Hidden in a small street on Pratumnak Hill, this restaurant is a true gem. Run by Jose , French from the province of Auvergne. And that you will find back in the menu.

This is a restaurant where, if you are lucky, you will get to eat really good food, cooked by a really nice guy. Only open 5 days a week. Reservations are recommended as apparently he is full every night. Lamb is great. Oysters are great. Rabbit is great. All is great.

This is the best restaurant in Pattaya. It is beautiful, run by a big, charismatic French man. I cannot recommend it enough... it actually makes Pattaya a more beautiful place... for the quality of the place it is ridiculously cheap. The owner does it from a place of love. GO GO GO

Hidden away in a side road but very well worth visiting. A quirky place with lots of atmosphere. Food is excellent and the wines are reasonably priced. 5 Hour lamb is wonderful!

The excellent food is complemented by superior service from the waitstaff, and the prices are... More

Nice cousy french restaurant well hidden from the outher world... The food was excellent and the service fantastic. The owner checked everything and was around the whole time. And the staff seemed very competent and could respond to all our questions. I will definitely return to this restaurant on my next trip to Pattaya.
