This is one of the island’s most popular restaurants for lunch, sunset cocktails, dinner or late night drinks for very good reason. Joe’s Downstairs, Phuket’s finest, serves new world cuisine while being located right on the edge of the Andaman Sea offering breathtaking views of Kalim Bay.
This backdrop, combined with the all-white interior and terrazzo bar make Joe’s a great Phuket restaurant to meet friends for drinks. It features a Wine Spectator award winning wine list, delicious appetizers, tapas, grilled delights and live seafood including Maine lobster.
Sundeck seating offers dining options only a few feet above the rocks. Combined with great music, wonderful ocean scenery and a comfortable relaxing atmosphere, Joe’s Downstairs is Phuket’s place to meet, regardless of the time of day or night.
Joe’s Downstairs kitchen is run by versatile American Chef Aaron Hooper, who effortlessly blends seasonings from all around the world to create his unique signature dishes. With its remarkable location, sophisticated setting and delectable cuisine, Joe’s Downstairs should be on the must visit list of every hungry foodie coming to Phuket.
A bottle of wine shared at sunset with Fois Gras Shu Mei with toasted pistachios and tamarind plum sauce is a worthy starter. The many flavours blend together and complement each other to create a culinary masterpiece. Premium jumbo Crab Cakes are also irresistibly good on so many levels – yet another reason this restaurant confirms Phuket’s reputation as a world-famous seafood destination.
For a tasty and filling main course not to be missed try the 400-day aged Wagyu beef tenderloin with leek and potato hash. All said at the end of the day Joe’s Downstairs is in a class by itself. Given the setting and the attention to detail involved in every dish, make this classy restaurant a must visit dining option especially at sunset.
