It's lively and fun. It's vibrant and exciting. It's a bar and a restaurant. It serves excellent Mediterranean and Thai cuisine. Its prices are incredibly reasonable. It's in the very heart of the bustling Chaweng Beach Road (opposite Chaweng Garden Beach Resort). And its name is Spagó.
Although you're more than welcome to just go there for a drink or two, Spagó is also a restaurant. And an excellent one, at that. Step in from the road and you'll see there's a bar to the right, an impressive delicatessen-style display cabinet of cold cuts and international cheeses straight ahead, smart seating for thirty diners all around and a open staircase at the far right. And if you go up this staircase, you'll be in for a big, and exciting, surprise. That's because when you reach the top of it you'll find yourself in a super-spacious 50-seater restaurant 'proper' that covers more than twice the space of the area below.
There's both Mediterranean and Thai on the multi-sectioned menu. There are salads galore and an incredible range of over 50 pizzas on offer, with a dedicated section for pasta dishes and a tasty choice of top international cheeses and cold cuts, including a delicious Spicy Calabrese - pork sausage seasoned with spices and black pepper - which makes an ideal dish to have as an appetiser.
Although the menu is predominantly Mediterranean, there is a good selection of Thai classics, including the extremely popular Baked Pineapple Rice with curry powder and chicken or shrimp, served in a hollowed-out pineapple.
And after having finished your meal, there's no need to hurry off in search of a great bar - you're already there! Whether you're upstairs or downstairs, you'll be able to enjoy the sounds and atmosphere of downtown Chaweng.
