We came here at first for the BBQ rib night. We had walked by the restaurant earlier in the day, it is located on the road at the beginning of the beach by the river, about 100 feet from the beach. It doesn't look like too much from the outside but once we walked in at night we were transported to a magical oasis with all sorts of platforms and nooks and crannies to hide in by the fish pond. Everything has a wonderful design, made out of wood in a way that both seems like it was put together with random found materials and with an extreme amount of care. We had the BBQ ribs with potatoes which was amazing, and the cocktails were pretty legit too.

We came back the next morning for breakfast and sat above the bar at the lounge patio set up there. We had a legit latte with yummy potato hash and an great lime smoothie shake thingy. Basically, we loved this place and tried to eat there as much as we could. I thought it was the best restaurant in the village, great atmosphere, food, and it was consistently opened when advertised!

I was one of the many Thong Nai Pan addicts that was saddened by the news that Kim and Giet no longer ran Dolphin Bungalows and bar at the far end of the beach. I had heard that they had set up in another location, and was delighted to discover that they were right behind our bungalows at Dreamland. The food was as wonderful and tasty as ever. The ambience was great, especially at night. The BBQ was delicious. Our kids loved it. Kim and Giet are great. Find them people! You won't be disappointed.

This incredibly relaxed place is located behind Dreamland resort, between the beach and the main road. The wooden building and the outdoor seating areas are situated in a lovely garden with banana trees and a lily pond. Everything is designed by the symphatetic owners themselves and beautifully decorated. The food is tasty and creative, with lots of homemade products - like the feta cheese and garlic mayonnaise. I just love this place!

Kim and Giat have created something even better with their new Dolphin bar in the village.
The BBQ pork is the best on Koh Phangan and service is friendly and homely.
Can't recommend it enough!!

Following a four year gap from our last visit to Koh Phanghan we were initially very disappointed to find the original Dolphin Bar on Thong Nai PanYai beach had been taken over by new owners and Kim and Giet after all their years of hard work disgracefully treated and forced to move out . This bar was a shadow of its former self - indifferent service , dirty, filthy toilets, unkempt and no atmosphere - not recommended !!!! However the good news was that Kim and Giet have shown great resilience and opened up a new bar/ restaurant at the opposite end of the beach just behind Dreamland next to the school. Wonderful to see that once again their creative talents have produced a fantastically welcoming place with great ambience. A great chilled out place either to have a drink - recommend the cocktails !! Or eat - throughly recommend Giet's BBQ night. On our return to Koh Phanghan next year this will be the first bar we visit.
