“Fabulous food”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We ate here twice during our stay at the Danna, and the quality of the food was fantastic on both occasions. Can't understand the negative reviews some people have given, for us the food was amazing. Probably not the best food we've ever had in a restaurant but very very good quality.

“More show than go.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Completely don't understand this restaurant's number one rating on TA when there are others such as La Sal at Casa Del Mar. Maybe it is because La Sal is included in Cenang rather than Langkawi. Anyway in my opinion La Sal was/is incomparably better.

We went here for lunch after visiting the cable car as it is some distance from our resort at Cenang. We were the only diners there which had the advantage that we could sit at the best table overlooking the marina and of course there was no problem with the service.

We ordered an entree and a main each. Overall the presentation was full-on fine dining but the flavour was anything but. My lobster rasam soup was lacking in flavour and substance and my wife's eggplant pate tasted like something squeezed out of a tube on flat bread. My duck breast main was not the least bit succulent and my wife complained that her masak lemak vegetable main was watery and was lacking in both variety and flavour.

This is an OK restaurant but our high expectations were definitely not met.

“Fabulous !!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

You will regret if you don't visit this place ! This is the best restaurant with amazing food presentation! They will welcome you with a very warm and make sure customers really enjoy their dinner. I had made a reservation to celebrate my colleague's birthday and she was very happy! They give you a glass of champagne and a greeting card for her. Thank you to Mr. Peter & crew, especially the waitress that I do not remember her name also serves us with very great! Surely we will return to Privilege Restaurant. Thank you very much!

“Elegant dining”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Up market contemporary restaurant - A little formal so if you want a more relaxed atmosphere then one of the restaurants downstairs would be better. The food was good, quite pricey compared to other places.
The owner was dining in the restaurant and came to talk to us, where are we from. etc, it was a nice personal touch. However, the staff started packing up all the empty tables and chairs around us as we were finishing our meal which was quite off putting, it was a late meal, we arrived around 9.30pm and this was then around 10.30pm ( they close at 11pm) but it was very off putting and to be honest spoiled the meal a little as we ended up pretty much ion our own next to a pile of tables and chairs!. It was a shame because the restaurant had been recommended to us and as it is a higher end priced place it was disappointing in the end.
