I was very surprised when I visited kelong seafood restaurant supposedly the best seafood restaurant of Bintan ! The food was actually not good at all and expensive. I strongly not recommend the luxury lobster which costs 70$! You have a ridiculously small portion of lobster and rest of the dish is salad, chicken and seafood rolls that don't look... More

This restaurant is situated over the water. There is a calypso bar at the very end of the jetty. There is a huge range of seafood available. Loved it!

As the title suggest. Singapore pricing. Drinks were ridiculous though. A jug of Coke was SGD$25 and we broke our whisky there hence there was an additional corkage fee of SGD$36.

While holidaying in Bintan in May 2016, we were recommended by friends to visit this restaurant in Bintan near Angsana. It was situated a bit far from the hotel or main road , but the atmosphere, setting and amazing sunset almost make up for the little inconvenience. We ordered famous dish, salted egg crabs with honey, fresh drunken prawns and... More

You have to make your reservation beforehand to get a table with a sea view. Other than that nothing special. The food was on the average side with high price. You are paying for the location and not for the food I guess.

They serve fresh seafood and it was cooked very well. Dining in the place also offers a great view, as it is connected with Calypso Bar. It is advisable to come here by sunset for the view and also early because the place gets really full.

You go here for the views, dining on the sea, from the sea. The fact that the food is delicious AND reasonably priced is a bonus. I'd thoroughly recommend it. Be warned, even the small dishes are generous so be careful not to over order.
