Mama Resto and The Cliff Bar in Phi Phi

Tonsai West Restaurants & Dining

Mama Resto and The Cliff Bar are certainly worth a visit if you stay in Phi Phi for a few days. It’s a 750-metre stroll from Tonsai Pier to Mama Beach Residence at the western end of Tonsai Bay, but it’s most definitely worth it as here is where you’ll find Mama Resto (restaurant in French slang) and The Cliff Bar. In an idyllic beach setting and sheltered by the towering and prolific limestone cliffs that mark the edge of the bay, sunset dining here is nothing short of magnificent.

But just about any time of day is memorable here and what with the setting, an attractive design, good cocktails and super-friendly service, everything adds up to a place that pretty much sums up tropical beach dining and drinking.

The restaurant in the actual hotel is a compact affair with clean lines, 10 tables and swirling chill-out music but our favourite spot is up at the bar. In fact, there are dining tables on a terrace in front of the beach and if it got any closer to the tide it would float away. The atmosphere here is best described in three words: Chill, chill, and chill.

The combination of sunset, ambient music and a cool cocktail at a beach bar is a heady one and The Cliff enjoys making the most of it. The three-language menu covers international, Thai and French cuisine while the friendly barman mixes up professional cocktails in the cone-shaped bamboo-and-thatch bar. The quality of the dishes served at Mama Resto is very close to gastronomic cuisine. Rates are in line with the average prices found in Phi Phi, you can eat a fish & ships for 240 baht, a fried rice with shrimps for 90 baht, a cheese plate for 250 baht, a pad Thai for 100 baht, and fried squid Spanish style for 130 baht, just to name a few.

In short, Mama Resto and The Cliff Bar still have what many other bars and restaurants on Phi Phi have lost: a true sense of peace and tranquillity and it’s all done in style.
