real McCoy. Served in large portions and at affordable prices, Papaya is the right place to experiment with Thai cuisine.

    Pirate’s House

    Despite the somewhat playful name, Pirate’s House delivers Indian, continental and Thai food with a certain amount of style. This is the place to grab a juicy steak or good chicken fried rice. With chunky wooden tables and chairs, Pirate’s House is also pretty atmospheric.

    Pizza Take Away

    Tonsai Village has several Pizza Take Away stands. Located at the pier and in the village itself, these outlets are a mishmash of east meets west. They use the Asian concept of a street stand, but sell preprepared fast food – specifically pizza, as the name suggests. The food is very cheap, but obviously don't go expecting a breathtaking dining experience.

    Pum Thai Restaurant & Cooking School

    The Rock

    A Phi Phi institution, The Rock is a breezy upstairs restaurant overlooking Loh Dalum and further. It’s a chilled-out place with equally chilled music, where no one has so much as even heard of the word ‘urgency’, so expect a calm atmosphere. While the menu does include western favorites, its Thai dishes generally taste better and are very budget-friendly.
