This restaurant is part of a franchise or a chain very popular in thailand. I tried already their branch in Bangkok and this in Patong has the same menu and style and my experience here is positive same the first time. Price is ok for the quality of the food. Just same issues with the staff who speaks english just... More

Visited on Christmas Eve 2015. Hadn't pre booked but no problems, they soon found a table for me and my friend. The waiting staff were super efficient despite being run off their feet. The drinks and food were soon served and all were very palatable. Unfortunately I didn't sample the wine but the local beer was just as good for... More

A typical chain restaurant, this on is much better service than in Patong, but it is still a chain with pre made and heated up food. Wine is good, cheese plater etc good, but food from general mean remade and heated, often badly. Service good, clean and comfortable with inside air con or outside seating.

The title says it all; It's OK, but nothing special. Having said that, I go back many times. It's a good staple restaurant outside a predominantly wine shop. The food is OK, and they have improved their selection of cheeses and other tid bits for sale inside..

Went to this restaurant for the 4th time hoping for better luck... Atmosphere good, service good, clean, BUT very bad cusine, always disappointing food despite changing the choice on their menu at each visit. Today had their cesar salad for starters: the dressing and romaine alright, but the bread croutons in the salad were unmistakably old and stale and the... More

I eat at the Chalong wine connection regularly. The food is interesting and well priced. The service is mostly OK but sometimes a bit of a struggle. There is no alcohol service on Buddha days. They specialise as a "wine shop with food and selected delicatessen items" chain throughout Thailand.

I think the staff at Wine Connection in Chalong have perhaps misinterpreted or taken the Thai Alcohol restrictions to the extreme, we ordered a 3 course sit down meal however refused a glass of wine because our order was placed 15min after 2pm. Thailand restricts the sale of alcohol from commercial outlets during 2pm - 5pm however this is occurrence... More
