-Tartar was ok. -Nice paté. -Bread was fresh and warm. -Goulash was a bit salty. But for the price I expected a higher quality.

Alan invites you to one of the most romantic and peaceful restaurants in Phuket. Come and enjoy fine French and Thai cuisine in our restaurant in the heart of Rawai beach.
If you are in need of inspiration, Alan will always provide you with some of his own suggestions written on the blackboard. Thai food is also part of the menu and is well prepared by the Thai Chef. So, whatever the dining experience you are looking for, be sure you can find it at the Cafe Java located at the heart of Rawai in Phuket.
