Always delivers!

We first visited here 2years ago, and were impressed enough to ensure if was our first stop when we returned this year. Drinks are great, especially the cocktails, and good price too (RM18).

Had the Barracuda with spinach and cream sauce. About as good as fish can be. And I like fish! Then had the chocolate lava cake. Same. I cannot imagine chocolate lave cake being better. Service not great. But simple and clean restuarant. Not luxurious. But fantastic food.

Whilst actually a main course, we shared a prawn noodle between the 2 of us as a starter and it was delicious. we both then had the barrracuda and it loved up to all of the previous reviews that raved about it. Wine was the best value yet as for the first time on the island, we went with the... More

We first eat here when we arrived after a 16 hour flight from the UK. We chose familiar comfort food which combined with the welcoming and efficient service helped us to unwind. After that we visited another couple of times for meals and became more adventurous in our choice of meals from their extensive menu. Each time the food was... More

Four of us went for dinner based on the reviews. We ordered four drinks and all of us concluded that it would have required highly specialised, scientific equipment to have measured the alcoholic content. None of us ordered any other drinks. Slightly under forty five minutes later our lukewarm food arrived on cold plates. One of the dishes ordered, a... More

Sun Cafe is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants on the island. It is spotless as is the kitchens and toilets ( a must visit if at the restaurant). The restaurant serves a mixture of local Malay food, European plus pasta's and pizzas. My wife's favourite is the local dish Prawn Mee Goreng. I love the Barracuda,served on a bed... More

Was surprised why there is lots of washroom shots here. It is because it is open plan with a stream beside and overlooking coconut trees. The food here were presented like in Bali. The rice come in a cone or pyramid. The food...coffee and tea was great. Balacan was gorgeous. Only thing is beef rendang was reheated or microwaved. Coz... More

We ate here a couple of times and really enjoyed the food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The malaysian curries were very authentic and the fish special was great. The decor is nice and there is outdoor and indoor dining, the staff were also very good at dealing with food allergies and requests.

I would say one of the best restaurant in Cenang Island. Good food but more importantly they have really good customer service. As we are vegetarian the staff did asked us whether we are vegetarian or not. When we said we are, she literally suggested us the type of food we can have. The food taste good as well. Very... More

Have eaten here four times on this trip and enjoyed every meal. It's a little way from the bustle of Pantai Cenang so no traffic noise. The signature dish appears to be grilled barracuda and it's superb. Prices are very moderate too. Recommended.
