1 pointVolare, a popular Italian restaurant, reopened at the beginning of November after a two-month closure for a major overhaul. It now features an enclosed bar and a totally redone outside dining area. It's located at the corner of Soi Bukhao and Soi 15, directly east of The Avenue Shopping Plaza and about 200 hundred meters south of LK Metro. Visually, the results are pretty impressive. And this is a pic of the bar from Volare's Facebook page: A fish tank has been built into the floor leading into the bar. The mural on one of the walls is eye-catching. A detailed view: The two nights I ate at Volare this week, it had quite a few customers; about 25 on the first night and 15 on the second. The first night I ate between 9.30 p.m. and 10.00 p.m. and the second between 23.30 p.m. and midnight. I was a bit surprised that so many were dining so late. The customers were a mix of plain vanilla farang with TG companions or male farang in groups as well as Russian and Asian tourists. That bodes well for Volare. To succeed in Pattaya's crowded restaurant segment, a restaurant has to attract customers of different nationalities. A Holiday Inn Express is due to open nearby in 2018 and it should provide Volare with a stream of potential customers. The new trendy but casual decor should also help. The brick pizza oven has been rebuilt at one end of the restaurant. I'm running into Internet hassles again, so I'll save the food reviews for the second installment.

1 pointYou might be disappointed on the guacamole side. I don't think Dave has it on the menu because of the problems in getting good avocados in Pattaya. Evil
