Food is good. Great tiger prawns and fish, but compared to all the other Chinese fish places quite overpriced. Scenery is nice though.

Putumayo is one of the more impressive-looking restaurants on this stretch of Pantai Cenang. The menu has a bit of Thai, a bit of Chinese, and some Western dishes. Not the most exciting selection but there's something for everyone. We had the green mango salad, the mixed vegetable curry, and the fried udon noodles with seafood. Service was great, the... More

I have eaten here every time i visit Langkawi. I love the little roadside waruings up and down the Pantai Cenang strip but for a really special night this place is the best. A great mixture of Malaysian, Thai and western dishes. The service is spot on and the staff very attentive. We will eb back

I have ordered a Steak. It costed me RM48 (Disclude Tax) and taste so bad. However, the atmosphere there is nice! Love the Love-shaped Christmas Tree. I guess the christmas tree is being recycled as a valentine decor.

This place is an oasis in the busy road of cenang. Fish curry was superb, as well as the Thai fried rice. We also tried the mango duck, which was surprisingly tender and aromatic. Such a shame we discovered this restaurant on our last night in langkawi.

i ordered fried mixed vegetables which is the easiest thing to cook ever! But I was served microwaved veg which had no flavour at all! The only thing that was good was the waiter who was a good man who told us of many a story. Do not waste your time or money go elsewhere!!

Like the title above. If i could give 6 stars to this restaurant,i will do that. We just noticed about this restaurant one day before we leave. My husband and me end up our holiday with a beautiful dinner. Why we found it on our last night? Unlucky. The restaurant looked so beautiful at night. We already have a look... More
