I can still taste the delicious fish made to order I had. I was honestly just looking for somewhere with a great view and ambiance for our last dinner in Phuket. On the Rocks has a great view, great service and amazing food. I ordered a snapper cooked to order, they split the fish (which I've never seen) and seasoned... More

Loved this place - came twice during our stay in Karon. View as you'd expect was lovely and so was the food. Only issue was the service which was very slow. Also several of the waiting staff didn't speak much English. Yes I know I'm not at home, but a restaurant of this standard, with higher prices, should have the... More

Let me first say the atomsphere at the restaurant is fantastic. Down a winding, tropical path to a gorgeous restaurant overlooking Kata Beach. The table settings lovely, the service people friendly. We ordered a simple duck thai dish and a red snapper dish...the duck was okay, the red snapper so over cooked that you couldn't cut with a knife. The... More

Visited On the Rock on our last night in Phuket. Was brought here by a Thai friend who loves this restaurant. She definitely has great taste!! Both the food and the views were amazing. This restaurant would definitely cost twice as much where I come from in Europe ( Ireland). As I was suffering from a little tummy trouble, the... More

I'll start this with some context: we just got back from 2 weeks nestled in the south of a quiet island nearby so arriving in Phuket at the start of the high season was somewhat of a culture shock! We enjoy good food and are slightly more than averagely adventurous - so we've experienced street food to two star restaurants,... More

We ate at this restaurant for my husband's 30th birthday. The place is beautiful, the food was amazing and they have a very good wine list. We had an awesome night, and staff made it even better with the best service and friendliest smiles.

If you are in the vicinity of Karon Beach definitely give On the Rock a visit. It serves an array of dishes both western and Thai and also has very fresh seafood. Tucked away up on the rock (accessed from the beach via a slightly hidden wooden staircase), you feel like you're entering somewhere quite special. We chose from the... More

Make sure you make the effort to find this place. Someone (in the evening) stands on the main road to usher in customers. We went looking as we had been told hold great the food was, otherwise wouldn't have even known 'On the Rock' was there
