After other reviews saying how difficult it was to find we were a bit apprehensive. It's not, in fact it's very easy especially if you're at the Sheraton, if not just phone & Michele will guide you in. Really lazy, laid back atmosphere with excellent food at very reasonable prices and you must try Michele's walnut & chocolate tart!!!! After finding them on their night off (Tuesday) we went back the following night and were treated like old friends - when we left I think we were!!! Made time for a second visit before we came home too. Great western food,a super change from over-priced hotel food or asian cuisine. Highly recommend Mangoes to anyone. Michele & Lutz will welcome you and I know you will enjoy it.

Had some difficulty in finding the place. But the manager was more than pleased to help us. Lovely place. Cozy ambiance. Jovial and chirpy service. Excellent 'home-cooked style' food with spot-on recommendations. Value for money.

In summary - worth the hassle for finding the place! Reviews here you can trust and if I were to go back to Langkawi in the near future, this would definitely be in my 'will visit' list.

This place might not be the ritz, but it doesn't hold itself out to be either. The place is impossible to find unless you have a good cab driver, which luckily we did, but yet when we went to the back of the building sceptically, there it was and it was full. You don't get somewhere totally out of the way like that full, unless you are doing something right. The food was honest and good. Having grown up on great quality german food, I'm a harsh critic. I'll be honest, when I make schnitzel, it is better. But that is an unfair marker, because it was really good. The owners were friendly, the service great and the chicken liver pate tasted just like my mums - which is awesome. Go here if you want a change in your diet after some time in Malaysia. Go here if you enjoy retro-eclectic good times. It's good, honest, hearty food.

After reading the reviews we made a trip to eat there. The owner was very pleasant but the food is bog standard bistro. Certainly Not up to the standards at Nam,Privelege,Mare Blu etc. Just goes to show that one cannot trust the ratings at Tripadvisor unquestioningly.
Just for the record we have been going to Langkawi for the last 10 years and have eaten at most of the good restaurants.

Dear Lim12,

Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. I am very sorry that we didn't meet your expectations but your review clearly shows that you misunderstand the nature of this website. Trip adviser is based on popularity and not to be mistaken with e.g. Michelin's Guide to fine dining. Rating our 'value for money' as poor is simply outrageous. We do appreciate however that you enjoyed the service!
Regards
The Management

We had read all the great reviews about Mangoes and some comments about it being difficult to find. So we set out when we had hired a car to find this haven. After having tried once going down some small tracks and not finding anything we thought we would give it one more go. We found Michele painting the place and it was closed but neverthe less she took the time to show us round the place and also showed us the menu.

We went back the following night and were most impressed. The food was great but much more than that. The place and all the people from staff to other customers were so friendly.

We went back a second time during our stay and that just confirmed the first visit.

The food was excellent, it was great value for money but it was so much more. The evening was about the whole experience - from food the people to music. Many thanks to Lutz, Michele and all the staff for making the place so special and worth finding. Check out their website for directions!!
