Very close to the Patong beach yet far away from the crowd and noise. It has a lovely sea view, good for landscape photography. Food was amazing. We regret that we tried it on our last day in Patong. Decor is also very nice and modern. White gives you a feel of space which combines well with the perfect view.... More

After roaming around for a nice quiet place to enjoy Lunch, you need to visit Joe's. Placed on the ocean view. The service was up to standard with a little delay from the kitchen. Would recommend the Shrimp cocktail, the Cod, the pulled pork with chips and the mini tacos. If you're ever in Phuket, Joe's is the place you... More

My wife and I went on Saturday, 22/10/16 as part of our Luxury Escape deal so we had a special menu without prices. It comprised a six course sunset 'Global Gourmet' tapas degustation dinner. Unlike other dinners of this type we found the meal filling with just a small room for dessert and drinks to wash it down. We thought... More

Very nice food. We got a tapas selection. We actually order a second round of the white snapper dish as this was our favourite. Little expensive but worth the money as the food was exceptional. Cost about £130 for 6 cocktails, 6 tapas & 2 desserts... But we were there about 4 hours so the price wasn't so bad!

The place is situated near Patong Beach. Very good for drinking and coffee place. The place is next to Thai restaurant so you can order some dishes from there too. Try the garlic crab Noodle is amazing... also the fried squid and chicken wings. Sugar cane signature cocktails is good..

I walked past this place twice, glad I finally went down because its a fantastic location on the beach with a nice high class casual vibe. I had the crab cakes which where delicious.

We stopped into Joe's on a whim walking past for lunch. WOW-what a find. Completely exquisite food, exceptional service and magic views. We had a light Tapas of Soft Shell Crab, grilled chicken skewers with lime, sashimi tuna tartar and pesto calamari. Stunning, simply stunning. On top of that, the Manager Thanin was one of the friendliest and most knowledgable... More

My husband & I visited Joe's on our last night in Phuket & we couldn't have picked a better place. The restaurant has a lovely white theme & fantastic views of the ocean & rocks. We had four tapas dishes which were delicious & very filling. Staff were efficient & friendly. We will definitely be back!!!

I had been to Joes about 10 years ago, before TA and when it was more of a trendy bar for local expats than a pure restaurant. Now the bar vibe was not so evident but the stunning setting, getting almost sprayed by the waves crashing on the rocks below, took centre stage. The service was perfect but the cooking... More
