We wanted to go there many times and seen the "Up's and Down's" on tripadvisor but we know that a eatery does not need to be "good" or "bad" based on reviews ....we know how the "cookie crumbles" and the only way to find out is...to go there!
Therefore we can now state our experience and it was not good! We already know that we did not go there for the location because it is bad so we do not judge the Natan's on that too much. However we must say it is a very very busy and polluted location hence not at all cozy nor romantic or in particular good for your in-take of fresh air. We actually always prefer seaside eateries with ocean views and breez but sometimes we of course go "off course"! I do not really know how to describe Natan's but best would be "another converted shophouses" run by a "Restauranteur a la minute"! The service was ok but not really attentive for such a relative small restaurant and we often needed to get the attention of the service staff.
Now the food... Not sure what it is but best to describe is a "Maggie studio" where powder sauces dominate the skills of the master in the kitchen. The beef should have been imported as per menu but we are very doubtful of that as we had a tenderloin with tendons running throughout the rather small steak which of course made it a "bad" main course. We are steak lovers and seafood lovers but both opted for the steak this time hence we cannot judge the seafood.
The ambiance we believe is a real mix of ....? Not sure what to write about the decor because it is a real mix of a mix...maybe this describes it best (tables are also too close to each other). So...all in all not a place for us and we cannot recommend. However we are sure some people like it and the reviews do suggest this.

Delicious food, great service and nice-looking. Not the cheapest, but it's worth a visit especially if you like cheese, mussels and wine!

If you like to enjoy food in the noise and polution of the traffic, if you like to pay a lot for bad service and bad food, go there. Based on the recommendtions of tripadvisor we had a dinner here, which we regretted the moment we came in. This restaurant is on one of the busiest roads in Pattaya. We had to wait verylong for our food, and the quality was absolutely not what we are used to when we come to Thailand.

I think I will echo many of the recent reviews, they really need to get a grip on what is being served.
Steaks are really not bad ( a bit on the small side) but the sauces served - red wine, blue cheese etc are truly horrible, my companions red wine sauce was stone cold. My blue cheese sauce was meant to be Roquefort - I would be surprised if a piece of Roquefort was even waved over it.
The potato dauphinoise was ghastly- wierdly sweet.
The orders were muddled up and wrong fish arrived- it smelt off and had to be sent back.
For two courses the meal took over two hours- we were a large group.

However we had a pleasant evening, I think helped along with a few carafes of wine and we wanted to celebrate a birthday.
I think Le Patron needs to stop swanning about chatting to French customers and actually check the quality of what is coming out of his kitchen, it's not very good.
