Sea Breeze Restaurant & Bar is permanently closed
Sea Breeze Restaurant & Bar is a simple venue located right on Surin Beach. Under British management, this ‘Burger Bar Beach Club’, as it styles itself, is a perfect sundowner spot and is well known for serving Tex-Mex delicacies and some of the best beef burgers in the area. Open in 2012, it brings to Surin Beach a ‘going back in time’ sensation with its toes-in-the-sand dining under the tropical almond trees.
The menu was drawn up by the first chef who opened Sea Breeze Restaurant (it used to be located at the southern end of Surin Beach before). He also happens to be the brother of the present owner and with a Mexican granddad and an American father it’s no wonder that chili con carne, nachos and a large choice of burgers figure on the menu.
As at most restaurants and venues on Surin Beach, Sea Breeze offers two areas separated by the small beach lane. The one-storey building is decorated in blue and white with just a few low tables and a bar and a pool table in the middle of the main room as well as a large-screen TV showing sports. Sea Breeze is one of the venues participating in the Phuket Northwest Pool Contest (a friendly competition between sport bars located in Surin and Bangtao areas).
On the other side of the lane stands the terrace which is connected to the beach by a staircase. The terrace itself is has sand floors, lending a real cool feeling to the place. With seating for up to 40 people and tables and chairs made from durable ersatz water hyacinth, the terrace is shadowed by tropical almond trees and has a bamboo-and-thatch beach bar. The tropical beach atmosphere is further enhanced by Santana tunes and other unobtrusive Latina music.
At Sea Breeze, food quality matters with specially baked buns and Australian beef for the burgers. The menu presents a wide choice of dishes even though the two main specialties here are beef burgers (11 different burgers available!) and sausage dogs, you can also enjoy Thai dishes such as chicken cashew nuts and Panaeng curry. Kids’ meals are also on the menu (plus a free ice cream). As for beverages, you’ll find all the usual suspects here: local and international beers, and a list of 20 cocktails, all of them at a reasonable 180 baht (March 2013 prices).
Sea Breeze Restaurant & Bar can organize private parties and barbecues and can also arrange parasailing for you on Surin Beach. Free Wi-Fi available; just ask the staff for the password. All in all Sea Breeze is a cool place to dine at with a great sunset view.
