The peri peri baguette and fries was absolutely unreal. We popped into to share a quick bite to eat and ended up ordering same plate of food again as it was soooooo tasty. The health juices are great and the Berry Berry smoothie hits the spot. Give this place a look, you would be mad not to xx

On your arrival at the pier or, to end your day from a great dive. The safety stop has always a welcoming, friendly, calm environment. You must try thier biltong with your drink (like a beef jerky) but thier selection of food is good quality at a modest price to. :-) Enjoy!!

The Safety Stop Bar and Restaurant offers excellent service with the owner and staff greeting with a Smile! It's also a fantastic place to meet and greet friends and others when you are not sure of a location point. Located near the main pier on Mae Haad, you can sit and wait before your boat departure time or in general... More

We came here twice and enjoyed it both times. The first time we got pesto pasta and a piri piri burger. Both were nice but were nothing special which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Pasta was 180 baht and burger with chips was about the same. The chips are delicious though, extra crispy. The second time we... More

We chose to eat here as we got dropped off with our luggage at the pier and it was literally the closest restaurant. The food was great and the prices were reasonable. It took a while for our food but it wasn't a problem as we were waiting for our ferry anyways. Would recommend to anyone who wants to kill... More

Good food at good prices, friendly service :) Located right by the pier, so instead of waiting for your boat on a hard bench by the pier, hang out here for a beer or a meal or both

Safety Stop Pub is always a good atmosphere. My first time here was in December of 2013.... and I just kind of stayed haha. Big menu full of plenty of great options. The Thai food is especially top notch. Service is good and with the open feel to the place it's just a great spot. I'll keep going here and... More
