Lunch at the Green Bottle

The Green Bottle is not a new venue for Pattaya. The sign above the door says it all - 1988. Twenty years old this year, but if there is anyone unsure of exactly where it is located, it is on Second Road, just after Soi Diana Inn on the right hand side and just after Mike’s Department store on the left.
