My husband really wanted to go to this restaurant and we were left disappointed. The view is stunning the food was very good however it is a minimum of 3 course per person, it doesn't say this anywhere on line. They were trying to push the 4,5 or 6 course with wine pairing. Also continuously filling water glasses up which... More

Dear Louise C, Thank you very much for your constructive feedback. I am very sorry to hear that you left disappointed.

My husband and I headed to dining on the rocks on a Saturday evening. We didn't have trouble with getting a reservation but highly recommended so u can get a good view. Head there for sundowner and good food, at a premium price.

Beautiful view, great service and delicious food. A bit expensive compared to other restaurants on this island, but it was all worth it and we got really full.

We ate here last night and had an unbelievable evening. This is a dining experience as opposed to just a meal. The views over the sea are spectacular, the food and wine is excellent and the staff are a real pleasure, particularly the very friendly sommelier. We had the four course tasting menu and a couple of extra glasses of... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy dinner at dining on the rocks as a relatively large group (20). All our orders were done over a week in advance to help for smooth service. We were slightly separate from the rest of the dining guests but not any further from the kitchen to the table. Drinks took the best part of... More

When arrived at the six senses hotel which hosts the restaurant we went to the drinks bar first to watch the sun set( amazing view if it's a clear sky which it was). We headed over to the restaurant by a golf style buggy. We were greeted by the nicest staff possible. Our waiter was very attentive and made the... More

Overall a terrific night. Location - fairly remote, at the North-eastern tip of Koh Samui. Ambience - Amazing ! The tables are located on a series of platforms that look back to Bophut and out toward the Gulf of Thailand. If you want to make a serious impression on your better half, this is the place.
