Fish great.

Fantastic fresh fish. Fantastic, get a room by the pool on the ground floor, really cheap wine and enjoy the barbecue. Relax and chill out. Very friendly and helpful staff, absolutely no negatives to this place.

They have a buffet and an a la carte menu for you to choose. The food (both western and local) are cooked to perfection. Also, they have various events on depending on the night. They do seafood BBQs or romantic full moon dinners. Just check the board each morning to see what's happening that night.

Marlin has had some changes to its menu and introduced a few new exciting nights such as BBQ on the Beach, Thai Market Night etc etc. Some of these are buffet and some al carte. I have found the Buffett a complete... More

A great variety of food - each meal excellently prepared. Warm and welcome atmosphere. A little singing by some locals creates an entertaining evening

Loved it so much that we ate here every night without trying any of the other restaurants. The entertainment with the guitarist and singers was very good and added ambiance and the service was also very good. Food exceeded my expectations for dinner and was ok for a free breakfast as well.

The marlin is exceptional in its food both traditional Thai and western and the service impeccable. If you come to Outrigger make this the main place for your meals, it won't disappoint

We tried Thai dishes one night, it was not good. Spring rolls, curries, fish, pad thai, tong yin gon, none were good, we wondered if it was a Thai chef in the kitchen. We liked the Thai restaurant on the hill. But the staffs were friendly though

The dishes, including international ones, are cooked wihout care and seem tasteless. It is recomended to eat in one of the various restaurants located in a village located just behind the hotel, such as Mint - in my family's and mine opinion - and Buffalo Head.

Had a good red duck curry with lychees and pineapple after checking in at the outrigger... It was really tasty! Had good banana shakes and that was good too. A bit expensive though... There are really good places behind the hotel in the village that taste really good and are really cheap!

We went there for a quick lunch and had sandwiches. I wasn't impressed with the club sandwich and the beef sandwich was ok. The portions were rather small and I would have expected a lot more for the price we paid. The Mango shake was very watery and came in a small glass. Service was lacking as we had to... More
