Description: Set in the beautiful grounds of La Pari-Pari, fatCUPID is tucked away down a quiet lane off the main Pantai Tengah strip. Owned and operated by three cousins, the restaurant features recipes from their family's rich Nyonya heritage, incorporating dishes learned from their Grandmother, and some Aussie favourites that are a reference to the cousins' shared experiences living in Australia. Great for a laid-back breakfast or lunch, and a fantastic intimate venue for a quiet, cozy dinner.

“Warm Hospitality , off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We have visited Fat Cupid for breakfast one morning while in Langkawi and end up staying and enjoying the family like hospitality of them all during the rest of our stay

Kitchen prepared a special dish for me following a lacotsio / gluten free diet , their other brand new venue Sugar serves also fresh good meals and its great location to spend your day and stay until sunset.

over all a comforting , beautiful affordable place on the Island!

stay at Fat Cupid and enjoy

“It's like sitting in your backyard eating well!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We went to this lovely place twice. It's peaceful, beatiful and the staff is excellent and caring for their customers. Both Asian and Western food were tasty and their pannacotta is perfect! Would definitely recommend this place.

“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

FatCupid is situated within the La Pari Pari guesthouse and the two complement each other perfectly. Being able to stay in a beautiful little hotel with such great food on your door step is a recipe for a great holiday.

There are certainly cheaper places in Langkawi to go for dinner but I can guarantee you that none will leave as much of a lasting impression as FatCupid (except maybe its sister restaurant, Sugar). A lot of this enjoyment is directly attributable to the people who own and run FatCupid. Jeremy in particular is a force of friendliness and fun unto himself. The team always went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and never missed a beat in looking after our ten-month old.

If I was to pick one fault it would be that the Beef Rendang portion is too small (its so good that this is actually a complement!).

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We went for dinner tonight and the food was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

FatCupid can be located once you find SunBa albeit a little hard to find but if you are coming from the main beach, turn left just after SunBa Retro Bar and follow the road all the way down to the end.

Other reviewers complain about the small quantity of food which may deter people who like to enjoy big meals, but the quality of the food is amazing. I was actually quite full after my cocktail and my Chicken Pontay. My husband had the Lamb. Both were amazingly nice.
After 3 drinks, 2 mains and the sago dessert, our bill came up to 120RM. That may seem pricy to people who may want something cheaper.

I really enjoy the decor, it reminds me of a cafe that could belong in Sydney. It is simple, clean cut but the beautiful chairs and rustic jars make it a relaxing experience after a long day driving around the island. Service was exceptional too. Owners are so lovely.

Can't wait to try brunch!
They also have a new place thats asian fusion with tapas and cocktails by the main beach, but my husband and I were unable to locate it due to the fact that we were so full! Would really like to check it out though.

“Ok meal, but shouldn't be number 1 on trip advisor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

My fiancé and I went here after reading the reviews and seeing this was number 1 on trip advisor. The restaurant is down adirt track off the main drag in pantai cenang and is connected to a hotel. On first impressions, we were a little disappointed. The restaurant area was empty other than 1 other table (we were there over Xmas break and it was 8pm) and the restaurant is sparsely decorated, so there wasnt much atmosphere or great feeling. The staff were really friendly, the menu was ok and food was nice, however I would recommend cads del mar, priviledge or the cliff restaurant over fatcupid.
