We love this place. It was truly our favorite dining experience from our trip to Koh Samui. So much so, that we went back a second time for lunch. Yuri has created a beautiful experience and atmosphere in her restaurant. The restaurant is one of casual comfort with most seating available in the open air. Details like the candle lit... More

My wife and I were traveling around Koh Samui on our moped when we came across the entrance to a small bar. Thirsty, and in need of a comfy seat and refreshment, we walked through the gate. WOW! what a view! We arrived at around four PM for a quick beer and glass of water. We stayed for tapas, wine,... More

My wife and I stopped here for an afternoon snack. We decided to try the desserts. The food was presented very well and tasted great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The view is sensational.

We are back in Samui for the 2nd time and Ad Hoc is still our favorite spot. Wonderful ambience, superb service and great food - a winning combination.

We visited this restaurant as it was recommended by our villa owners and we weren't disappointed. It is in a beautiful setting, overlooking the sea we enjoyed watching the sun go down over a 'happy hour' cocktail. The staff very very polite and helpful. The Italian flavour to the menu was unexpected but very nice I had the crab and... More

Lovely to sit and watch the sun going down, and then see the fireworks and lanterns being let off along Fisherman's Village. The food here is... More

What a beautiful and serene setting - make sure you arrive by 6.15 and watch the sun go down and the the flocks of white birds skim the water . At times we felt that we were back in a taverna in Corfu with the beautiful view and the perfectly chosen guitar music playing in the background. The wasabi mash... More
