26/12/11 We have just received this news from the former Casa Di Alice in Soi Day Night. It will have a new name – Alicia’s
“Hi all, This restaurant is currently closed for renovations.Also, the entire concept will be changed from what it was (Itlian Ristoranta) to a place where one can relax in very comfy’ armchairs with big pillows; lots of greenery, a pool-table an great background tunes. The ambiance will be very conductive to a relaxing time.
At the new “Alicia’s” you will also find a brilliantly varied Snack-Meal Menu, with delicacies like: Dutch Meat Croquettes-on-Bread; Indonesian Sateh-with-peanut-sause; Pancakes (various); Tender-Chicken Dill-Potato Salad and much more. Also the bar wil be open with all the usual; but a special ‘page’ has been reserved for healthy drinks like Water-Melon Delight; Lime-Delight and a few others.
The other excellent news is that the pricing at Alicia’s will come as a pleasant surprise to many of you: that’s a promise !
Keep a eye on this page for news about the re-opening, which we expect to be within the next 2 weeks.
Look forward to seeing you there soon. Jean-Claude (@ Alicia’s)”

22/07/11 I can confirm Chercher La Femme in the old Chez Vicky site, Soi Day Night, Pattaya, is now open – not at all what we thought. Just shows how the rumours and the advance information we got was misleading. It is run by a nice couple and the menu is surprising. Read all about them here.

01/03/11 The MY THAI restaurant has opened with the theme Thai and French food. The menu is mainly Thai with a sprinkling of French. The place is soul-less and huge. The staff inattentive and the prices too high. Apart from that it’s good!
