Located at Telaga Harbor, this is one of the hidden gems. We were the only patrons in this restaurant for lunch, and we had a good time.

The menu is one of contemporary Malaysian cuisine, and it is a twist to the usual dishes you will find in places that attempt this sort of cuisine.

I like the freshness of the ingredients, and while I hope the portions can be more generous, I think here the portions are good enough - much better than that at Nam in Bon Ton.

The owner was very friendly, and we got some good food tips from him, and also learnt a bit more about some of the resorts here in Langkawi.

This is recommended ... do drop by if you want to try something different.

Located at Perdana quay, situated next to The Loaf, this restaurant is recommended if you are looking for a romantic retreat on the island. Of course, there are many others around Pantai Cenang, but this is one of it to try.

Food wise, it's like a western oriental local fusion where you can see typical western cuisines, fused with oriental cooking and use of local ingredients. Taste I wouldn't rate it top notch but ain't too bad.

Service wise, was excellent with Peter prompting once awhile to check on us. Description was given every time a meal was serve. Complementary dishes were offered during my visit.

Located at the first floor give them a niche I guess. Other restaurants on the ground floor were so quiet and only Peter's restaurant was busy serving people.

Thank you for the service. My only complain perhaps will be the taste where it can be still improved further.

We utterly enjoyed our dinner in Privilege. Yes, i also struggle with the name...
Sophisticated cooking although i would not rank the flavours at top after 2 weeks in Malaysia. Nevertheless the combination of stylish decoration, good service, good food and excellent wines ( after 2 weeks of tea and juices) was very enjoyable.

We visited this restaurant twice during our holiday. The service was impeccable. The food was excellent. On our first visit, we sat with a view into the kitchen. We watched the three chefs at work and it was a delight. The menu is traditional Malaysian and it is proper fine dining. Definitely not to be missed
