We stopped by just seeing the seafood waiting to be put on BBQ. The sight was really inviting. We didn't leave dissapointed ! The place is rather big, with lots of staff, but not that much attention I'm afraid. But that aside food was really mouthwatering. We went for mini lobsters, red snapper and squids. All grilled to perfection. The fish accompanied by lemongrass and ginger, very tender and juicy. The squid was just right, with charcoal aroma. But the real discovery was mini lobsters, in our opinion more accessible (less messy) and even more tastefull then big ones. With a 10 RM per 100 g price tag they are a bargain ! The real drag? Not a single glass of cold white wine to wash it down :( of course I know the regulations in Malaysia, but other places seem to find a way.
Well, after the dinner we moved about 20 meters to have a cold one...

the restaurant is just by the beachside. Nice location with sea view and variety of foof choice. Price is compatible. most of the food offered are westerns. Big portion but taste is average. Clean and presentable look. The staffs are not so friendly. Need to keep remind them on our orders.

My friends and I went there for dinner. It was during the fasting month so the restaurant only opened at 8pm after their staff finished breakfasting. The grilled red snapper was fantastic! However their tandoori beef was kind of overcooked so it was quite hard rather than being juicy. Its more of a local styled restaurant with fold-able tables on the beach. Despite the slow service during the peak hours, we quite enjoyed the ambience. So, my advice, be there early for dinner if you don't wish to wait too long for your food to be served.

Maybe the best place to eat on Perhentian for food quality and value, especially the marinated fresh bbq fish, but the service really lets it down....they were incapable of serving any group with food at the same time, and once even served one of our group his dinner before others had even ordered! Made 'eating together' an impossiblity.

After reading some good reviews we were disappointed with our experience here. We had to ask the waiters 3 or 4 times for our drinks. The side order of chips arrived way before everything else from the BBQ and they forgot one of our main dishes. The fish from the BBQ was good but the beef was chewy. Best to stick the the seafood dishes, after all that is what the Perhentians are good at.

All in all we had better value meals at the cafés on Long Beach on the smaller island & our hotel Tuna Bay on Besar & the service is much better.
