The whole resort and restaurant was stunning and a nice escape from the basic dining and lodging of the sepilok jungle resort we were staying in just 5 mins down the road. Loved the setting and free games they had to play. Drinks were nice and my husband's white fish meal was great- but what I ordered was really bad. I ordered the 'kaffir lime prawns' which were scented with a jasmine oil and chilli, however what came out was not that- it was about 12 small prawns served with head and shell on covered in a sugar syrup, it had no flavour of kaffir lime, chilli or jasmine. So so strange. The waitress came and argued that I couldn't send the dish back without paying for it, but in the end they didn't charge me- I don't know what that chef was thinking, but he really didn't do well with those poor shrimps! He needs to taste his own food and see what he thinks.
The whole weirdness with the service staff then dampened our experience which was a shame because we loved everything else about it!
