12 Months of Dining Out

At this time of year we sit down and look at the restaurant reviews we have done. This past year (2008) we reviewed 19 new venues, which is almost a record. From the 19 new places to eat, there were three that were outstanding, and in our opinion will be able to hold their own amongst the established restaurants in Pattaya. These were the Minus 5 degrees supper club, the Café des Amis and the Grappa.
