I found Mangoes last year on a trip to Langkawi. It's one of these small bar/restaurants that you hear about by word of mouth. The 2 owners, Michelle and Lutz make you feel like you're part of the family as soon as you walk in. All the expats that live on Langkawi are regulars as well as all the yachties. The food is "home style" large meals that are truly delicious. I highly recommend the Sunday brunch! It's a real social occasion. I had the eggs Benedict while sipping champagne, so cheap and worth every cent. I ate there numerous times, the atmosphere always chatty, friendly and hilariously funny. Do yourselves a favour, seek it out....you won't regret it!

We had planned to visit Mangoes due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor which were then confirmed on the plane by an English couple living in Langkawi. We were staying at the Berjaya Hotel (near the Oriental Village) & therefore it was only 10 mins & £5 in a cab so very easy to get to. As soon as we stepped into the restaurant we were welcomed by Michelle who at once made us feel totally at home with the biggest smile you've ever seen. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, good home cooked food and alfresco dining. Michelle & Lutz are most definitely the hosts with the most and Christina the waitress was also lovely not forgetting Honey the very cute dog & Gremlin the cat (who hid most of the time so non-cat lovers wouldn't be put off). If you want a change from Malaysian food whilst in Langkawi Mangoes is a MUST. We rated the steak within the top steaks we'd ever eaten so if you're a steak lover give it a go. However, if you prefer a more formal restaurant with silver service it wouldn't be for you as Mangoes high rating is more for value, friendly service & good home cooked food. We visited 3 times in all and felt like Michelle & Lutz were long lost friends by the time we left. Thanks again to you all for your hospitality and hope to see you again one day :) ROZ & NEIL x

Visited again a couple of times on recent trip. Michele and Lutz still making everyone happy. Good western food, very welcome after 3 weeks of rice and noodles. Good menu choices with specials every day. Very welcoming and pleasant company just like returning home in some respects. Not that difficult to find, very close to Sheraton Beach where we stayed. 10 minutes from airport, 15 from Pantai Chenang. You will be made very welcome by the 'old buggers'(joke) who run it.

The owners (lutz and michele) even took the time to talk, recommend and took meal orders frm their guests. Feel very welcome to dine in their restaurant. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxing. Wines are cheap and good. Value for money meals for their absolutely wonderful meal.

Due to its hidden nature, it is a bit tricky to find. It is certainly far from many other attractions; about 10 minutes away from the airport and 30 minutes from Cenang beach. If you feel like you're going to some housing area, you are heading in the right direction.

The place is ran by a friendly elderly couple that always seem to be delighted to have guests. Do lookout for their specials. The menu and drinks selection are moderate but thoughtful and they also feature some German dishes in there should you be looking for them while in Langkawi.

Food was great and the meat was grilled nicely. Highlight of the place though is definitely the atmosphere that makes you feel well at home. The cheery owners also adds to this and adds a certain charm to the place.

It's hard to fully explain what it was like to dine here and it is a place where you truly need to experience on your own.
