The food was pretty good but the service was nonexistent. We had to wait for drinks to order and it took about 1/2 hr to get our food.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2017 via mobile

Food and service were really good! We just had a fantastic family dinner here and we all agreed that one of our best Italian dining experiences could be here in Chiang Rai. First, it was the pizza. It was crispy and adequately seasoned: not too much nor little. Then it was the bolognese spaghetti. The sauce smelled really good. We... More

We had dinner on one of the evenings at our stay. The restaurant was full and very busy hence the slow service. There was not enough staff to serve people in a timely manner. However we were not in a rush and just enjoying our evening. It did reach a point where the evening was getting late so we cancelled... More

Decided to stay for dinner after having cocktails and watching gorgeous sunset. The ambience is amazing - very peaceful and right on the river bank. We were pleased with the service. The food however was not tasty at all. We also had breakfast there once too and it was pretty basic, though it was very nice to have a cup... More

It terms of setting for outdoor dining by a lovely river - this place gets five stars. Simply lovely and serene. Nice place to take in the sunset looking up the river with an aperitif, and then sit down for dinner. The service also is quite outstanding. The food was good, but I can't quite go to 5 stars on...

I visited this restaurant for a pre-wedding dinner and was hugely impressed with the service, food, decor and style. We had our very own private section on the first floor. The pre-wedding dinner was amazing. We had a great time. The staff were helpful and I would visit again.

Description
WOOD FIRED FROM THE HEART FAVOLA, a specialty Italian restaurant by the Kok River, is the ultimate riverside dining destination in Chiang Rai for the "lazy gourmet" in a contemporary country scene, with breathtaking views of the Kok River and surrounding Mountains either day or evening. The cuisine in Favola is more of a journey rather than a meal period reflecting its name which means "fable or story" in English, where simplistic Italian flavours are presented from our signature wood fired oven and char-grill along with an array other Authentic Italian favourites.
