“Excellent value for money - AND good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

We walked by this restaurant and saw that they had both French and Thai menus - the a la carte menu seemed reasonable, but the set menu for Thai (199baht) and French (599baht) seemed great value so we decided to dine there. Service was very good, and friendly - we chose the 3 course set menu which came with a glass of house wine - each course was huge - we chose the tempura vegatable and shrimps for starters, very nice. Main course, hubbie had Chicken brochettes, and I had the Filet Mignon (3 pieces of tender Filet) with a choice of sauce on the side, choice of pototoes (these were lyonnaise and very nice) and side salad with tasty dressing, but we were too full to eat the salad or sample the bread rolls which looked freshly baked. The glass of Rose wine was pleasant and we asked for a 10 minute rest before ordering dessert - again huge portions, the mixed red berry tart was nice and the flambeed bananas with syrup, cream and chocalate sauce was a sinful calorific delight - this restaurant appears to offer one of the best value menu's in town

“Good service, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Menu is a mix of Thai and european cuisine. Ate here with a party of 8 and were well taken care of. Good, attentive service and very generous servings, however food itself was average.

“Reliably innovative, delicious and cheap!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2011

We've been in Bophut for 2 weeks now and been to a number of fine restaurants (see my review of The Shack). If you are looking for a place with great food that is extremely reaonably priced...Daudet is the one. few places that hit these parameters in stride.

We've dined here 3 times...had great Thai lunches @ 80 baht per person...try their hot ginger chicken salad (awesome) or any of the other great stuff. I had a very large ham mushroom and cheese pizza for 180 that was suitable for 2 ...If you don't eat like an Americam.LOL...(OK I am one, but stilli ti was enough for two)...thin crispy crust...nice.

Another meal I had a very nice grilled duck and last night we had a 3 course fixed price for 199. Great temura vegetaables, curry andnice ice cream for dessert...water included for each...This was a great "anchor restaurant" for us...extremely nice staff to boot!

A couple of other restaurants if you want budget alternatives are The Hut, oppoxite the Waterfront Hotel (at the east end of town...super food) For breakfast we dined at the Karma Sutra for a 190 baht splurge or Cocooning for a 119 slightly lower grade equivilant...

This town is loaded with great dining options...enjoy! (Off to Chiang Mai)

“Best ever in Fisherman village perfomance for small money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2011

The prices are outrageous, and the quality is excellent. Tom Kha is abnormal tasty, sour seafood is also delitious. Desserts are also so good. One of the best places with minimal prices not only in FV but on the whole island.

“Excellent food. Great service. Great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

As there are new owners of Villa Daudet I am sure that the negative comment made from an out of date visit is not representative of our experience of the restaurant. We were made welcome and found the standard of food to be excellent. The Pizza's and pasta we had were great. Thai food great and French food wonderful. You will not be disappointed.
