Having stayed in Rawai for many weeks now, I've gotten familiar with the array of restaurants and cafés in the area. I've returned to Café Java many times because, although it looks a little bit more upmarket and has some pricey western dishes, surprisingly, it actually has excellent clean Thai food at general Thai food prices. From theTom Yum to... More

Very disappointed. Chicken satay was ok but shrimp rice in pinapple was tasteless. I tried to add some flavour with salt and soy sauce. Would definitely not eat here again.

Visited Cafe Java last night and was extremely impressed. I had the Escargot, T-Bone steak and enjoyed that so much I even had Crepe Suzette for desert! The food was all excellent and the staff were very helpful. The only negative was that the Red Wine was very cold and not enjoyable. I would recommend sticking to the beers! Overall... More

French cuisine - delicious. I took a beef carpaccio and mozarella salad - very tasty. I could feel a high quality ingredients. My husband ordered a steak and I am pretty sure it was one of the best steak on Phuket. And they have alived our 3 years old daughter! ;) Cafe Java - we will come back!

Only stayed in this restaurant for a quick drink. Had a look at the menu and the prices seemed really reasonable and the other customers seemed to be enjoying their food. The staff were really friendly so we would definitely come back. The restaurant is on the corner of the street so there are some loud noises with people wizzing... More

Alan invites you to one of the most romantic and peaceful restaurants in Phuket. Come and enjoy fine French and Thai cuisine in our restaurant in the heart of Rawai beach.

So, whatever the dining experience you are looking for, be sure you can find it at the Cafe Java located at the heart of Rawai in Phuket.
