Where Are Phuket Most Romantic Restaurants?

There are many romantic restaurants in Phuket to celebrate Valentine’s Day in style and to compile the list of the best; we had to try a lot more than 15! Here is probably the most expensive page we ever wrote, but it sure was fun and sweet! Those restaurants were among the best dining experiences we ever had in Phuket. Keep in mind that some of those restaurants are very popular and if you want to sit by the seaside, it is recommended to book in advance. Phuket is a romantic destination!

We know there are more amazing restaurants than just this list, and we keep trying and will add them as we discover them, but this is our selection based on real experience. We paid for our food, and we came unannounced. You also need to understand that two experiences might differ, you might not enjoy a place as much as we did if your choice of food is different or if something in the air isn’t quite right 🙂 However, we are pretty confident that these restaurants are great places for a tête-à-tête. Enjoy!

5. Kata Rocks

Kata Beach

Kata Rocks Restaurant

Kata Rocks restaurant serves a great Mediterranean and seafood cuisine. Try to come a bit before sunset to enjoy some of Kata Rocks famous cocktails at one of the tables by their iconic infinity pool (they even have their signature gin). As the sun disappears, the pool is lit, and the atmosphere becomes even more romantic, a perfect setting to enjoy their superb cuisine. The restaurant is open to outside guests so even if you are not staying at the resort, you should try to save one evening for a sunset dinner (6 pm to 10 pm). And if the sun doesn’t shine that day, it won’t even matter; the views are always incredible! Read more

On a clear day, you can even see all the way to the famous Phang Nga Bay! (Apparently, you can even see all the way to the famous Phi Phi island, but we were not that lucky). A great wine list complements the excellent food, so get ready to experience some good grand crus. [ Read more ]
