We visited this restaurant twice during our stay and both times had a lovely time. We tried several other restaurants during our stay in Koh Samui but Dining On The Rocks was on a higher level from the rest. Everything was top notch, service, food and of course the view from the restaurant. Of course, it is not cheap but... More

Never would expect that from a Six Senses Resort. It began with a very poor service, followed by a very poor food

Best dining experience on Koh Samui, couldn't fault a thing. The service, food and most certainly the view were outstanding.

Let's just get it out there - this restaurant is ridiculously expensive. The view is magnificent, the food is pretty good, but the bill is astronomic. For a bill that large they really need to work harder on service and the food needs to be superb. Great location though.

We enjoyed a private dining experience at Dining on the Rocks for our honeymoon. Each course was paired with a fantastic wine. The service was impeccable. Thanks to our server, Eak, for taking such good care of us.

This is our 7th or 8th visit to Dining on the Rocks on our annual family holiday to Koh Samui, and it rarely disappoints. The food is sophisticated and well-executed; the service is both polished and warm. They were challenged on this visit by the horrible weather and still managed to make it a most enjoyable night. The children's menu... More

It's a nice restaurant with great service and a beautifull view. However, for the price of an average menu here, you can dine in michelin star restaurants and still have something extra to spend. The prices don't match the food, so you're paying a lot for a beautifull view, but that might be worth it for some.....
