We had an amazing 1st anniversary at the view after reading the reviews here we decided to go and try our look as we were looking for something nice and romantic. The service was amazing and gave us free drink for our our anniversary. They took us to the roof which has an amazing 360 view and apparently if you... More

The good tasty food and selection and the sea view, cool breeze and very attentive staff. We ordered some dishes between us and shared and everything turned out nice. Wish we had ordered some of the more creative sounding food but the main stuff were already very good.

Went last night for dinner for two. Stunning location - although the view for which this location is named is obviously completely absent at night. The set up is fine - looks like a fine dining restaurant in the West, which is what they clearly strove to achieve - especially given the unjustified and unsustainable prices they see fit to...

The food, the view and the service were first rate. It was a birthday celebration, the choice of European and Thai food is excellent. The staff took time to sit us at the best table, inside as the torrential rains came , the breeze was refreshing and the food spicy but not too hot. I still ant work out how... More

I love Thailand so my opinion maybe slightly biased. Koh Samui is like the rest of the Thai seaside areas with beautiful scenery, beaches, etc. What I found out about Koh Samui is that you are not pestered as much by tailors, taxi drivers, stall sellers, etc.

From the food, to the service, to the spectacular view, KC Resort made our Wedding Anniversary an amazing dinning experience. We had a set multi-course meal with each course being nothing less than superb, from presentation to taste, each course was done to perfection! From anniversary congratulatory visits to our table by management as well as the head chef and... More

The setting of this restaurant indeed justifies its name, but be sure to arrive before sunset to take advantage. On the Turesday evening we dined there was a solo violinist which created a nice and elegant ambiance which matched well with the surrounds. Apparently on saturdays they have a saxophonist. Service was smooth and unobtrusive, and Chef Ryan prepares his... More

If you go for the view, lunch might be a better choice as it's dark by dinner. Service is almost intolerably slow, even in a near empty restaurant. Problems started before we even arrived. I asked my hotel concierge to make a booking for a party and when she rang, no one answered the phone. She rang the hotel lobby,... More

Myself and my partner went up to the View for dinner and was absolutely blown away by the experience that we had, the food presented by Ryan was second to none, good service staff being very attentive to our needs. Fantastic view over the Chaweng bay, would recommend dinning around dusk to enjoy the day and evening ambiance.
