“A little French in Jomtien”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

A nice little French restaurant among Thai eateries in Jomtien. The owners - Lydia and Christophe were extremely friendly. Nice quiet location, not sure what the other reviewer meant by "boys" and their children. Don't worry - the ladyboys don't eat small children! This is where the parents could teach the meaning of diversity to their children, and accepting differences.
Anyway - back to the restaurant.. I had lamb shank and my partner had John dory with pesto sauce. My lamb was cooked to perfection but the fish was slightly overlooked. We had cremé brûlée with raspberry and finished up with coffees on the houses. The price was very reasonable and we had such a fantastic dining experience. A great change from local cuisine after being away for a while. We wish them all the best with their venture, you can see their love and care they put into this restaurant. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Jomtien.

“la mauvaise nourriture”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Don't waste your baht
Expecting something special - major let down. Three course set menu, 3/3 fails. Sliced beef with blue cheese sauce - tainted stew. Creme brûlée with fresh strawberry - strawberry yogurt with caremelized sugar.
An affront to French cuisine

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Went there yesterday with three friends for the first time. Wow, was i impressed!
We had a warm welcome from the owner, and she was happy to explain the menu. There were two set menus and the a la carte. I chose the 320 Bt menu and it was delicious and excellent value.
We were even given a free glass of Sambuca, which finished off the evening nicely.
I look forward to going back there soon
