La Gritta Phuket is a fantastic Italian restaurant at Amari Phuket Resort, ranking Number 1 on our 15 Most Romantic Restaurants in Phuket. It has a unique view on the entire Patong bay, food is great, service is smooth and efficient and mostly it’s all about the atmosphere… So who said there were no romantic good restaurants in Patong Beach?
As soon as you set foot in the restaurant, you will get into a sweet mood. A gentle breeze flows freely across the wooden terraces on the edge of the sea and the immense swaying coconut trees add an irresistible tropical touch. We strongly recommend you to book in advance if you really want to sit by the edge of the balcony, everyone is obviously running for these few privileged tables overlooking the sea. However, the terraces being built on multiple levels everyone can enjoy stunning views from any table.
As we are small eaters, we just had a beef carpaccio, clam chowder soup, black ravioli lobster (made with squid ink) and a risotto with mushrooms. Everything was lovely, but the apple tart for dessert was not as good as we anticipated, more apples and less tart would have been welcome.
Overall it was a lovely dinner in a beautiful location and setting. Make sure you arrive around 6pm or earlier to enjoy the last minutes of light with the colors of the sunset fading away in the bay. Once again, better call Amari Phuket to make a reservation at 076 340 112.
If you come from Kata or Karon beach, drive to the beach when reaching Patong, then turn left toward south, cross the unmistakable large bridge at the end of the road and Amari Phuket is right there. Usually there is no parking problem, right next to the lobby. If you come from Kamala or Phuket Town you’ll have to cross the whole of Patong through the middle street (Rat U Thit Road) to catch that same way to the beach. Most of Patong beach road in one way.
Location: Patong Beach, past the bridge at the southern end
Open: 10 am – 12 pm
