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

Stopped of here on my honeymoon, as my lovely new wife want to have a meal close to the beach. Lovely looking place friendly staff, but we were the only two dining. Ordered a seafood rap, was presented well and I did enjoy eating it, it was very tasty. By evening time though I was felling unwell, mad rush to... More

I could not speak more highly of this place! Very friendly staff, beautiful views and fantastic food! My partner pre arranged for the restaurant to have champagne on out table at arrival, there was a guitar playing in the background as we ate and with only one other table in it seemed as if the restaurant was set just for...

We ended up here right as the sun was starting to set. We couldn't have timed in more perfectly if we tried (which we didn't--awesome coincidence!) The service was friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the calamari starter which was fresh and crispy. I had the sea bass with some sort of pesto, a side of... More

Great place to visit for sun downers, happy hour 6-8pm. Staff are very friendly and helpful, a little on the pricey side but then I guess you are paying for the views and location.

Dinner on a still night, to the sound of quiet classical guitar music, very atmospheric. The location is stunning, on a calm stretch of beach with a view across the bay with all the lights in the distance but none of the crowd or the noise. Starters of carpaccio with truffle oil and stuffed courgette/zucchini. Very light, tasty. Pappardelle with... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants whilst visiting Koh Samui. The restaurant is one of casual comfort with most seating available in the open air overlooking the sea. Details like the candle lit lanterns, open french doors add to an already picturesque café/restaurant. The view of the sea and the light here at sunset should not be missed. We... More

We read the reviews and thought we'd visit a highly recommended place in Koh Samui. We were the only ones there given it was the off season we figured this was ok. The view is quite amazing, perhaps visit for that only and order a water instead of coffee. We drink coffee every day, and this was possibly the worst... More

We always pop into Ad-Hoc when we visit Samui. It's consistently good with great food, ambience and location. They cater for fussy eaters (my daughter) and are always pleasant The cats are lovely too!!
