NileGuide Expert Says:
One of the best places in Bangkok for a romantic dinner by the Chao Phraya River
Maha Rat, Phra Borom Maha Ratchawang, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok, Thailand
02 221 9158
Located just a short walk from Wat Pho
, this restaurant serves refined Thai food and Italian pastas with outdoor seating that overlooks the Chao Phraya River
. Opposite the river is Wat Arun
which when lit up at night creates an ambiance for this eatery like no other. The upstairs bar Amorosa enjoys the same view. The hot spices are backed off a bit to accommodate the foreign palate; you might request extra spice if you prefer. There is also indoor seating available but it sacrifices the view. Reservations are highly recommended. If you are just going for the sunset be sure to at least order a drink at the bar. The place is cozy and romantic, so the management frowns on tourists who merely tromp through for the photo opp.
