“Wonderful food, wonderful staff”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Would recommend this place to anyone. Such nice people, great food and cold beer. What more could you want!
We had breakfast and dinner here, both are run by seperate people, so very diverse from morning to night. Highly recommend the duck and fish, so fresh and a lot of different ways to cook.
The staff are wonderful and for a newcomer to the island, very helpful. We got some great tips from John on what to see and do.
Every night we went there they would have our drinks and table ready, also some repellent as mosquitos are a big nuisance on this island and the coils didn't always cut it.
This place caters for all tastes and has a pretty extensive menu.
Do not miss if staying in the area.

“Cheap, yummy”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were staying at the hotel over the road and tried 3 of the restaurants opposite it. The Cactus was only 1 min stroll from the hotel. We had a great vevening meal - as much as we could eat for about 8 euros each! Very friendly staff, suitably tatty surroundings (wouldn't want anything else!) and absolutely no hurry! We had breakfast there also, but weren't so impressed. The sausages were kind of, um, sweet! In fact, everything was sweet, even the scrambled egg! However, it was cheap and filling before setting off for the airport. As to the kitchen..... wouldn't dream of looking in ANY kitchen in Malaysia - we might starve!!

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We were staying across the road and would walk across each morning for breakfast. This place has great service, the meals are a good size, it is priced well, it is fresh and there is a great deal to choose from. Yes, it's rough and rustic, but this is Langkawi. Try the Framers Breakfast and the Borneo omelette are worth a try..
