We were amazed the first time when they seated us on the balcony overlooking the beautifully lit rocks and water, but then we realized that every seat in the restaurant had an amazing view. We ordered tapas including the tuna, wagyu beef tacos, soft shell crabs amongst other things. The tuna could have used some type of sauce because it... More

The burghers at this restaurant have always been exceptional but they have also added some brilliant additions including fantastic tuna this year. With a lovely setting overlooking the sea, great food, excellent wine choices and friendly and efficient service, what's not to like?

I went to Joe's because I heard that they had a good burger. Not just a good burger for Thailand, but in general, and being from the U.S., I had to give it a go. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This thing came out with smoked gouda, bacon, and avocado slices and was so big I couldn't... More

We had a fantastic dinner. The staff very nice. The prices are a bit higher than most other places. But for us it was worth it.

Went there for dinner for my birthday as a special treat and for the price was very disappointed. We were squashed on a table at the end of the verandah, the service was very slow and they were not very attentive, had to keep waiving at staff to get water topped up which I thought was poor as they were...

Recently we had an amazing lunch there. Crab cakes were so tasty as were the lobster quesadillas. We had 3 dishes and a dessert and 2 non alcoholic drinks each and coffees. It was pricy for Thailand at 3500B but worth it as were able to linger over our food then walk a few minutes to a beach for a... More

dinner is top notch, pricey but every thing great, lunch menu is the same as the dinner, which makes the place empty for lunch, and too pricey for that time of day, tapas for lunch no, but for dinner or happy hour ok. but no happy hour here, i will go back for dinner , but never lunch..

This really is a lovely restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. We got there just as the sun was setting... Absolutely perfect setting with lovely views out to see. Good service and amazing food. A bit pricey by Thai standards but well worth it! :)

The location is wonderful, overlooking the bay, but especially for the price, the food was just okay. (We asked for bread, and they had to go next door to get some.)
