We stayed at the six senses resort and visited the dining on the rocks restaurant during our stay. The setting of the restaurant is beautiful, the tables are not crowded together so everyone can enjoy the surroundings, although I would book in advance if you want a table near the edge of the platforms. We opted for the 10 course... More

As we were staying at the Six Senses resort and having read the reviews we decided to celebrate our anniversary with a meal at Dining On The Rocks. We cheekily chose a combination from the two "5 on the rocks" menus and were not disappointed. All five courses were excellent, but special praise to the chef for the scallop course... More

It's hard to describe just how good this restaurant is. I have eaten at many award winning restaurants, but this is my new favourite. It is not cheap (and certainly not cheap by Thailand standards), but the food, wine and location are extraordinary!

My wife and I went here for our special honeymoon dinner. Food was excellent, staff were friendly and hospitable, beautiful setting! We opted for the 10 course 'Simplicity' menu with corresponding wines, which, although expensive, was worth the extra money. My only slight criticism was that the tax and service charge were not included in the price on the menu,... More

We decide to go here for dinner on the last night of our stay in Koh Samui. We heard good things and it really lived up to them. The location is amazing, a maze of wooden areas with views over the bay. We went for the five course taster menu. We were really impressed with the fusion of flavours, the... More

Fantastic choice, not pretentious in the slightest. Offers a good wine choice with each course which is well thought out. Excellent value for this level of restaurant.

The location is 90% of why most people go to Dining on the Rocks (I assume) - and we definitely took full advantage of this. The menu and selections were amazing, I thought every course was perfect and definitely a lot more food than I was anticipating. I was kind of surprised that our waitress didn't speak better English given... More

We did not stay at the hotel (6 Senses) but we were staying at the neighbouring hotel (Tongsai Bay) and we visited the hotel in the afternoon and booked a table for the same evening. Reception was very polite and booked us a table. In the evening we were given a table on the lower deck and not near the... More

Went here for a special occasion and were not disappointed with the food. We had the "5 on the rocks" set menu and every course was executed perfectly. The style is modern, so may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it for me the balance of great flavour and textures was spot. I would have given it the full... More
