“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stayed at the six senses resort and visited the dining on the rocks restaurant during our stay.

The setting of the restaurant is beautiful, the tables are not crowded together so everyone can enjoy the surroundings, although I would book in advance if you want a table near the edge of the platforms.

We opted for the 10 course taster menu with accompanying wines and it turned out to be one of the best meals we have ever had. Every course was well thought out and perfectly presented. The way the menu is ‘deconstructed’ from everyday meals really makes it interesting. The wines were well suited, especially enjoyed the Rioja.

Yes its not a cheap eat but compared to what you would pay for the equivalent in London I think its very good value. You can also go and eat from the a la carte if the taster menu isn’t to your liking.

Overall one of the highlights of out Koh Samui trip

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

As we were staying at the Six Senses resort and having read the reviews we decided to celebrate our anniversary with a meal at Dining On The Rocks.

We cheekily chose a combination from the two "5 on the rocks" menus and were not disappointed. All five courses were excellent, but special praise to the chef for the scallop course and the dessert which were outstanding.

We had booked the private open air "table 99" for the event, but due to rain this was not possible. The staff were excellent and closed off a part of the restaurant for us so we could still have that intimate dinner we had sought.

The service was outstanding (many thanks to Kwan and Ka-Fair for their attention throughout the evening) and made our special day very special indeed.

“An unforgettable experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

It's hard to describe just how good this restaurant is. I have eaten at many award winning restaurants, but this is my new favourite. It is not cheap (and certainly not cheap by Thailand standards), but the food, wine and location are extraordinary!

“Dining in paradise”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

My wife and I went here for our special honeymoon dinner. Food was excellent, staff were friendly and hospitable, beautiful setting! We opted for the 10 course 'Simplicity' menu with corresponding wines, which, although expensive, was worth the extra money. My only slight criticism was that the tax and service charge were not included in the price on the menu, which meant we had an unwelcome surprise when the bill came, but that can be forgiven.
