Wasn't me.

Anyway, today GF and I went to El Greco. This little Greek place run by a Greek couple has received raving reviews on boards and the PBC, so finally I gave it a try.

We were the first customers when we arrived around 6:30pm, but 10 more people came shortly afterwards.

Good thing is that many dishes are available as small portions, so you can try several without getting overweight.

The menu is large, they have Greek food, a couple of Thai dishes, pizzas and pastas.

After a free sample of Tzatziki, olives and bread our first dish arrived: pork meatballs, small portion 120 Bt.

Nice crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. Came with a portion of tzatziki and fries.

Next was Falafel with chickenpeas. Never heard of this before but there is no chicken in this dish. It came with joghurt and some brown stuff, which was a bit like hummus, a bit bitter and dry on the tongue. Didn't like this "dressing", the falafel was ok. 130 Bt.

GF had the chicken legs with lemon/mustard. Nice, small portion at 110 Bt.

Then came the starter: pepperoni with feta cheese. Could have been more cheese on it. Have seen pics from others with much more cheese.

Bill came to 630 incl. 2 Leo @60 Bt, a coke and a soda.

Service became a bit slow at the end, a few hickups but nothing to get mad.

Great to have some Greek food, I found the prices very low.

Unfortunately non of the dishes made me say "Wow, I will have this again." Will try some more next time.

Food is available with door2door as well. 

Nice: the kid of one of the guest got some pens and coloring books while waiting for the food.

Check out their website: http://www.elgreco-pattaya.com/

Location: driving down Southpattaya Road from Sukhumvit, turn right into Soi 16 (Bongkot?). After a few hundred meters you reach Soi 5, the restaurant is on the right hand side.

Campario, for your info the Falafel and Chickenpeas must have been written wrongly, it should be falafel and chick peas (garbanzo beans), no chicken as you said but you knew this already right?

Chickenpeas, hmm, yes, chickpeas is correct, don't remember what was written on the menu as I was browsing it quickly. GF was hungry and didn't give me much time. :rolleyes:

In German they are called Kichererbse, kirchern means to giggle and erbse is pea, so it could be translated to gigglepeas, or giggling peas? :laugh:

Food was not spectacular, but I would rather go there to enjoy the location and have some food.

Goong tschai nam plaa (raw shrimps in fish sauce) Tom Yum Gung, some veggies in oyster sauce and New Zealand mussels.

840 Baht incl. 2 rice, 400 Baht for 2 pitcher Singha, 62 Baht service charge, total 1302 Baht.

 

Unfortunately the crab was out, suggested the waitress to get a boat and catch some, but she said she wasn't a fisherman(-woman).

Service nice, you are greeted at the entrance with something like "Welcome to the View Mare" in Thai and English.
