We were expecting much more. The shrimp cocktail was 3 prawns which were over cooked and mushy. The tiger prawns came with carrot sticks and cucumber slices- really no effort and disappointing. The house glass of French reserve white wine was supposed to be $250 Bhat but they charged us $375 per glass and it was undrinkable, like drinking flat... More

We stumbled across On the Rock when looking for somewhere to have a beer with a beach view in the afternoon, we couldn't have picked a better spot! After 3 hours chilling that day we also came back two evenings to eat! If you want a beach view table in the evening you need to book, we didn't as we... More

An oasis of calm from the madness of the main strip of Karon, this restaurant is an "institution" in the area and seemingly has it is all including -A superb position, entered through botanical type gardens on a descending raised wooden platform, arriving 'on the rocks', beachside overlooking the bay of Karon, - extensive menus ( albeit overdone on the...

My husband booked us a table overlooking the water for my birthday. When we arrived our table was set with a candelabra. I ordered a very spicy curry dish with chicken and my husband had a cashew chicken dish. Both were very delicious and not a morsel was left behind. To my surprise, the restaurant brought out a delicious coconut... More

I made a reservation a week before to ensure getting a table with an ocean view and we had an enjoyable experience having dinner and looking directly over the beautiful Karon beach. The staff was attentive and volunteered to take pictures of us. The food was decent while some may find as standard. It would be good getting a light... More

Visited because we saw very good reviews. Security at the parking lot was friendly, walking us all the way to the restaurant. View and atmosphere was amazing. Staff started out friendly and attentive but as soon as they got a few tables they were terrible. Our dinner was delicious, and we were looking forward to desert, but it took over... More
