Where to Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Phuket?

There are many romantic restaurants in Phuket to celebrate a special day and to compile this list of the best ones, we had to try a lot! Those restaurants were among the best dining experiences we had in Phuket. To enter this list, the restaurants must have great views or great atmosphere, good service and of course, excellent food.

We know there are more amazing restaurants than in this list, and we 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. This is probably the most expensive page we ever wrote, but it sure was fun and sweet!

Keep in mind that some restaurants are very popular, especially on Valentine’s Day, so if you want to sit by the seaside, it is recommended to book in advance.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994.
