“Nice setting, food not good”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Excellent setting, but we went there to eat and cannot recommend it at all. Cold tasteless soup, soggy pasta and overpriced portions, were made worse by staff who did not seem to care. Doesn't make sense with other reviewers, so maybe the chef had a bad day, but we will wait a while before trying it out again, if just for the nice view.

Dear Sanduquin

Thank you very much for your review and your feedback. Usually we are known for our beautiful and relaxing environment and our extraordinary good kitchen. Due to that we were very surprised to read your comment. I will definitely share your comment with the entire team at East 88 and investigate what happened that very day.

Please accept our apologies for the unsatisfying meal and service served by us. We hope that you change your mind and visit us soon again so we can show you that usually we provide a much higher standard then you had to experience.

Sincerely,
Pascal Frei - East 88 Manager

“...great to chill and dine...”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Located on the east coast of Phuket at Chalong Beach, East 88 Beach Lounge is a great place to chill an dine. The stunning view and the tasty food makes a visit worth. During our stay in Phuket we loved to spend our evenings in this lovely Beachside Lounge.

The food may be a bit more expensive than in other places around Phuket but the range and quality are on a high class level. Different special food events like "Sunday Sundowner" (probably with the best burgers in town) or "Aquaterra" (BBQ with fish and meat) makes you feel like coming back again and again.

“Perfect Place to chill out!”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

I was at East 88 Beach Lounge with my friends yesterday. It provides a very nice atmosphere, beach front with lovely view of small islands and yachts. Sitting by the pool, chill out, swimming and drinking. Me and my friends really had a good time there. This place is the only place that has my favorite drink I found so far in Phuket "Aperol Spritzer". Though it's a very common drink in Europe, but they don't have it in Phuket only at East 88 so I will come back for sure. Thanks to Pascal, a young energetic and helpful F&B Manager, for looking after us very well and Khun Gee, Event Manager, and all staffs. We will definitely come back. Best regards, Indy

“Your own dining sala by the ocean”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Occupying one side of the main hotel swimming pool and with tables at one end perched above the beach, east 88 is al fresco dining at its best.

Now just to clarify, this restaurant does seem open all the time but the kitchen does close between 11pm and 7 am each night. For hotel residents this is hardly an inconvenience as each hotel unit contains a fully equipped kitchen.

Now the food : for what are absolutely superb burgers and pizza, the prices run around $10 per entree. More sophisticated international cuisine runs $15-$20 per entree.
The Thai menu items are cooked to customer preference and are visually works of art.

Of an afternoon, often a private Thai cookery class is ordered by guests. But no matter the time, there is always someone on hand to greet and allow patrons to order a la carte.

At night, east 88 is transformed by sophisticated lighting into the proverbial "in" spot.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

East 88 is fantastic! The food and service is amazing!! I am told that the prices are quite high for Thailand but it think the food is amazing and very good value for money!!
Cant wait to come back to Serenity and East 88 last this year!!

You can eat all day, there is no closed times! (except for weddings, but they still try to accomadte guests)

A big pat on the back for Pascal for running such a Fantastic place! and Chef O (?) for all the fantastic food! and Gun in East 88, she made us feel very welcome and helped us often during our 2 week stay!
