“Very good food with a fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

A restaurant with very good food and excellent service! And the view from the restaurant is fantastic so you have to book a table around 18.00 so that you can enjoy it berfore it gets dark. We had the australian tenderloine and it was exellent. The prices are reasonable compared to other top restaurants. We will go here again the next time we are in Koh Samui.

“Very good food 🍲 ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This restaurant is very good. The staff is professional and so nice in beautiful surroundings. The have a very interesting menu with a good variety of both Thai and Italian food. We eat there 2 nights and tastet both the Thai and Italian food, and both nights was amazing. The food is just so tasteful, and nicely presented on the plate. After dinner I had a drink: The Thailander (just an outstanding drink you have to try). I definitely can and will recommend this restaurant.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Excellent food, service and views. Quite a few of the cliff top restaurants are quite pricey but this wasn't. Very reasonable and great food and service.

“Disappointing ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Having heard raving reviews about this restaurant we were really disappointed. The views are of course beautiful, the setting nice and the Aussie singer guitarist was great.
We ordered 2 entrees and 2 mains. 1 out of the four dishes was good and the others borderline terrible. The seafood marinara was tasteless and used FROZEN seafood. We actually couldn't eat it. The waiter asked if we liked it and we said we didn't like it and that was that. It was Taken away and nothing else said. The salmon tartare was fishy and chopped to a mince. Not how tartare should be served at all. The best dish was the snapper ravioli. Delicious. But one good dish doesn't create a good experience. Especially when our bill came to just under $100AUS.

Dear Valued Guest,

I am sorry to read we haven't met your dinning expectations. We take great pride using the freshest products and our seafood pizza is a dish we usually receive positive comments about, as well as the tartare, my apology if it hasn't been to your liking.

Regarding the waiters they should have reported to me or the floor captain like they have been trained to, so I apologise for that, and all the team have been reminded the importance of reporting any customers complaints or comments, therefore we note you did appreciate the setting, atmosphere and our live music.

My apologies once again for your disappointment, and we hope to see you again at Dr Frogs,

Warm Regards,

“Fantastic place, great view, but not cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Two families, took 6 kids, and had a great night. It certainly is not cheap, especially if you order wine, but that is a universal theme in top end joints in Koh Samui.
Outstanding view (make sure you book an outdoor table on the terrace), and engaging friendly staff. The chef came out and joined us for drinks after the meal, nice guy
The food overall we excellent. Great pizzas for the kids, and outstanding seafood for the rest of us. There are two chefs (one for Thai, the other for European), and we really only ate European this time, but the Thai appetisers were very nice
Would happily return there
