Description: The restaurant is located 15 minutes from Ao Nang center in a small village named Din Daeng Noi. It is one of the most unique restaurant/ bar and bungalow operations in the South of Thailand. The chef is superb and the tropical ambience is amazing. It is a hidden gem.

Difficult to rate this place; it is somewhere between average and very good. The ambiance is nice but the host seems a bit selective with his clients spending more time with certain clients at the bar with a bier and cigarette and not going around the beautiful garden to meet other tables a "professional". The food was OK but nothing exiting. The garden is very nice and it is a place for a romantic evening in a seclude place.

Undeserving of its #1 ranking in Krabi.Starters ok but a lot of bugs made their way into the meals and we were left disappointed and hungry,
The fish was served without being gutted and cleaned-could not have been more revolted!

We came here for a couple of days' rest before leaving Thailand and it really did the job. Gary, the owner, is a great host with a twinkle in his eye, and it's great to watch him and his team have fun while they manage the restaurant and guest house. We didn't leave the place the entire time as we were too busy eating in the restaurant, lounging by the pool, exploring the gardens or watching DVDs in our room. A great find that offers something a little different from other resorts and hotels. Oh, and the portion sizes in the restaurant are 'you look like you need feeding up' English portions as opposed to standard Thai 'this is one of five small meals I'll be eating today'.

Tempted by excellent reviews and some YouTube footage, a large group of us travelled out from AoNang to the Frog and Catfish. What a great escape from the beaches and hustle of the resort!

We arrived 4pm ish so the four young children could use the pool whilst we adults had a beer or two...or three. The dining tables and areas are beautifully arranged around flowing water - streams, waterfalls and ponds - on a sloping site that leads to the letting rooms (didn't stay but they looked great). The whole place is superbly designed and has a wonderfully tranquil air about it.

I had phoned ahead and Gary, the owner, arranged a return minibus (1000bht) and put its cost on the bill. The food was excellent and served with good humour by the Thai waitress. Gary was a great host and made everybody feel welcome. The character of the place changes as night falls - very clever and intimate lighting makes the whole place feel magical. Superb ambience.

If you're staying around AoNang and fancy something a bit different and special you can't do better than a trip out to the Frog and Catfish.
