Being a seaside city, Pattaya offers a good range restaurants with a view to dine for. The Sky Gallery is like a slice of heaven blessed with a breathtaking view of the ocean and Koh Larn island. This restaurant is truly a sanctuary to escape the wild life around Pattaya.
The moment we arrived, we were awestruck by the beauty of the entire place. In fact, it looked a lot nicer in real life and no amount of photos can really do justice to how amazing this place really is. Besides the patio seatings, there is also an open garden with plush sofas which offers a picnic-like experience.
The clean and pristine condition of the beach was pleasantly surprising because most of the beaches we have been to in Pattaya were quite littered. And since the restaurant sits on a cliff, you have a good view of the beach and activities from the top.
Menu wise, there’s definitely something for everyone may it be Western or Thai dishes. I’d say the prices are fair considering the location and you shouldn’t be spending more than THB400 per pax to enjoy a fulfilling meal here. That being said, don’t have too high expectation on the taste because we felt the food were so-so. Presentation was great though.
We had The Sky Pasta (spaghetti chilli sake & salty egg with seared scallop and salmon with salmon caviar) @ THB295, Thai River Prawn Bisque with a dash of cognac @ THB155, Croque Monsier (grilled ham & cheese sandwich with burned bechamel and cheddar cheese) @ THB245 and two coffees.
Although we only planned to have a quick brunch here, we decided to stick around longer to enjoy the fantastic scenery. After you are done eating and photographing, you may also want to check out The Chocolate Factory which happens to be just next door.
Now here comes the tricky part: getting here. I think we were lucky that our hotel has operates a baht-bus of their own, so it only cost us a minimal THB30 and 10 minutes to reach here.
If your hotel doesn’t provide a similar service, your best bet would be getting a taxi, or negotiate a fixed fare with the normal baht bus.
