Tucked way off the main thoroughfare in Jomtien far from the congestion of central Pattaya this gastronomic enterprise has both wine list and assortments of French and Continental food to please any palate. It is located far off the beaten path (so I should not tell you about it) and you need to pass a local outdoors restaurant to get to it. As you proceed south on Thuppraya Road going away from the city you may exit at Jomtien soi 8 eastbound to follow the signs. If your desires are as simple as chicken in red wine sauce or as eclectic as Chateaubriand they can provide it here. Decor would make you think you are in Southern Lorraine and you dine in air conditioned comfort regardless of weather. Unreservedly desirable and priced within the budget of a minor splurge. Bon Appetite.

Everything always works at Cafe des Amis, a claim not often made for the other high-end venues in Pattaya but here, like fine clockwork, all parts fit and work with an amazing precision. The ambience is quiet and reserved (but not stuffy) welcoming of an occasional peal of laughter; the staff always attentive (but discrete) and know enough not to hover; the food is always pleasing and well presented and the management team understands that it is the total experience that brings us back again and again.

Highly recommended - overall the best restaurant in town.

Fantastic service, food, ambience. Wish I had discovered this gem earlier in our holiday, If this restaurant where in England I'm sure would have 5 stars.

Fantastic Setting, Fantastic Food.
The owner Blu has done a wonderful job and maintains to keep impressing me every time I go.
You won't be able to complain about the service as the staff are attentive and do a great job

The food is fresh and the wine list is very good, my favourite being the "La Minga"
US Prime is awesome and being a fan of prawn cocktails he serves a healthy size dish and the prawns are fresh in every day, this shows throughout all the food that I have tried there that everything is fresh and at a high standard.

It has to be one of the best fine dining restaurants in pattaya without doubt.

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.
