Brasserie Phuket is an institution when it comes to fine dining and epicurean pleasure in Phuket Town. Founded in 2010 by a Belgian national, Alain Tabruyn, and his wife, Brasserie Phuket has been serving local gourmands and visitors an authentic gastropub cuisine with some of the freshest ingredients one can find on the island.
The venue has an outside bar and a small terrace, which are perfect to grab a drink early evening watching the crowd moving along Rassada Road, and an inside bar completed with a large dining area, which reminds us the typical bistros you would find in Europe. At the bar, a selection of more than 30 different beers, mainly from Belgium, competes with a well-balanced wine list and perfectly crafted cocktails.
The service is well worth a mention, as the staff speak English fluently and are very professional, similar to what you could expect from a five-star resort around the world.
Food wise, the Brasserie Phuket never disappoints and serves an array of culinary delights, such as perfectly cooked Entrecote Cafe de Paris, Belgian fries, frog legs, duck liver pate, and a selection of fish and seafood, too. The plating is delicate, without being too fancy, and the portions will satisfy even the hungriest fellow. For the sweet teeth out there, their selection of desserts will ensure you end the night on the right note.
As there is no parking on site, we recommend looking at some perpendicular street, such as Bangkok Road, and to cover the short distance on foot.
The Brasserie Phuket recently opened a second restaurant, named Brasserie Yacht Club, located on Ao Yon Beach, on the south-east coast of the island. The food offer is similar to the original restaurant, though the setting is obviously different from being right next to the beach.
