We had an enjoyable evening here in a very Gallic atmosphere - the Tour de France was even on the TV with French commentary (I'm a fan, so I loved this)! We had a tomato salad and an egg mayonnaise salad for starters, and then the special beef casserole. I forget the French name, but it was cubes of beef... More

Owner very friendly born in Marseille south province from France, the Papillon restaurant is very popular in Kamala, and surely the best French cuisine restaurant at Kamala and one of the best in Phuket. Fresh tuna steak, steak tartare, coq au vin, bavette a l'echalotte, salade lyonnaise ... Do not miss it if you like French cuisine.

This is a French Restaurant and Bar located in a street close to Phuket Fantasea (Soi Fantasea). The food is amazing, every day a new "plat du jour". We tried the Gigot d'Agneau (Roast lef of lamb) which was so good.
