Mosquito and Flies is all over. We've there for 2 hours, and they only turn on the fan 45mins later. Food and Price is Bearable.

Was here for some drinks. Tried their Air Batu Campur (shaved ice with red beans, milk and other condiments), it was a good portion, rather nice but not the best that I have ever had. It was rather hot and had asked for the fans to be switched on and the answer from the waiter was a flat ‘No Fan’.... More

I loved the concept of a restaurant by the beach. but the lighting was really poor, it seemed cheap. chairs uncomfortable. food was okay, neither good or bad. the selection was really weird - as if they are trying to please everyone. would be better to stick to one type of cuisine and do it well. it wasn't too clean...

-the fans did not work. -the food was tasteless (buffet) -too many flies and nothing was done about it! - food was served cold! seems like the only good thing about the restaurant is the view.

This restaurant could and should be one of the best in Port Dickson…but with poor food, slow service, out dated decor, and a management that does not seem to care it will never make it,,,for what you get you are paying city prices…so not worth it. Sunset at this restaurant is the best thing about the place…also has a great... More

Coconut Grove Port Dickson the name itself reminds us places such as Bali and Hawaii. It is in actual fact a lovely place for dining overlooking the beach. The place is well located and next to a hotel and properly built wiht a good system of menu selection, ordering and delivery. We have been to this place twice but on... More

Amazing beachfront location, the perfect place to unwind with some food and a nice cold beer... except that they don't serve any alcohol. Good food but with limited vegetarian choices. I had my third mee goreng of the day, but having said that, it was definitely the best one. If they sort out a beer and cocktail menu they will... More

We have been here many times before years ago. Came back and found that they don't serve alcohol anymore, not one drop of beer to be found. Juices served with way too much sugar. Half the little restaurants on the beach were closed on a Sunday evening and the main restaurant as well. Staff are not polite; such a shame... More

We went there for a late lunch and tea-time crowd was increasing. They only had one cook. He cooked everything alone, one by one. They were tasty, but seriously? One cook? Our food was served one by one. We had to cancel an order because we were rushing. But poor guy, handling everything all on his own. But I reiterate,... More

Description
This restaurant is part of the Regency Tanjung Tuan Beach Resort. Really lovely al fresco dining right on the beach. A series of hawker stall style mini restaurants (each serving a different nationality/type of food) and you select which ever cusine you want. You can choose Chinese, Thai, Malay or western foods. There is even fresh fish and shell fish (you choose your own fish from a fresh fish counter and have it cooked to order). Or you can stick to western dishes (excellent lasagne, fish and chips etc). Often there are themed buffets and barbecues and live music. The place is not posh and it attracts loads of families.

We have been to this restaurant twice, each on separate visits to Port Dickson. If you arrive early evening you are treated to the most spectacular sunset; and as the evening wears on, the restaurant gets busier and busier and the place really buzzes. Service is fast and efficient with plenty of waiters. Food is on the pricey side compared to the local restaurants, especially for western dishes and fresh fish, but it is worth splashing out at least once during your holiday.
