“Expensive and not spectacular”
Reviewed October 9, 2012


They offer gluten-free food.


Staff is at most avverage.
You have to double check if they understood what you ordered.
Choice of food is low.
Prices are very high for the food offered. We ordered italian gnocchi and they served us some very small amount of gnocchi and they were kinda shrunk. You could count it in 5 secondes. I was finished with the meal in only 2 miniutes, really ridiculous.

“Beautiful spot to dine and very attentive service”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We loved it at Ad Hoc. I had a pasta with Italian sausage and it wa delicious with some chilli which I asked for. Sensational. My husband had the grilled king prawns, chips and salad and raved how they were cooked just right. Nice bottle of chianti red on the balcony. The garlic bread was light and fluffy and really good. And..... They paid for our taxi home to the hotel. If you ring and book they will either pick you up or get you home afterwards. We were really impressed by that. Taxi ride to get there is 400 baht.

“fantastic burgers”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

first off. i am not a fan of burgers. having said this i just fancied one.

hand made burgers, sun dried tomatoes, basil salad and fresh onion. how can this go wrong?

best burger i have ever eaten and cannot think about eating another anywhere else but here, where they set the standard.

lovely view over fisherman's pier. spent time taking photos of local woman gathering shellfish on the margins of the sea.

staff chatty and pleasant

“Paying for the view”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for happy hour cocktails (be careful, only until 6pm) and for dinner on 23 September 2012. The view from the terrace over
the sea and towards Koh Phangan is very nice. The food is very tasty,the portions rather small though. Cocktails are ok, but only worth the money at the happy hour rate.

The food is good but rather on the high end of the price scale.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Ad Hoc was recommended for happy hour and a lovely sunset view, but they have changed the timing so that happy hour ends at 6:00, before sunset. Beer and food were expensive
