Multi-Award winning Joe's Downstairs is well known as "The" place to dine on the west coast of Phuket. Serving an ecclectic mix of only the freshest ingredients availble, 2008/2010 Thailand Chef of The Year Aaron Hooper's menu is well regarded as one of the finest on the island. One of Phuket's most stunning restaurants Joe's Downstairs is located right on the sea with breathtaking views of Kalim Bay and Patong Bay. This backdrop, combined with the all white interior and terrazzo bar make Joe's a great Phuket restaurant to meet friends for drinks, a Wine Spectator award winning wine list, an extensive tapas menu, and exquisitely prepared main courses ranging all the way from The Famous Joe's Burger to Live Maine Lobster.

We went to Joes Downstairs during our visit to Phuket and can hands down say it was the best dining experience we had on our trip. The food was amazing, the staff super friendly and standard of service high. The decor is very fitting and the views spectacular. Can't speak highly enough!!

Fab little place to dine with attentive and friendly staff. Wonderful setting. There was a spectacular fireworks display the night we were there. Quite possibly most nights! Relaxed atmosphere.

Excellent service and good selection of meals. Arrived with a group of 6 and we were looked after until we left. This place has a nice outdoor setting though not much of a view at night. Food was good but not great. Meals n drinks were a bit pricey but we expected that. Wouldn't dine here often due to prices... More

We went here on our last night in Patong. We were sick of all the local restaurants and wanted something a step up. This was it, we arrived in the afternoon and enjoyed cocktails through to sunset, the views are amazing and the staff are terrific. It cost us $250 baht in a tuk tuk from Patong. This is beach...

What a wonderful place to visit. We went there for dinner on our last night in Thailand. Although quite pricey the setting, service, staff and food more than made up for the prices of food and drink. My favourite place by far. If there were 10 stars I would rate this restaurant a perfect 10.

My husband and I came here for our 1 year anniversary and we were not disappointed!! At the end of the meal he swore it was the best food he'd ever had! I tended to agree. We hadn't made a reservation and showed up at sunset thinking we'd get a table with no view. We were so wrong! They gave... More

Everything about this restaurant is great. The food is delicious, the view is amazing and the service is excellent. It is expensive for Thailand, a couple could easily spend over 2000 baht on dinner and drinks but in saying that, a restaurant of this calibre with a similar view in Sydney or any other western city would cost a lot...
