Best budget food on island

We came to Ewans maybe 6 times during our 8 day stay on the island. We kinda wished we actually stayed with them as well as the location is split between long beach and coral bay. Food and service were excellent and I can personally recommend the barracuda and king fish dishes as well as the great... read more

It is so far the best place on the island. I have been here one week and haven't found anything like this. The food is fresh and prices are quite affordable. Also, they have a WiFi that works, which in this island is an extra point. Lots of options for food, local or western.

We were looking everywhere for something affordable AND tasty which was pretty hard to find on perhentian kecil and thank goodness for Ewan Cafe! Love the juices and ice blends, definitely a must-try, especially the melon and mango ice blends. Best breakfast on the island for me and doesn't charge RM5 for a big bottle of water like the rest...

Just leaving coral bay towards long beach, you will find the most affordable restaurant in Kecil Island. You have traditional Malaysian dishes, but be advised that there is no alcohol here. There are very good natural juices though. The food is good, but you won't have much options besides Malaysian dishes. Lunch for two should cost you around 50 ringgit... More

My husband and I had a late lunch here upon arrival from KL. This place was recommended by the water taxi drivers and we've read the reviews as well. All I can say is that the food we ordered was really good and price was definitely reasonable. Love the effort that they put in cooking and presenting the food. Service... More

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 :-)
