“Delicious food in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 via mobile

I did not stay at the guest house, but my boyfriend and I ate at the cafe. I had the pad Thai and it was amazing and so reasonably priced. My boyfriend had hot chocolate which he compared to hot chocolate in Amsterdam! And he had a chocolate brownie (both phenomenal) the setting was lovely and the cats adorable. They do not bother you and they are fun to watch and take photos of. The server went above and beyond with helping us practice Thai. She even wrote down Thai phrases for us in English and Thai! We will be back!

We are not the first year we return to this place that would have a nice dinner! The most delicious coffee! Great Thai cuisine! Many cats, very beautiful view of the river. All this will allow in this in this fabulous location!

This place is wonderful! Great character and lots of treasures to look at in the antique shop at the front. The garden restaurant is a great place to stay for hours enjoying tasty cheap food. The rooms a good and have air con and tv. Enjoy your time looking through the shop at old memorabilia and furniture etc and then sit by the river and eat eat eat!

Decided on Regina for dinner as it was on the riverside, like a lot of others, but half the price! It looks unusual at first but go through to the garden and is beautiful. The food was really good and aslong as you like cats (lots of nice ones wandering around) and cheap beer! Great experience and more people should give it a go.

Regina Book & Coffee is a gem among the very expensive restaurants on this street. From outside it looks like an old curiosity shop, you enter, cross the shop and reach the lovely, peaceful garden on the river front. The food is excellent value for it's price and the plates are generous. As a cat lover, I could stay there for days. The cats didn't disturb us, but didn't reject some cuddling or food ;) They weren't also camera shy. The music played in the background varies from Chopin to Elvis, very relaxing. Not to miss.

Regina Riverside is certainly not 'fast food'. Come here to relax and watch the comings and goings on the river and the market on the opposite bank. The restaurant is interestingly laid out: from the front it does not look like a restaurant at all and the dining area is at the back, in the garden.

The food is just heaven. Clearly freshly cooked and simply delicious. My wife and I ate to our fill, plus a drink for THB 200, so excellent value for money as well.

I have docked 1 star for the roaming cats. I love cats, but I'm very wary of what you can get if they bite. I am still happy to visit again, in fact my taste buds will demand it of me.

Enjoy.
