Still my favourite.

I go back again and again. Jose is the perfect host and I love his food. I always go on my first night in town and the last night before I leave. Keep doing what you're doing Jose and thank you very much.

This restaurant is a real French deal in Pattaya. The owner is a famous French chef that manage the restaurant with her wife. They have got a down to earth menu, with country style French dishes such lamb stew, terrines, and Foie Gras as top dish. A real French treat

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

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
