“Very tasty, great beer not too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I have been to Wine Connection a few times. With my girlfriend, sister, friends. The food is delicious and although it is expensive for Thai standards, considering it is Falang food, then not too bad. The service is pretty good and the menu is extensive and varied. The pizzas are worth the price.

I couldnt go to Wine Connection every day but I definitely recommend it for a treat. The desserts are brillliant and the Belgian beers...

“Quality establishment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

There are a number of these establishments in Thailand, I visited two, this one in Chalong and another in the central festival area of Phuket, they all serve as wine shops, delicatessens and restaurants. The wine selection is very good and reasonably priced, the deli looks to be quality produce and the food is both tasty, well presented and good value. Some of the waiting on staff can be a bit surly, but I put this down to language difficulties as on the whole orders were taken quickly and the food arrived promptly. If you are a smoker then choose a table outside as inside it is forbidden. The steaks are good quality and the Thai food is really good. Avoid the risottos as they were not the best and on the small side, so not good value. On the whole a good eating experience.

“Good selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Wine Connection have a good selection of wines, including a fair number at lower - for Thailand - prices - under Baht 400 per bottle) which are usually reasonable quality. As they mark ratings - Wine Spectator, Robert Parker etc - on the wines which have been reviewed you can select according to quality and value.

They also offer some nice deli items - croissants, pates, meats and cheeses.

My only complaint is that Australian wine which is subject to much lower rates of duty than other areas thanks to Asean free-trade agreements, costs as much or more than highly-taxed European, US and South American wines. Wine is a luxury item in Thailand and it seems that the distributors are keeping the tax-savings on Australian wines.
