Le Pré Grill

Hi there!

Last month I had a chance to try out the wine dinner at a French restaurant called Le Pré Grill. I decided to go there because of the very reasonably priced set menu for a wine dinner:

2,000 baht net

My experience there was pretty good. Although the dishes were not the best I’ve had nor did a dish stood out to be extremely memorable, but they were all tasty and relatively good value considering the price. I definitely felt like I got more than I paid for.The only two complaints I have are, first, the options they have for none-seafood-eater. I called ahead to make sure that I could switch some of the dishes to a non-aquatic option. And they ensured me that I could just tell my server again once I arrived and there would be no problem. And, yes, there was no problem because they kindl took out all the seafood for me and replaced every single course with foie gras….cooked the exact same way; for example, for the first course what I got was a piece of pancetta and two portions of Foie gras, which was a little bit of an overkill in my opinion. Second complaint is the presentation of some of the dishes which I thought could have been better. The way my trio of finger foods came was a little unappetizing and somewhat outdated (I’m not a fan of decorations that 1) look messy 2) are non-edible 3) do not add to the flavor nor the appearance of the dish such as the flag, the shriveled strings of veggies, and the The Leaning Tower of Pisa-style mille feuilles. )

Apart from that the service was lovely. The server also let us try a really delicious Moscato D’Asti which they recently got from their supplier to try. And they kept refilling our glasses since we were one of the last tables to leave, so we got much more than the 2000 baht we paid!

Bon Appétit!
