Having spent 6 weeks on the Island there are better and cheaper places to eat. Nothing wrong but just very average.

Went there on our first day on the island and never went back. Service was slow, forgot our orders or told us they were out of what we wanted. "Local" food options were mediocre even for Perhentian Islands. It's also huge, so you're surrounded by tourists who all speak the same language (mostly families and the type of tourists who stay at a place and then don't move a hundred metres to explore what's around). If you want to mingle with the locals a bit more and eat better food for less money, go elsewhere on main beach.

We ordered just simple plates of fried rice and were pleasantly surprised at how good they turned out to be. The fish was cooked to perfection as well, and not too expensive.

We stayed in Coral View Island Resort 6 days 5 nights (31 July – 5 August 2012) and every evening had our diner in the same resort restaurant. Coral View Island restaurant offers dining a la carte. There is a wide selection of local dishes, western food and nightly BBQs. No alcohol (!), as the resort like most on the islands is alcohol free. Some prices from my bills: Chicken Satay (dz.) – 18.00 MYR, Seafood Fried Rice – 12.00 MYR, Spicy Seafood Salad – 13.00 MYR, Green Curry Chicken – 20.00 MYR; Kue Tiaw Goreng – 8.00 MYR; Squid … – 20.00 MYR. Try their mango juice! Amazing. Average bill for dinner (3 adult) is around 100.00 MYR. The flambé dishes (i.e. seafood flambé) were not really good.

Our stay in Coral View Island Resort was during Muslim fasting month Ramadan and many restaurants were closed at the evening time for the «Sunset Prayer» and «Fasting Break». It seems Coral View Island Resort was the only restaurant services diner during this particular time and that’s why it was really overcrowded. Waiting time were around 30 minutes and shortage of waiters was too obvious. … When my friends came there month later these problems they said were gone.

Breakfast would cost 25.00 MYR per person per day and half price for children.

The service and food is good; overall it is good restaurant, but slightly overpriced.
