Akvavit Jomtien


ThailandWine&Dine

Recommended Posts

(April 24th)

It's great when a recommendation pays off, so cheers Ben for sending me to Akvavit on Jomtien Beach Road (soi 3). Pretty quiet in Jomtien at midday, so I had the Akvavit pretty much to myself except for a few customers at the bar downing cocktails.

 

Attractive restaurant, with a large outdoor restaurant and bar area, and an air-conditioned area indoors. Smart, clean, nice bright decor and comfy chairs. Good view of the sea. Fast and friendly service... interesting and varied selection of dishes on the menu, Thai, classic European, as well as Scandinavian (the owner is Swedish).


For a starter I had 'toast Skagen', prawn in dill mayonnaise on toasted bread. Very good indeed. Main course was the weekly special, grilled salmon fillet on a bed of Shittake mushrooms with a white wine sauce and lime butter, and pressed potato as a side dish. Very nicely presented and delicious. Still hungry, so I gave the crème brûlée a try for dessert. Ok the custard base had an unusual taste (compared to the standard dessert dish you find on virtually every menu in France), but it was pleasant enough and I enjoyed it. The burnt caramel topping was still warm, so it hadn't just been transferred from fridge to table as happens more and more in France, unfortunately.


Couldn't resist indulging a little more, so with the espresso I had the praliné chocolates, which were rather like Belgian chocolates, hard outside, soft inside. Very nice.


Reasonable pricing for a beachfront restaurant serving quality food - 800 baht for the three courses, 220 baht for the overindulgence in chocolate. House white wine at 190 baht per glass (a nice wine too), water 40 baht, espresso 60 baht.


A really enjoyable dining experience in a pleasant setting, nice sea views. Highly recommended.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
