Great food and friendly service

An unassuming small restaurant in a Jomtien bar area, L'Arc offers surprisingly delicious French cuisine. The chef came from his kitchen to welcome us and suggest some dishes and drinks.

Loved the food and the service was excellent... where in Thailand can you eat authentic French food. The Chef and owner was a very friendly and charming man and clearly has a flare in the kitchen. The wine list is limited but then its Thailand so not much you can do about that. My only criticism is the décor. It... More

Very good food to be had here, that had a home cooked style feel about it. A decent menu that is not huge and thereby fresh and cooked to order. The owner is friendly and comes out of the kitchen to see you once the food is out, a very nice touch to show he is interested and happy to... More

This is the best meal we had during our vacation in Thailand. A small nice cosy, romantic atmosphere restaurant in Jomtien. The staff were incredibly friendly. We ordered seabass and a lamb shank, oh and they have foie gras! sooo DELICIOUS! It is high quality dish like you would expect from a real french chef :). We would definitely go... More

A night I will never forget. The staff were amazing. And the food was classic and wonderful. There were some dishes that we just wanted to try, and the chef and staff were great about just preparing a taste. I would definitely go back to this restaurant my next time in Pattaya. Very quaint and romantic.

If you crave for authentic French Cuisine, this the place to go. Quiet atmosphere. The French Chef occasionally offers some specialties. I rated this restaurant "very Good" because of the price; however, the food is always excellent!

A little bit of France right in the Jomtein Complex. The food is superb, sourced from many countries to provide you with a quality dish. The chef/owner and his wife delight in spending time with you and making sure your experience is great. Duck, lamb, snails, beef, frog legs, chicken for main/entrees. Their Apple Tartin or Rhubarb Tartin are simply... More

typical french cuisine restaurant, this place is not the place to be: food is without character, too expensive, and the place is not charming at all....
