I always look forward to an evening at Mata Hari and it always lives up to my expectations. My last visit was no different. As usual we were greeted at the door and given the option of going to our table or having a drink in the bar. Apart from the strong smell of cigarettes, the bar is a great start to the evening: it also helps that the barman makes a great dirty martini!
While the menu has pretty much remained the same over the past few years, there is still plenty to choose from. I had the lobster and prawn cocktail which never disappoints. And then, for the first time, I ordered the Steak Mata Hari. The steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was thick, rich and shiny. I would highly recommend it.
Food quality is high, but still the most outstanding thing is the service. The wait staff is attentive, friendly and above all, professional. I think the prices are reasonable given the overall classy atmosphere and excellent service. The wine list is also extensive and very well priced. Even the house wines are more than drinkable.
As usual my friends and I ended the evening back in the bar with coffees and one too many glasses of wine! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Mata Hari is the best overall dining experience in Pattaya – by far!
