Nice brightly lighted up place. Food is pretty good and reasonably priced. Free wifi with power points available. A little slow service wise when it is crowded. They offer the barracuda fish on their menu. Loved their squid and prawn dishes too.

Food and drinks served at other cafe/ food stall on this island are more or less the same but I find the price at this cafe slightly cheaper. The menu listed 'french toast' but when it was served, I think they should rename it 'egg toast'

Ewan's Cafe is a short 3 minute walk up the hill - east of Coral Bay along the path between Ombak restaurant and Mama's and probably a 7+ minutes walk west of Long beach. A great selection of Malay/Thai/Chinese and Western Tourist fare is on offer and is priced to suit backpackers budgets. The meal portions are large and while... More

My wife and I ate at Ewan's twice while we were in the Perhentian Islands on holiday. The food was quite delicious and the fresh fruit juice was some of the best we had on the island. Some of their dishes like the butter squid could use a little flavoring, but other foods such as their nasi goreng and fish... More

We tried a few places on Long Beach and I must say it has been terribly disappointing. Even the local staples like Nasi Goreng wasn't up to standard! Ewan's Cafe is located on Coral Bay, a short 10mins walk from Long Beach. The staff were very friendly even though they were near closing when we arrived. The food arrived fast... More

Come to Ewans to kick back in the shade, get some delicious Malaysian food for a reasonable price, and jump on the internet if you need to. The service is slow-paced but everyone there greets you with a smile. We went to Ewans many times and enjoyed every meal.
