Went on the recommendation of locals. We ordered a couple of starters and a couple of mains between us. Garlic fish and mixed vegetables were delivered first, one starter was served next, only after I asked if starters had been forgotten. Fish was delicious but for MYR150 for the fish alone, I expected to get some flesh off the charcoaled body. It was seriously devoid of flesh. The other dishes were also very tasty, but the total bill was MYR290 for 2 king prawns, small grouper (sans flesh), mixed veges and prawn dumplings 4 Tiger beers. We never did get the second starter but they did try to charge us for it! Service was none existent and it wasn't very busy at all. Overall I wouldn't recommend this restaurant - the food wasn't any better than Orkid Ria but more expensive and a disappointing experience overall.

The place itself is fantastic with views of the open sea, lit deck and a pier on which you could walk right into the sea. Brilliant lighting and a quaint bar also complete the look. What it could do with is better staff - apart from the initial smiles, the staff seemed to be extremely unhelpful. Ordering anything is a chore if you aren't Chinese or familiar with the dishes. They don't really seem interested in helping you choose anything. Picking a live fish seems more like a fencing duel with anything you want either not available or not less than 1 Kg. I don't mind it being a little pricey but I think the attitude I got was one of "we rob you if you don't have a clue". Taste front the food is awesome - i really liked what we ordered. Just, could really do with some better staff.

We tried the food for lunch cause we see the sign board advertisement from pantai cenang.this is located at kuah town and we took the taxi to go for lunch. Presentation is really good and you can see ex-prime minister Mahathir son photo (kedah state minister). The place look good and feel good. We order the dishes . Only the live food is fresh (prawn and fish, but taste can't compare to orchid Ria ) the vegetable not cook and scallop not fresh. ... Rm 250 for 3 persons... Not worth mainly the food can't match the expectation when your see such a good environment....

We like this place and we particularly think that it is an even better to visit this place at night. There is a small bridge you can walk on the water and dine there too. Food was great and fresh but a little bit pricey compared to other seafood restaurants in Langkawi.
