“No Crab!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Aug.30th - we went for dinner and crab was not available. The other restaurants bought them as 31st was national day. So we ended up having curry! which was very good!. Food is expensive compared to Canada. Overall, food was good, and would go back as its much cleaner than the street vendors.

“Nice cafe/restaurant on the Coral Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Liked: perfect location, really good food (more especially the fish alu alu), nice people/waiters, beautiful view, nice music...

Disliked: service can be a little bit slow if the restaurant is crowed but Boleh Malaysia! Don't be in a rush and enjoy the moment and the view!

“Shambles cafe!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

We decide to venture out of Pangkor Island Beach Resort and followed TA's recommendation as per previous reviews and picked Daddy's cafe as 5mins down the road. We arrived at 6.45pm and were the first in the restaurant which at that point was empty. It was still light so we sat ourselves on the edge of the beach. The setting was fab but thats where the positive stops as far as am concerned! The waiter was quite abrupt and his english was appalling. We ordered abt 5different times as he kept coming back saying the dish we picked was not available. Eventually we opted for3 chicken dishes and one fish (4of us). It took ages for food and even drinks to arrive. By now (50mins later) the resto was filling up wt other customers from our hotel. The food itself was nothing to write home abt wt little portions and half cooked veg and soggy bits of crisps thrown under chicken! The banana fritters were good but the accompanying icecream very icy. When we asked for bill we gave up waiting and went to front ourselves to pay. It came to RM 218 and when my husband gave them RM 250 they claimed they didnt hve change and got even more abrupt! Eventually change was found. We asked if they could get us a taxi but again they claimed not to understand us so we walked out and flagged a taxi down further down the road. We will never go to this cafe again and suggest others to go elsewhere as service and food sucks!

“Amazing crab curry and a beautiful sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Fantastic beach cafe with fabulous food - we ate there several times and all the dishes were all really good - particularly the local crab curry ... be prepared to get a bit messy eating it! They also do lovely cocktails and fresh juices. Great service.
