“Nice location, horrible food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Just the worse dining experience in Thailand so far.

2 Mohitos, 25 mins to get them and the taste... just make yourself a favour... don't order them.

Spaghetti carbonara floating in a sort of milk soup (yes, soup) with a sour taste of milk... , just wrong.

Fillet mignon...served in strips , like 4 small steaks very thin and over cooked, clearly no ida on what a fillet mignon is.
Quality of meat is average.
Side vegetables spongy and no taste.

Pretty disappointed since the place has so many great reviews and been recommended by some friends.

I'll try again in few weeks but for the moment I can't recommend this place at all.

Service is very poor and prices are average for the area.

Sorry to hear about your disappointment. Not sure when you came, but if it was in the last few days, as it was so busy, even i know it is not an excuse, i do know that things were far to be perfect... Hope you will give us another chance in the future. Sawadee pee mai (happy new year) anyway!

“Overwhelming menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Went on recommendation from local Thai driver. Lovely atmosphere, seems popular with western expat regulars. Pool and Foosball tables to keep the teenagers entertained. Wish I had of counted, but I think there may have been more than 250 items on the menu, covering all cuisines. French owner so there's a reasonable selection of French food. After a week of Thai food I was craving something different, so had the plate of prosciutto & salamis. Hit the spot! Friends had Thai and enjoyed.

“Lovely Thai and International food - something for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

We have eaten at the Black Cat many times over the last 3 years and always return several times on each visit to Phuket. We've always had the Thai food because it is so delicious but the pizzas and French food that comes out also looks lovely. Green curry is gorgeous, fried rice with chicken is highly recommended, lovely prawn cakes and for desert try the mango with sticky rice. We'll no doubt be back again. Very reasonably priced too.

“Best food in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Been here plenty of times due to the handy and free shuttle service which runs from this place. Lovely food, good atmosphere, prices could be slightly cheaper but this is reflected in the superb quality of the dishes.

European and Thai food with a French style of cooking due to the owner being French. Always try the local dishes. Especially if your European! I never see the point in travelling to a far away place to eat pizza.

As a backpacker primarily, this place costs slightly higher from Thai restaurants I normally eat at but would gladly recommend to anyone travelling in the area to try it out.
