Wow! That is the one word for this restaurant. Yes, it was a bit difficult to find but it was so totally worth it! Beautiful, very French atmosphere, amazing service and very good food. What else do you need in a restaurant? Absolutely loved the Quiche Lorraine and the 5 Hour Lamb! Though I have to warn you, it is... More

I have been eating here for 15 years or more first on Soi 5 beach road and latterly at it's new location. You need to research how to get there if you plan to eat as it is well hidden off the beaten track. The ambience and service is fantastic and Jose the owner is quite a character. However, the...

I've been here many times over the last year and every time i'm impressed and the food is great and fairly priced. I love the location as it's out of the way too You have to go to really experience this place and it's somewhere i'll be going back to over and over again

The place the locals want kept quiet since limited space and bookings are essential. The food quality is exceptional and generous in a private house environment. Try the prawns sauteeed in Pastis or Pate de Foie gras d'oie to start - your choice of beef cut or fish for main with always sautee potatoes unless the roast beef dauphinoise is... More

Not a fancy or large spot by any means, Au Bon Coin is located on a somewhat dark, secluded residential street. The atmosphere inside is rather like a country home with tables spaced well apart from one another in various nooks around a room with what seemed like a low ceiling (or maybe it was the dim lighting that made...

Perhaps we picked a bad night but we were very disappointed. They really try to push the "fine dining" concept but failed in most key aspects for us. We are not really fans for fine dining (rather seafood menus with seaview s possible) but once in a while we go for it but in return expect the full throttle fine... More

This is a very nice restaurant when you want a no fuss French food experience. You get your food, your wine and thats about it. The food is great, the wine is good but the service is hit and miss...but most people are fine with that as the prices are reasonable. All around, very good, but its just missing that... More

We are regular visitors to this restaurant and have always greatly enjoyed it. We visited again last week and were as delighted as ever. Steaks cooked to perfection, delicious 5 hour lamb and lamb ribs. Never been disappointed. It is a little difficult to locate the first time, but worth the effort. One comment was about the fact they had... More
