“Awesome location, very good service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We went to the Silhouette Restaurant and Bar for dinner and we loved the place. You sit right next to their beautiful garden with a great view on the mountains around Pai.
The food was delicious and the service great.
It's a bit difficult to find, but worth every effort.

“Pai - tasctic ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Wonderful food, tapas style menu with various hot and cold delights. Can highly recommend the ribs (ordered a second portion as was so nice!), the chefs board, the brie salad and the wings. Great stuff. Beautiful ambience, specially with the rain pouring down outside, can't fault this place. Service was spectacular, with a genuine smile. House wine decent if a tad on the small side (125 ml I think) but served up in a lovely glass and just 155 baht a glass. All in all a great experience that I can really recommend. 3 wines and 7 plates came to 1400 baht. Just do it!

“Fantastic food, great entertainment fun for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

We went here to listen to a man with dreads play guitar and sing. He was great but we are reviewing the restaurant... The restaurant and the grounds of the hotel which the restaurant was a part of were gorgeous. Our kids loved exploring and getting lost in the garden! The food was really delicious and very well priced. The service impeccable. Great escape from the young backpacker scene which can get really annoying after a while!! If you are over 30 it is a must!

“An oasis of excellence in Pai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I almost NEVER write reviews for anything on tripadvisor. Last night, I went to eat at Silhouette with my brother whom I am traveling with and 2 friends we met along the way. Silhouette/Reverie is like an oasis of excellence in a town where you can have a 5 course thai street food meal for a couple of US dollars. The food/drink at silhouette is pricey by Pai standards, but not at all by typical American customs, and I actually think it is reasonably priced for the quality of the food and service there. The chefs board of Meat and cheese was wonderful, in fact, we enjoyed the cheese so much that we ordered another board for dessert. I have heard that the chef is American, and it makes sense, the food is prepared and presented in a way that is typical at higher end restaurants in the states. Having a wine list was also a first that I had seen in Pai, and it was a nice departure from the normal .5L Chang and Leo beer to be able to get a nice bottle of Malbec to enjoy with our meal. I had missed having any type of decent wine with dinners while traveling in Thailand, so if you are looking for that, come to Silhouette. As for the food, get a meat or cheese chefs board, and then many of the appetizers. The tamarind ribs and avocado ceviche were standouts. The kebobs were grilled perfectly and very tasty. If I ever make it back to Pai (which I sincerely hope I do) I would love to stay at the Reverie and eat at Silhouette. The hotel grounds are also seems to be immaculate and amazing. Beautiful pools. The only issue is that it can be a bit tricky to find on motorbikes at night, but its well worth the journey. Well done Reverie Siam.

Seb S, General Manager at Silhouette Restaurant and Bar, responded to this review, 2 July 2014
Dear Andrew
Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our restaurant. Naturally we are delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us enough to motivate you to spend the time composing such a detailed review. Our Executive Chef is indeed from the States however he has spent many years in Asia and travelled extensively through Europe and south America, consequently the menu, although firmly rooted in Mediterranean cuisine is quite eclectic.
We do hope that you manage to return one day as we are constantly experimenting with our selection, coming soon is a small Asian contemporary section.
We are aware that finding us can be a little tricky, we are located just outside the main town, about 1 km, however we are installing many more road signs over the next few weeks which should solve the problem. For anyone trying to find us follow the old Gramophone Signs from the main police station, or if you are in central Pai you can call us and we will collect you in our TukTuk.
Kind Regards
Seb Scholey

“Magical atmosphere in a remote location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

This restaurant offers stunning European decor set in the Pai valley with an uninterrupted view of the valley and surroundings.

It would be an exceptional find anywhere in Thailand, but astounded me to find such a place in Pai.

They have as good a wine list as you'll find in Thailand (wine in Thailand is always overpriced with a limited selection compared to back home, but this place does the best with what it can do), and their food was tasty and adequately priced to.

I'm hesitant to recommend it as I would prefer to keep it a secret. However, it is too expensive for all the stereotypical Pai backpackers so is likely to remain a tranquil and relaxing retreat.
