A seafood restaurant by the sea managed by The Batam View Beach Resort! This restaurant can seat up to 200covers, live fish, crabs and other seafood available at site. Nice and romantic ambience

Place is reaaly incerdibly locaated - in fact it is location all of us look for holiday romantic evening. But then food comes. Food is tasteless, overcooked and overpriced. The best dish was Bintan beer. Waiters are very slow and lazy what was surprising because until that evening I meet only friendly and helpful staff in Indonesia. Taking into consideration that there is nothing at the facilities I would recommend to take a taxi and go to nearest town for good dinner.

It would've been a great view daylight, because it's located over the beach. But I had dinner there so no view at all. I ordered chicken kungpao, blackpepper stone crab, and roast groper. All delicious!!!

We stayed at Angsana Resort and found Kelong a nice relief from the resort.

It's a big restaurant on stilts over water. Decor is nothing to write home about but the food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Easily half the price of the restaurants at Banyan Tree or Angsana.

We enjoyed the steamed fish, gailan and fried rice.

Our group up came back because we enjoyed it so much.

I went to the kelong with a big group of friends and the bill came up to SGD $810 for 16 persons so it was expensive for Indonesia standard. Luckily the food was good and seafood very fresh. The honey crab and steamed fish were excellent!

Chinese tea served was not good though, low grade of tea.

We walked out to view the stars after the dinner and it was a spectacular sight! We had a full view of the sky filled with stars so thumbs up for the experience.

The free shuttle to the kelong from the hotel was helpful. Will be back should i visit Bintan again. :)
