Description: The restaurant is a true french bistro spirit declining with talent and fantasy French cuisine updated. Since the restaurant opened in 2010, the passion to cook continues to transmit Chief chef. French tradition continues there, but, sure of her roots, she is also open to the wind of change. The breath of the younger generation knew lighten without depersonalize, sauces and dishes emblematic of "Lyon's Mothers". Our chief issue of the prestigious cooking school in Paris Alain Ducasse makes you discover the best of the french taste. "By respecting tradition and maintaining the associations of tastes, we would reinterpret Lyonnais cuisine by adding a modern twist to make it lighter, more accessible away from our France we use the vast majority of French or quality products equivalent. The selects from the best local producers or from France products to concoct delicious dishes adding his touch of modernity. The pride of the house: Egg casserole green asparagus Beef Bourguignon, Pate roasted chicken house, lamb shank 3 hours, burnt cream or chocolate mousse. Our wine cellar was developed in collaboration with our French sommelier and each of our bottles come complete harmony with your dishes

“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

It is a small French restaurant. It's clean but the ambiance is sad. The owner will take your order. Service is unprofessional. The food is not wonderful and not generous. It's expensive for what you eat. Sorry but I don't recommend this place.

“Delicious French Food”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Owners Christophe and Lydia are great hosts and chefs. Not to be missed
The moules au gratin are fabulous and the pate de fois gras beyond expectations. A good selection of moderately priced wines to quiff with our meal.

“French Sophistication in the East”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Numerous visits to L'Arc proves to me that it is always a pleasurable experience if you are looking for excellent quality French Cuisine. Stylish decor will make you feel relaxed in what is sometimes a very Chaotic Jomtien complex.

Delicious is and understatement for the varied menu on offer here, no it is not the cheapest of restaurants, but the old adage that " You get what you pay" for is certainly true here.

Quality, Taste, Hospitality,Comfort and Variety are not always easy to come by in many reataurants but at L'arc its Guaranteed.

We will be back - Definitely !

“Authentic good French food.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten here about 3 times recently, and can really recommend it. Very friendly and helpful owners. I think I would describe it as an oasis of sophistication in the chaos that is pattaya / jomtien!
