“Consistently great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

As a regular to Cafe Des Amis for the past 3 years the food and service is fantastic and by far the best restaurant in Pattaya along with one of my favourites throughout Thailand.
Owner Blu, is very personable and will offer advice on wines and best dishes depending on personal taste. Service staff are attentive and relaxed and the layout and cosiness of Cafe Des Amis makes it a lovely relaxed experience. I have eaten one of the best Wagyu steaks here only last week and you will be pleased to know they can cut to size, unlike most fine dining restaurants.
New dishes pop up making it exciting for regular customers.
Location is great as you're tucked away from main road, this is a definite must to visit no matter how long you are staying in Pattaya

“Can't keep away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This restaurant is one of the very best in food presentation and taste. The staff are fantastic and the owner (Blu) has to be one of the friendly people I have ever met. His passion for the food and service is without exception. As the title says "we can't keep away"

“The best restaurant in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Visiting this restaurant each time we are in town.
Blue, the owner (not sure how ti write his name) is the best restaurant owner I've met!
He is driven with passion, has the best waiters, and his food is tastefull, well served and a pleasure to see your plate.
We've been there with small groups and several times with a table of 8, and each time all food is same time served, well warm and always fresh and a pleasure to eat.

“Argentinian steak is fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I'm becoming more of a regular at this little find, I love the location and that its off the main road and hidden a little bit, it's a little gem.

I enjoy dining outside as well as inside, both are good choices for me and the service has always been excellent, even when they restaurant is jammed things only slow down a tad, as you would expect.

The choice of music is also excellent and fits in with my taste to even go there for casual drinks at the bar.

This is also a place you can go solo and strike up some interesting conversation with one of the many locals that also have this place on their favorite list.

The owner is very knowledgable on what's on his menu and his wine list and has some fantastic recommendations.

The Argentinian steak is one of my favorites there now, it's not the most expensive on the menu as it's just one under their US prime, but I simply prefer the Argentinian medium rare, it's like a steak that melts in your mouth! As I'm a huge pea fan, I simply order some peas at the same time too.

The house wine is an excellent choice, which is La Minga (very smooth and must try)
It's hard for me to fault anything at Cafe Des Amis as I can see the owner (Blu) and his wife try very hard to continually make improvements

I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

“Good but slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Thsi restaurant has it all, best service, best food and prices are acceptable, the only problem this restaurant always has again and again is that when they get a few tables at the same time, the kitchen becomes very slow, quality is extremely high and worth to wait for it, but make sure you are not in a hurry, plenty of parking in front of the restaurant, but need attention to find it, as it is in a back road, atmosphere is great and luxury
