We decided to try the nearby Rockpool Samui restaurant last Sunday. The food was great and very friendly staff attending to us. We decided to book for their Valentine dinner and we really enjoyed it. Stunning ocean front location, tasty 5 course dinner, fantastic value for money and the service was attentive and good. We will recommend the Rockpool Samui... More

We stayed at this hotel. Food was disappointing and service not good. Great view. Cocktails were buy one get one free for most of the day. Good value. I wouldn't recommend dining there if you are not staying at the hotel.

My family of 11 people booked here as it was advertised on the flight in offering 10% discount. The views are amazing even if the night we went was drizzly. The staff at the lobby were helpful and offered us a ride down on the buggy as the hill is very steep down to the restaurant. The staff at the... More

4 of us went for an early dinner. We started off with two portions of deep fried squid with our one for one cocktails. After that we had salmon tartare, Thai sea bass salad and twice the daily sevice (very fresh and sumptuous). For mains we shared 2 of their rectangle pizzas! All was excellent! The serving staff was very... More

We had two meals at this restaurant, Location is wonderful on the cliff top with the waves crashing down, Food on the other hand is average. We had one meal complimentary as we were staying for a long time and as everywhere else is miles away it was convenient to have another meal on one of our lazy days,

Even though it was dark it was a fantastic setting. I can imagine it must be even more fantastic during daylight. Seating is large sofas which I loved. Staff was very attentive and the food was great. Portions were large and we ended up with too much food but it was nice to try a lot of different things.

This place was advertised heavily on our flight to Samui, so we thought we'd give it a try. The reservation staff were most accommodating - we had to shift our booking when it rained one evening. We were driven down from the main lobby to the restaurant in a buggy. The view was spectacular. We glimpsed the sunset at 6pm,... More

Really lovely location with a great view of the sea. The food was very good. Not cheap but definitely worth it given the location.
