“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

It would've been a great view daylight, because it's located over the beach. But I had dinner there so no view at all. I ordered chicken kungpao, blackpepper stone crab, and roast groper. All delicious!!!

“Family Friendly Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Angsana Resort and found Kelong a nice relief from the resort.

It's a big restaurant on stilts over water. Decor is nothing to write home about but the food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Easily half the price of the restaurants at Banyan Tree or Angsana.

We enjoyed the steamed fish, gailan and fried rice.

Our group up came back because we enjoyed it so much.

“Fresh but expensive seafood...Tasty too! :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

I went to the kelong with a big group of friends and the bill came up to SGD $810 for 16 persons so it was expensive for Indonesia standard. Luckily the food was good and seafood very fresh. The honey crab and steamed fish were excellent!

Chinese tea served was not good though, low grade of tea.

We walked out to view the stars after the dinner and it was a spectacular sight! We had a full view of the sky filled with stars so thumbs up for the experience.

The free shuttle to the kelong from the hotel was helpful. Will be back should i visit Bintan again. :)

We order the set dinner which consists of tofu with vegetables, fried boneless chicken, fried prawn, fried rice and soup. They taste good. But there should be improvement on the lighting. Kind of dim
