Coq d'Or (Le)
Situated in a lovely and sprawling villa on well-manicured lawns, this highly elegant French restaurant has been serving up haute cuisine since the 1960s. The interior is divided into different rooms, each with its own feel, from cozy to smart.
I can simply say..It is the best French restaurant in chiangmai.

" ..... everything about the restaurant has always been on the plus side, including the venue. Although the cost of a meal is rather high I must say that the value and the enjoyment that my guests and I have always had has been more than the cost I could have ever paid ............. There were only a couple of extra amenities that I found missing in your review, with the first being the excellent live musical entertainment that accompanies dining on most evenings ...... The other marvelous addition to the dining was the use of the old London taxi for free pick-up and return at the hotel ...... In summary, I would have to say that, at least in my humble opinion, le Coq d'Or is certainly the best European-style restaurant not only in Chiang Mai but clearly in all of Thailand ...... "
Though this was not our first visit (and hopefully not our last), it was a very elegant evening and good to return.
The staff is top notch and provided a wonderful atmosphere and experience. The evening began with our very on escort to the restaurant in your English Cab. The drivers were top notch and set the stage for the evening. Upon arrival we were met by your staff. They are pleasant, professional, and just down right good people!
Our dining experience was exactly that….an experience to be forever remembered. For starters, the caesar salad was tremendous as it was expertly prepared at the side of our table. Additionally, all of our meals were perfectly prepared and very pleasing to the palette, including the oysters on the half shell, mountain trout, steak and more….all very very satisfying. Then it was time for dessert. First a strawberry soufflé that was out of this world…..possibly the best dessert that I have ever had! I must also mention the birthday cake that was specially prepared and equally as good! My compliments to the chef…great cooking!
The atmosphere for our dining experience was very pleasant. A bass player and piano player graciously played throughout our visit. The music was soft, entertaining and appropriate – kudos to them!
Overall, this was an outstanding evening, with excellent food, great service and wonderful people. It was truly a birthday to remember with family and friends. Thanks for letting us share a wicked good time at Le Coq d’Or.
Great ambience, wonderful service, picked up and taken back to our hotel by a London cab, but the food was only average and expensive by Thai standards. There are better French restaurants in Bangkok at 1/3 of teh price with great service.
My husband and I visited Chiang Mai for two weeks over Christmas 2005, and dined at Le Coq d'Or. We dine regularly in Australia and overseas,and have never experienced service and attention as we did at this restaurant. The staff are passionate about their roles, nothing is too much trouble, they anticipate your every whim! The menu is superb with a strong French influence, and the wine list is extensive with some very tasty French and Chilean wines. We rate the restaurant as 6 star, and are returning this Christmas just to experience the dining at the restaurant.
To have your own New Year balloon sent aloft was just so special.
We thank all the staff, especially "Bee" for their attentive service, and its so rewarding for us a diners to see staff who appreciate their work and are proud of it too.
We look ofrward to revisitng Le Coq d"or in December 2006.
I took my son and his wife to this restaurant, along with my wife, to celebrate my wife�s birthday. We were collected from our hotel by the restaurant�s �London Taxi� and had a fun filled ride to the restaurant. The d�cor of the restaurant was very nice indeed. Two gentlemen were playing jazz music that was mellow and fit right in with the scene. Things even got better from the point of being seated. The service was impeccable and the quality and quantity of the food and wine were excellent! Presentation was also excellent. In fact, it was the best meal that I had eaten anywhere in the world in over 15 years and this is something said from someone who has been in the food business for over 40 years � both in regulatory and private sectors and who lived in Italy for over 15 years and also in the USA. We were extremely surprised by the restaurant�s staff presenting my wife with a birthday cake and serenading our table. When it was time to go the �London Taxi� returned us to our hotel. All in all � a fantastic evening and a restaurant that I would very highly recommend if you are ever in the Chiang Mai area.
The first time I tried Coq d'or was several years ago when dining there was a pleasure. The last time we went (2 years ago) it had changed hands and frankly a big disappointment. As a Bangkok resident I quite often travel to other provinces within Thailand and my expectations of many of the Western style restaurants are never very high. However considering this place gets so much hype and it is in Thailands second biggest city I thought it would be an experience. I'm off to Chiangmai again this December 2004 so I may try it again to see if it has improved but I will definitely be avoiding anything resembling a set menu as the Christmas menu I sampled was not good.
Furthermore I hope they have employed a decent somelier
on my last visit I enquired what exactly the Chablis on the wine list was (it was simply listed as Chablis no year no info.
The waiter said "oh it's a white wine from France sir"

your typical Irish pub, though the posters celebrating Irish culture help to justify the pub's name. Upstairs is a ...
