Limited menu, but food quality & presentation consistent. The crab salad, rabbit speciality, grilled rib-eye steak & apple tart with calvados are higly recommended. The evening ambience is perfect for intimate conversations. Highly recommended, but booking is advisable.

We went with friends for a fine diner, so we had a lot of time to spend. You will need that, it take time to prepare the most delicious french food in the area. The french owner served us, very friendly, his thai wife is head of the kitchen. I ordered the lamb, cooked for 5 houres, very big portion,... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Pattaya. The owner is very involved and every dish is prepared to perfection. Hard to find but worth it.

Tucked away near Pattaya Water Park Au Bon Coin can be somewhat difficult to find but worth it when you. While the prices looked expensive, the food is delicious and size of the dishes ample, the lamb is served in a medium size saucepan with more than enough to satisfy most appetites, the duck is tender and the jus sensational....

I love this restaurant. The food never fails to please. The Rib Eye to my mind is the juiciest, most tender in the whole of Pattaya. It's a pity Khun Jose has only I serving waitress because I'm sure he has other things to do and he does work hard. I love it here....A Hidden Jewell.

It's a hide gem in Pratumnak. If it's your first time, you better call asking precise direction or alternative ask them to send a taxi to your hotel. Once the hard part is over (find the place), you'll step in a traditional Thai-French house, so warm, we felt welcome. The menu is French, but not the fine dining that you... More

Visited with friends for a special night. Mine host was friendly and helpful. The menu not vast but a good representation of French fare. I had the beef bourgongnon. Sauce was great, the beef a little dry and lacked some vegetables but still very tasty. My friends meals were similarly good but not great. I was disappointed with my duck... More

By far the best French restaurant in Pattaya- no idea why it is ranked so low. I have been going for years for the great food....fresh French oysters, foie gras, great meats including steaks, rabbit, and whatever has been flown in. The cheese platter is the best in the whole of Thailand. The atmosphere is very nice, quiet and romantic.... More

Fantasic owner make so delicious French food to very afordable prices. One of the best restaurants in Pattaya/Jomtien, but it can be difficult to find it. Be sure to book in advance, beacuse it's often fully booked
