“best restaurant we ate at during our stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Food was great here, right next to our chalet at Mama's Place. Menu is pretty wide, everything was yummy compared to everywhere else we tried and we didn't get any food poisoning like we did when we tried the food at Perhentian Island Resort. In the end, we decided to stick to Watercolours since it seemed like the best

“Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

This is the only restaurant I would highly recommend on Perhentian Islands. Besides usual Malay dishes their evening barbecue is definetely the best on the Island: they have wide assortment of fresh fish and meat, and what is the most important - they cook it nicely! Not dry, not burned, really delicious tender grills - and that is rare thing on the island comparing to the other places. They also have the best chiapatti bread,

“Good food very slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

The food was good, quality is not on par with the mainland, but good for the location.
The menu is quiet extensive. However the restaurant get quiet busy and as a result the service is very very slow. Also I was surprised that the restaurant would not want to cook lunch for me at 11:30, they cook only breakfast till noon.

“Good Food and WIFI!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

They server a variety of western, Malay, Thai and Chinese food. Everything we tried was tasty. They also make a chocolate cake that is tasty! The service is also friendly with a smile.

What we most liked about the place was that they offer free wifi and it works most of the time! They also have a few outlets at the back corner tables. but we warned that there are tons of mosquitoes in the afternoon/evening!. Also, everyone knows about the wifi here, so it gets really crowded in the evening and the internet speed can come to a crawl. So if you need speed your best bet is to come in the daytime when it's less crowded.

Location is also good as it is right next to the water, but the beach is not swimmable due to all the coral and shallow water, plus there are boats there that make the water dirty and less swimmable. Regardless, you can get a table under the shade tree looking at the ocean and Kecil across the way. Quite nice view!

“Expensive for Environment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

We had a fantastic laska here but a terrible salad (chopped cabbage). We thought the prices were expensive considering the restaurant environment and service compared to Tuna Bay Resort restaurant.
