Le Versace Restaurant Lounge Bar is now permanently closed.
Le Versace Restaurant Lounge Bar is certainly a class act: settled on the hillside of Phra Baramee Road, it is the highest open-air restaurant in Patong Beach. It features an extremely stylish décor; and it serves a sophisticated French cuisine prepared with the freshest ingredients. The views out over the town and beach are spectacular and it’s definitely worth getting there for early evening, when the golden rays of the setting sun reflect and almost animate the golden theme running throughout this unusual three-storey restaurant.
The most singular characteristic of Versace is that every single piece of décor, whether it be a gold-sprayed Champagne magnum, the splendiferous Middle-Eastern sofas, Turkish-like throw cushions, huge vases, cutlery, plates, tables, lighting – absolutely everything – comes from the House of Versace, right down to the golden lion on the roof.
Le Versace’s dining room and the lounge bar with terrace are set on two different floors. Each of them can comfortably accommodate up to 40 guests in their respective styles of opulence. The restaurant is set in an open-sided room while the bar features a covered and an al fresco area, both of them sharing the outstanding views over Patong beach and the bay.
The outdoor terrace is the ultimate sundowner spot and the perfect place to unwind in good company while sipping one of Le Versace’s signature cocktails (all of them at 450 baht ) such as Diamond Forever (vodka, Martini white, fresh mint, mangosteen, diamond-shaped ice) or Royal Mojita (Bacardi, brown sugar, lime, fresh mint, red fruits, Prosecco, lemonade).
Gourmet connoisseurs will be happy to know that this restaurant is run by members of the international Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, world-renowned for their excellence and culinary expertise and the talent here is evident in the form of cleverly-prepared dishes such as pan-seared slice of duck liver with banana chutney and tamarind honey sauce (550 baht Starter / 950 baht Main); salmon marinated with kaffir lime and yellow lemon (650 baht Starter / 950 baht Main); and lamb hind shank slow-cooked for 12 hours, served with young vegetables and potatoes gratin scented with truffle oil (1,280 baht), just to name a few.
Le Versace also has several set menus with an interesting top-end option of paying 2,500 baht (plus service charge) for four starters, one main, and one dessert. Versace is definitely an intimate place, with only a handful of tables and a limited wait staff. It’s the ideal restaurant for a romantic date, although given the overall size of the place it could also be a great place for a company event or a private party.
