This restaurant offers delicious food at a great location. Overlooking the sea at the end of the day isn't too bad! Really great amazing! But it's a bit pricey and not large portions (we're used to larger portions). So for what you get I think it's a bit too expensive, comparing to Orgasmic which is a few hundred meters further...

Outstanding service from friendly and attentive staff! Well presented and extremely tasty food; different to usual Thai. Definitely worth a first and second visit.

My husband tried the lamb burger and said it was the best one he's ever had! I had the fish burger (really good Sea bass) and it was fantastic. The presentation of every dish helps you love the food even more. Very friendly staff as well. Highly recommended!

So we arrived and found ourselves the only people there which wasn't a good start. However, another table arrived which improved the atmosphere. I'm still astonished at how quiet the restaurants are sometimes in high season. The menu was a bit bizarre and random to be honest, maybe that's why it's called Ad Hoc?! But, the food was very tasty,... More

Stunning location literally feet from the shore, we have dined here a number of times over the years, and it's never let us down. Very welcoming and professional staff. We were promptly served our drinks and offered menus. The menu is not huge, but still left us with plenty of great dishes to choose from, and they also offered kids... More

We visited Ad Hoc due to the reviews on TA. It's a bit off the beaten track, but a much nicer walk if you walk along the beach from Fishermans Village. The road walk is a bit scary, have to walk virtually on a busy road. The views at the cafe are very nice. Anyway, the food..was good. Lunch menu... More

We arrived a bit after lunch time but the staff did not make any issue out of this. Instead they made us feel welcome and were happy serving us some light dishes. They were all delicious. Lovely building, all a bit rustic combined with terrific food, right next to the sea. Wonderful!
