Kalim Beach has built up a reputation over the years as a must-stop address for those looking for fine dining. With fantastic views of Patong and Kalim and many up-and-coming venues to select from, this small bay is the perfect location to unwind.
Among the stylish venues there are Brush Restaurant & Lounge, Saint Tropez Beach Club, White Box, Acqua and Lim’s. And let’s not forget the pioneer of them all – Baan Rim Pa as well as local favourite Pan Yaah Restaurant.
One newcomer to the Kalim scene is Acqua, a modern Italian restaurant that is the labour of love of Sardinian-born chef, Alessandro Frau. With clean lines, a futuristic design and great views out over the Andaman, Acqua is definitely a leading contender for one of the most aesthetically pleasing restaurants in Phuket. Read More...

Home Kitchen, Bar & Bed is the new project of the multi-talented and hyper-creative Chef Daniel Isberg, whom opened this new restaurant/lounge bar/boutique hotel in the walls of formerly Brush Restaurant at Kalim Beach in the northern part of Patong Bay in August 2014.
Home Kitchen’s arty design comes from the sparkling creative brain of another talented Phuket character – Australian industrial artist John Underwood – who is famous for recycling and transforming old stuff into splendid pieces of art. Set in a two-storey building with the second floor shaped as an upside-down boat’s hull opened to the sea, the venue is highly original and fashionable; a perfect place for a stylish sundowner before a fine dinner prepared by internationally recognized Chef Daniel Isberg.

IndoChine is a fitting name for a company with branches in Phuket, Singapore and Jakarta (oh, and Hamburg, too). IndoChine restaurant in Kalim, just north of Patong, is a very swank looking affair with ultramodern lines and design, a groovy musical backdrop and impressive views out over Patong all the way to Emerald Beach on the opposite side of the bay. With a pan-Asian menu and a decent wine selection it covers a lot of bases. Read More...

A few years ago on the island there was a small and select band of restaurants that hardly advertised and yet each was famous amongst the smart-dining set and well-informed visitors. One restaurant that figured prominently on this elite list is Lim's in Kalim and it's not hard to see why it has this distinction. The 60-cover hillside restaurant encompasses everything a class act should: ultra-fresh food, expertly prepared select ingredients, great background tunes and a sense of occasion in unusual and tasteful surroundings.
