NIce getaway to relax with good food

Well situated at Pantai Cenang but away from the hustle and bustle of the main activities. You must have a car to go there as it can be quite a walk even from... read more

The food and service were so good we ate here 3 times while staying there - and we usually like to head into the towns on trips...but it was so good we went back for more, especially the salmon starter and seafood platter! Lovely cocktails by the pool...the smoothie was amazing and even a schnitzel sandwich tasted extra good!

Incredible food, service, view and cause. I ate at this restaurant daily while staying in Langkawi this past February. Order anything on the menu, kick back and enjoy the vibe and scenery. My favorite part of this restaurant is that it actually helps fund a shelter for adoptable dogs and cats as well as provides spay/neuter services to the strays... More

I googled 'best laksa in Langkawi' and Nam at Bon Bon came up in the first search. I decided to drag my boyfriend the 1.2k down the road and after reading it donated some funds to a cat sanctuary I was hooked. Despite having some issues ordering drinks the place was magnificent. Relaxing ambience, good service and kitties everywhere so... More

Cute place, but not without its drawbacks. The biggest one of these is the price. It's phenomenally more expensive than anywhere else of comparable ilk, and although it's undeniably a beautiful / romantic setting, the food doesn't justify the price. It's good, some dishes more than good. But wait until the bill comes. Splash on that bug spray you'll be... More

Lovely food and lovely scenery. Rock lobster tails as a starter and the Nyonya banana leaf with Malay specialities. Everything finger licking good. And even better desserts. Ok, they have a lot of mosquitos and you have to be ok with cats, but if so, you'll have a great dinner.

It's a little pricier that the usual langkawi restaurant, but the decor and the atmosphere are worth it. Excellent food.

because that is what your mouth will be doing. chomping happily on most anything you order. also try the straits club next door at the temple tree, and if they have homemade ice cream, order it.

We were 6 adults and 5 kids. Food was excellent - local with a touch of fusion. Very inventively presented and delicious. Kids meals also interesting and healthy but pitched just right so fussy children weren't too suspicious. The staff were gorgeous - so kind. We arrived very early and they let us use the pool to entertain the kids... More
