After seeing the lunch options in Patong we decided to escape for lunch to Joes. It's an upmarket joint, but has great sea breezes and views across the ocean and a great selection of drinks and food. We had the signature cocktail, giant moijito which came out in what could be described as a vase - rather than a glass.... More

Nice view and good staff. The food was ok we tried 6 different tapas. But the all could tasted a bit more. A bit overpriced for what you get.

Title says it all really. Gorgeous outlook to watch the sunset from. Had an espresso martini and a ginger cocktail..both were excellent. Wine is extremely expensive and the cocktails were expensive for Thailand prices but were the best ones I had whilst there. Had three dishes that were ok but nothing special considering again the high price for Thailand. Staff... More

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
