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

Excellent french cuisine cooked and served beautifully by the owner and his charming wife. The only downside was the excruciating "music" and cacophony of noise from nearby bars.

When in Jomtien, we can't wait to go for dinner at this restaurant. Here you get real French cooked food, honest prepared, with the best and fresh ingredients. Arrived on the 23th of December, restaurant closed and we were feeling lost. 24th was already fully booked, so no other option than wait for the next day. It's worth to be... More

If you want the real deal, then I recommend L'Arc. I live in Jomtien and have eaten here twice in the last 2 months, on both occasions the food was excellent and the service top drawer. We were there on the 7th Ovember (their fourth anniversary) and they even treated us to a digestif afterwards. The food is of a... More

A small French Restaurant nestling amongst the bars of Jomtien, well worth finding mainly because of the excellent attentive service of Linda the owner. A menu to please all at very reasonable prices. Lucky you if you can afford or want Fine Dining every night, but L'Arc is more casual with the same quality food without the price tag.

Last Night we went to LArc on the back of numerous glowing reviews here on TA. Unfortunately these are GROSSLY misleading as it describes this restaurant as a moderately priced $7 - $14 menu which is really more like $25+ per dish The Location is a small converted shop-house in the heart of the Gay Boys section of Jomtien Complex...
