We had a lovely meal just as the sun was setting. Excellent food, lovely atmosphere and the staff are lovely. We did not stay at this hotel, but they were more than happy to squeeze us in with out a booking. If you like being organised, its worth booking a table here. They also serve nice wine (something of a rarity on the island).

It is expensive by island standards, but what you get for your money is very good value. The setting is lovely and their cocktails menu is the best in Pentai Cenang - the Lychee martini was absolutely delicious. I really enjoyed the meal as the food was as delicious from start to finish as the cocktail. I found the staff to be cool and professional rather than warm and welcoming which I would have preferred, but that is a minor 'nit pick' rather than a serious complaint. I would highly recommend La Sal for at least one dinner whilst on the island and definitely if you have something special to celebrate.

During our stay at Casa Del Mar we ate at La Sal on two occasions and we were NEVER disappointed. The food, location and service are excellent and if we would have stayed longer we would have certainly returned again.
The Malay tasting plate, grilled prawns and the Salmon were some of our excellent choices. Not to mention dessert.
The location right on the beach is very romantic and the portable lamps on the table add gentle lighting and a romantic touch, while looking across the water to the twinkling lights off the nearby islands or under the stars.
With the warmer evening weather of Langkawi, the bar just steps away and the excellent service from the wonderful staff at Casa Del Mar what more could you ask for.
Of the 6 nights we stayed at Casa Del Mar, La Sal was always quite full and I would say of very satisfied customers. Well done Casa Del Mar and La Sal on your number one status. we cant wait to return. Thanks to Jiha and all the CDM team for their excellent customer service

We were thinking of going here for dinner based on TA anyway, but after chatting with another couple who dined at La Sal the evening before who highly recommended it we made a booking for 7 PM, about half an hour before sunset.

The dining tables are set up on the sand on the beach with brightness adjustable table lamps just in front of the main bar. The atmosphere at sunset is sensational. Service was excellent and both our entrees and mains were delicious and beautifully presented.

Understandably, La Sal is not cheap but not unreasonably high either.

A must do Langkawi dining experience.

We dined there one night and promptly emailed them to book another night!

The setting helps and the CdM is not overcrowded and did not seem to have kids marauding out of control. Get there early and have a cocktail as the sun goes down. The use the beach as the dining area and it was done well and not cheesy and neither were you hassled for being on the beach.

The food was excellent and no complaints at all in this regard. Staff we found to be very good and based on our two visits, I could not recommend the place highly enough,
