  • Climax Restaurant in Phuket

    Rooftop Poolside Diner at Absolute Bangla Suites in Patong Beach

    0

    Climax Restaurant is an unpretentious yet stylish venue located on the fifth floor of Absolute Bangla Suites at the end of Soi Rico, off Bangla Road in Patong Beach. Climax is the only rooftop poolside restaurant in Patong and its central location, right above the heart of Phuket’s nightlife, makes it the perfect place to start from if you plan to party in Patong with friends.

    Open since 2009 and under British management, Climax is set on a 500sqm terrace divided in three parts: bar and pool on one side, al fresco dining on the other and an indoor dining room for people who prefer an air-conditioned environment. Getting there for sunset is a must as the view over Patong skyline and bay is great and you can also enjoy the 16:30 – 18:30 Happy Hour!

  • Atmosphere & Décor

    After walking through the hotel’s reception, the lift takes you to the fifth floor/rooftop where the first things you see are the interior dining room on your left and the open kitchen to your right. A few steps lead you to the terrace which, apart from the pool side is covered with a tarpaulin – allowing guests to dine here even under the rain. A large circular bar stands to your left, in front of the swimming pool, and the al fresco dining area to your right.

    Climax Restaurant can accommodate up to 100 diners. With comfortable sofas and chairs around rectangular and circular tables, a counter with high stools at the front of the dining area for hosts to enjoy the sea view, all settings are well thought out and modern. There is unobtrusive and soft lounge and house music in addition to the sound of the sea breeze, a whole world away from bustling Bangla Road five storeys below.

    Food & Drink

    Simon Armstrong, the manager, knows how to handle all aspects of a restaurant: as a former chef with a long experience in Tenerife (The Canary Islands), he goes for the freshest products available in Phuket and considers interaction with guests as important as the quality of the food. The actual chef – Khun Sirt – also has long experience in some of the best eateries of Thailand (he used to be an executive chef at Hilton resorts).

    Fusion is the word that best suites the type of cuisine served here. The restaurant has two different menus for lunch and dinner. I sample raw tuna with mango salsa for a starter, then a salmon steak with lime butter sauce and steamed vegetables. Both these dishes are a perfect example of fine dining as the preparation, taste and setup of the plates are equally enjoyable. A homemade chocolate fudge brownie with fresh fruit completes an agreeable dinner and quality red house wine helps to wash down all these delicacies.

    On the drinks list you’ll find a large number of cocktails, mocktails and smoothies which are just fine to accompany sunset at the end of the afternoon. Summing it up, Climax restaurant is a recommendable venue and a great sundowner spot at affordable prices when compared to the quality of food and service. It’s a breath of fresh air in the middle of an infamous area…
