ANISE Tapas & Bar in Phuket

Spanish Tapas in Bang Tao Beach

ANISE Tapas & Bar is permanently closed

ANISE Tapas & Bar is a popular Spanish restaurant at the Boat Avenue Shopping Village entrance in Cherngtalay on the way to Bangtao Beach. The restaurant is beautifully designed and well-located, perfect for meeting friends for a relaxed and casual tapas dinner.

The restaurant is run by a long-time resident who is also very well-known for managing some of the most luxurious hotels in Phuket. The team is well-trained and attentive, and the bartender is skilled.

Why try ANISE?

ANISE is where many locals and expats love to end a hard-working week and celebrate Friday with hearty food and drinks. It is also a perfect way for travellers to end a day on the beach when they want something different from Thai food. The restaurant is extremely popular and has become an instant success; therefore, reservations (in normal times) are strongly recommended to avoid disappointment.

You can sit inside the cosy dining room or outdoors on the terrace near a tiny garden. Wherever you sit, the atmosphere is welcoming, and you understand instantly why so many people choose to enjoy dinner with friends here. We sat alfresco on the inviting white sofas and comfortable chairs. We were instantly caught by the relaxed atmosphere, and the restaurant’s charm set the mood.

As appetisers, we started with a rather large selection of small dishes, as we do with tapas. Order many small plates, accompanied by their excellent sangria, taking our time, having fun talking and laughing the way a tapas dinner should be.

We were getting full but wanted to have a Marisco Paella (with shrimps, mussels and squid 310 Baht) because a good paella is difficult to find in Phuket. As for dessert, we treated ourselves to the recommended Churros (120 Baht) and a delicious Crema Catalana (120 Baht)

The menu is, of course, much longer than this, with so many tapas and other types of Paella that we have already planned a second visit to ANISE.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
