This restaurant was the best one that we found in Ao Nang.
It was coviniently located next to our Krabi Thai Village Resort, where we stayed. We had 2 weeks to taste many different restaurants, finer and more modest ones. This one became the absolutely favourite because of it´s immaculate food, beautifully artful presentation (with orchid-flowers), relaxing and pretty interior, atmosphere, warm and helpfull staff and good prices. With that same amount of money we couldn´t find anything as good as the service and food was in Cafe Del Mar! The cooks are professional, food is always fresh, yammy and all the ingredients are best there is. To sustain this level in serving is a really important value to the owners and staff.
Really exellent value for the price!

Despite the name, Cafe del Mar is not only a cafe, it´s a classy restaurant also, which is a little further from the main shopping street. Location is on a smaller road, but they sure make up for the trip there. The staff is unbeliveble kind, genuinly eager to help and serve, they never push anything to you, but are happy to help you in what ever you need. They also book trips, they have a professional spa in that building and so much more.

I have to say, we felt like VIP every time we went there with my mother. We were always welcomed warmly and treated like good friends. The owners also had time to dinner with us and we never felt like just some tourists with money to them. We had many good laughs together and were neve disappointed with the food or drinks. These people and their food really gave extra nice memories and experiences to our 2 week stay at Ao Nang :)

Thank you so much, all of you! We miss you!

With love, Johanna

Well cared tables; flawless service; great tasting Thai cuisine; very good value for money.
We went to Cafe del Mar every night for dinner and discover a wide range of thai courses we've never tasted before. Many thanks to We and all her staff for their great job. We are very strict when it comes to choosing a restaurant and Cafe del Mar met all our expectations.
If you really want to eat well in Krabi do not hesitate to come here. Especially their curries; thai salads, fried dishes noodles (Pad Thai courses). Average price per person (excluded wine) is 200 THB. Really very good price.

Few doors up from Carnivore, this little restaurant has friendly staff and a varied menu. Prices are a little on the high side but food quality is very good and they will cater to your needs as requested. We visited for lunch and as my wife is vegetarian they were very happy to adapt the menu accordingly. I decided to order a Penang curry but opted to have it Thai style, ie spicy, and without rice but with Tori, and the staff were happy to oblige. The only negative to our bust and the reason for four stars rather than five was that our first choice drinks were unavailable (strawberry smoothie) as was my wife first choice meal (gnocchi). But what we did order was very very well cooked and served with a traditional Thai style of friendliness.

Before i found this i had been making the 10 min walk from my hotel - the Krabi Thai Village into town for a bit of Thai food - but this is a little gem - great food and service - We had the prawn toast, Soicy Mango Salad, Massoman and Red Curries and all were superb - defo worth a try if your near this. - a little more expensive than those in town but worth it - meal with starter and drinks was around £20
