Fantastic food, great atmosphere, beautiful gardens and private pavilions! We spent approx. 2hrs here and we could have easily stayed for another 2! Oh, and the food, so delicious and so much of it!
We travelled to Krabi looking for wedding dinner restaurants and tried the Frog and Catfish based on reviews we had read. We weren't disappointed. They arranged transfers for us in a lovely 4wd and greeted us at the front door. We were shown to our private dining pavilion, right next to a little fountain and a view of the bar to the right, pool straight ahead and more gardens to the left.
We ordered the rice paper crab spring rolls,Tub Tim fish and curry prawns with some crab meat fried rice - so much food! The flavours were all so rich and fresh tasting. You can taste the freshness in the herbs and spices used in the dishes. The food was well priced for the quality and quantity.
One of the owners, Gary, came out and introduced himself and made sure everything was tasting good and we were enjoying ourselves - really nice guy and made us feel very welcome.
If you go to Krabi, please take the time to eat a meal here! For us, it was such a great, romantic, laid back, relaxing experience that exceeded all of our expectations.

full english breakfast was excellent, fresh pot of twinings tea and freshly brewed coffee,
followed by fresh fruit, second morning we ordered scrambled and fried eggs with toast both meals set us up for the day.
lunch time we ordered fish with salad which was a nice light meal,
first evening meal we had the crab cakes and spring rolls followed by a green thai curry for myself and a red thai curry for the hubbie, the main meal was served with rice and side salad.
we moved onto ao nang but returned valentines night, on entering we were met by gary as are all the guests we noticed, the place looked lovely red roses and balloons decorated the bar area,"full house tonight" gary said but as promised the best table in the house was reserved for us all seating area as a great view, this time gary recommended a fish dish which we enjoyed along with rice and salad,
the ambiance is lovely the staff are amazing love every minute spent at the frog and catfish cant wait to return

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!
