Good but not excellent, but for the price it's very good. The meals are very big so worth it. We had Thai food. The staff made it worth the visit as great with families. They entertained my children in there seats from the minute we arrived.

The restaurant offers good food, the host is well spoken and the location is great. The pricing we did not find transparent and where charged 280 THB for a sticky rice and mango desert as this was not on the menu and found this very opportunistic.

We were well looked after at the Butterfly Bistro. We loved our vegetarian meals so much and will be back over the seven days we are staying at the Old Phuket Hotel.
