First the manager did not even greet us! Knowing that We are French, We thought He would be interested to say Hello at least. Second The mozzarella they served us was rotten! Of course they did not charge us. With so many other choices, To...More

Quiet location face to the sea. Staff was totally amateur (and strong smell of sweat !). The « salade gourmante « : 3 very small pieces of bland cheese, average duck breast, dry and hard chicken gizzards, and the salad dressing was a failure. Moreover,...More

Hidden away from the busy Main Street was this quiet restaurant. The service was great and the food was really nice classic Thai.

Amazing view on Chaweng bay, correct service, but tasteless food. the "duck confit" was very dry" and meat very tough. the is no effort on presentation and for the quality I think that prices are high. Go for the view, but have a drink only

We were worried looking at other reviews we wouldn't find this restaurant - if you're coming from north of Chaweng turn left just past the Anantara, from Chaweng right after Kandhaburi Resort. Follow the narrow road all the way to the end and you'll find...More

It took us a couple of attempts to find we were so glad we persevered. The setting is fantastic right on the waters edge, the food delicious while very reasonable and the staff as attentive as you could wish for.

Besides a great sense of hospitality, friendliness and warmth, Thai and French culture have in common their excellent reputation for food quality and diversity. As a result, "Au Café des Arts" offers a wide selection of dishes inspired from both cultures, mixing tastes and delights for the maximum pleasure of the big as well as the smallest hungry travellers.Located north of Chaweng Beach opposite to the desert island of "Koh Matlang" just 1 KM from the center where are all the shop and the night-life but far away enough for don't heard about any discotheques.
