“Colonial times are over...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2013

We visited Dibuk in Phuket town based on recommendations, however, had to find out that this place is more a relict from old times: 19th century living room atmosphere was interesting - the food was not. These days going to a french restaurant one expects some sophistication in food preparations but in this case the food was just plain (in presentation as well as in taste). Crab rolls had been kind of dry, the liver mousse was close to just a standard liver sausage any good butcher can prepare. Button sized scallops supposed to come in a garlic & butter sauce had more a "fish" taste... But to give it credit: most guests during that evening seemed to be regulars of similar age and appreciated the set-up. So it seems to be a generation issue whether you like it or be utterly disappointed. The wine, a sauvignon blanc from Chile, was fairly priced, but nothing special.

“Lovely atmosphere, good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

You probably won't find this restaurant if you're not looking for it. It's not a just walk by place. But after reading reviews on tripadvisor we decided to try and find it, and it was word while! Good French menu, but also lots of Thai dishes to choose from. They even served crocodile, which was a nice dish. The staff is maybe a little slow in response, but the food is good. The sauce, served separately, for my meat was superb.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2012

What a great find. Located in the old part of Phuket with loads of character. Delicious food and lots of choice. We had Thai dishes but you could have French if you wanted. Highly recommend.
