I do not know why they have changed the name from Cafe Ritz to Cafe John. It seems totally illogical but I am glad that they have not changed, what is essence is an excellent choice for English cuisine. Last night, the Roast Lamb was very good but next time, I am definitely going to try the Salmon. The other... More

Please remember that it's now officially called Cafe John, but its still known to all of the regulars as the Cafe Ritz. You may have trouble finding it too as its at the bottom end of the Jomtien Complex out near Jomtien Beach. The food and service remains as good as ever and the price has not changed with their...

Formally know as the ritz, really good food always fresh and very well presented. The roast dinners are excellent but plenty of choice on menu also lots of nice desserts. Very good service and attention to detail. Not at all expensive.

This little restaurant in the Jontiem Complex will always be known to locals as the Cafe Ritz, but it's name has had to be changed for legal reasons to the Cafe John. Fortunately for all concerned, it remains the same restaurant with the same value for money menus, excellent food and great service. This is one restaurant that serves only... More

I went for a meal there last night. It was excellent, as ever BUT, although its the same staff and the same menu ( very, very good ) they have changed to name. Why, I don't have a clue and it seems utterly stupid and crazy, to stop using such a well known name and change not to Cafe John... More

Hot, Aircon is that old parts missing from it which will harbour dust and dirt  Light flickering then stopped and different colour lighting as they got the bulb colour combinations wrong so you have warm white mixed with bright white lighting and it's annoying. When the waiter was told about the flickering light and we said turn it off, he... More

Went there with a friend who goes regularly and I was very pleased we did. The staff were pleasant and friendly, but not over the top. My food was very good, having the prawn cocktail, served English style with bread and butter and then I had the Roast Pork which was very good, came with Yorkshire Pudding and apple sauce... More

This is a very popular restaurant, so it’s wise to reserve a table. The name has changed from Café Ritz to Café John. The food is British and there is no Thai food on the menu. Service was efficient and the food arrived promptly. I started with a prawn cocktail, then red snapper with cream and prawn sauce, and finished... More
