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!!

This is our second time on Samui and this was our first stop. We visited 16 times during our 3 and half weeks and each time was amazing. We have dined in may other restaurants throughout Samui and this never fails to disappoint. It is a short walk from the Fisherman's Village and offers breathtaking views of the bay. The... More

Just returned from lovely meal at Ad Hoc. View is beautiful and staff are utterly charming and helpful. They prepared a special dish for my toddler with no fuss. My sea bass was cooked to perfection as were my french fries. Cocktails were great and loved the chocolate fondant for dessert. Great staff, wonderful views, interesting menu and will definitely...

We had several meals at Ad Hoc, all of them very good. The Lamb burgers for lunch were excellent and we had to return for a second time for dinner a couple of days later to please our adult children! Even though the burgers weren't officially on the dinner menu, the staff made a special plan...really appreciated! A lovely setting... More

We love Adhoc, the food, the setting and the ambience are always superb. The staff are always friendly and attentive. The location is great if you want a quiet meal away from the hustle of Fishermen's village and Chaweng. And it is a short walk from Fishermen's village. We always return to this restaurant when we visit Ko Samui. Tim... More
