We had dinner here and it was absolutely beautiful. Excellent service, beautiful views. If you are going for dinner book early in the evening, before 7pm so you can soak in the beautiful views before night fall. The food was the pure simplicity of Europe, simple flavours, just beautiful. We both had the calamari to start, then my hubby had... More

Based on the Trip Advisor reviews and advertisements in the Bangkok Airways magazine in the plane and a booklet with best eats in Samui we decided to stop at The Cliff. The view is supposed to be stunning, so we were looking forward to it. When entering and looking for a nice table to sit outside we were asked not... More

Loved the ambience here. The restaurant was right on the top of a hill, overlooking a cliff and the ocean. The view was as good, or even better after the sun set because they turned on beautiful lights all the way down the cliff. Plus, the food here was astonishingly good. We ordered shrimps as appetizer; fettuccine, Risotto and two... More

Unfortunately Samui has more than it's fair share of higher end restaurants that just don't live up to the hype and survive by targeting tourists who will never return. Thankfully The Cliff isn't one of them and their standards are truly world class. The Piri Piri chicken was truly excellent and the mussels in White wine were fresh and extremely... More

We went here to celebrate a friends birthday. Wanted something just a little more special than the rest. Got that definitely, amazing views, great food, and good service. A little more expensive, but as they say you don;t mind paying if you get the food and service

Came here with a large group attending a wedding weekend who all wanted European food! Not my choice. It was stinking hot & we sat outside under the fans & looked out to a beautiful view! I really wanted Thai food but none in the menu & chose the calamari. A HUGE plate was served & I certainly could've shared... More

We were recommended to book a table for this restaurant and were offered a choice of either 6pm or 8.30pm and chose the latter. However, when we arrived very early, expecting to wait, we were shown straight to our table. There were only 2 other tables occupied and we had expected the restaurant to be full. Nice setting but very... More

Wow. Fairly expensive for Thailand but really worth it. Absolutely delicious food - especially the mussels for starter! Nice restaurant, modern, nice decor and fantastic food. Definitely recommend!

Nice restaurant located between chaweng and Lamai, situated on high elevated rock face with beautiful sea views and an ideal location for a few sun downers, easily accessed from the road behind, great food and a definite "to do". Nice romantic ambience. Try the mixed sea food platter for 2. Don't let the travel put you off, well worth the... More

This restaurant looked very nice as we drive past,so thought we'd try it. Food was average, service was good & the setting was lovely,but it was expensive. The bill was £150 for 2, we each had a starter& main, but only 1 pudding. 1 glass of wine & 2 cocktails. If the food had been outstanding the bill would of... More
