We got there at 4pm only waited about 15 minutes to go to restaurant. Was very hot until sun went down at 5.30pm, however were shaded with umbrellas. Bin tang and cocktails, great finger food and great service. Prices on par with Australian restaurants. Worth making the effort, got some great sunset photos.

Dear 'Gaylene R',

Thank you for your review of Rock Bar, I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your experience, especially the cocktails and tapas, and the value-for-money. We look forward to welcoming you back – to avoid the heat of the day, you may like to consider visiting at night next time, the bar is open until 1am and the night-time ambiance is quite different, with stars and moon shining above, spot-lit ocean, and the lights of local fishing boats twinkling on the horizon. Magical!

Warm regards,

Manik Sudarsana
Food & Beverage Director

As not guests in the hotel, had to wait in line for a while but it was worth!
Amazing view and nice drink! Really had a lovely time there!
There was one thing that was lacking: they only had finger food.

I felt most sorry for the staff who were swearing into our overpriced drinks. We were grateful to be given umbrellas to ward off the heat, until we realized we had to hold themselves and they were black which just intensified the heat.

Beautiful setting but unfortunately not worth it.

Absolutely beautiful, you have to go at least once, the Ayana gardens and pools look magnificent as you meander through the resort to the waiting area for the cable car, a short steep ride down, this place is stunning, take lots of money, it's worth it, best bar location I've been to in the world.
So far.

Arriving at the Ayana resort at around 4pm, there was already a line to go down to the rock bar, it took about 20 minutes waiting for our turn. Minimum spends to sit in some seats, but in reality it does not take very long to reach the target. Very attentive staff, umbrellas supplied for some much needed relief from the late afternoon sun. We ordered a wedges snack from the menu, it was delivered very quickly and was hot and fresh. Our drinks also came promptly and were good spirit measures. The surroundings make for a unique experience, not forgetting the DJ in the cliff face, playing great music. Our sunset experience was just wonderful, we had a great time and would visit again.
