“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

I had my lunch there two days ago. Very friendly waiters offered me a fantastic seat with a nice ocean view. In advance I purchased a Groupon voucher and they accepted it immediately. Started my lunch with a delicious salad followed by a marvelous chicken breast with risotto. I really enjoyed the lunch with two glasses of white wine while listening to relaxing lounge music from Cafe Del Mar. Excellent service!!! Only one little thing needs to be improved. Waiters should let other guests know, that this amazing restaurant isn't a playground when their kids play around. This was very annoying, so I changed my table.

“Over price”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

This place is too expensive. Do not go there before you make sure you have enough money.
They have a good atmosphere with live performers nightly. But the price for a 500 ml bottle of water is about 21 RM.

“Great place for sunset cocktails”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

We just enjoyed some cocktails here, they have comfy big seats really close to the beach and you can sit here, enjoy your drink and watch the sun go down
We also had some snacks which were delicious. Service was very good and if you go between 5 and 7pm it's happy hour and you get 20% off.
It was a really lovely place to spend some time, chill out to the music and enjoy a drink as you watch the sun go down.
Quiet part of the beach too, would recommend

“Great Music”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

A nice variety of food here. If the weather is good, pls sit outside. It can be very memorable evening. My family & I did it on a full moon day and I can't ask for anything more than this. Everything was so very perfect. They also have a Quatro Band. Very entertaining and my son (11yr old0 doesn't want to get out of the site even after midnight. Ha Ha Ha!

“bad service”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Hi Everybody,

I went from The Datai Langkawi to see the sunset after few people suggested that the CBar at Pelangi Meritus is really nice place to enjoy, which is truth, but apart of the sunset all went wrong.

1) we choose our table and were waiting for a service staff for 30 minutes
2)service staff bring the menu.. to return another 20 minute to take the order
3) 20 minutes to bring our drinks which were not served cold and the ice was half melted
4) payment 30 minutes and at the end the waiter bring my credit card to another table

From arrival till the end we were served by 4different waiters, all of them without a clue of 5star hotel service, the manager's excuse was they are busy..maybe 20 guest is far to much for him?!

I love the setup of the whole bar and sunset, even my guest did really enjoy, but such an embarrassment which the Pelangi service delivered is unacceptable and really disappointing.

Hope the managment can look into this matter so the guest can enjoy their facilities including a 5star service which they paying for.
