Great good. Reasonable prices.. And the beers cold!!!

This place is a great place to chill, eat and drink!!! Prices are reasonable, foods good and the beer is cold!!! It's a good place to meet other people too.... Or take a nap if you're tired.... There's couches with an ocean view!!! Relax or go for a swim... Eat here every time I head up that way!!!

Loved the 'Healthy breakfast' - fruit, toast, fresh juice, the ikan bills was PERFECT with beer and the cheesecake... there really aren't enough words :-) I basically ate my way through the menu, it was all pretty great!

We popped in to Tip Top because our accommodation had run out of beer! However, after seeing the menu and hearing Howard's recommendation we decided to give it a go and sample some of the day's catch. I'm not a big seafood fan but went for the tuna steak which was absolutely delicious! Super fresh and all smoky from the... More

Simple good menu and amazing location on the curve of the bay, a super nice place to hang out, the kind of place you hanker to return when you leave!

We stayed at Tampat do Aman so had all our meals for 4D at this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Everything fresh and cooked to order. The only thing made a few hours early is the mango cheesecake which was amazing.

We visited the tip of Borneo and went to tip top for food. The food wasn't the best, but good enough. In the menu folder they give a lot of information about the area, transport and other things. Wat was really good is that you could work at tip top and get your accomodation for free. A good place for... More

It cause me food allergies after I ate the 6 pieces of the prawn from the seafood fried rice I ordered. From my experience, I won't have seafood allergies if it freshly served.

We stayed nearby for a few days and had some of our meals at Tip Top. Friendly service with a smile but definitely not 'fast food'. I only tried the local dishes and they were delicious, home-cooked style. The mango cheesecake was fantastic and so are their mixed fresh fruit juices. The place looks simple but is kept very clean.

They have all the beach toys you'll need to have a fun day on the beach. Beer, wine, fresh juices, and food is a little over priced but worth it. We have 3meals a day here. Awesome staff and great location.

Great local food, variety of fruit shakes and beers. In case of emergency Howard will offer you "some good Russian stuff" into your drink ;) Try HINAVA - local food from raw fish, onions, chilli, lemon... The place is very busy!
