    Eating out in Hua Hin

    Going to be spending 4 days in Hua Hin. Been awhile since I stayed at my other pad.
    Anyway the point of this thread is that I enjoy eating out at fine restaurants. Hua Hin a little thin on this. Can anyone recommend some good places to try out?

    Fine restaurants? What sort of food? Thai? French? General Western-type?

    French, Italian, European, etc, etc.
    I am thinking best to stick with the hotels.Such as Sofitel, Marriot and so forth.
    Also must have a decent wine list / cellar.
    I am still waiting on the new wine cellar / bar that will be opening there soon.

    One of our favourites is Baan Itsara, on Naep Khehat rd just north of the city center.

    Also on the same road, down Soi 51 are a couple of good ones. Coco51 being one, cannot remember the name of the other.

    All by the sea side.

    Will be dining at Itsara tomorrow night. Try the clams with basil or the seafood curry - best Thai food I have ever had in my 10 years n Thailand.
    Any error in tact, fact or spelling is purely due to transmissional errors...

    Try the Italian restaurant/steakhouse (Ciao?) run by Marriott. Very good wines. Also Supatras by the Sea at the base of Takiab mountain, Khao Takiab is very good.

    There's one place that I always visit but not sure of the name, so from this description maybe NR can clue us in.

    They do Swedish and German food mainly. It's on the soi running across from Soi Bintabaht, quite near the bars and opposite a few large motorbike hire places. It has quite a few small fish tanks at the entrance. Always enjoy a meal there, great food, good prices.

    Well worth a visit. Also good pizzas at the open air restaurant resaurant on the oposite corner. The spear ribs at the american style restaurant above McDonalds is also good if you suddenly get a craving for western food. Well worth visiting for the music and margaritas alone. The owner used to run a radio station in Pattaya.

    Isn't that the Great American Rib Company? If so, the owner was in construction supplies, not radio.

    Well, that's what he told me when I complimented him on his choise of music at his restaurant. Natually having beeing in the construction business, there is no way in which he could have been running a radio station. Everyone knows that those two professions are mutually exclusive!

    Don't worry Marmers, I'll go down this weekend and tell him he is a bloody lier!

    I think I know the soi. Poonsuk, right? The one right behind the temple? Not sure which place you're talking about, though. On Bintabaht side or temple side? How far down? I'll be out tomorrow evening, so I'll have a look & see if I can name it.

    I can 100% recommend the Italian restaurant, Mumma Mia's on the soi that leads from the main hwy down to the beach - runs along side the Sofitel.
    There is a balcony on the 1st floor if you like outdoors eating or a smoke with your coffee.

    Then an ice cream afterwards at the Gelatti cafe a few doors up the street.

    ^ Yes, Mama Mia's has great Italian food. Not my favourite for pizzas (that would be La Villa on Poonsuk), but extremely good pasta, risotto & entrees.

    Is Mama Mia's that little place where you can sit out in the open at the front? I did have a lasagne there before but it wasn't up to scratch (think it was a frozen one heated up in a microwave) and the service wasn't great either.

    Actually the Italian place I am talking about is quite near the Swedish restaurant I am talking about NR.

    I think I know the soi. Poonsuk, right? The one right behind the temple?
    Well, lets give you directions NR. If you are at that little burger stand in soi bintabaht and walk in the direction of the temple, I think 7/11 will be on your left hand side as well. Then when you get to the end of bintabaht you hang a left. About 5 mins walk down the road and you will find quite a large open air restaurant (all big round white tables with red tablecloths if I remember rightly), though it's entrance is hidden a little with a lot of plants and a bank of about 8-10 small fish tanks in the middle. Really you can't miss it.

    ^^OK, I think the Italian you're talking about is either Grappas (right on the corner of Bintabaht & Poonsuk) or La Villa (opposite the side of City Beach). The other one I think you're on about is Heidi's German Restaurant (although there is a Swedish one right next door)

    No, that's Pasta Factory. Mama Mias is still where it always was, slap bang in the middle of Damnern Kasem Rd.

    There a place in the middle of town that have a good go at creating half decent Mexican food, they also have Guiness on tap, cant remember the name of the place, possibly something like "O'Reillys" or some other Irish themed name. Worth a look.

    There is an Irish Pub called err "The Irish Pub" I think. Always busy. But find the prices high for what it is.

    Been there not bad. Nice food. They still have the Farang band in there. Last I heard they got arrested by the immigration police.
