The views are amazing and I guess this is what attracts most people. The service is good too. But the food is very average for the price your paying. I'd rate the food higher if it was a third of the price. But you have to look at the total cost. I guess there adding 60% on for the views. I took £200 for 2 people and we had to choose cheaper food options and only have 2 drinks to make sure I had enough money. We was in a party of 12 or 14 and some on them live here. We all felt the views was amazing but the food and prices not .

Thank you for your review.

Our prices are based on the fact that all of the produce we use is either imported or of the finest quality.

We have not raised our prices in the last 4 years but due to the ever strenghtening Baht our guests from other countries are seeing a massive difference in price as they calculate in their home currencies. What was reasonable 4 years ago is now seen as unreasonable because of the exchange rate yet we have not increased our prices at all.

Unfortunately we are not able to adjust our pricing according to the exchange rate.

We are very pleased to hear that you did enjoy the food and the view. And we do hope you will visit us again in the future.

What a lovely place! What amazing food! The seafood platter is to die for! Prices are kinda exorbitant though! The bill amongst the three of us was almost 300$ & that was just one dish & a glass of wine!

Thank you kindly for your lovely review. We greatly appreciate it and are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience at The Cliff Bar & Grill.

Our prices reflect the fact that we use imported or the finest quality ingredients to make our dishes.

We have had the same prices for the last 4 years but due to the current strength of the Baht our prices seem exorbitant due to the exchange rate. Unfortunately we cannot adjust our prices according to the exchange rate.

We thank you again for your wonderful review and feedback it is extremely valuable to us.

Enjoyed dinner here on Christmas Eve. Good steak and seafood and a decent wine list. Given they operated on a two seating service, they didn't rush the meal. The service was very good.Not cheap but well worth a visit.

I was looking for a special destination to celebrate my wife’s birthday and all the reviews pointed me towards The Cliff. The restaurant is situated in a lovely location elevated high above a scenic bay and well away from the busy strip of other local eateries. I have absolutely no complaints about the quality of the food, the meat was freshly imported from Australia and cooked well. However this is an extremely expensive restaurant and the quality of service did not match the prices or the 10% service charge, especially when this added to an already expensive food tariff. My other gripe was the wine card. I fully understand the costs of delivering a bottle of wine to the table in this part of the world, but what was a very ordinary bottle of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon, definitely did not warrant an additional 1000baht in price from what is charged in other restaurants nearby. ( Before the additional 10% service charge). I would suggest a bit of additional staff training and a more realistic pricing of your wines.

Thank you for your review. We apologise that the service did not meet your standards and if you would like to elaborate on what you found lacking we would greatly appreciate your feedback, cheyna@brmunns.com.

Our pricing is due to the fact that all of our food is either imported or of the finest quality. Unfortuantely alcohol import taxes are extremely high in Thailand and all wine is imported, the prices reflect this.

We thank you for your feedback and greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your views, this allows us the opportunity to consistently improve our services to our valued guests.

This restaurant was SO good that we went back a second time! Great selection of food, a wonderful wine list, very friendly and professional service, all in a truly beautiful setting overlooking the bay and the ocean.
This has to be one of the best restaurants on Koh Samui and my wife and I felt privileged to be able to eat here.
If you are ever on the island you MUST try this great restaurant, you won't be disappointed!
