Description: WOOD FIRED FROM THE HEARTFAVOLA, a specialty Italian restaurant by the Kok River, is the ultimate riverside dining destination in Chiang Rai for the “lazy gourmet” in a contemporary country scene, with breathtaking views of the Kok River and surrounding Mountains either day or evening. The cuisine in Favola is more of a journey rather than a meal period reflecting its name which means “fable or story” in English, where simplistic Italian flavours are presented from our signature wood fired oven and char-grill along with an array other Authentic Italian favourites.

“Good burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

With few other dining options at the Meridien Chiang Rai, Favola is a safety net. Great burger. OK pizza.

“Good food but very overpriced”

This is a great little restaurant if you are staying at Le Meridien. I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit, though.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We dined twice and really enjoyed on both occasions. Ate a variety of dishes and including pizza pastas and meat dishes. Little bit expensive for Thailand but the setting is gorgeous.
