“GREAT VIEWS AWESOME HOUSE TUNES AND AMAZINGLY FRESH FOOD”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

Each year l drop in to The Cliff, and so far l havent been disppointed. The quality is next to none. The restaurant itself is in a great location for viewing amazing sunsets and watching the waves roll in. The house music is also perfect for putting you in a blissful mood while enjoying some tasty food washed down with a cocktail or few. My favorite is the bruschetta anchovy, tapas calamari, thai salsa chicken (MY FAVORITE SALSA IN THE WORLD...chilli hot tho' so be warned if its not a favorite of yours) the tapas chorizo is more like salami which l was expected it to be more sausage like and not cold sliced discs but it was good to share on a whole. the lemon sorbet is also good. They make great mojito cocktails too. thanks again l will be back. Jade

“Awe Inspiring View”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

This is one resturant you shouldn't miss. We've been going here for several years and I'm always happy coming here
Beautiful ocean view, spectacular for lunch but also the most romantic place for dinner.
The staff is attentive and warm.
Make sure you book ahead of time to get an outdoor table.
Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

“Blame it on the greed - not the floods”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Love the Cliff... always loved the Cliff for the past 7 years. Great views and the food is not so bad either. In actuality, it's nothing special. I mean, who can't cook a steak?

A typical visit Cliff includes 2 or 3 Long Island Ice teas, a bottle of wine and a reasonably acceptable steak. It's nothing brilliant but it does the job - albeit it a bit pricey for ANY steak connoisseur.

Imagine our surprise when on a recent visit to the Cliff we were drawn to the peel-off stickers on the steak prices. It seems that with the floods in Bangkok, the folks running this place decided to exploit tourists a bit more by initiating a "price increase due to floods" statement on their menu.

I can only assume the floods in Bangkok drowned a 1000 Aussie cows.. or the management assumes all tourists are idiots.

A foolish call on the cliffside if you ask me. When they rescind this exploitive policy of shame, perhaps we'll go back and spend some Aussie bucks.

As a side note, I purchase AUSSIE and NZ beef on the island all the time and have a record of wholesale prices for the past year and there is no notable difference in price. On top of that, as I sit writing this at the Bondi Bar - another Cliffonian establishment, I note no difference or moderation to the price of AUSSIE beef.

What a scam.. I mean shame.

“Great view”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Awsome view especially around sunset. Great food, friendly staff worth paying a little more for food and drinks than other places in samui if not for anything else but the view.
