The food was about 2 or 3 times the price of other restaurants for the same quality of food. They also charge an extra 10% service fee on top of the already overpriced menu. The service was below average and not what you'd expect from an expensive restaurant. The views and the ambience were great though.

Extensive variety if you're looking for local food or a break from it. Pizzas are thin crust and you can put whatever you want on them. We ate the gazpacho every day. Best morning glory I had in Thailand. Breakfast wasn't included for us, but we're glad we paid for it. Be sure to get a little fruit drink shot... More

Its very rare to stay at a hotel that has great food. Lunch and dinner is open to the public so even if you're not a guest is worth swinging by the Meridian if you're looking for an upscale dining experience with delicious fresh food, impeccable service and breathtaking ambiance plus the view of course. Every thing on the menu... More

We ate in the Latest Recipe restaurant on 2 separate evenings during our stay at Le Meridien, and found the experience to be first class all the way. The setting and ambience is beautiful (almost reminiscent of Key West) with the large wooden 2 story structure, and the tables which all look out over the illuminated pool area and the... More

The food here, from breakfast, to lunch and especially dinner is clearly prepared with care. Everything was so delicious, the portions were large and the food was fresh and flavorful. The staff are attentive and friendly and it's such a great value.

We stayed at Le Meridien and decided to eat here the final night because we were being lazy :) Lunch we always ate at the little stalls on the side of the road to get as close to authentic Thai as possible but struggled to find a non western place for dinner. But even though it is toted as "international",... More
