This small restaurant is located in the Jomtien Complex, behind Dongtan beach and very close to Jomtien beach. It's managed by a young and talented French couple. He is chef in the cuisine and she manages the service with a wonderful smile, gentleness and efficiency. The food (French recipes) is very good and, for this category, the prices are really... More

This small French restaurant is located in a soi frequented by gay, in the heart of Jomthien Complex Pattaya, in front of a low level small Italian pizzeria. There are tables inside and outside. The dining room is simply furnished and has a single small air conditioning machine and some fans. The outdoor part, higher than the road is often... More

The food is good quality,well prepared and presented. Excellently cooked. The wine list is well selected and the house wine, very drinkable. The variety of food and wine is extremely satisfying. The host and hostess, Christoph chef and Lydia front of house, are delightful and as I am often there as a solo diner, I am made to feel very... More

Last night we went again to this restaurant, with warm welcomes from Lydia and Christophe, we felled immediately home. The terrine de foie gras is just superb, natural and tasteful. Last night rabbit was recommended, wow, just divine! Made in the best way, with a sauce that's delicious. Served with gratin dauphinois, which is one of our favorites in L'Arc.... More

We had excellent service, but the food was not great, especially the duck which was tough and over cooked. Starter of baked cheese was excellent and the cocktails great also!

This is an immaculate, hands-on, family-run French restaurant that serves impeccable food and excellent wine. Food of this quality is hard to find anywhere, let alone Jomtien. The husband-and-wife team who run it -- charming, friendly, knowledgable -- are a huge part of the appeal. The atmosphere outside can be pretty raucous. Ignore it. Go. If you're here on holiday...

Well established restaurant cooks with confidence, style, panache, a welcoming smile and a delicious kir. Foie gras, escargots, rabbit and real local specials - beef tongue last night was spectacular. My favorite in Jomtien by a long mile.

A bit difficult to find for the unknown, but it is really worth it! The retaurant is small with only a few tables inside, I recommend to book in advance. We did not book, but were there around 7pm, which was just ahead of the rush? The owner wished us welcome upon arrival and told us a little bit about... More

It's hard to believe that such an original French cuisine is in the neighbour. The food is fantastic made with fine ingredients and professional cooking. The service is friendly and charming. We really had a great time there, thanks to Madame Lydia and Monsieur Christophe(the owner)! We were there quite late so we only craved for a light meal. We... More

Charming hosts and a very good meal. The set menu is inexpensive, the alacarte a little more pricey but high quality & good portions make it good value. The French couple run the restaurant, he is in the kitchen and she manages front of house very effectively. The few thai staff are well trained. While the restaurant is possibly a... More
