Listing the bars of Pattaya

The following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. Reviewers may be unreasonably harsh and bar owners may present a rosy picture of their bars...so don't take everything at face value...go and see for yourself.

 Review from Pattaya Talk May 2007: Fish & Chips

The more refined Pattaya visitor like moi prefers number 3 breakfast at Antons.

Selection of German hams and sausages. Lovely pile of crispy white rolls and mixed breads. Scrabbled egg with bacon chopped up inside, pickles and free flow coffee which is excellent.

120 baht and once you've eaten in once you'll be back.

Nightimes in there has a 180 baht buffet which is fantastic. All German food with nice sweets all included.

Beer bar and guesthouse

  Review by Malcolm, January 2013: Always a good selection of girls

I stayed at the Barracuda Bar, Naklua Road for my last 8 days. The rooms are good. Only downside is the music from the bar which can go on till 3am some nights. No good if you retire early.

A standard room is 700B. They do have a VIP room at 850B which has all new furniture and personal gold package True cable box.

The bar is always busy later in the afternoon and in the evening. Tony the UK owner and his Thai wife host parties regularly. Happy hour Singha 55B and 70B in the evening. Lady drinks are a very reasonable 95B. Always a good selection of girls there, most of them very pretty. I counted 16 girls on the Friday when there was a party on. They have stopped serving food but you can order from nearby restaurants.

  Review by Swanks, Sept 2006: Well done that man

Considering the latest owner of this long standing Brit and Aussie enclave has never had a bar before he's certainly getting something right! He seems to be showing the "I've been in this game for 20 years and know everything there is to know" type of Publicans that come here to start a bar, just how it should be done!

The staff are very welcoming and there are some really stunning lookers. They all seem 'at ease' with the management and there is every variation from chubby (MMM, says swanks) to one that easily could be on TV here, she's really that pretty!

The food menu offers both Farang and Thai food and I must admit, it seemed a bit on the expensive side!

One of the lads ordered a sandwich, cleared his plate, and had to go home early that night as he was too full to drink! The portions were just HUGE and he said it was that good he had to eat it all. We tried to help but he managed to keep us at bay with a fork, so serves him right in my opinion!

If I lived a bit nearer I would welcome this pub as my "Local" but there seemed enough people to fill the bar even though other bars on the road were empty!

"Well done that man" I say!

  Review November 2005: No Brew

I was rather suckered into this one thinking that I could partake in locally brewed Weisenbier. However the 'brau' or brewery part of the bar seemed to be down or defunct. There were a couple of imported bottles available but it was a pretty naff selection and was very pricy.

The aircon was deficient too which made for a pretty brief meal. A bit of a shame as the food was very good.

The inside restaurant is free of hostesses but in the front beer garden there is a small bar that is staffed by ladyboys

  Summer 2005:

Heiner and Lee run a clean and pleasant bar with low booze prices and about ten more or less appealing take-away girls. Beer, soft drinks and Thai whisky are reasonably priced with a 20 Baht supplement if bought as lady drinks. Thai and mainly German food is available (the Frikadellen are very tasty)  They had to change their venue as some of the shops north of the 711 on the corner of Soi Casa, Jomtien will be demolished soon to make way for yet another 4 rai, 32 storey mega-hotel.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Nov 2007: An Education

The restaurant was founded by former Minister of Health, Mechai Viravaidya, as a way to raise funds for his personally-funded birth control programs and AIDS education and awareness efforts in Thailand.

It really is very easy to write this restaurant review and not say a thing about the food. I could start with the resort instead: The lush tropical jungle, the manicured gardens, the whimsical and tongue-in-cheek anti-government signs posted around the grounds ("Don't steal, the government doesn't like competition"), the ponds and streams and fountains and pools, the private villas, oceanside bungalows, and wonderfuly decorated rooms (ranging from $75 to $180 per night for rooms, and up to $360 per night for suites)... it's simply fantastic.

The restaurant, which is reached by a long walk through the jungle grounds, is a monstrous, sprawling teakwood structure perched on — and continuing down — the hill overlooking the resort's private beach. It has 5 levels of covered and uncovered decking which in size makes this one of Pattaya's largest restaurants. However, with the decks built around the trees (so that it seems that not a single tree was cut down in the restaurant's construction). Not a single opportunity to impress, not a single detail has been missed in this restaurant. It is simply beautiful.

The food? It is fine. Quite good even. The menu is primarily mainstream Thai dishes, although there are most of the standby Western favorites for the less adventurous. The best part is that it's quite inexpensive: Most of the Thai entre้s are in the 200 baht ($6) range, with the larger and more top-shelf dishes (filet mignon, grilled seabass) in the 300-400 baht ($9-12) range. Soups, appetizers, sandwiches, and other light fare are in the 75-150 baht ($2-4) range.

It's really quite simple to sum up Cabbages & Condoms restaurant: If you have people visiting from out of town, if you want a quiet romantic dinner, or if you have a large party, then you should go to Cabbages & Condoms. It should be at the very top of every person's list for restaurants... for places... that every person should visit while in Pattaya.

  News Jan 2007: Fine Dining and an Inflated Bill

I decided to dine in one of those upmarket restaurants where they scam their customers by printing prices less VAT and not including the mandatory 10% service tip.

Cabbages and Condoms at the bottom of Pratamnak Hill (on Soi Asia) is a fine example. It looks great in a jungle setting complete with water vapour jets. The beach views make for a fine setting too.

I ordered my meal only to be politely told 5 minutes later that the kitchen had run out of my choice. No problems, I selected another dish. The alternative option was good and much enjoyed.

The falang food selection is a little limited, particularly when some of the combinations are somewhat unappealing. I quite fancied a lamb steak but didn't really want mashed potato with it.

Everything was fine until the inevitable check bin. The expensive bill had predictably been inflated by adding in both the unavailable dish and the replacement.

The mistake was quickly rectified and the cashier was also happy to waive the service charge in atonement.

Caddy Shack

2nd Road: Soi 17
(Near Eden hotel)

 Caddy Shack

Has moved further along the soi towards Theprassit. The old bar has now become May Bar Beer.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Nov 2007: British Place

It was a nice enough British place, with the same standard fare that you find at the other two dozen British pub-style eateries in Pattaya. Worth a visit if you're nearby.

Café des Amis

391/6 Soi 11 Thappraya Road

Open from 4:30pm

 Café des Amis

Restaurant with plenty of parking outside.

  Review from Pattaya Mail, August 2008: Impressed

To say the Dining Out Team was impressed would be an understatement. The ambience is wonderful, with a French provincial feel to it. There is even an old black and white photograph of a Caf้ des Amis either in Vientiane or Hanoi, as well as some old Parisian scenes.

The bar area is comfortable, you do not feel rushed, and you can even eat there if you wish. Inside the dining area it is more classical Thai, but the table settings are classical European.

The food was of a high standard, and certainly not overpriced. It was a most enjoyable evening, and Caf้ des Amis definitely does get a very high recommendation from both Madame and myself. Do try it, you will not be disappointed.

Casa Pascal

2nd Road (opposite Soi Post Office)

 Casa Pascal

Gourmet restaurant.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Aug 2007: Pattaya's Best Gourmet Restaurant

Located across Second Road from the old Shenanigans in the same back-from-the-street area as Ruen Thai restaurant, Casa Pascal is quite simply the best restaurant in Pattaya (price notwithstanding) in my opinion.

The decor is handsome, the wait staff is perfect, and every dish is a learning experience. Not a single opportunity for service is missed: You can even call 038-723-660 for Pascal's personal limousine service to come pick you up from wherever you are, and drop you off after your meal.

We chose to have the 2,900 baht ($87) "Gourmet Set Menu", which was a 7-plate meal, with unlimited beverages. (If you find the price a bit much, you can have the same meal for 1,450 baht ($44) without the all-you-can-drink option.) In London or New York, a meal like this would run into the hundreds-of-dollars range.

  Review by Jay, Oct 2006: Better Values

Cherry is owned and run by a Thai who worked and was well trained as a chef at Bruno's.

Prices much less than Bruno's; with an extensive menu of Italian, Western & Thai entrees. Ex. - Sirloin steak w/ baked potato, veggies, free (basic) salad bar and appetizers was 180-Bt..tender and quite good.

Cloth table covers and napkins, attentive but not obtrusive service. Nice food presentation. I hope more farangs learn of this place!! Aussie steaks 275-Bt/up. One of the better values in Pattaya!

Italian Restaurant new for 2007. Not seen any signs of life in so far in October but back towards end of November

  Review Aug 2007:

The restaurant is making a good start. The Italian owner is on hand to ensure that everything is as it should be.

The food is good quality and is real Italian (at least as far as a non-Italian can tell).

The pizza, pasta & meat courses were all good though perhaps my Thai dining partner was rather expecting a US style deep pan pizza.

The decor is good with plenty of art work but I did rather miss an aircon.

Main courses are around the 200 Baht mark

Chang still B35.

Only Fools and Horses DVD still going strong.

  Review from Pattaya Chat, Feb 2007: Value

I know it is not the classiest joint you can find, and his TV adverts probably put off as many people as they attract, but it was actually rather good and incredible value. He does an English breakfast at 60baht and one he charmingly calls the 'Fat Bastard' at 100baht. I had the Fat Bastard and it was very good. It came with tea and toast and butter and had everything: bacon, 2 sausages, 2 eggs, black pudding, fried bread, mushrooms, beans etc the lot. Incredible value at 100 baht. And quick service as well.

Looking at his prices Crazy Dave's must be one of the best value places in Pattaya. Certainly, worth a trip up the soi if you fancy farang food in the middle of the night.

Oh yes, 'Only Fools and Horses' was on the big screen TV whilst I was there.

  March 2006: Cheap Chang

Best thing about it is the atmosphere (feels like it's been there for 30 years, very comfortable) and the 35 baht Chang. Love the grilled ham & cheese.

  From advertising 2006: Crazy Fools

Only Fools & Horses and other comedy favourites on the big screen TV. Happy hour 3-8pm. Kloster & Heinekin 45 Baht.

Friendly ladies, good food, crazy prices and a free bowl of chilli on Sunday nights.

Elephant Bar

Pratamnak Road: Soi 4

 Elephant Bar

Restaurant & bar. Restricted to seasonal opening in 2009

 Review Nov 2008: Motorway Service Station Style

I am occasional visitor to Soi 4. My last intended visit was curtailed when my mate said it looks more like a motorway service station than a bar or Thai restaurant so we ended up in the more traditionally Thai Cabbages and Condoms next door.

The latest time I stayed for a couple of drinks. For the cost conscience the bar does a perfectly good draft beer for 45 Baht in a decent sized glass so no probs there.

But really the bar no longer looks or feels like a bar any more, just a rather large eaterie.

  Review May 2008: Restaurant Prices

The food has always been pretty good, never been the cheapest, but decent enough quality and large portions and again my Beef hot pot didn't let me down, no complaints what so ever with the food.

Now the drink prices. They must have doubled the prices, a can of coke 60 baht and a bottle of Singha now selling at 95 baht. Doesn't even have air con.

  News Jan 2008: Restaurant Expansion

The bar area is now completely restaurant seating. Unfortunately it looks a little like motorway service area seating. There is a live band though, to up the stakes.

  News Aug 2007: More Works

The builders are in. The bar is being extended down one side. It looks like an auditorium like affair is being built in the bar area at the back

  News July 2006: Elephant A-GoGo

The bar has installed facilities for GoGo dancing. Reportedly open already but I haven't seen any reviews yet.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Jan 2008: Best Fine Dining Value

Flamboyant in Jomtien is still the best fine dining value... probably in all of Thailand. Yes, I'm sure Flamboyant is cutting corners, or skimping on ingredients, or something to keep prices down... but the important part is that you can't tell. In Casa Pascal, you may pay through the nose for your food, but you're eating truffles in champagne sauce.

A stylish, classy renovation. The ebullient proprietor, Guido Vietri has totally re-vamped the previous premises of Habitu and created a snazzy, modern Italian restaurant with a most pleasing ambiance and sophisticated designer touches.

The new Gian’s hits the spot in so many ways and is sure to please Pattaya’s foodies. It combines traditional, healthy Italian cuisine with an agreeable modern approach in an elegant and contemporary interior but with a laid-back vibe.

  Review from Dave, May 2009: Well Positioned

Good well priced food at this bar and very well positioned for checking out the talent at other bars as well as getting recon from the expats and regulars that drink there.

Also a good bar to go to if you want to see any sporting events.

Good place to chill out if you aren't in the mood for a bar girl.

  Review from Swanks, August 2006: Tarred with a New Brush

The lightning struck tower of change has hit the Jack Tar big time! The place is still inhabited by the same bawdy and good natured ex-pat crowd with the odd tourist who thinks he has slipped in unnoticed, but gone are the poisonous grim meanies and especially the chief viper from the kitchen.

Not only was my visit well worth it for the food, but I got a beaming smile , very friendly, very welcoming and attentive service from some quite charming waiting and bar staff. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them!

I thought I'd gone in the wrong bar by mistake! Well worth a visit now! Don't forget its not a late night place though, more for an afternoon of spirited debate , if you take my drift!

  Review from Swanks, April 2006: Service with a Scowl

This always was a "Beer n Sport" bar and was previously very welcoming.

Since the ousting of Scrumpy George by the bar girl mafia there, it really has been the tail wagging the dog! George's management style might have been a bit "Faulty Towers" ,but he managed to keep a lid on what started as a bad attitude in the kitchen,and then spread to the rest of the staff like clap at Loy Krathong. Now it really has took hold and even the new Thai manager seem to have mastered the lip curl (as used on social inferiors by Thais) . This is issued on every possible occasion now and usually is accompanied by "Knowing looks" between staff members. This attitude problem has been mentioned to me by several of the former customers without my saying anything first so it cant be just my imagination.

Beer still cheep and the food is possibly the best, for the price, in Pattaya. Just don't expect service with a smile.

Restaurant and Irish pub without hostesses

  Review from Ian, November 2011: Reserved

I have been in this bar twice.

The first time I went there was reserved signs on the bar and tables beside the bar where no one was sitting. I bought a drink and was told by the bar staff I would need to leave the bar area as the seats were all reserved. I said I would sit at the bar and move when the people who reserved the seats arrived. I was told this was not allowed and had to sit myself away from the bar area. Drank my drink and said I would not be back.

Went again last night about a year after the first time to see if things have changed.

What do you think? Exactly the same. Again the staff informed me I could not sit at the reserved seats even though no one was sitting at them.

Will not be back again.

  Review from Pattaya Chat, March 2005: Good Track Record

Very nicely fitted out but like has already been said it is in the middle of nowhere but that can be a good thing if you want a quiet drink with a few friends away from the madness and there is plenty of space for parking in the pub car park. The couple of times I've been in the place it was pretty empty which is a shame really as it could be a good boozer if it can get enough custom.

The manager used to own Jools in Bkk about 10 years ago and also the TQ2 as well as managing Delaneys/Shenanigans and is a nice guy.

Great weekend carvery and wonderful staff. 50 Baht for a coke, 30 Baht for water

  Review from Pattaya Chat, March 2005: Pea and Sham Soup!

Was one of the Manager's first customers when he had Jools in Bangkok where portions were super-size, especially the Pea and Ham soup. Therefore when I tried Jamesons a while back for lunch and saw the aforementioned soup on the menu I decided that past experience would prevail. Ordered Pea and Ham Soup and Roast Beef sandwich.

Soup arrived, a smattering of green sludge was deposited on the bottom of the bowl. indeed not enough liquid to drown the proverbial fly! The sandwich arrived, two miniscule pieces of bread buried under a mass of rabbit fodder, specifically requested NOT to be supplied! Somewhere there were two tiny slivers of meat, and I do mean tiny!

The manager was called for who just laughed in my face as I explained politely my dissatisfaction. Needless to say never been back.

The food in the restaurant is good and you can eat at the bar if you wish. They have a good barbeque on Saturday evenings.

The deco and atmosphere was fantastic. A real classy feel to the place. A pre-dinner cocktail was 415 Baht (menu price 350 Baht + 10% service and 7% tax).

Starters from 415 Baht
Steaks starting at 1750 Baht (+ vegetable side orders at 110 Baht each)

The meal was very good, but no better than the Mata Hari, Posidon or Queens all within a small distance of this Manhattans.

  Review from Thai Visa, Dec 2006: US Prices

I've had nothing but good reports from my friends who have dined here. It's been my experience that quality steakhouse restaurants are not available in Pattaya and that includes the ones mentioned above. My friends report that some of the side a la carte dishes are nothing special and can be avoided if you want to cut-corners on the tab.

The prices are equivalent to a good quality steakhouse here in the U.S. (not that bad considering cost to import quality beef).

  Review by DavidT, Dec 2009: Seeking New Owners

The New Inn on Soi Khao Talo is up for sale or reant (sic) again according to a poster outside.

No surprises as it's hardly in a tourist area, food is very expensive and of only moderate quality and there are screaming kids running amok in the dining area. Seems to lack governance.

  Review by DavidT, June 2008: Inflated Prices

The New Inn reopened a while ago with a new management. They seem to be spending a lot of Baht on publicity and "special offers".

The friendly and excellent Thai lady cook is still there, but today will be my last visit of many past. A small Tiger and orange juice, take-away sausage and mash, a pie and a soup left me with 400 Baht from a big brown and white note. That's 150 Baht (25%) more than 3 months ago. Like many expats, my income has not increased at all these last three months so how can I pay such prices?

The New Inn will surely founder (as are many other restaurants presently) for want of a policy that is appropriate to the current market situation. Good, cheap food and drink will keep people coming and smaller margins are then multiplied by more covers. The restaurant will be popular, have a good atmosphere and customers will return.

I can eat three sausages, mash potato, peas and gravy in the comfort of my own home for 95 Baht. Why would I pay 200 Baht at the New Inn or anywhere for that matter?

  Review by DavidT, Sept 2006: Good Grub

Just some early impressions. It's clean, well organised and olde englysh style.

Three waitresses or so and a free pool table. Around 8 dining tables, 4 TVs and some comfortable furniture. Friendly service.

What makes this place worth a visit is the grub. Extensive and interesting English and Thai menu - takeaways and telephone orders are no problem. Roasts available every day. Reasonable prices and the food is really excellent.

My visits were around a quiet 4 PM so I don't know what happens after that.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Aug 2007:  High Quality British Food

Prices for food were reasonable, and the dining room was clean and bright with new furniture and pleasant-enough decor. The staff seemed generally competent and the service was error-free. Everything was more than acceptable for an establishment that isn't focused exclusively on food.

Overall, Ricky's on Soi Buakhow is a nice little restaurant serving reasonably-priced, high quality British food. Definitely worth a visit for a middle-of-the-road budget combined with a good appetite.

Nordic Garden Restaurant

Pratamnak Road: Soi 4

 Nordic Garden Restaurant

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Dec 2007:

A lovely little courtyard open-air restaurant with pools, waterfalls, trees, plants, live music, and a Friday-night, all-you-can-eat steak plus food buffet for 300 baht.  On nights other than Friday, they serve a regular menu. The steak was simply great... nice and tender.

There really isn't more to the restaurant or the meal than that; but what else do you need? For 300 baht, you can gorge yourself on steak which at other restaurants would cost you 2 or 3 times as much, if not more.

If you're not a fan of steak, you have a very nice buffet served in a very nice setting. It's nothing overly special, but then again when you think about it: It is.

  Review from materialsman, July 2009: Hassle Free?

Palmer's is reasonably hassle free, at least from the ladies, but it is a sign of the economic times that the watch vendors et al, are getting pretty consistent in their sales pitches, and they do not appear to be discouraged by the simple 'miaow khrap' anymore, more difficult to shake off than a bogey stuck to your middle finger!

  Review from Thaigers, Jan 2009: Reasonable English Food

Long lasting bar run by an English guy who used to be a cook in the armed forces.

A few girls, some of whom go as they say, and some reasonable English food and decent drinks prices. Draught is 55 baht a glass. A lot of older guys hang out there and he gets a lot of repeat business.

We had the standard fish-and-chips dinner in Palmers for 150 baht and it was excellent, proving great value for the price.

  March 2006: Nice

There's a nice bar opposite Crystal-A-GoGo. Usually about 8 girls work there.

Restaurant in a luxurious jungle hut setting 

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, April 2007: Sitting on the Foor

One of Pattaya's fanciest, prettiest, and oldest restaurants (founded 1984)

The restaurant compound is built out of a gorgeous old teakwood Thai house. The decor was great, the music was great.

There are 2 dining rooms: one where you sit in chairs; and one where you sit on the floor.

Predictably high prices of course, about 2.5 times those in more straightforward restaurants.

So would I recommend the place? Sure... just as long as you know what the price is going to be, and that what is defined as the best Thai food in Pattaya is, to my palate at least, not too much different from restaurants that cost half as much. But, it is a nice place to spend an evening with friends or as a couple, and the Thai girls love it. (Just don't let them see the bill at the end of the night.)

 Review from Thai Visa Dec 2008: Fish & Chips

I like it a lot but it is 50/50 sometimes good, sometimes not, by good I mean the fish and chips cooked nicely, more fish than batter, not too greasy, the tartar sauce is always lovely. I would settle for the Pig but am annoyed about how unpredictable they are.

 Review from Pattaya Talk May 2007: Fish & Chips

The best falang food in Pattaya. Fish, chips and mushy pea's being my number 1. Enough said.

 Review April 2007: Unwelcoming

The restaurant was busy, not full. The welcome girl suggested a crappy table by the door and I suggested that I would prefer somewhere else. She decided the restaurant was full and showed me to the door. Never again.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets March 2006: Refreshing Pint

I love to start the day here where I can be assured of a nice refreshing pint.

The pub is very comfortable, and I like to sit by the window, and do a spot of people-watching, or sit near a TV screen and watch a few music videos or read the sport in the Bangkok Post.

The food in my experience, is always good . Full English breakfast , highly recommended. While most Farangs seem to order Fish and Chips, steak and so on, I've enjoyed many great Thai meals here , Green Chicken Curry, Stir fry Thai noodle with Pork, all good stuff, fresh, tasty, and cheap.

Girls (staff) wear cute little blue dresses too, nice and short!

A pint of Guinness is 160 Baht

  November 2005: Comfortable

Pig N Whistle is good, they have comfortable seats and a nice decor.

Noted for week in week out reliability. Around Bt189 for beef or pork and another Bt100 or so for lamb. Note that it's not carvery

The Casa Pascal management have improved on what was already well known to lovers of good food as an excellent restaurant and have now positioned Poseidon as a true gourmet’s delight. Amazingly at reasonable prices (including VAT) for such top quality fare!

  Review April 2007: Bar Watching

I did pop by once before when I thought it would be good to watch the last England vs Australia test match in an 'a traditional English pub'. I popped out quick quick when they were showing American tennis! This leads me to doubt that there is any actual English connection to this bar.

Anyway I eventually visited again (TVs were off this time).

The bar is pleasantly decorated and features rows of tankards and glasses suspended from the ceiling.

The tables overlooking the short time bars are popular, presumably people like to feed one type of hunger whilst considering their options over the other type of hunger.

The range of farang beers was good but I stuck with draft tiger at 60 Baht (the bottled option was 70 Baht).

Newspapers are available for the short while it takes to knock up the food. The menu was extensive and the food was good but not exceptional. They probably take similar high quality boil in the bag/microwave catering supplies as other fine farang food restaurants in Pattaya.

Not many customers were lingering after eating though, there are better things to do in Soi 6

  From Queen Victoria Inn

A traditional English pub in the heart of Soi 6 where you can have a drink or traditional English cooking with no hassle. Live sport on large screen TV on Saturday and Sunday.

Note that this is not a short time bar as per the majority of those in Soi 6

Pub & restaurant with no hostesses

  Review from Pattaya Today, April 2007:

Seating is comfortable and cosy in the forefront with a dining room to the left and a huge bar at the rear where drinkers can sit and watch the big-screen TV.

The Red Lion has a leisurely opening at 11.00 am when the full range of the pub’s breakfasts and morning snack foods can be enjoyed. The big breakfast comes with unlimited tea or coffee and doubles up on everything, i.e sausages, bacon, eggs, toast, masses of baked beans, all the works. It costs B.150 for a Fred Flintstone start to the day with a smaller one for Wilma at B.110. 

Lots of traditional English options on the menu including: sausages & mash, fish ‘n chips, scampi, and home-made fish cakes, chicken tikka masala. There’s a special kid’s menu evoking childhood memories with offerings of fish fingers, chicken nuggets or sausages with chips and beans to please the juniors. The Thai menu is huge presenting 86 dishes.

  Review from jj, May 2006: Restaurant & Pub

Not long after opening, I asked the owner (Adrian) if it was a bar that served food or a restaurant that served alcohol.

He said he had aimed for the former but seemed to have achieved the latter.

Food was quite good for a while then a change of cooks and an increase in prices ran him off my list of restaurants, ie portions and taste not up to the price.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: No Girlies

About 200 yards after Pattaya Hill Village, on left hand side. large English type bar. inside and outside dinner areas. Pool table. No girlies. popular with Brits who live in the Moobans around it. Food quite expensive for the location.

I have eaten here many times during my last visit to Pattaya.

They have both European and Thai dishes on the menu. The food is really good and comes in big portions. ( especially the European dishes )

The prices are very OK. For instance 80 Baht for 2 eggs on toast with a cup of tea or 220 Baht for an enormous sweet and sour deep fried fish.

Inside there is big TV screen.

They also have rooms that are 500 Baht for the standard and 700 Baht for the delux room.

I loved to sit outside and watch the traffic passing by on Soi Diana inn. Will certainly eat again here next time

  Review from Lindsay, June 2008: Off Day

We went there for lunch last year 2007. The waitress was rude to my wife, the pork roast I could have repaired my shoes with the rubbish and we were the only customers there at the time and I’m not surprised if what we were served up with is the norm.

Maybe it was our turn to have their bad experience or it was an off day but the place isn’t cheap. I’m in the industry and I don’t bother to complain, I just don’t go back however after having great meals at Secrets and the French restaurant towards the end of Walking Street Le Notte, and Sailors Bar in Soi 8 what a disappointment.

Rosie’s promotes themselves as a traditional English, Continental and Thai food establishment so maybe they are not training their staff to cover such a range of fare. Or as I said maybe it was an off day.

I had the fish & chips special and it was very good, at least for us American guys.

  Review by Materialsman, October 2009: Cheers Style Bar

I quite like Secrets as a concept, and I am a regular contributor to their website Forum, though I do consider they charge like a wounded rhinoceros for my favoured bottled Heineken, thus forcing me to drink the draft beer Tiger on my visits here, I don't have a problem paying outrageous prices for a bottled beer in a Go-Go, where there is acres of naked flesh on display, but I feel that in a Coyote style Bar, the pricing in Club Blu or the Honeypot is more to my liking.

Secrets is what it is, a sort of Cheers style Bar where everyone knows your name and was busy as always, a very successful business concept, perhaps partly, but not singularly due to the ubiquitous and gregarious Manager Larry, though last night I felt the Mamasan was a bit hasty in trying to thrust a girl at me for company, actually before I had even got my first beer, that may be fine for a shy newbie, but I like to take my time and actually select a cutie to sit with me, it's a minor irritation, but I guess it worked, as I felt obliged to buy a lady drink and swap idle where you come from,' 'what's your name' style crap until I could beat a retreat.

  Info Dec 2008: Prices

Barfines for hostesses are 450 Baht. 1000 Baht for dancers before midnight (including afternoons until 3pm) and 600 Baht after midnight. Draft Tiger is 60 Baht

  Review from Pattaya-Live, March 2008: Spanking

Service was good, there were a shit load of girlies and a good load of them hot, the pizza we ordered was spanking, and the ale was cold.

  Review April 2007: Lonely (but Good Food)

The general Pattaya rule is that bars employ hostesses but restaurants generally avoid them.

I thought it would be nice to have meal with company rather than the usual eating alone so I stopped by Secrets as one of the few bars that combine girls with food (and aircon)

Unfortunately the way that Secrets hook up the girls with customers is pretty naff and it wasn't to be. The girls were lined up just inside the door and they were a pretty mixed bunch. A couple of oldies were the first to catch my eye in the short time that you to make a choice. My body language sent out distress signals to alert the two oldies that they shouldn't bother trying their luck. Unfortunately the whole pack of girls caught the same distress signals and the whole lot ignored me for the entire visit.

Once inside and having time to survey the scene it seems that many customers were sitting there lonely and that the girls would either ignore them all or else flock around a few big spending, big character types that were probably regulars. They clearly were enjoying the attention so there are surely a few good reviews deserved by the bar.

Still I pressed on with the food order and the service was prompt and efficient.

The meal was very good and the chef had made a fine effort to put a little style and originality into basic pub food.

Just a shame that no hostesses so much as glanced in my direction.

  Info Dec 2006: Prices

Barfines for hostesses are 400 Baht. 1000 Baht for dancers before midnight and 600 Baht after midnight.

  Review by jj, Dec 2006: Keep it a SECRET

The only ones likely to be spread a word of mouth ad for Secrets are the investors. This place is best kept a secret from seasoned punters.

We found ourselves on Walking Street a bit before the angel-hour of 8PM. The first group of hello-girls we encountered south of Pattaya Tai were touting Secrets . They promised "sexy girls". Being easily swayed, we fell for the ploy.

Secrets is one of those beautifully appointed bars that cost the investors a large fortune to outfit. It's attraction stops there. At that early hour, there were perhaps 20-25 ladies in residence. For the most part they were completely ignoring the 3-5 punters present. They were arranged in gaggles of 4-6, deeply engaged in conversation among themselves; one group surrounding a video game machine near the side door. Everything the previous reviewers said about this place: seating, music, oldies and fatties is completely true. Three large flat-screen TVs were showing a concert video -- with the sound off. The DJ was playing the standard CD that the Thai government seemingly issues with every liquor license. Drink prices were going rate except for something called "Secrets Cocktails" of unspecified ingredients for 280 baht!

Likely the investors will pepper sites like this with rave reviews in hopes of recouping their funds. With the competition on Walking Street alone, I give this place a year at most before they pull the plug.

  Review Sept 2006: Suay

The bar is immediately attractive. It features a central bar with comfortable chairs at the bar. There are bays of couch seating around the back. Lighting and decoration is spot on.

There are dancing poles with girls in disco wear.

Bottled Tiger Beer was very reasonable at 50 Baht. San Miguel, spirits and lady drinks are 95 Baht

I didn't stay long though as the hostess who attached herself to me was an oldie. In fact the girls on the prowl in my vicinity weren't a very attractive bunch but I did spot a couple of pretty girls around the other side of the bar.

  Review from Malcolm January 2010: Pricey Drinks

110 Baht for a bottle of Singha. 260 Baht for draught Kilkenny. (thats £5.20 in real money). No Irish music.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Feb 2008: Pricey Drinks

Nice Bar But there prices are too high for a pub had a few drinks yesterday in This new Shenanigans in Pattaya there Vodka for a shot was 160 Baht without a mixer and red wine was 180 Baht a glass.

It's way over the top. The wine, by the bottle, is also expensive and not very good. The food is pricey for very basic pub grub. Shame they moved as the old venue had considerably more character than this modern mausoleum.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Nov 2007: Pretty Place

The new space is really quite nice, with tons of wood finish, a tiled floor, and very high quality furnishings. Although any connection to Ireland and the atmosphere of an Irish pub is completely gone, it is a pretty place. There is also outdoor seating, located out in front of the restaurant.

The interior of Shenanigans is very nice but not particularly Irish. I really didn't even look at the menu, except to get an idea of the prices: It seemed that the majority of dishes were in the 300-350 baht range... a bit pricey, but for an upscale non-fancy place like this, it's about average.

Instead, I went for the Friday-night special: All you can eat bar-be-que ribs for 295 baht... which is really a pretty good deal. The ribs were great... I also had a pint of Kilkenny for 220 baht.

The total bill for 5 people came to 2700 baht, which is about average for Pattaya upscale tourist-focused locations like this. I really wouldn't recommend Shenanigans over a more homely place like the Pig & Whistle on Soi 7, or The Queen Vic on Soi 6... but it's a nice enough place to take out-of-towners for dinner before starting a night out in Pattaya.

  Review Summer 2005: Up Market

It does some excellent traditional meals although these are on the pricy side for Pattaya. Sunday lunch accompanied by sport on TV seems well popular.

Perhaps a little bit of an up market crowd though. The bar always seems to feature in the company parties that provide posed pictures of socialites in the local press.

  Review from Pattaya Chat, June 2006: Well Run Gaff

Been in there a couple of times, seems like a well run gaff and the kao pad gai I had was certainly very nice.

Was in there last night having a few beers with a couple of friends and the owner and felt quite at home, they have San Miguel light which I've never had before but seemed like a decent enough drop of booze and certainly set me on the way. Also have draught Bass.

There is ample parking behind the complex, just turn off 2nd Road and drive straight though past Tropical berts on your right and you'll se the car park.

  Thanks to John & Stickman, February 2006:

The bar is bigger, has 4 TVs, high speed internet for customers and the food is even better than before with the acquisition of a new chef, Josh ex Shenanigans and Queen Vic. The beer is cheaper than most beer bars. A good place to chill out away from the chaos that is much of Pattaya.

 Wi's Restaurant

Restaurant. Wi’s is located on the former premises of Cherry’s Restaurant with the Chef and sous-Chef remaining to form this new venture.

  Review from Pattaya Today, Sept 2008: Gun Club

Wi’s restaurant has adopted the philosophy of “enjoyable food at enjoyable prices”. The restaurant only opened its doors two months ago but already they have a loyal following of regulars who appreciate their three “p’s” of performance, i.e. professionalism, pricing and presentation.

A big airy terrace for al fresco dining leads into a relaxed air-conditioned area. The menu is a very nice collection of predominately European cuisine (with Swiss over-tones) and a good selection of Thai favourites.

We gave Wi’s a big tick. Good quality produce at affordable prices, cooked with tip top professionalism and served in a relaxed and laid-back ambiance hits the spot in anyone’s book. This is the sort of local gem that will become a firm favourite and have its regulars returning again and again.

A great place to watch the Premiership football at the weekend They have six different screens each showing a different game so your likely to catch your team. The food wasn’t great though.

  Review August 2007: Your Typical Pub

Strange for a themed pub but the restaurant appeared a little formulaic. There are several 'English' pubs in Pattaya, none of them offer hostesses for a chat with your meal, all expect you to be interested in the sport on TV and all seem to buy their meals from the same microwave/Boil in the bag catering suppliers.

Still the service was good, the meals were inexpensive, they were perfectly good quality and had good sized portions.

Now if only I could find an 'English' pub that would supply a pretty dinner companion.

Notes


Pattaya bars most likely to be listed are those that occupy a permanent looking standalone building. Beer bars in complexes will not be listed unless mentioned in dispatches. Gay/Thai/Karaoke bars are not listed due to a lack of expertise in those areas. Gogo bars are listed on a separate page. I have added food reviews but this is not a comprehensive service. I will only list eateries where people have submitted comments

The following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. Reviewers may be unreasonably harsh and bar owners may present a rosy picture of their bars...so don't take everything at face value...go and see for yourself. Click on the street name to obtain a map of the bar area.

And a couple of words of warning:

  • In short time rooms...keep an eye on your wallet to ensure that it stays with you long time.

  • To those with Thai wives, be aware of the motor cycle taxi network used to keep tabs on errant husbands.

If anyone would like to add a review or information please email Dave at webmaster@pattayagogos.com
