Palm Seaside Restaurant Phuket on Bangtao Beach
Palm Seaside Restaurant, Lounge and Bar is a trendy seafront restaurant set at the southern end of Bangtao Beach. Open for lunch, dinner and beyond, Palm Seaside is an excellent place for a relaxed dinner by the sea and a lounge venue in the evening.
Palm Seaside Restaurant is another successful trendy creation by the nearby Twinpalms Resort. Twinpalms is known to be the Phuket pioneer for all kinds of popular party and dining venues such as the first brunch on the island (Oriental Spoon) and the first real beach club (Catch Beach Club).
You can choose to sit comfortable sofas by the sea, in the central area surrounding by water, or as we did, in more traditional tables and chairs on each side of the restaurant. Palm Seaside manages to create a peaceful atmosphere with lounge music played at the right volume in a very relaxed beach club setting.
The Food at Palm Seaside Restaurant
We had some fresh spring rolls as starters, and they were surprisingly huge. We then enjoyed a seafood platter consisting of 4 imported oysters, two blue crabs (90 baht per 100 g) king prawns (290 baht per 100 g) and Maine lobsters, which seemed to be an odd choice when in Phuket. You can ask to replace the Maine lobster with Phuket lobster (400 baht per 100 g, so expect to pay 2,000 baht) but the price is surprisingly high.
Now If you came to Phuket because of local seafood, we would recommend going to a local seafood restaurant such as Kan Eang or Floating restaurant. However, Palm Seaside offers a pleasant dining experience in a tropical, laid-back atmosphere with fun drinks and friendly service. Palm Seaside is a perfect holiday spot to chill out with your friends.
Open: Lunch: 12 noon – 4 pm, Dinner: 6 pm – 11 pm (last order)
