From the view, the food and the outstanding service this place is a must for anyone travelling to patong. Yes it is more expensive than the usual Thai restaurants in Patong but it's worth every Baht. You will not be disappointed.

Every time I've been to Patong I've driven past here but never gone in. This time we did and LOVED it!! The view is stunning, the cocktails are great and the food is stunning. It's a touch expensive but worth every cent - Dress up and enjoy a stunning meal on the Thailand Coast!

I thought the menu was a little limited, but my scallop risotto was lovely. Meal was expensive for only having mains. But you could not fault the view. Staff were all very nice and great service.

We enjoyed our food at Joes Downstairs, very well made and presented. The view was gorgeous and the interior of the place was clean and fresh. We felt a bit let down with the service from the waitresses but overall it was very nice.

Find this little Jewel of a restuarant just outside Phatong on the way to Surin beach. The view is spectacular and the staff so amazing. Thanx to Sue for looking after us the night. Do try their "litchi martini's" they are awesome. We will return as this restuarant is pure blizz....

This is the place we reserve for our last night in Phuket. It is a special kind of place. Exquisite food, exquisite location. Waves leaping upwards, as if attracted by the aroma of the food. Everything is ever so perfect, except one thing. In a place where one can lose all sense of time, this is the second time around... More

Some of my favourite style of food served beautifully in a stunning location. Seriously if you want a chilled out afternoon or evening with tasty food well served, in a location that makes you feel like you're in the caribbean for half the price this is it. I'm not a big meat eater but I tasted the steak and it... More

We enjoyed starters and main course unfortunately on two occasions there was only 1 sweet available chocolate yuk and the coffee machine was out of action. We may try again

Went there just 2 of us after hearing so much good about this place, word of mouth and Trip Advisor. Stress that we are not food snobs and enjoy all types. The position and ambience = fantastic! Service was good - there were only 2-3 couples in the place. Tried the tapas and greatly underwhelmed. Calamari was ordinary, and the... More
