Ok first off this is probably the most expensive meal you would eat on the island but the entire experience is about awakening the senses and wow was it incredible. The menu clearly states that the meals are not as they seem, so just be open when you order fo example chicken burrito is slices of Crispy skin chicken with little piles of vegetables and sauces and the burrito is ground up so that it adds texture when mixed with everything else. The flavours, wow! Wagu Beef was incredible and Campfire dessert was breathtaking. Layers of chocolate and grilled melting marshmallow. I need to go back right now.

We booked table 99 at Dining on the Rocks as part of our honeymoon in Koh Samui. The setting is absolutely beautiful and the staff look after you so well. We picked the 'experience' menu which is 10 courses, which was spread over about 3 hours. The food was amazing and totally different from anywhere else we ate on the island. At the end the chef came out to speak to us which was a nice touch. Overall we had an amazing time, however it is pricey so would only really go for a special occasion.

Dinning in the rocks is a unique experience, I m a great fan of Soneva resorts and my choice to try this restaurant was absolutely correct.
Location: The best located restaurant
Time: Deepens from season but you must go 30'' before sunset
Service: five star
Food: Excellent you must try the tuna on the appetisers, chicken burrito, risotto, salmon dish and for dessert
you must try eggs and bacon! & various chocolates! note that the name of the dishes is not what exactly
what you expect for instance the burrito is a normal plate with unique taste the same for egg and bacon dessert
Wine list: You definitely find what you looking for.
Privacy: All the privacy you want and you can also choose to eat to a more private table
Romance: I cannot think a more romantic place
Price: Is note a cheep restaurant but you know where you are going to and for what you eat is very very reasonable
Please note that the Dinning on the rocks is a not smoking restaurant almost anywhere
I will definitely go there again!

Unfortunately a storm was brewing on the evening that we dined on the rocks. We were looking forwards to a romantic meal, so I was not impressed when I was offered a table by the bar, then next to a family with grizzly children. I was eventually offered s table which was quiet and overlooking the ocean, nice but not perfect as it was next to the loo.

We picked the 5 course tasting menu with matching wines. The courses ranged from average to very good but nothing was outstanding. Service was attentive & friendly.

Overall we had a great night with bill coming in at around 8000 bht. Expensive for Thailand but a pleasant evening.
