This was our first visit this year - but we've been coming here for the last 6 years. It has lost none of its charm - the views and ambiance are brilliant. Yuri the owner is a brilliant host and are always made to feel as if we have one home. The staff are very attentive. The food is special.... More

We ate here last night, decided not to have a large starter so chose the brochetta, very nice. As we've eaten mostly Thai food since we've been here, tonight I chose the lamb shoulder which was super tender, cooked for ten hours! Other choices were beef teriyaki, again very good and the sea bass, excellent! The restaurant is more expensive... More

This was recommended by a Facebook friend who had visited Koh Samui last year. The hostess is a very charming japanese lady who couldn't have been more attentive. The location is wonderful being on the beach and the atmosphere is peaceful and very romantic. The food is top notch, the best european food we had on the island. Can highly... More

We came across Ad hoc by chance and found that it was a beautiful setting right on the beach, and then to our surprise the waitress apologises for not serving Thai food. Not a problem. U had the most amazing slow cooked prime rib. Was better than at home.

Absolutely amazing!!! Revisited the restaurant twice in 4 days. The view and atmosphere is very calming and tranquil, the service is speedy and meets every need and the food is ridiculously good. A bit pricey but great value for money.

Missed 'Happy Hour' (4-6) but never mind. The service was top class. Polite attentive but not intrusive. How European restarants could learn from this. The food was alittle poor to begin, fried calamari (why not grill it, so much better) but the staek was brilliant, medium rare as requested and as tender as I have evr experienced. My colleague had... More
