We stopped in here for lunch after going to Kata View Point. A few other reviews have said that the service wasn't good. Service was a little slow, and not with a smile. But we weren't in a hurry and were quite happy to have a drink and listen to Bob Marley! A huge storm rolled in while we were... More

We went to the After Beach Bar as part of a large group in late July. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy evening so we did not get to see the sunset, however, there were great views to the headlands north & south of Kata Noi beach.That is the best I can say about the After Beach Bar. Service was terrible,... More

The restaurant is very much a tourist hotspot for good reasons of course, great views overlooking the ocean. I cannot speak very highly for the service here nor the quality of the food available albeit the variety is adequate. I do like the reggae music and ambience of the place. However, as the restaurant is right smack beside a narrow... More

Went to the After Beach bar in Kata for dinner and to watch the sunset with our travelling group. Unfortunately the night we went wasn't idea, very cloudy and windy so the sunset wasn't great and we ended up eating inside. I did expect more reggae music and something live, but not to be. still worth the effort if just... More

Couldn't recommend a better spot to take in the sunset. Just up the road from Kata beach (well worth the 200 baht taxi/tuk-tuk fare), this restaurant bar not only offers expansive ocean views but also great Thai food and colourful cocktails. We got there around 6 pm which was perfect to secure one of the outside tables and soak in... More

My wife and i went to the after beach bar, to take photos of the sunset. When we arrive the place was buzzing with a good vibe. We ordered and food arrived quickly. When the photo opportunities had gone, many patrons moved on and left about 1/5 of the people who stayed to chill and eat. We enjoyed our time... More

What a place to have a meal, nestled in the mountains overlooking Kata Noi Beach. View was unbelievable. The staff were kind and easy to talk to. Food was really nice with a great variety from Thai to Western. Its a must see.

A friend told me that this was a great place to stop and have a beer at the end of the day. He was right. A good view looking over the beach and although the sun set was poor the day I visited, I can imagine it could be lovely. I can recommend this place highly,; a good spot to... More

This bar was super chilled out! We loved the reggae theme, and after asking where we were from (New Zealand) the bartender played some Katchafire. Beers were cheap, the view was good, and the locals were friendly

Food is ok, tasty but nothing special. Average phuket price - read expensive! Service was very below average, some of the servers I would call grumpy. View was good but next door has the same, with better food and service. At the end of the meal one of the servers gave me one of those marketing surveys to fill out,... More
