Coconut Grill and Bar – Phi Phi Island Village Resort & Spa

October 8, 2012

Earlier in the year, Stud and I were in Thailand on our honeymoon, and while staying at Phi Phi Island Village Resort & Spa, we did the rounds on the island (more posts to come) food wise.

Our first night in Phi Phi was spent at Coconut Grill and Bar, one of the hotels many restaurant options.

A gorgeous setting, either out the front with your feet in the sand, in the restaurant, or out the back on the balcony, overlooking the lake.

We went with the balcony seating Рromaaaantic ;)

The menu isn’t extensive so it was easy to choose our seafood basket to share, with a few dips to accompany.

Our complimentary bread basket arrives and to my surprise, is a few different types of bread. Gotta love that. Needless to say, my normal “don’t fill up on carbs” mantra once again, goes out the window as I begin to devour the basket.

We’re brought out a salad and baked potato to accompany our main, although the main takes a while longer so I ended up finishing most of it before the seafood arrived.

 

 

The fish, served on the bone, was so juicy and delicious! Although I do have a slight problem with eating things off the bone, for fear of choking on teeny tiny bones, or just not getting enough flesh on my fork to be satisfies. None the less, delicious!

The lobster was perfectly cooked and came out of the shell with ease.

The squid was slightly over for my liking although the char flavour was fab.

The sauces we chose to accompany were mango salsa, tomato garlic salsa and the garlic chili dip.

I didn’t attempt the chili dip as I know that Thailand means business whenever the word chili is mentioned. Stud was a massive fan.

A gorgeous night out on the balcony, and a perfect way to start our Phi Phi holiday. Although a little pricey when you consider what we got, and where we were. That’s what you get when you eat at the hotel though.
