Joe's Downstairs is located at the northern end of the infamous Patong Beach, accessible from the road down a romantic white-washed staircase to a verandah-style dining area, before stepping out to the very scenic open-deck dinning space. It's a very expensive restaurant by Thailand standard (allow for BHT 3000 per head). Since most of the expense is for the wonderful... More

If you're looking breathtaking sunset view, combined with delicious food and drinks, then Joe's is the place you need to go. Originally booked 25 people at lunch, we had to change it to dinner due to unforeseen circumstances. The staff at Joe's were incredibly helpful in changing the time for us. There was never a tone of annoyance which was... More

A tapas grill bar and a great take on fusion food is how the place was recommended to us . We got one of the best seats overlooking the rocks and beach . A great mango and passion smoothie was followed by some soup, chicken skewers , calamari and amazing salmon . The food and service were just amazing and... More

Wife and I visited for lunch and had a great meal (joes burger is great recovery food after a night of over indulgence!!). Loved it so much we went back for our last lunch outing of the week which we always reserve for the best place we've visited during the holiday. Staff were great and music was good too -... More

We never get a complaint about the burger, except sometimes people say it's too big, but it's great. Thanks for visiting us twice. We obviously made the right impression. More

We ate here on our first night in Thailand. They fit us straight in without a booking (inside not outside though which was understandable). We had the tapas and ordered the pulled pork, baby back ribs and spicy chicken wings - they all were delicious. The mojitos are YUM deffinately recommend them.

We just walked in, no reservations, and we were lucky to get a beachfront table. The view and the breeze were amazing. The service was soooo good too, that we were thoroughly impressed at how keen they are to detail. They gave me a separate chair for my purse, they have a waitress just walking around and seeing if you... More

Came here for our first night in Phuket and what a fantastic little gem it was! We managed to get a table outside overlooking the beach, the staff were so friendly and made the experience even better! The food was perfect (starters and main course) would definitely recommend to anybody!

Fantastic drink spot - highly recommend for whatever drinking occasion you can think of and infinitely better than going out on the night life in Patong - avoid Bangla at all cost. Joe's is fantastic for both romantic outings and catch ups with your girlfriends. The stark contrast between Joe's and its sister restaurant upstairs is awesome - two sides... More

The great thing about having three restaurants next to each other is the variety. Baan Rim Pa Patong serves Thai food and has an old world Thai feel, Da Maurizio Italian is dark and romantic and sits on the rocks and Joe's is bright, white and funky. All offering something different. More

We were on this beach and decided to pop in and have a bit of lunch. The surroundings and views are fantastic. There was only one other couple in the place so we were able to sit looking out over the sea. Unfortunately the menu didn't really seem to cater for lite bites and we were mulling over the tapas...

Sorry you didn't try the Tapas. I am sure you would have found it amazing for lunch. As for the music, not sure what happened there, but I will follow up. More
