    Where and What to Eat in Jomtien Beach

    Jomtien Beach restaurants are mostly no-frills expatriate-run restaurants and bars, with budget Thai dishes being joined on the menu by European cuisine - particularly British, German and Russian. Some of the best food is to be had on the beach, while lazing on the tightly-packed deck chairs under a canopy of umbrellas. Vendors bring first-rate Thai snacks right to your picnic table, which are invariably cheap and delicious and come with the best sea view in the area.

    Further north, along Thappraya Road (which connects Jomtien Beach to Phratamnak and South Pattaya), are some of the finest restaurants in Jomtien Beach, if not the whole city, where the cuisine includes offerings from France, Switzerland, India, Italy, China, Holland, Mexico and others.

Cabbages and Condoms (Pattaya) is a restaurant as unique and memorable as its name: the secluded beachfront location is stunning, the menu is a comprehensive mix of Western and Thai dishes, and the social project is inspiring and irreverent. Set on an open-air deck, the first thing you notice is the great view of the open ocean that is perfect for lunch, dinner, or even a sunset cocktail. The second thing is the thousands of condoms used as decoration throughout the restaurant, especially the three mannequins covered head-to-toe in rubber standing in the doorway. A significant component of the restaurant is the promotion of HIV awareness and prevention in Thailand, but it’s done in a fun and entertaining way, suitable for the whole family and the food tastes great.

With its open-air setting, beachfront location and fantastic view out to sea and the nearby Koh Larn, it would be well worth visiting Infiniti Restaurant just for the atmosphere. However, with stone-baked, wood-fired pizzas; sashimi-grade tuna tartar, Norwegian salmon, Australian lamb chops and other international delights including fusions of different cuisines – as well as the quality and service one would naturally expect of a five-star hotel brand – the Sheraton Pattaya Resort’s flagship restaurant well deserves to be named amongst the best restaurants in Jomtien Beach.

Kit Seafood Restaurant

An open-air restaurant which is only separated from the sand by Jomtien Beach Road, Kit Seafood has a real beach barbecue feel to it.

Mata Hari

With its elegant dining room and haute cuisine dishes, Mata Hari is amongst the most refined boutique restaurants in Jomtien. Although many of the dishes are of Dutch origin – such as the green pea soup, beef stew, and milk-fed veal – other influences include Italian and French cuisine and ingredients such as spinach and ricotta ravioli and homemade Terrine de Foie Gras. There is also an excellent selection of Thai dishes available, including stir-fried pork with asparagus and straw mushrooms, chicken coconut soup with white field mushrooms and lemongrass, and crab meat curry.

New Nordic Steaks & Grill is the fine dining outlet of the namesake hotel complex on Soi 4 off Phratamnak Road in Pattaya.

News Steak & Grill

News Steak & Grill aims to mimic the atmosphere of the city it is located in. It has a relaxed, international feel to it where anyone can feel at home. While the cuisine is certainly international, the Swedish head chef does not allow anyone to relax their standards when it comes to ingredients and preparation. The eponymous grill uses the finest imported steaks with sauces including béarnaise, cognac-flavoured black pepper, and duck liver. The menu also includes such diverse highlights as Hungarian Goulash soup, Swedish meatballs, Cordon Blue and Wiener schnitzel.

  • Opening Hours: 11:00 – 02:00

Pattaya Seafood is one of the many very Thai-style eateries in the city, but one which makes the experience all the more enoyable for those not fluent in the local language. Combining great fresh seafood with friendly bilingual staff, this Thepprasit Road restaurant offers a genuine taste of Thailand. 'Thai-style', when it comes to restaurants, describes those places where the majority of the clientele are locals, where the recipes have not been modified or de-chilli-ed to make them more appealing to foreign guests, and where the emphasis is on ordering dozens of dishes and sharing them amongst a group of friends. This communal dining concept usually results in an almost cafeteria-like setup, with lines of large tables with bench seating. Pattaya Seafood is exactly like that. Read More...

Pinnacle and Meridian Revolving Restaurants

Located on the 52nd, 53rd, and 54th floors of Pattaya Park Tower, this seaside sky-high restaurant offers international and seafood buffet with breathtaking and unlimited views of the ocean and Pattaya City.

Preecha Seafood

There’s not much to the décor or atmosphere here, but this Thai-style seaside restaurant whips up some of the tastiest seafood in town. Walk through the aquarium section at the entrance and the restaurant opens out to the ocean, with a terrace jutting out over the water. Don’t miss the signature dishes, including chili salt mantis shrimp, baked scallops and blue crab som tam. Most of the diners are Thai – a good indicator of truly Thai tastes.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 - 22:00
  • Location: 200/9 Moo 4, Na Jomtien Soi 28, Na Jomtien
  • Tel: +66 (0)3 870 9439

Rimpa Lapin

The food at this out-of-the-way eatery is certainly good, but it is not the star attraction. The cliff-top location offers an unrivalled view along the Jomtien coastline and a cooling sea breeze, creating a wonderful atmosphere. The restaurant is a little more Thai-centric than most of the other entries in our list of the 10 Best Thai Restaurants in Pattaya, which does make it a more authentic experience, but could also make ordering a little tricky. The view more than justifies a few minutes of awkwardness while the friendly staff help you out, though.

  • Opening Hours: Mon – Fri 17:00 – 24:00, Sat – Sun 15:00 – 24:00
  • Location: Na Jomtien Soi 36, Sukhumvit Road, Na Jomtien
  • Tel: +66 (0)3 823 5515

The Centara Grand Phratamnak’s rooftop, poolside restaurant has a commanding view over the ocean and some of the finest Italian food in Jomtien. It is the home of regular special events - both culinary and social - including barbecue dinners and wine evenings. With the first class service you would expect of a five-star brand, the menu boasts home-style Italian haute cuisine including the likes of beef prosciutto with arugula, fresh oysters and lobster, a variety of pastas and pizzas and an impressive range of wines.

A combination of its secluded location in the middle of a small forest and the open teak structure makes the Sugar Hut Restaurant feel like it is in some remote traditional Thai village instead of just off one of the busiest roads in Jomtien. The exceptional cuisine also helps to create this effect, with such delights as bean salad, cooked mixed seafood with coconut milk and chilli paste, and North Thailand-style Penang curry. An absolute must-try from the desserts menu is the Bou Loy, which is a warm rice dumpling with sweet coconut milk. Read More...
