Some women I met wanted to eat here, so the three (3) of us went here one night. We each had a native noodle-style dish with shrimps on the side. Not cheap, but O.K. and the very casual street side eatery had authentic charm.

If Daddy's Cafe also serve breakfast we'll eat here for the third time Stayed at Pangkor Island for 1 night only, we ate lunch, had cocktails, and ate dinner at Daddy's Cafe. The cafe is clean, has a neat layout. Its the best place for watching the sunset. We had cocktails while watching the sunset, then had grilled fish for... More

This is the must visit place if you are at Pangkor. Nice environment with good music on. Most important we were surprised on the foods presentation. Although it wasnt too crowded during our visit but we still waited quite long for our foods. No regret to wait as the foods are so nice. We ordered chicken chop, seafood pizza &... More

This place was one of the few if not the only who had a proper bar. We indulged many cocktails on the beach, and I have nothing bad to say about the place. We enjoyed it and had dinner there a few times. The food is a little more expensive at daddys than elsewhere, but it also lets you have... More

Probably the best food on the island. You can sit under the roof, or at tables out in the sand and enjoy views of Coral Bay and the sunset at dinner time. While the place doesn't look like much from the road, the food comes out of the kitchen looking like it came out of a high-end restaurant. Everyone who... More

Came to the island for a weekend with friends and we were looking for local food served at a good restaurant by western standards and found the perfect one. The food was good, the ambiance pleasant and the service professional and all the dishes were beautifully arranged. Friday evening we had dinner with no deserts. On Saturday we all decided... More

Get to Daddy's a bit before sunset to get a good table and beat the dinner rush. Our crab and chicken curry dinners were pretty tasty, although food did take awhile to come out, so just plan for this while you enjoy surprisingly good cocktails (planters punch is great). Nice wooden tables and chairs in the sand, as well as... More
