Good food and good prices

I ate at Ewan Cafe nearly every day of my two week stay in Perhentian Kecil. They had tasty food at affordable prices (I especially liked the breakfast sets) and the best wifi I could find on the island, The staff was friendly and it usually didn't take long to get the food (especially compared to... read more

Too many dishes on the menu for any of them to be good. Didnt feel Malaysian, just western. Quite a long wait for the food in Malaysias minutter where it is udslæt quick.

We ordered Banana Milkshake and Oreo Milkshakes. Cheaper than in Long Beach, and very tasty. Wasnt so lucky with our fried calamari as the batter tastes bland. Shady restaurant. Even in the hot sun, theres a cool breeze.

We read much positive reviews about this cafe before our trip to perhentian island. Although the price for the food was rather reasonable, the taste was just average, marred further by the rude and impatient attitude of the waitress. We were a big group with kids, and taking our order might be longer than usual. But we hoped that our... More

Nice food and working wifi, not the cheapest you can find but compared to other places on the island (mostly on long beach) cheaper and better food

Decent food and if you need to get connected then they have good wifi. If you stay at Long beach, remember to bring a flash light for the walk back after dark.

Clean and functional with the added bonus of a reasonably priced supermarket. Food was always tasty and the staff were helpful. We would have stayed there if there was any availability but...it was fully booked which should tell you something!

Been here many times, in the last few years, and even though they have extended their restaurant which toke away the coziness, the food and drinks quality never went down. Great place for any time of the day, and if you're lucky their internet works as well :-)

I am Malaysian local, looking at the price they offered here, it is affordable with the rate of this island as an international tourist spot. compared to Redang Island, their offerings and local menus are very cheap and affordable. This is usual hangout place for my fellow divers, usual we gather around 7pm and stay till 9pm. anyhow, totally recommend... More

Giving it three stars only because the mango and Oreo smoothies were amazing. It took them an hour to get us our food and both our meals were awful. I had the tomato chicken dish and the chicken was so hard I couldn't even bite into it. Go for the smoothies and eat your meals somewhere else.
