A great French restaurant on the beach of Bang Tao
The Beach Cuisine is a seaside restaurant hard to find on Bang Tao Beach, open for lunch and dinner and serving excellent western and Thai food. The French chef proposes some unique specialities. The setting by the sea is amazing, and when the weather gets stormy as it was on the day we visited, it somehow feels like being in Brittany.
What to order
The menu is surprisingly long and creative, with many types of meat, seafood and French dishes.
Seafood: The slow-cooked whole fresh fish of your choice is one of the recommended items, and it looks good, but you have to order this one an hour in advance, which makes it a little difficult to try unless you are prepared to wait that long (990 baht per kilo). If you can’t wait that long, the Dory fish fillet is 250 baht, the grilled tuna steak is 350 baht, and the mixed grilled seafood platter with half a lobster and tiger prawns is 1,090 baht.
On the meat side, you can try the Australian Ribeye (790 baht), lamb chops (750 baht) or, among others, their famous 9-hour smoked chicken (399 baht). We enjoyed a beef tongue stew (390 baht) and a bone marrow with salad (350 baht).
As for desserts, we had an excellent creme brûlée (150 baht), but you can choose between chocolate brownie (99 baht), the ever-popular mango sticky rice (170 baht) and all kinds of ice creams at 80 baht per scoop.
