Cocotte Bangkok Farm Roast & Winery is a restaurant that combines a passion for local, seasonal, organic produce with the lively buzz of a French bistro. The barbecued steaks, rotisserie chickens and fresh salads taste delicious and are sourced from sustainable farms within Thailand (well, everything except the steak). It is as close to farm-to-table dining in Bangkok as you’re likely to get and it’s proving incredibly popular! Cocotte Bangkok is packed most nights of the week. The vibe is fun and energetic, with waitresses coming and going while the row of chefs are busy in the open kitchen. There’s also an open deli with artisanal cheese and cured meats laid out for you to make up your own platter.

Cocotte Bangkok has several signature dishes, among them their rotisserie chicken (490 baht for a half or 790 baht for a whole), which is sourced from farms around Bangkok and is cooked to perfection until juicy and flavoursome – honestly, it’s the best chicken we have ever tried. As well as organic chicken, you can also feast on other items from the grill such as the lamb shank confit (1,490 baht) which is roasted for 24 hours until the succulent meat is falling off the bone. All the steaks are cooked on a charcoal barbeque and the smell of the hefty tomahawk steaks periodically waft through the restaurant. If you come as a large group, the wagyu Tomahawk makes a real impression, but tenderloin, ribeye and rump cuts are also available (1,800 – 1,260 baht).
To accompany the grilled meats, you can enjoy classic sides such as mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and locally grown and crunchy grilled asparagus. There is also a selection of delicious salads, such as the signature Cocotte Salad (310 baht) that features Royal Farm Green Salad as well as Parma ham and cherry tomatoes topped with a soft boiled duck egg.
It’s unfair to label Coccotte as just a steakhouse because they have some playful culinary dishes on the menu, such as their range pastas – very popular at lunchtimes – and their foie gras lollipops, which are rolled in caramelized walnuts and come with two shavings of apple for a luscious mouthful of flavour and texture (540 baht). There’s several dishes for vegetarians too, making Cocotte Bangkok a great restaurant for large groups.
When it comes to the ‘winery’ part of the Cocotte Bangkok operation, patrons won’t be disappointed by the huge range of wines on offer here. These include picks from all over the world, including Chile, Australia, France, Italy, New Zealand, and Spain, and glasses start at around 190 baht. There are several bottles around the 1,000-baht mark.
With large groups occupying the high tables, an outside section for enjoying warm evenings, couples tucked away on the smaller tables, all against the constant backdrop of the kitchen, it’s clear the French concept of laissez-faire is alive and well here: make yourself comfortable and enjoy some very high level, yet homely, cuisine.
