My partner and I always make reservations at the Ritz when we visit Jomtien. The food and service is beyond compare. This is a great place to enjoy a special meal with your significant other.
Highly recommended.

Have just come back from four weeks in Pattaya and had dinner twice a week at the Cafe Ritz in the Jomtien Complex. The food and service is a good as ever and great value for money at $12 per person.
Wine is expensive everywhere in Thailand simply because the government tax om a bottle of wine is the same as the tax on a bottle of whisky, gin or vodka!
Cafe Ritz is still packed most nights but is now facing some really tough competition from new restaurants nearby where they serve both European and Thai food. Perhaps its time the menu changed, or they consider adding a Thai menu!
If you are going there, it's still worth booking a table in advance, or you may have to wait for one to become available as most are booked for 7.30 p.m. Go later - about 9 p.m. and there will be tables available.

This used to be a terrific restaurant a couple of years ago but on our last few visits it was very poor, the quality of the food is poor and the sevice is poor. The vegetables came nearly 10 mins before the main course and the leek and potatoe soup was like eating mashed potatoes. Great shame.

What a great find, this small restaurant had 30covers but was very well patronised. I ear there 4times, a3course meal which was so competitively priced they could do with premises 3times the suze, to accommodate all who wanted to eat there. The staff were all happy and smiley, and the food was delicious. Drinks very fairly priced also. A great find . Try it yourself

This restaurant in the Jomptien complex could be easily missed as it has a narrow frontage between other establishments which offer more carnal delights.
One of the very efficient and friendly waiting staff told us it is owned by an Englishman. I don't know if this is true but the menu is chockablock with traditional English dishes. We visited twice as we enjoyed it so much the first time.
The portions are huge and most people I suspect would be hard pressed to manage three courses. We tried the steak and kidney pie, and also the steak, kidney and mushroom pie, both of which were excellent (with suet, not shortcrust pastry) - large chunks of meat and kidneys in very tasty pie sauce, and a selection of fresh vegetables. You can have liver and bacon or liver and onions. I had the latter. Very large portions of of liver, beautifully cooked and with a good strong flavour. Lamb cutlets were excellent . The apple and rhubarb crumble with a choice of cream or ice cream ( no custard unfortunately ) was well liked.
We've had less satisfactory traditional English grub in most English establishments where we've had this sort of food, and would love something like this in Central London. We wish we had found the Cafe Ritz sooner so we could have tried more of their dishes.
The carafe wine was ok for the price.
