We went here a few times and found the food to be of good quality and very reasonably priced. My husband I wanted a break from Thai food occasionally as we were away 3 weeks and so having a fillet steak for 490 baht was a great find especially considering its size and quality. The wine is priced at 170 baht a glass and was also very nice french wine. The owner (french) and his thai wife are very friendly and professional. It is litter all a stones throw from the centara grand hotel (turn left as you come out the main entrance and it is on the other side of the road) which was also perfect when we were tired and didn't fancy a long walk. I would definitely recommend it and it was also full of tourists from France, Germany, England and Australia which I saw as a positive and they obviously returned again and again as they seemed to have become accustomed with the owners.

We enjoyed Swiss National Day... and several other meals at La Paillote.... And each time, our service, meal, and ambience were great! Additionally, several evenings after being out and about, we spent time for our "night cap" and also experienced a lovely service. La Paillote has the best as far as a welcoming staff and fine food! We recommend it highly.... for an aperitif, or a meal, a dessert or a night cap...

Delicious food here and friendly, competent service (the two don't always come together in Western-style restaurants in Thailand). This time I had a starter of a variety of mushrooms, which was delicious, and pork with mustard sauce, also great. My wife had a salad (with anchovies taken out) and chicken in a mustard sauce, which she also loved. And then she had a huge ice cream. The house wine was OK, with the Bordeaux better than the other reds and a reasonable price. We like sitting on the side tables, in a shaded area, but sometimes the competing music from the Italian place next door is too much. This time we sat inside that that was fine. Quieter, pleasant, interesting art work. We always eat here when we go to Hua Hin and are never disappointed.

We dined on Sunday, August 10 around 2130. We were immediately greeted by the proprietor's wife and seated. Service was definitely above Thai standard and we could tell that they had been trained well! The ambiance was very comfortable and relaxed. The menu is well comprised of French favorites at reasonable prices. The owners left and we ordered the mixed wild mushrooms, stuffed crab and foie gras. Presentation was acceptable and we loved the amuse bouche prior to each course. Many places just do not do that and we loved it! The reason we rated this as average is because all three dishes were not seasoned properly. The portions were perfect but the food did not have any taste (or all tasted exactly the same!). Since it being a Sunday night in Thailand during the off season or that their bosses had left, it seamed that the Chef or sous chef did not taste our food before plating. Would we go back again? Yes, but i think we would go earlier in the evening as to catch kitchen in action. I think the restaurant is worth visiting and whoever reads this, I highly suggest visiting. I hope Gaston reads this and tastes some of the dishes or returns for a surprise visit after leaving for the evening check on the line.
