Brilliant view good food

We have eaten here a few times in the past an amazing view of the coast line and made so much nicer if you get a good sunset. The food was lovely the service was very pushy and the waitress rushed our meals so fast it was ridiculous. We ordered tapas from the menu which all was lovely the second... read more

Actually, I went there for after dinner alone. Its location is only 10 minutes from patong beach, dolphin circle, by walk. Opposite the Novotel hotel. There are a lot of local taxi at there, and some parking lots in front of Thai restaurant, next to this cafe. ANW, I experienced the chilling night out at there. Although the choice of... More

If you want a special night out in Phuket, this is a great restaurant situated on the water a short tuk tuk ride at the northern end of Patong Beach. As soon as you walk through the door, you know you are arriving at a great place. Our table was outside on the lower level. We went as a large... More

We had a sunset dinner for four. A bit pricey but the view more than made up for that. We had several cocktails and various dishes which were all perfect.

It was lovely to be right next to the water overlooking the rocks. Thats where it ended. We decided having had a late lunch to order 8 appetizers for the 4 of us to share. The portions were good size but there was simply no taste to the food. We had a cross section of items so don't think we... More

I have just returned to my hotel having dined at Joes downstairs and feel compelled to share my wonderful evening and rave about this amazing restaurant. Service and location were both fantastic but the star of the show was the food itself. I had the crab cake and avocado salad which is without a doubt the best thing I have... More

Really nice restaurant. Sitting on the balcony area with views to Patong Beach was really awesome. The food was superb. We had soft shell crab and snapper/leak tempura rolls. We ordered from the tapas menu because we just wanted a small meal. We had a cocktail with our dinner as well, which was very tasty. Excellent restaurant. Would definitely go... More
