Chez Marco

When you’re looking for a seriously delicious meal in Chiang Mai, you needn’t look much further than Chez Marco. A taste of the French Riviera in the middle of Loi Kroh Road, the restaurant is known for its fun and lively atmosphere, its “handsome chef and beautiful staff,” and of course, it’s fabulous food!

Developed by the friendly French-Japanese chef Marco and his Japanese father Tsuneo (a.k.a. “Papa”), Chez Marco has won the Thailand Tatler award four times, along with countless other distinctions over the years. Tsuneo received a first class honour from the world-renowned Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts School in France and says that he now cooks European food better than Japanese food, thanks to his long time experience working in five starhotels in France, Canada and America. However, he has also brought to the table (literally!) his Japanese eye for simple yet interesting dish decoration, a talent made clear from the moment each beautifully arranged plate is laid down in front of you. Of course, the food tastes even better than it looks, so prepare yourself for a fanciful array of hearty French-Mediterranean dishes that are guaranteed to satisfy.

Chez Marco’s menu includes a full page of vegetarian options, and prices are reasonable considering the large portion size, starting at under 100 baht and topping out at 990 for the tenderloin topped with foie gras. A full bar with an extensive wine and cocktail list is also available, with house wines at 190 baht a glass and bottles from all over the world starting at 990 baht. Check out the blackboard for specials.

Effective March 2015 to September 2015, lunch will be open only by reservation.
