Starfish and Coffee in Bophut

Starfish and Coffee in Bophut 'Fisherman's Village'

Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village boasts many great places to eat and relax, but for a traditional taste of Thai food in comfortable surroundings, Starfish and Coffee is one of the longest established restaurants in the village. The interior is exotic almost Arabic in style with comfortable furnishings and an earthy red décor.

The restaurant was named after the Prince song from the mid 1980’s

And a side order of ham

The food at Starfish and Coffee is reasonably priced for a relaxed brasserie and compares favourably with other restaurants in the village. For an exciting and authentic Thai dining experience, try the soft-shelled crab, which is a local favourite, and follow with a main of massaman curry another Thai favourite. The local seafood is excellent, and the whole chilli snapper is a particularly popular dish. Choose your fish from the ice chiller at the entrance to the restaurant and the chef will cook it for you there and then, so you can be confident that your meal will be as fresh as it gets. The staff are friendly and attentive, and will take the time to describe the various dishes to diners new to Thai cuisine

Starfish and Coffee’s pristine beachside location makes this a great venue for couples and groups of friends who wish to begin their night somewhere friendly and casual. The tables overlooking the beach are particularly popular with diners and the balcony seating provides fabulous views of the bay.

 For tourists, this restaurant is a perfect choice as the staff are competent English speakers and visitors are always welcome. If you’re new to Thai food and want to be broken in gently, this could be a good option as spice is toned down here to cater for an international audience.

Starfish and Coffee provides a perfect romantic setting. After dining on lobster, delicately spiced seafood and a few glasses of wines, take a leisurely stroll along the walking street before heading back to your villa
