Description: Multi-Award winning Joe's Downstairs is well known as "The" place to dine on the west coast of Phuket. Serving an ecclectic mix of only the freshest ingredients availble, 2008/2010 Thailand Chef of The Year Aaron Hooper's menu is well regarded as one of the finest on the island. One of Phuket's most stunning restaurants Joe's Downstairs is located right on the sea with breathtaking views of Kalim Bay and Patong Bay. This backdrop, combined with the all white interior and terrazzo bar make Joe's a great Phuket restaurant to meet friends for drinks, a Wine Spectator award winning wine list, an extensive tapas menu, and exquisitely prepared main courses ranging all the way from The Famous Joe's Burger to Live Maine Lobster.

We came here for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed our drinks and tapas. The lobster quesadilla was divine. It was very quiet at lunch but this was ok with us! Service was prompt and friendly. The location overlooking the sea is lovely. It is a bit pricey - especially the wine.

Pleased you enjoyed the food. All Wine is expensive in Thailand due to taxes. Quality wine is even more expensive. It's difficult for us too.

I visited this establishment about 12 years ago and was just as impressed then as I am now. It may had different owners then but the chic style of this place hasn't changed. Situated precariously along the beach rocks, Joe's Downstairs is a perfect place to enjoy a high end meal or just enjoy cocktails with appetizers or a dessert as you gawk at the view. We had eaten earlier in the day so we just enjoyed cocktails - margarita on the rocks and passion fruit mojito. Both were superb and we almost ordered more but we had a fair bit of driving to do so we decided to refrain. Our apple pie a la mode was less delicious but still acceptable. I would like to visit in the future for a proper dinner to determine if the food is still delicious as it was 12 years ago. Will be back !

If you want a proper cocktail and some good food, with a view and a more upscale environment that the rest of Patong Beach, Joe's is a place you must try. Every trip to Patong I have dinner and drinks there at least one time. Make your reservations for 6 pm for the 6:30 sunset.

The pulled pork and chips is amazing, so is the crab cake. Also the bar selection is so much better than most of Patong's bars. Dress nice, have a nice night out.

Tapas was excellent , main course for the duck was good but the only sad thing was the lamb loin, it is very disappointing when the rice came undercooked , it is like eating a raw rice. Should informed the chef that pilaf rice it is a middle east style of cooking rice and full with flavour but not a hard rice .
Hopefully the management can reconsider about the menu
