So many years, still great classic French food. Smiling service and always good quality food. Good to meet people at the "aperitif" time, good wine list. one of the best beef tartar in town.

This restaurant has been a steady place for more years than I can recall
The ambiance with the regular expats sitting at the bar reminds of the French cafes of Lyon ( hence the name of the restaurant )
The food has always been great and I have never been disappointed

I've lived in Bangkok for 9 years, but had never got around to eating at Le Bouchon. Last night I finally had the time and inclination to go there, and was pretty hopeful given the reviews and attitude of the management.

I don't really feel compelled to talk about the location, though to be sure, it's in a seedy and depressing area of town. Some people drop a star because of that, but that's a little unfair, I feel.

What they should be dropping stars for are the following: too dim lights, tired decor; corner cutting, like a wedge of lime with the fish instead of lemon, and unremarkable, overpriced food.

The mussels were local and weeny (260 baht). The seabass (580) was small and overshadowed by dull, limp veg and odd choices, like thin slices of tomato. For the price I expected a gloriously plump fillet that dominated the plate, and sensuous white wine sauce.

Both plates were very hot, and I got the sense that this is a ploy to mask deficiencies: hot food has less chance of irking customers.

Turns out that the Thai chef had knocked up my meal, not the owner. As ever in Thailand, Thais should really steer clear of Western food unless it's their passion and they've been extensively trained.

It might not be the cup of tea for everyone but in complete fairness: this institution is up & running for nearly 20 years ! No need to say more than that.

Wine list is comprehensive with quality wine at reasonable price. Food is simple but properly executed, service is good and you even get to be offered an amuse-bouche as well as a pre-dessert: nice touch !
Serge the owner is still here to greet each and every Guests with care and humility, taking order, checking satisfaction to each table and to farewell his customers.

Nothing grand but difficult to be disappointed.

Very good French restaurant but right smack in the heart of the gogo clubs on Patpong. Tiny place and you feel cramped at times.
