Top 10 Most Popular Pattaya Restaurants Listed on Tripadvisor

Although we go on holiday to see new places and meet new people, one of the significant parts of a vacation is eating out every night. Thailand, and particularly Pattaya, has a top-notch dining scene that you should really need to know more about 🧔

However, if you watch Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares, between all the expletives, blue plasters, salmonella, and verbal abuse, there is one thing that the irate chef has taught us… always make sure you choose Pattaya restaurants that come highly recommended by someone who knows what they are talking about. In my case, I will follow the recommendations of our very own Hungry Bear. Because I love dining out and have lived across many locations in Thailand over the past 12 years, I have tried some of the finest eateries in the Kingdom. Does that make me an expert? Is it a pig’s posterior pork? Absolutely love it!🥇

Please take your time to see my guide to dining out in Pattaya, which offers great advice about the city’s culinary scene and the top 10 most popular Pattaya restaurants that Tripadvisor recommends. Yes, collectively, you do know more than me! 🧔 

 

 

Pattaya Restaurants Scene

Did you know that Pattaya has more top-notch international-style restaurants than any other city in Thailand except for Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (Bangkok)? Did I say restaurants? I meant brothels! Wait…. No… I did mean restaurants, after all. That was for another article. Now we can be sure which meat and veg we are talking about 🧔

Doesn’t it matter what kind of food you want to try in Pattaya because the city has it? From Mongolian BBQs and fabulous fine-dining eateries to down-to-earth British restaurants, French and gutsy Italian cuisine, endangered species, and much more, there are few cuisine types you can’t find in Pattaya, from quaint little Thai shack restaurants where you can find chicken fried rice for 35 THB to glittering culinary masterpiece style eateries where Fin Clair Oysters are served on a silver platter by dusky maidens for 2,000 THB, and everything in between.

The Pattaya restaurant scene has something for everyone… even for vegetarians! Mad, right?

 

 

Using Tripadvisor to Find the Most Popular Pattaya Restaurants

Although I would usually expect that you take my advice as gospel with any deviation from my words resulting in lengthy jail terms, the Junta does not have a ‘restaurant correctional’ facility as we speak, so you should be okay!

The best way to find top-notch Pattaya restaurants that guarantee a night of gastronomic excellence is to go with the old, tried and tested search formula on Tripadvisor. This phenomenal review platform has changed how we find things and, in most cases, is a precise and informative guide to everything. However, I have tried all the best restaurants in Pattaya first-hand.

Here are the top 10 popular Pattaya restaurants on Tripadvisor, with commentary from me because you always need an intelligent arse to make wisecracks along the way 🏅

 

#10 Cafe des Amis

Known as the Holy Grail of restaurants in Pattaya, Cafe des Amis is a true culinary giant in the city. Serving fine-dining cuisine with phenomenal attention to detail, with a fantastic assortment of wines from across the world, dozens of different types of gin, and some of the most awe-inspiring and authentic Japanese Wagyu steaks that literally melt in the mouth.

When you want a dining experience for the ages in Pattaya City, no one can match this sublime eatery, located behind Thappraya Road in Jomtien, in a stylish and elegant atmosphere. The combo of food and drinks makes it a tenth of our top 10 most popular Pattaya restaurants 🏅
