“If Thailand offered Michelin stars...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

This place would certainly be in for a chance of getting one!

Still pinching ourselves as we can't believe such a culinary heaven exists in Pai. Hats off to the head chef, the guy's a genius! Would definitely recommend the tartare, sticky pork ribs and lavender soufflé. Great selection of wine too - we went for a Tempranillo, which cost just under 900 baht - ridiculous value considering the hefty import tax the restaurants have to work around for non-Thai wines.

Whilst it is very much a high-end culinary experience the atmosphere is very relaxed and cleverly avoids that feeling of being overly pretentious. Every table and chair is different in style and a lot of care and attention to detail has gone into the design/layout. Forget the perfectly ironed table clothes and overly attentive service, this place is about you, your food and a glass of wine! The live band was great too - especially when the bongo player decided to bust out some freestyle!!

Thank you for an amazing experience!

“Upscale but not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I was looking for a place to have a decent glass of wine. I selected this place due to the high Tripadvisor reviews. The location is very nice and the restaurant is made up very nicely. However, the table we were sitting at was very hard to eat on as it was lower than the chairs, but it had a nice view on the gardens. I found the selection of Tapas and the very small selection of (open) wines rather disappointing. From a Tapas and WINE bar I would expect a bit more. The food was ok, but not great. That the Papas bravas are served with a BBQ sauce is a bit weird. The bread selection was also rather disappointing for a place like that.

“Nice food! Excellent looking place!”

Spanish tapas themed restaurant in Pai!! :) loved the place and food was tasty and the wine was great. Only downside was that for the price the portions were small and the restaurant was extremely difficult to find.
