“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The service, restaurant decoration and the food were more then excellent.
The staff was very helpful, active and smiley. We were sitting outside and there were moskitos. As soon as I informed the staff, they got me anti-moskitos cream and spray.
The food's taste was so delicious and special.
Very good experience.

“Nice food for a nice price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've been in Langkawi twice. First time we tried this restaurant with a Spanish friend we were surprise by the price-quality relationship of the food, plus the nice setting and service. Most of the restaurants in Pantai Cenang may have good food, but the settings are not nice at all, so it's nice to have Putumayo as a choice.
Second time I went to Langkawi, I returned with different friends, and we all loved the place, the food and the service.
I definitly will go back again.

“Elegant restaurant in Pantai Cenang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is one of the more up-market restaurants in Pantai Cenang, we usually eat at more basic places but decided to splash out for a change. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ordered a main course and two dishes from the starters menu which were all served together at our request. We had scallops with XO sauce and rice, plus chicken satay sticks and small battered prawn and fish portions. Everything was very nicely served, and not too expensive. We hope to visit again next time. I really do not recognise this place from the bad review.

“Great Food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We happened by this place and checked out the menu, which we found to be really interesting and just looking at the place made us want to eat here.
We made a reservation and returned to find one of the nicest restaurants we had been to in Langkawi. I am always perplexed how the reviews can go from excellent to terrible, however my suggestion is to ignore the reviews and try for yourselves.

We had prawns, although they looked more like crayfish to us, they were enormous, maybe a bit pricey for Malaysia standards , but I would have them again.
Next we had fish and again this was to die for.
I wrote down my scores and they came in around the 8 -9/10. Wish we had stayed longer to try other items on the menu.

Service was great and very attentive. It was low season when we visited, but the place was jumping compared to other places on the strip, but still everything was well done.
