A truly French excperince in Pattaya. The food is cooked with love by Josef (the owner) that is a well known Chef. The restaurant is inside a country style house, with a warm welcome and excellent pates, stewes and cheeses. Good selection of wines at reasonable price, this restaurant is a jem.

A hidden treasure. From the moment we walked through the enchanting entrance we loved it ️xX Amazing food & ambiance. Five on our table and everybody had a different dish. We all argued as to who's food was best. Possibly the best restaurant in pattaya.

Been a while since we visited, and managed to get a table with only two days notice - IF we went late. Who could resist, given that option! It's still very good, very country-bistro with rustic food. Promised myself I'd resist ordering the 5-hour lamb, but when it was delivered to the next table and the lid was lifted from... More

Three of us went there and all 3 had excellent food, starters included fois gras, crab cocktail and a soup, all excellent. For mains we had monkfish, seabass and rump steak. All were wonderful and rump steak being a rarity on menus in Thailand was a must. It was superb, great flavour, tender and cooked to perfection. The desserts were... More

Had a country pate starter, that was OK, Duck in red wine sauce for main. almost tasteless and a tiny portion, sparrow sized, 4 mouth fulls and gone. French fries were the side, dire, tried 5 or 6...

I was there for the first time with 3 friends. I ordered the beef shiskabobs which was way too much food for me. I was gladly given a take away box, as were the others in our group. The checks are not brought to the table which I found bizarre. When you are finished you just go to see the... More

A friend took me to this place last week and we had a great time. The place for sure is difficult to find and very small. Around 30 covers. Atmosphere is very good. Food is very nice. We had pate and crab salad as starters and steak as main. Service is good and the owner is very friendly. Will certainly... More

This restaurant has its perversities - it is located in a tricky-to-find spot and is shut on Tuesdays and Wednesdays - but it is worth overcoming any inconveniences to go there. It is the best restaurant in Pattaya for my money. Charming provincial ambience with low-lit tables far enough apart for intimate conversation. Attentive service and, although the food can... More
