10 Best Restaurants in Pattaya Beach

The Best Places to Eat in Pattaya

Our list of the best restaurants in Pattaya showcases just a fraction of the great selection of top-class eateries in the city, which serve a wide range of cuisines to meet the needs of a multinational resident and tourist population. With a large proportion of the local expatriate community being from Europe and America, these are the flavours which dominate many menus, though there are plenty of alternatives and most establishments also offer at least a page of Thai favourites. 

Hungry visitors looking for fresh seafood would be advised to head to Jomtien or Naklua, but for variety Pattaya Bay is the premier dining destination in the city. From French to Far Eastern and delicate haute cuisine to gut-busting breakfasts, there is a restaurant for any palate and any price. Our list of the 10 best restaurants in Pattaya covers an equally wide range of options and includes some of the big names and the hidden gems, including international brands and local heroes.

The a la carte menu also covers a broad spectrum, from grain-fed Australian sirloin steak to deep fried tofu with vegetarian Szechuan sauce. The decor is as sleek as the service at Mantra and it makes for an all round sophisticated meal. Read More...
