UPDATE DECEMBER 2010- Monsoon has been re–branded as TAPAS CAFE in a joint venture between original owners of Monsoon and the TAPAS CAFE group from Bangkok.
I will update with some new photos- but the overall design and furnishings remain the same as previously.
TAPAS CAFE resides in a restored original Thai timber shophouse along the beach front road in the central area of Hua Hin- opposite the fishing piers and near the Hilton hotel.
The building has been faithfully restored to it’s previous elegance and is furnished with many original Vietnamese antique furniture pieces sourced personally by the proprietors.
The ground floor consists of a bar and lounge area opening directly onto the street front, the open kitchen at the rear of the building, and with a small open garden area with tables. The interior has the original exposed timber beams and pillars, and painted white timber ceiling, also with the authentic concrete floor style from the period of original construction. The furnishings are solid timber- the bar, stools and tables, and comfortable leather and fabric covered armchairs. Brass ceiling fans circulate the air – adding to the authentic period ambience.
The main dining room is upstairs, and there is additional seating out on the open balcony overlooking the street below.
The menu at TAPAS CAFE specialises in authentic Spanish tapas dishes. Prices are very reasonable- and the quality and presentation first class.
The bar offers an excellent selection of cocktails, as well as beers, wines and spirits.
In summary, a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere – whether dining upstairs, or just enjoying some drinks in the ground floor bar, whilst watching the passing scene on the street outside.
Tapas Cafe- 62 Naresdamri Road, Hua Hin. Thailand
