“Best food and atmosphere in Patong. Must try it, more than once!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

My gf and I spent at least 3 full days (breakfast, lunch and dinner + drinks) at Sun Beach Cafe as we fell in love with the place immediately. We were in Phuket for 8 days only, but we couldn't help returning at the Sun Beach Cafe quite often. The french owner, Mathias, set up a very exquisite restaurant right on the beach. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is perfect for a breakaway from the hectic Patong. Here are some details including the food we enjoyed.

Food: Beef sirloin with pasta and mushrooms (Mathias, did you find a fancier name for the dish already?). This was the best meal we had in Phuket. Salmon steak. Salads. For early birds we also recommend the breakfast (eggs, baked beans, mushrooms, bacon, bread with jam) at Sun Beach Cafe. No need to wake up early anyway, you can also enjoy breakfast at noon.

Atmosphere: Great location right on the beach. As other customers already mentioned you can enjoy a nice breeze, feel the sand beneath your feet, relax under the warm lighting.

Service: Mathias and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. They remember your preferences after the first visit (like which snack you prefer between olives and pizza, for example), they regularly and politely wait on you to ensure nothing's missing.

We will definitely visit again next time we come to Phuket. It really is a pity there are no rooms for rent at the cafe, as it would have been a great improvement to our trip!

“Great food, friendly staff, great value for money- they make a real effort”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Very very nice restaurant and hard to choose between it and Sabai next door. If you want a great Pizza (travelling with a child!) then the pizza here is very good indeed (no mean feat in the tropics).

The Thai food is excellent, very reasonably priced, very good service, fanatstic location. Child friendly, would thoroughly recommend to all.

High quality ingredients, well cooked, nicely spiced, drinks excellent....much better than the Beach Bar next door....

Excellent location - literally on the beach if you sit in the outside area. Their food are good as well, we had the sweet and sour pork and chicken satay. Food and drinks are very reasonably priced, and the service is friendly. Nothing fancy (it is not fine dining), but then again, you do not come to Phuket for that.

We will definitely go back.

This place is great right on the beach and the service is good and friendly. It is the best price we found in Patong and you get a great sea breeze away from the heat of the streets.
