We visited Dining on the Rocks twice during our most recent stay in Bophut, having been there several times on earlier visits to Koh Samui. We never fail to be impressed by the creativity and execution of the food, and the level of the service. Only comment is that the kids meals are VERY small, and we always have to... More

The setting can not be beat. Very romantic dinner. We opted for the 10 course tasting. clearly 10 courses is to much food, but we did it anyway. The food was very good, but not excellent. Some dishes were awesome and some were just good. The overall experience was great.

Location, Location, Location! A full moon in sight with nearly no wind or clouds made it the perfect evening to dine outside on the NW tip of Koh Samui. This was our honeymoon so we splurged on the meal and did champagne to start followed by the simplicity tasting menu. We opted not to go for the wine pairings and... More

Over rated place. The staff had attitude and didnt like the fact that you had to use the golf cart to get around! glad we didn't stay there. The bar/seating area was too dark and they only had day beds to sit on, not really appropriate in the evening. The drinks/cocktails were just like any other bar. Would not go... More

We visited Dining on the Rocks for our anniversary tonight. Whilst the location is beautiful, the meal was extremely disappointing. This is certainly not fine dining as it claims to be (in fact our meals were cold and either undercooked or burnt!) and I would recommend not wasting your money as there are equally lovely views elsewhere on koh Samui....

The ambience and location of this place is fantastic and definitely feels superb, however food is a disappointment and frankly not worth the kind of money they charge. There are only set menus - -5 and 3 course. The choices for vegetarians are limited and the sea food is just about good. We had the three course meal and must... More

The menu is a fusion of Thai meets western cuisine and was great. An excellent setting for a romantic dinner.

I visited Samui in September on a purely foodie trip, so Dining on the rock is on my list as it is voted the most expensive ones on the island. I couldn't fault the scenery, the view from the dining platform is amazing, although the floorboards are girls' heels' worst enemy. I think the chef is trying out a Michelin... More

I have read the mixed reviews on this restaurant and decided to see for myself what it was really like. The location is stunning, but we were disappointed with our meal. We started with cocktails. Mine was really watery and my husband had to ask for an extra shot of coffee to give his cocktail more oomph! There was the... More
