Bruno's was Pattaya's
first fine dining restaurant and soon set the
standards for others to follow and quickly became
the place to eat in Pattaya.
Bruno's is still the
unrivalled top choice for international gourmets.
"Bruno's" advertises as "Pattaya's most
sophisticated restaurant" and is rated as 'one of
the best restaurants around Thailand'. Even with
ever-increasing competition in Pattaya's fine dining
sector, there shouldn't be too many gourmets in
Pattaya, who oppose to the contents of this
It is easy to find,
being on Thappraya Road which is the main link
between Jomtien and Pattaya.
Renown for fantastic food, splendid service, as well
as, good value for money, Bruno's success grew
rapidly and a new home had to be found. It was
decided it would be moved to Jomtien. The new, and

restaurant is now under the control of Swiss chef

The menu items on offer have been given a new lease
of life following visiting Michelin chef Luca
Messina’s culinary tour of duty at Bruno’s, with
many of the more favored items introduced by Luca
now included in the regular menu, such as the
parmesan cream soup with parma ham and rosemary.
Among the other soups, gazpacho is a chilled spicy
tomato soup with small cubes of peppers, tomatoes,
cucumbers and onion, while there is also green
asparagus soup with shrimp and lobster bisque. Cold
appetizers include a lovely starter of Poached rock
lobster in cold tuna sauce. My dining partner and I
enjoyed the Ravioli with brown butter, parmesan and
black truffle and looked forward to additional main
dishes that soon arrived. As each dish was served,
the meal got better, and while enjoying our wine the
Australian angus fillet "stroganoff" with egg
dumplings arrived along with the Pan-fried snow fish
in saffron sauce served on Thai wild rice. Desserts
and flambees are numerous and all are inviting but
the Crepe Suzette is decadent.
The walk-in wine cellar with 190 labels offers a
full range of old and new world wines from 1,000
baht up to 32,000 baht with two Italian and two
French house wines available by the glass.
