“Misleading name”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

You expect French food from Bernard, but it's Thai food, and good Thai food with lots of choice. Expected "Steak Frites" got duck in red Curry. Not about to complain. House wines reasonable for Thailand, and good enough. Bernard welcoming, but a bit "envahissant." Staff sweet and trying to be helpful, with usual Thaï cluelessness about foreign languages. I went twice!

“Went many times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

A little hard to find from the beach road, but once you have found it, you will return. Sand floor, rustic assortment of tables and chairs, good, cheap food. The wait staff are very friendly and seem to enjoy their work. Sunset views, glass of wine or a beer, what more could you want. UNLESS Chez himself (somewhat excentric Frenchman) wanders in to say hi. Most enjoyable lunch and dinner can be had any day of the week.

“Great food on Patong Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Discovered this little restaurant straight on the beach by chance but kept going back a few times. Very decent food with your feet in the sand. One of only a few places where you can eat directly on Patong beach (the neighbors are good too). And most importantly: very reasonable prices!

“Brilliant place for lunch or dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My theory is that all food in Thailand, whatever restaurant will have a certain standard. It will be good. But, Chez Bernard was so much better than good! And good value for money too.
We ordered a beef red curry, and a beef stir fry with cashew nuts. There was more than enough meat (inadequate servings are a problem in some restaurants). spicy as hell, typical Thai food. I do not get Thai food much at home, so i could not put my fork down until all the food was gone.
I highly recommend it. The ambience is good and it is one of the few restaurants which are on the beach.
