Restaurateur for 5 years, living in Asia 10 years and still sometimes you find a hidden Gem such as “la cote de beuf”...

First of we arrived without reservation and faced a full house place (which is in quiet times a good indication of quality); heading to the bar to wait a table we got served couples of My Thai some to almost perfection.
We ordered immediately our food and got a table waiting for us within 15 minutes.

The dinner itself was just great, cold cuts and cheese platter as starter (that is a portion big enough for 1 person meal) tasty cheeses and ham like I haven’t had outside Europe. The “fondue bourguignonne” and the “cote a l’os” we had after we’re just fantastic. Cooking to perfection, sauces very tasty and I would just say a great place to go.

Real professionals from the service to the announcement and suggestion board.
That place would definitely weight in the balance for my next trip to Thailand.

Long live la cote a l’os

Spotted this restaurant on trip advisor. Not too far from our hotel “prana”. Owners very welcoming. Beautiful food, good options. Steak seasoned well. kindly spotted our wine had corked and offered an alternative.

Thank you.

Visited this cozy french restaurant close to our hotel. The hostess / owner is very welcoming and makes sure to say hi and goodbye to all the guests. The servers are very friendly and talkative as well.

The meat is amazing! Really tasty and comes with plenty of sides.

Would definitely recommend this place

Found this restaurant by accident . We were just using the cross airport shorcut to Ghost Road and found it . Read the reviews and then booked via the website . What a fantastic place . Superb service , wonderful food , lovely venue and atmosphere. If this restaurant was at home in Cardiff it would be rated one of the best . Great cocktails to accompany our starters of duck rillettes and hot goat cheese salad , a carafe of wine with wagu rumpsteak and carre d’agneau - gratin dauphinois- papaya bake!! and spinach . Perfect. Thank you see you next year

Nice ambiance, friendly service incl. charming owner Valerie and a myriad of dining options! Finally it was snails from Burgundy and an exquisite fondue plus a nice bottle of wine for only 890 Baht which created a culinary trance.
