the restaurant looks very appealing, we had dinner in a sort of terrace with view to the bay. The quality of the food is in the average, the cleanliness not exciting.

I was at the Matahari "hotel" one week. 7 days. When I needed something it was very difficult to talk with them because they don't know almost english. They try but isn't enough. Also, the room was "terrible". The mosquito net was broken. VERY broken. And we had cockroach and a big rat (this last in the stairs). And the... More

Why? Awesome view of the sunset... But I made the mistake of ordering food here (local food too!!). So there's no reason for the local food to be so bad. The curry is too watery (imagine coconut milk + chicken soup)... And the mi goreng were cooked in canned-bean sauce!!! How can they screw up mi goreng??!! It's their national... More

The service was really slow. It was only us and another couple in the restaurant. It is a big place and does... More

Better come when u're not in a rush. Before sunset is the perfect time because the restaurant is set up above the water, facing the horizon. They serve both Indonesian and Western Food here. When we didn't have plan or simply when we wanted to enjoy some relaxing time, me and my husband liked to sit for hours from tea... More

I have nothing special to say about this restaurant. We were the only customers and it took forever to get our food. Some of the food was not fully cooked. The rest was just average. Our waiter was very good and friendly though (even though he was new). The price? A little too expensive for what was offered. Other than... More

Too many Italian places in Labuan Bajo - this felt more original and the fish (tuna) and squid were great. Good value

Pros: Nice view in the daytime Cons: Ordered just pancake and coffee. Pancake is pricy, not tasty and contains someone hairs. Disappointed.
