Joes downstairs has a great view and is right next door to baan rim pa. Again this is more expensive than your usual restaurant in Phuket. A short tuk tuk ride up the hill. They have a variety of food on offer. Joes famous burger is great and was a popular choice amongst the 16 of us that were there.... More

This restaurant was across the road from our resort, and we enjoyed a few drinks and tapas here. Stunning restaurant all decorated in white, and it is situated right on the beach, with spectacular views to watch the sunset. The food was exceptionally good. Would definitely go here again

This is the very first restaurant we went to upon arriving in Phuket. We had the place to ourselves being the first customers of the day and due to a huge storm blowing in. It was pleasant and quiet as we sipped our tropical drinks and watched the matching tropical storm roll in... Then promptly moved to a seat farther... More

Amazing location, ok food somewhat random service. The starters were ok. They all carry fancy names and come in surprisingly small portions. I had the very good Tasmanian Salmon as a main. The head waiter did a very good job, sorry to say his staff was clueless at best. Had to wait ages for mineral water and dishes were not... More

Stopped off at Joe's Downstairs restaurant & bar on our way back to our nearby hotel, in need of a couple of cocktails. Very good views, nice setting, but the prices reflect this. Very expensive for what was two very average cocktails.

We came to Joe's Downstairs for the views. It is located right on the rocks looking out to the ocean. Very peaceful place just out of the hustle that is Phuket. We ordrred a range of Tapas and every plate was lovely except the soft shell crab was not really to our taste. Had a wonderful afternoon here and as... More

Attended Joes Downstairs on Sunday 10/7/16 for dinner with close friends. We were seated outside and the view was lovely but that was about it! The service received from the staff was very average and I tried to make conversation with them but it was evident that they were just not interested at all. Very hard even to get a... More
