Great food and view

Love the seafood here. And the view is very nice specially at sunset. Just like any restaurant here, it's quite pricey but i think it's worth it compared to thr other restaurants in the area. U need to borrow a car tho to reach it because it's not really at the hotel.

The setting of this restaurant is breath taking. The facilities are very local, do not expect high end design! The food is excellent, and the service very attentive.

Even if the location of the restaurant is nice (on the sea) the prices are way too expensive for what you get...

I had the chopped wok fried Lobster and we also had the shrimp fried rice. Both were excellent and highly recommended. The Ocean setting over the water was also very nice.

Attentive and friendly staffs, good food quality but expensive compared to Singapore food. Setting is very rustic - the whole restaurant is on stilts with display of various sea creatures in tanks and makeshift mini-water farms. 2 adults and 1 child set dinner is around SGD$100-$120 (crab, prawns, veggie, noodle, soup etc) Good for the ambiance.

Enjoyed an Evening meal here, nice location (over water on stilts) and very busy contributed to a pleasant ambience. Considering how busy service very good , large seafood menu and choose the set menu for 4-5 , which gave the four of us a lot of choice and variety (Crab, Prawn , Mushroom vegetable). More food than we could eat.... More

It was another visit in this restaurant after visiting a lot of restaurants in the area of Bintan resorts. The food is just acceptable but still better than in other restaurants in the resorts. Incredible location makes this place worth to visit anyway. Even if crowds of Chinese tourists wants to spoil Your evening by their noisy behaviour.

Nice food, good service. Plain bread with crab sauce is delicious. But it's a bit far from any resort. Except this, everything is fine.
