150301 Why cook if you can have this

Sour News!

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Guaranteed sour, as we grow our own!

Rosemary – Dew of the Sea!

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

The Mediterranean gift to seriously good food. We’re the only ones growing and grooming our own rosemary bushes.
Unlike the leafies they prefer the traditional pot as their habitat over the hydroponic way of growing glasses emoticon
You’ll realise the difference immediately; but for us to know and for you to find out 8-)

Basilico = THE herb!

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Italian cuisine without real, garden-fresh basil? Regretfully practised in many if not most “Italian” restaurants! 

Well, the same way we grow our own leafy salads we also ensure that your Capri Salad, all our basil-containing sauces and soups such as Basilico, Bolognese, Napoli, Pesto just to name a few – are prepared with chemical-free basilico harvested just before it is being brought to good use 8-)

Salads ‘r us!

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

We are for sure the only restaurant in Pattaya, if not Thailand, germinating and growing our own salads inside our restaurant.

This picture, taken from the rack at the inside of the entrance, shows an NFT-rack guaranteeing that our salads can be taken off the water flow less than 10 minutes before you get it served. Cannot get fresher and healthier than that, don’t you think so?

Happy 14th February 2015!

Regretfully fully booked already, thank you.

Before and after

Ever wondered about how these letters get fixed onto a light box?

Well, we just had our light boxes redone as, after all those years, even the best quality of coloured films fade in the tropical sun of the Kingdom. Went unnoticed as we must have passed those light boxes only 5’000 times already.

The night before:

Dine in Space

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

In most restaurants people sit too close to each other.

Our 80 seats are over an area of 700 m2 or 7’500 ft2; count in the 12 off-road parkings, the building housing the bar and the kitchens as well as the garden for the kids to roam results in more than double; all our 1’628 m2, some 17’500 ft2, are for our guests.

Very generous spacing in Pattaya’s arguably nicest Italian garden restaurant, don’t you think so? Privacy at its best yet not alone 8-)

Again …

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

It is compliments of the municipalicity – again – that they opened the road leading to Ticino – again. This time its wastewater pipes, at least that is what they say 8-)
Hence the last 100 metres are to be covered by foot. At the very last Y-junction leading to Ticino, as said some 100 metres before our restaurant, we’ve fixed an official off-road parking (see picture). So, instead of turning right to us just park your car to the left. Thank you!
