We decided to try this place mainly because it looks the part, in comparison to some of the cafe style dives that line parts of the strip in Cenang! We are fairly ok with most foods and so we asked about the crab and shrimp dishes, since it was advertised as a seafood restaurant. The guy taking the order advised... More

Very nice setting and clean. Excellent service and friendly staff - however thought prices were too high for the portions. My daughter had ordered the Lamb Stack but only came with 3 lamp chops and a tiny portion of fries similar to what you would get in McDonalds. Therefore we had to order the same dish twice in order to... More

The selection was good. We opted for a mix of fish, duck and rice. The fish was well cooked and tasty. The duck was ok but not the best. The thai fried rice was good with just about the right amount of kick Service was reasonably ok

We have been looking for a descent resto in town, but some of them are too expensive yet have limited options for food. In the last night of our stay, we finally found a restaurant with delicious food, good value for money, and friendly staffs: Putumayo. Plus, it is located in the center of Cenang. A should try.

The Putumayo restaurant is clearly our favourite between all restaurants along the Pantai Chenang road. The selection of Indian and Malaysian food is good, the restaurant clean and well organised. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We tried several different dishes, all tasty and for reasonable prices. A special event was the lobster - fresh from the aquarium selected... More

Food was amazing had the lobster in garlic butter. One of the best meals we have had here. Great value for money. Great kids meal. Toilets were the cleanest I have seen here. Tip the staff individually do not add to your bill as they will not see any of it.

Enjoyed a family meal at Putumayo tonight - very tasty, very reasonably priced. Delicious spring rolls and bruschetta too. Servings are on the small side though - fine for us as a family with young kids, but might leave a larger appetite wanting a bit more!

The restaurant is on the Main Street and is a little more stylish than the other restaurants in the area. Food is good and tasty. Mango chicken had a nice amount of heat. Staff are attentive. Like many restaurants in the area, it becomes more hectic as they get more busy.
