Phala Pier Cafe and Restaurant
Tucked away in the corner of Phala by Phala Pier, the restaurant offers great food and friendly service, all right on the ocean front. The casual atmosphere makes the place perfect for whiling away sunny afternoons with a cold beer, or an evening meal with the family. The open fronted bar looks out onto its own private stretch of beach, making ideal for families with children, or those wanting to enjoy a beautiful sunset looking out to Phala Beach. Looking out to sea at night from the bar provides stunning views of the Map Ta Phut oil refinery, which ironically, is an absolute eyesore during the day.
On Friday evenings the owner puts on a fire show on the beach, as far as i am aware, this is the only place in Ban Chang that puts on a regular fire show. Friday nights can get busy, so arrive early if you want to guarantee yourself a table.
The Menu at Phala Pier Cafe
Phala Pier's menu has recently had a revamp, in addition to the usual Thai favourites, the menu now includes a much changed western food offering. The range of burgers has been expanded to include a bacon cheese burger and a cheese and mushroom melt burger. Poutine is also now on the menu if you're in the mood for a hearty bar snack!
