Attended with friends while on holidays. Had a great meal with reasonable service, however the smokers extremely inconsiderate and so we were burdened with breathing in secondhand cigarette smoke.

Joe's Downstairs has some amazing views and it feels like you are sitting in the ocean. The drinks menu is quite a bit more expensive than the average Thai hangout but the view and friendly staff makes up for it. The wine we had was...More

So pleased you enjoyed Joes. With regards to the wine. I agree! Unfortunately we pay serval taxes on wine and the first one is 400%, hence the ridiculous pricing which is beyond our control.

Our location is outside Patong and is quite spectacular right on the water and this does add to overall costs. It certainly is cheaper to eat in the streets of Patong but you won't normally get the same views, service and food quality.
