I ate many meals here during my stay on the island in September. While no one dish blew me away, I never had a bad meal. My favorite dishes were the various fish offered at dinner. Also, their smoothies were amazing, and the best I've had in Malaysia. The orange mango was my favorite. The wifi is also pretty reliable... More

After I read the reviews of others, I decided to have dinner here. I am beyond disappointed a fact that the menu choice is very limited and the foods we had were not good so do not expect too much if u want to try this restaurant :-)

The hype is correct, Ewan's is one of the few places on this island to eat a decent cheap meal without a 2hr wait. Perhentian kecil is no great place for food, service is generally shoddy and prices are not cheap for the food you get, but Ewan's is the exception to this rule, great service, good portions, good food...

Title should be self-explanatory enough - whenever I visit Perhentian Kecil, I make it a point to have most (if not all) of my meals here. Despite being a city girl (I live in KL/ Penang) - I really enjoy the spiciness of the 'nasi goreng kerabu', the sweetness of the 'mee bandung', the freshness of the squid dishes, and... More

Probably the best place for wifi on the island but also really good food! Try the veggie curry and the oreo shake, it won't disappoint you.

We loved the laid back atmosphere in this restaurant. Probably because it is brightly lit. The foods and drinks are cheaper compared to other restaurants. I wished I had dined in this place sooner. recommended!
