Our signature restaurant is a unique al fresco seafood grill with a beachfront setting. Located near the coral beach, Fresh is unlike any other seafood restaurant in Sanya. Completely al fresco, Fresh’s unique wood-and-coconut fired grill brings together the best cooking traditions of Southeast Asia and Europe. Its menu features both Asian and French Provençal entries and includes freshwater and saltwater seafood as well as shellfish, and a selection of premium meats and fresh poultry.

Best restaurant in Sanya

Fresh is my favourite restaurant in Sanya. The setting, atmosphere, food and service are amazing!! Strongly recommend to visit while in Sanya..... a perfect evening (sea side) is guaranteed. Personal favourite is the Suckling Pig for sharing and the scallops to start with.

We had fish and lamb and manilla clams. The clams were good, the fish and lamb were oily and the lamb tasted like it was cooked along side the fist. Wine list ridiculously expensive. But it had maybe the very best service I have ever had in seven years in China. The young lady who took care of us was... More

what could be better than eating brilliantly prepared seafood on a warm evening with the sea lapping up to the beach close to your table? If that sounds appealing then this is the place for you. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly, food absolutely perfect and the setting is unbeatable. We really think that this restaurant is hard to... More

The atmosphere is wonderful, sitting at the beach and watching the sunset. But the food is not as good as we expected. The beef is overdone and the dessert is just OK. Since there is no air-con outside, it's still a bit too warm in the summer.

We were 6 westerners with wives and kids on fuel powered scooters and wanted to try the fantastico buffet we knew about from MO Shanghai. We were chased off. The security stopped US at the gate with bad attitude. Well we went to intercontinental and enjoy

We had two amazing dinners in Fresh during our stay in Mandarin Oriental. We enjoyed our dinner outside and had a lovely table for our nine person entourage. The food was really really good and fresh indeed. We enjoyes some oyesters, selection of different grilled seafood and different fishes. We loved it!

Whilst staying at the Mandarin Oriental recent,y, we ate two lovely meals here. On the first we had the 7 course degustation, a feast of magical flavours and textures, beautifully served by gracious and hardworking staff. On the second we had the smaller 3 courses, equally beautifully served and as delicious as the earlier. Being an outdoor venue, there's always... More
