Sunset from the Lotus Restaurant

As part of this Phuket Restaurant Guide, I would like to invite you to some of the best eateries on this wonderful tropical island. If you’ve just arrived here for the very first time and you have no idea where to start or where to go, then let me show you around some of the best places.

As part of this guide, I’d like to take you to some amazing Thai restaurants as well as restaurants serving some of your typical home from home foods. However, I would not want you to feel homesick while you enjoy that well-deserved vacation you’ve been dreaming of for so long and all the yummy Thai dishes that await you in Phuket.

Bang Tao Beach

Patong Beach

The Baan Rim Pa Piano Bar and Restaurant ~ 4.2 Stars

The Baan Rim Pa Piano Bar and Restaurant (map) provide you with a spectacular setting among shaded trees from their cliff top open air double story eatery overlooking the calm waters of Kalim and Patong bays. This award winning Phuket restaurant specialises in authentic Royal Thai Cuisine which attracts tourists from all around the world.

The piano bar provides the perfect setting for blue’s and jazz lovers and you can select some fine wines from the restaurant’s award-winning cellar. This is without a doubt an outstanding Phuket restaurant.

Ristorante & Pizzeria Napoli is a superb venue for all pizza and pasta lovers. Listen to relaxing music in this fully air-conditioned Phuket restaurant as you are served the best traditional pizzas and pasta in a truly classical style.

Baan Yin Dee Restaurant ~ 4.2 Stars

Baan Yin Dee Restaurant (map)  forms part of a 21 room luxury boutique resort set in superlative surroundings. Relax in an atmosphere with a breathtaking view to die for while dining on mouth-watering tenderloin steaks, juicy peppered tiger prawns and huge grilled lobsters.

As a good tip, try reserving a table early and ask for a poolside or balcony table as they have the best views overlooking Patong, especially at night. But don’t let the view spoil your appetite for the excellent cuisine here. Before I forget and a huge bonus… is listening to Charlie, the Filipino on the grand piano as he pours out one jazz number after another.

Thai Vegetable Curry

Kata Beach

Boathouse Phuket Wine and Grill  ~ 4.4 Stars

Boathouse Phuket Wine and Grill (map) is an internationally renowned restaurant situated directly on Kata beach, making it the perfect setting for all you romantics as you gaze across the tranquil ocean. This eatery is part of a luxurious boutique resort and specialises in fine Thai and French gourmet dining. An added bonus is their extensive range of over 700 labels in their wine cellar. If you decide to stay over at the resort, you won’t have to travel far for a meal.

Karon Beach

On the Rock Restaurant ~ 4.5 Stars

On the Rock Restaurant(map) located at the Marina Phuket Resort, which forms part of a private tropical garden and coconut plantation between the beaches of Karon and Kata. From the restaurant’s open-air terrace, you would have the ultimate view of the setting sun as it disappears over the sea at Karon beach.

This very popular eatery specialises in seafood and Thai cuisine. In addition, during the evening, you will be able to watch traditional Thai musicians and dancers perform. And as the very name suggests, should you be enjoying a leisurely breakfast or lunch, then watching the divers snorkelling in the coral reef below can be quite entertaining.

Please let me know how much you enjoyed your experiences at any of these top Phuket restaurants. I would love to hear your stories and if you like I could add your comments to my site. It would be appreciated it if you could let the owners of the restaurants know that you found their eateries from viewing my website.
