“A pleasant place to eat, but be wary of the pasta dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

When you stroll along Telaga Harbour with the gleaming white yachts and motor vessels, you spot the outside tables of Mare Blu from far; the tables are covered with spotless white tablecloths, Italian style. It is very inviting. A friendly waitress brings you the menu; the menu is a mix of Italian and general Western dishes. Generally, the service is right up to Malaysian Hospitality standards. My wife and I shared a platter of tomato bruschetta as starter; the bruschetta was freshly made and delicious. My main course was Fish and Chips. This dish was very tasty and the dessert, home made Tiramisu, stole the show. Sitting at an outside table of the restaurant, at the waterfront, with a view of the gleaming ships, is very pleasing. Why then, you will ask, stops the rating of the Mare Blu and the food at 4 points? I tell you why. My wife had a pasta dish with meat sauce for the main course. The tagliatelle was seriously overcooked, resulting in one big pasta lump, (not a little bit overcooked; you can wave that away, because cooking pasta to an ideal structure is a very precise job, but seriously overcooked) and this tagliatelle lump was literally drowned is the sauce. Although the taste of the dish was OK, I must advise the chef of Mare Blu to fine tune his knowledge on Italian cooking, especially on pasta dishes. I make a big point of this, because Mare Blu core business is of course serving Italian food.

“A very happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

My wife decided that she wanted a burger & chips, so off we went knowing that a really good burger was going to be forthcoming.
She never got her burger because we got sidetracked by the idea of the surf & turf platter for two. The meat, lamb & steak, was cooked to perfection & of a very good quality & soooo tasty, especially with the mushroom or pepper sauces. The salmon & lobster didn't disappoint either & the lemon butter sauce was great. The vegetables were also cooked superbly, being al dente rather than mushy or raw.
The puddings were great too, I had fresh mango & pineapple & my wife had the pannacotta & both were very tasty.
Another surprise was that happy hour lasts from 3:00pm to 8:00 pm when beers & certain spirits were all half price.
All in all, a lovely meal in a lovely setting
