Royal Grill Room & Wine Cellar, Royal CliffSouth Pattaya
The dimly-lit, hushed atmosphere of the Royal Grill Room & Wine Cellar gives it an air of exclusivity and seriousness. This is a not a restaurant where food is eaten and beverages are drunk, but where tender steaks, lovingly-prepared, are enjoyed while fine wines from an extraordinary selection are savoured. It is the sort of place you would be embarrassed to order a beer with your well-done steak. Continuing the mentality of the hotel it is a part of, it is a place where quality is the paramount consideration. Read More...
