“one of the best restaurants in Pattaya”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Haven't been to CDA for a few months so due for a visit. I always wonder why I don't come here every week as it is so good. Impeccable service and fab food. The attention to detail by Blu (owner) is very much in evidence to make this an all round 5 star experience. We started with the portobello mushrooms and crab starter - really excellent clean fresh taste. Followed by the Black Angus rib eye steak - I would recommend this restaurant as the go-to place for the best steaks in Pattaya. We had an excellent wine recommended by Blu and by the way, the wine list and cocktails are really good here. The restaurant has lovely decor and a really nice outside garden and inside bar area where you can enjoy pre- or apres dinner drinks. An excellent evening.

“Great”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Just a quick comment. You must try their portabella mushroom appetizer! Make a reservation to be safe. It was quite busy and we had to wait 20 min for a table.

“True to my word...”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Having written a review of my favourite restaurant in Pattaya before moving to Phnom Penh
last September;
I (true to my word) returned to CDA for Christmas lunch.
Was I a happy guy?.. not half!!!
My 4th Christmas lunch in as many years & each & everyone so memorable mak,mak..
I cannot compliment the overall experience enough.. from the host & hostess' welcome,
& all their super staff both guys & gals.. to the sumptuous food. Superb taste & as usual
best quality produce & finest ingredients, prepared & cooked by chefs that take a great
pride in their chosen profession.
A traditional Xmas lunch so far from home is such a pleasure..
I define my experience as Great Food with portions enough, Fine Wines, a Terrific Ambience
with sevice above most.
I purposly have not described the meal as it was - an outstanding Xmas Lunch...
Please (God willing) reserve my able for next Christmas!
Actually ther was one dissapointment! CDA was closed the next night.. my last night
before leaving Pattaya.
Should be listed as no.1 in Pattaya...

“Sensational”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went to Cafe des Amis for New Years Eve, it was a Special New Years Eve menu, when we arrived the staff made us very welcome. The food was sensational and the managment attentive but not overpowering.My wife and I chose the same thing (which is very unusual for us), we started with fresh crab cakes with a dill sauce then for the main we had what must have been the best Lamb Wellington ever,'' Wow'' they should make this a regular dish on the main menu. We finished with a strawberry short cake that melted in your mouth.
The night was absoluetely fantastic! A big thanks go to the managment and staff for all there efforts.

“Lives up to its "Fine Dining" tag!!!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

I and 2 friends ate here on the 27th Dec. we were in Pattaya 7 nights and ate in 5 restaurants including Mantra (#1 on TA). I would say when you take everything into account this was the best. Beautiful courtyard entrance where you can sit in and eat. We chose to eat inside & the decor was what you'd expect from a top end restaurant. The service was almost perfect. The food was delicious. We had pate & camembert to start & duck with orange sauce, beef bourgingon & lamb shank for main. We will certainly be returning when we next visit Pattaya. Keep up the good work
