I've been to Ad Hoc a number of times so felt it was about time I wrote about the experience. The food was actually so good on Thursday that I went back on Friday with different guests.

Ad Hoc Beach Cafe has been amazing... Top quality food at reasonable prices (slightly more expensive) with a beautiful view and awesome customer service. By far the best food that we had here. You should definitely add it to your to do list when visiting Samui.

Good food but a little expensive. Staff were really helpful as we had two young children but it was much more expensive than I thought it would be.

We love this Cafe! Every time we come to Koh Samui we make sure we visit. The views of course are second to none but the food, wine, cocktails and service are perfect!

Nice setting, but a bit strange as there is bared wire around the garden areas, certainly not safe if you had small children with you. A bit on the expensive side, for what is offered.
