Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hern offers a great selection of foods and drinks for a reasonable price. We visited for twice for breakfast and lunch in our short time in Phuket, the food was just that great. The highlight was definitely the eggs benedict, though all our food and drinks were very enjoyable. On both occasions, we were fortunate to be served by Veer, a very friendly and accommodating staff member who immediately recognised us on our second visit. All the other staff seemed very friendly too, all seemed to be genuinely happy there. This is a wonderful place to eat and definitely somewhere I would visit again. If you are looking for a great meal in Patong, you can't go wrong with Hern.

This is our second visit to the friendly, casual yet timeless “The Hern”. Our first visit was during the hottest part of the day, in hopes to find a breakfast that would suit the weather that met us outside. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast and vowed we would come back before returning to Bangkok. This evening, we were served in a part of the restaurant with comfortable air conditioning which helped the humidity outside. Our meals were filling and very well prepared, with both presentation and taste in mind. However, we must say, it was Monu who made our experience so memorable. He was very welcoming and pleasant from the moment we entered and remembered us from our previous visit. No request was too much to ask and Monu catered to our every need during our meal. We leave Phuket with good food in our stomach and a beautiful restaurant to return to next time we visit.

Hern is a really beautiful and well laid out restaurant with a lovely beach vibe - airy and conservatory like with a bamboo and glass roof and lots of plants and bamboo-type furniture. I particularly enjoyed this combined with good music in the background! We ordered waffles and coffee. Coffee was excellent and waffles were super tasty! Arrived on time and we received yummy complimentary ice cream! Wanted to also note that Alwin was an attentive server who enhanced the experience. He provided us a recommendation of what to eat on request, and was really friendly, polite and enthusiastic when serving us. Thank you Alwin, and we loved the cricket chat :-) Highly recommend this place!!

When a cafe is this well located, with the wonderful architecture and design it boasts, and the pricing one would expect that comes with that, it's fair and reasonable to set expectations on the food and service. Unfortunately the expectations were not met on many levels. The menu is hardly inspired, it's like a copy paste of the standard cafe fare available island-wide. It felt like all the creative energy had been used up in designing the space, so that by the time it came to the menu, near enough was good enough. There isn't one signature dish on the menu, nothing for a passionate chef to really take pride in. For vegetarians the menu is a wasteland, unless you count potato wedges and spaghetti napoletana. I was served by the cashier Jib who was pleasant, got my order right. After that, nobody asked if the food was good, the drink was good or anything. Somewhere I else I would have forgiven a lot of this, but when I am paying a premium price in a nice environment, my expectations are higher. Finally, the place needs big clean. The glass roof, and two storey glass windows to catch the beach view are a feature, but when they are all covered in crud and dust it's another layer of disappointment. As is the dust covering the fan/extractor grilles and the layers of muck in the window frames, on the table top display, and the feet of the table legs. There is a project on the beach road to put cables underground so that may have contributed to the muck on the glass, but a simple rinse daily would have avoided the crusted build-up that is on many windows now. It is a lovely place to sit, the music is at a non-intrusive level, but I won't return unless the menu gets invigorated and the cleaners attack their job with vigor.

Visited this restaurant this evening, it wasn’t busy at all, we chose our food & the staff were fabulous, friendly & helpful. My oh ordered the grilled salmon, which he said was lovely, however I wasn’t that hungry so ordered a chicken Cesar wrap. Both meals came together which was good but my chicken was very under cooked, I called the waiter over who was more than happy to change my order. I wasn’t keen on having another chicken Cesar wrap so opted for the tuna one. When the second wrap came the chips which accompanied it were raw. By this time I’d lost my appetite. Sadly won’t be visiting this place again.

I visited Hern on my last day in Phuket. My expectation were high as this is top 3 restaurant in the area. I ordered eggs benedict at 280 Baht and matcha flappe. A few minutes later my food came first and then my drink which I find it odd, as food usually takes longer to serve. As I have my first bite, the egg was cold, bacon was cold. I told the server that my food is cold. The server insisted to fix my eggs benedict. As I look around where the food was coming. It was from the kitchen of a nearby restaurant Baan Laimai that also serve breakfast. My food arrived and to my horror, It was the same eggs benedict but MICROWAVED!!! I was expecting a freshly made Eggs Ben, not a microwaved meal that I can also get from a 7 Eleven. I felt so outrage that I have to compose myself for a few minutes and ask for the manager. 2 days ago, I was at Baan Laimai, the restaurant across Hern, I had American breakfast that included 2 poached eggs, 2 bacons, processed ham, pieces of bread, fresh fruits, juices, tea and coffee, all for an inclusive price of 180 Baht. The service was fast, unusually fast! The poached eggs and bacon were all COLD, but I didn't make a big fuzz about it as I was only paying 180 Baht for all the food I'm getting. I believe the food, particularly the eggs and bacons are being cook in large batches, then set aside and the cook/chef just assemble the dishes as the orders come. This is the only way I can think of for having fast service and cold food. Hern charges a premium for their food, as a paying customer, you expect higher standards for their services and food. at 280 Baht for eggs and bacons, you expect freshly made meal everytime, hot poached egg and crispy pan fried bacon. You let your customers pay extra when in fact your food comes from a mass production kitchen. Its the same cold egg and bacon anyway. You are misleading your customers with your fancy decorations but with sub par food and services.

Excellent restaurant from start to finish. Our server, Alvin, greeted us at the door and seated us at a lovely table downstairs. He is so friendly and hospitable. He really helps Hern Bistro shine. He’s the best! Excellent service! We ordered pumpkin soup and lobster cream soup to start and both were absolutely delicious. For our main course, we ordered green curry salmon and Penang curry chicken. There was just enough spice in both curries and they were both really tasty. I’d order again.

We just passed by this place call Hern Coffee and Bistro opposite to the famous Patong beach. It has a very relaxing breezy atmosphere offering nice varieties of seats amidst a natural decoration with large windows, where people can just unwind the whole day watching the beach as times goes by during their memorable vacation. We surely enjoyed the great selection of cocktails and mocktails with mouthwatering food varieties as it offers outstanding quality of food taste using fresh ingredients all at reasonable price for the quality and service provided at this area of Patong. Moreover, we would like to thanks Khun Veer and Khun Ake as well as other staffs for their outstanding hospitality and professionalism with perfect english and friendly personality while taking care of me and my wife during our meal, creating a memorable experience by being attentive to details. We will surely come back again !

First things first. What you see here is the spicy salmon sushi burrito, spaghetti vongole, and spicy beef salad. What you don’t see here was the strawberry ice cream which was probably the best I ever had. Nothing was short of delicious; I came here alone and polished off each dish. Hern reasonably underestimated my appetite, as they kindly recommended two dishes might be enough. More than anything, it shows how considerate and thoughtful they are towards their customers, opposed to mercenary restaurants who will not stop you from over-ordering for the sake of business. They were soon to discover my absurd ability to eat and allowed me to indulge in delightful bliss. Although the food was impressive, Hern’s service and ambience was most excellent. Thank you to Veer who seems to understand “omotenashi,” the art of going above and beyond and anticipating my needs even before I am aware of them. Be cognizant of the character of this establishment; it is classy, enjoyable, and versatile. I see myself coming regularly, whether it be drinks with friends, dinner with someone special, or just me, once again appreciating what Hern has to offer on the clustered coast of Patong.

Very Nice Location with great menu options. Food was 10/10 The service was 5 star!! specifically Alwin who was a student studying here for 6 months. He was very personable and professional. The other fellas named Mono and Veer were very nice as well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone passing through. We paid about 75 Canadian for 3 people including a few drinks so that was very reasonable

I have been here twice and both times I had some of the best food ever. 1st time I had egg Omelet with bacon. The Omelet was cooked perfectly and the crispy bacon was great. Today I had Tagliatelle with Carbonara sauce. Al dente pasta with delicious Carbonara sauce, with a Pina Colade. When visiting Patong you must have a meal here, breakfast to dinner served, you won't be disappointed. The Bistro is perfectly located across the street from Patong's stretching white beach. The greenery around you, if seated on the outside is cool and gives you the feeling that you are in a garden. Great vibe with back ground music at the perfect volume. My waiter was great, friendly and helpful. He knows the menu and his suggestions are spot on. Owner on site or very close all the time. Welcomed me and made me feel comfortable and important. I highly recommend this Cafe & Bistro. Small menu ensures that every meal is Prepared fresh and mouth watering.

A quick lunch after shopping and the food was great - mozzarella and tomato salad, prawn Caesar salad and tuna wrap - all very nice and good value for money. Alwin is very helpful and made our lunch very enjoyable. Ask for the air conditioned dining area!

We wandered in to this very pretty cafe right in front of Patong Beach for a brunch. This is a very pretty cafe with a fun tropical beach vibe, while also being classy. The waiters are really friendly, Jojo took special care of us recommending the food and drinks. There are sufficient options for vegetarians along with a really good menu for the egg / meat eaters. Very relaxing restaurant near this part of Patong.

This was probably the best meal we enjoyed in our 3 week holiday travelling through Vietnam, then Cambodia and into Thailand to finish our honeymoon. Roy and his team were very attentive, the cocktails were really tasty and reasonably priced (especially with happy hour!), the Pad Thai was beautiful and my wife described her western meal choice of an open steak sandwich as the best she has ever had! Desserts were then also amazing, all homemade and fresh. It was a 10/10 experience, certainly recommend.

Had eggs Benedict’s, egg omelette and hot cakes for brunch on a sunny afternoon! The egg omelette doesn’t taste as nice as the eggs Benedict. Hot cakes were indeed delicious with lots of eggs tasting batter. The hollandaise sauce on eggs Benedict was tasty and smooth and goes perfectly well with the poach eggs and lovely muffins. Service is good, kudos to Veer ! Had a wonderful time at the Hern and the decor is insta-perfect:)
