I've been to this place at least 10 times and will keep coming back as long as they make their signature 5 hour lamb(you don't need to wait for it that long). The food is just simply amazing . The pan fried gras, the 5hour lamb, the cheese plate, mustard rabbit, hazelnut ice cream . Everything!! Highly highly recommend it.

The first thing to mention is that it is hard to find, tucked away on an unmade road you could drive or walk past it without even being aware that it's there! However it is worth the effort and when you enter the restaurant, you find yourself in a warm and relaxing atmosphere that you seldom encounter nowadays. I always... More

I have been here 4 times over 3 years. The food is truly amazing, French at the heart. So much of passion from the owner, Josef. The service is good, but nothing to brag about. I try many dishes over the years, just perfect in any way. Fresh ingredients, deep flavors and lot of love. Highly recommended.

Homie French Dinner. Good Price! They use Australian beef for their beef dishes. Quality is very good. The bread served are homemade. The Amuse Bouche and complimentary Madeline and Rum Sponge Cake were wonderful.

This was probably my fifth visit to Au Bon Coin and again it could not be faulted. I had asparagus mousseline followed by Roast Filet of Beef with Au Gratin Potatoes. The white asparagus was excellent and the Roast Beef was as expected, outstanding. I had a creme brulee followed by an espresso. We had a carafe of red wine.... More

We have been dining at Au Bon Coin for some years. I have tried to review the place from the perspective of a fine dining restaurant in Pattaya and a venue of French cuisine. Get there: the owner is targeting locals not tourists, hence it is not signalled. Usually you can not get a table without a booking. Make sure... More

Our annual trip to Thailand would not the same without a couple of evenings at ABC. The menu is quite familiar year to year but the quality is always guaranteed. Went last week and going again this Friday - have tried Chez Yvette in between but for the moment it just does not compare and as for Cafe des Amis... More

This is a lovely restaurant, tucked away in Pratumnak. The food here is truly delicious. Portion size is adequate. 50cl of merlot 790 baht. Total bill for 2 starter 2 mains came to 3210 baht. Bathroom is clean too. Restaurant is clean though the tatty tablecloth was scruffy. Good experience though.

Thank Gay B
