“Should not be missed for mainstream restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Decided on Regina for dinner as it was on the riverside, like a lot of others, but half the price! It looks unusual at first but go through to the garden and is beautiful. The food was really good and aslong as you like cats (lots of nice ones wandering around) and cheap beer! Great experience and more people should give it a go.

Regina Book & Coffee is a gem among the very expensive restaurants on this street. From outside it looks like an old curiosity shop, you enter, cross the shop and reach the lovely, peaceful garden on the river front. The food is excellent value for it's price and the plates are generous. As a cat lover, I could stay there for days. The cats didn't disturb us, but didn't reject some cuddling or food ;) They weren't also camera shy. The music played in the background varies from Chopin to Elvis, very relaxing. Not to miss.

Regina Riverside is certainly not 'fast food'. Come here to relax and watch the comings and goings on the river and the market on the opposite bank. The restaurant is interestingly laid out: from the front it does not look like a restaurant at all and the dining area is at the back, in the garden.

The food is just heaven. Clearly freshly cooked and simply delicious. My wife and I ate to our fill, plus a drink for THB 200, so excellent value for money as well.

I have docked 1 star for the roaming cats. I love cats, but I'm very wary of what you can get if they bite. I am still happy to visit again, in fact my taste buds will demand it of me.

Enjoy.

Visited this cafe two years ago and loved it , so was keen to go back . Had lunch the first day in Chiang Mai and while the food was ok the cats out back are out of control .
On my last visit the cats are part of the character of the place but its gone to far . We had 4 cats jumping on our table trying to take food of our plates at once - hey I'm a cat lover but its gone to far

We didn't stay here but spent a lovely evening at the cafe. We spotted the garden from across the river and were immediately on our way. Loved the entrance with the old chests and lamps. They have a beautiful garden right by the river…perfect spot for tea or beer! And if you love cats, this place is a bonus. It has all sorts of beautiful cats dozing around the property.

We didn't stay at the guest house but did have lunch here. Food was cheap and tasty. The setting is in need of spruce up. Lots of cats wandering around the place but didn't bother us. A good option if staying close by but wouldn't go out of my way to go here.
