These great Phuket restaurants with a view offer some of the most romantic dining experiences on the island. They're at their best around dusk, when the setting sun paints the sky and surrounding landscape with beautiful colors.

    As Phuket is a hilly island, the opportunity to appreciate a good meal while enjoying outstanding and sweeping vistas is almost unparalleled in the country. The Phuket restaurants in our selection offer a range of cuisines, panoramas and costs per dish, meaning there is something for most visitors.


    360° Bar

    Layan Beach

    360° Bar at The Pavilions Phuket is 2-level venue offering a hilltop vista of Phuket's lush greenery, along with a generous swathe of the Andaman Sea. It has a white-topped bar that's set off by its black slatted stools, with a gigantic white sail covering it all. The deck-floored restaurant's upper floor is where you can find the kitchen, bar and washrooms. All of this, with the lights of Phuket twinkling down below, makes 360° Bar a pretty impressive dining location.

    Kamala Beach

    Diavolo at Paresa Resort is centered on a red-and-gold color theme, with plenty of richly hued wooden parquet flooring and matching walls. It spills out onto a large terrace with decking and spectacular 270-degree views out over the Andaman Sea and a huge banyan tree to the side.

    It’s all simply done but the overall effect is strong and pleasing to the senses. The kitchen rustles up quality Italian dishes and, if you’re so inclined, you could even order a couple of Thai side dishes.

    Location: Paresa Resort, Nakalay Road (Millionaires’ Mile), Kamala, Kathu District, Phuket 83120, Thailand

    Pan Yaah in Kalim is a good choice for one of the best restaurant views of Patong Bay and the town itself. Established for many years, it’s a great little place for romantic and intimate sunset and evening dining.

    The restaurant is set above large granite rocks and diners can hear the surf breaking below, which all add to impress diners. Pan Yaah is largely made of dark wood and a fan-cooled terrace overlooking the sea is its coveted spot.

    Sunset Grill Restaurant

    Kamala Beach

    Sunset Grill Restaurant’s name tells you pretty much all you need to know about this excellent hillside restaurant at Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort. The open-sided eatery serves up high-quality grilled dishes with a stunning backdrop of the sun sinking into the Andaman Sea, all in a chic and romantic setting.

    Location: Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort, 16/12 Moo 6, Kamala, Kathu, Phuket 83150, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 6pm to 10pm

    Phone: +66 (0)76 231 234


    Tunk Ka Cafe

    Phuket Town

    Tunk Ka Cafe is one of Phuket's best sunset-viewing points and one of the only great Phuket restaurants with a view that isn't on the west coast. Khao Rang enjoys vistas over the town and the island’s ‘backbone’ of north-to-south hills – every bit as prolific as a coastal sea view. Serving typical Thai dining, you’ll enjoy an evening here above Phuket Town.

    Location: Khosimbi Road, Muang, Phuket 83000, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 11am to 10pm

    Phone: +66 (0)80 821 1500


    The Royal Kitchen

    Patong Beach

    The Royal Kitchen, a Chinese restaurant at the top of the Royal Paradise hotel, has a much sought-after 180-degree view out over Patong and the Andaman. Looking down from this lofty perch, Patong below looks like a toy town.

    Seen from offshore, Patong has a highly distinctive skyline. The 2 tallest buildings dominating this skyline are the Patong condominium and the Royal Paradise Hotel.

    Location: Royal Paradise Hotel, 135 Rat-U-Thit Rd, Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83150, Thailand

    Open: Daily from midday to 2pm and from 6pm to 11pm

    Phone: +66 (0)76 340 666


    After Beach Bar

    Kata Noi Beach

    After Beach Bar is the most popular of the sunset bars and restaurants overlooking Kata Noi Beach. It's on the hill road between Kata and Rawai, directly above Kata Noi Beach. Here, the sun setting into the Andaman is accompanied by an almost non-stop flow of Bob Marley tunes on the stereo.

    The venue's décor consists of wagon wheels and raw plank shelving, with Thai and (of course) Jamaican flags. No décor, no matter how well thought out, could possibly outshine the views out over the Andaman Sea to the horizon. While the view is excellent, the food is on the simpler and cheaper end of the spectrum.

    Location: 44 Kata Rd, Karon, Muang, Phuket 83100, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 9am to 10pm

    Phone: +66 (0)84 745 9365
