12 Great Romantic Restaurants in Phuket

12 Great Romantic Restaurants in Phuket

Phuket Most Romantic Restaurants

There are many romantic restaurants in Phuket and to compile the list of the best, we actually had to try a lot more than 12! This 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 really sit by the seaside, it is really recommended to book in advance. Phuket is a romantic destination!.

Other disclaimer: this is our selection, we know there are more amazing restaurants and we keep trying and will add them as we discover more gems. 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 10 restaurants are great places for a tête-à-tête. Enjoy!


1. La Gritta Restaurant

Patong Beach

Who said there were no romantic restaurants in Patong Beach? La Gritta at Amari Phuket at the southern end of Patong has a unique view on the entire Patong bay. Add an excellent Italian cuisine at good price and you get yourself a great romantic evening. [Read more]

✩ Location: Patong Beach
✩ Price: Affordable
✩ Cuisine: Thai, European


 

2. Diavolo at Paresa Resort

Kamala Beach

Paresa Resort ‘Diavolo’ was one of the nicest experiences we had lately. Location and setting help a lot in the ranking, but if you happen to also have great food and good service, it is so perfect, you won’t forget this night for long time. [Read more]

✩ Location: Kamala Beach
✩ Price: High
✩ Cuisine: Thai, European


3. The Boathouse

Kata Beach

boathouse-kata-beach

The boathouse in Kata Beach has been a culinary landmark in Phuket for more than two decades. The location is fantastic, the food and wine exceptional, but the time had come to bring this restaurant to new fresh trendy life. [Read more]

✩ Location: Kata Beach
✩ Price: High
✩ Cuisine: Thai, European


4. Da Maurizio

Kalim Beach

Da Maurizio and its well-known ‘Italian dinner over the beach with a sunset’ is not your everyday Italian restaurant, far from that. It is rather expensive, so keep it for a special occasion, but if like us you enjoy quality food in a great atmosphere, you should dine there at least once. [Read more]

✩ Location: Patong Beach (Kalim)
✩ Price: Very High
✩ Cuisine: Italian


5. Mom Tri’s Kitchen at Villa Royale

Kata Noi Beach

Unique and renown since decades, ‘Villa Royale’ main feature is the excellent restaurant, one of the most romantic places on the island. A bit pricey of course so keep it for a special occasion. We went there several times and were never been disappointed. [Read more]

Location: Kata Noi Beach
Price: High
Cuisine: Thai, European


6. Joe’s Downstairs

Kalim Beach (Close to Patong beach)

Joe Downstairs

Located just below the Novotel Patong, Joe Downstairs has been around for years and benefits from an great seafront location and a great tropical white decor that makes it a perfect place for a date with a cocktail or a romantic dinner. Read more


7. Wok Pagoda

Between Kata and Chalong

Wok Pagoda Restaurant Phuket

Wok Pagoda is the latest trendy restaurant in Phuket and probably one of the most significant openings this year. There are quite a few reasons to experience this new place; not only Chef Tummanoon is an internationally recognized chef from the acclaimed Mom Tri’s Kitchen at Villa Royale but the restaurant is also set in a superb location on a hill overlooking Chalong bay. 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). The excellent food is complemented by a great wine list, so get ready to experience some really good grand crus. Read more


8) 360 Phuket Pavilions

Layan Beach

With so many restaurants in Phuket, picking a new romantic dining venue was challenging. But once again, Phuket hides little gems you need to take the time to discover, and Phuket Pavilions is one of them. The food is great but the 360 setting make the venue unusual and lovely. [Read more]

Location: Layan Beach
✩ Price: High
✩ Cuisine: Thai, European


9) Blue Elephant Phuket

Phuket Town

Blue Elephant is not your usual casual Thai dining place. Save this for a one time special dinner and consider it as an experience. This amazing renovated old mansion has the majesty and the grandeur of a house with a long and mysterious history. [Read more]

Location: Phuket Town
✩ Price: High
✩ Cuisine: Thai


10) Panwa House

Panwa Beach

Panwa House at Cape Panwa

Cape Panwa is not exactly centrally located to say the least, it’s quite far from everything but if you happen to go to the Phuket aquarium, you are just next to it. It could even be a nice idea to combine a visit to the aquarium in the afternoon and have dinner at the Panwa house. (The Panwa House is open for dinner only and outside guests are welcome). Read more

11) Tunk Ka Cafe

Phuket Town

tungka-cafe

One of our favourite casual romantic restaurants in Phuket is Tunk Ka Cafe, a long-established venue beautifully built on top of Khao Rang Hill in Phuket Town. Dine on a wooden terrace above town with the nice panorama of the city lights at this price is hard to beat. [Read more]

✩ Location: Phuket Town
✩ Price: Cheap
✩ Cuisine: Thai


12) Gaetana Restaurant

Phuket Town

Gaetana is one of the best and longest established Italian restaurants in Phuket, well-known and recommended by long time residents and Thais. It’s not about the view or the location, but it’s all about Gaetana’s excellent cuisine and very cozy atmosphere. [Read more]

Location: Phuket Town
Price: High
Cuisine: Italian

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 23 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run 2 blogs: Phuket101.net and BangkokUndercover.com, I also manage 30 online travel guides in Asia and beyond, including Phuket.com, Bangkok.com and Bali-Indonesia.com
