I t is the most authentic local cuisine, tasty and cheap food that I tasted in this island. I really loved it. All the noodles and the rice plates were great. The fish barbecue that I tried I would say it was ok but nothing special. The staff is really friendly and they can help you with everything you need.

Easy going staff who were very helpful. Food was good and the eating area is a nice place to chill between meals before a big day of diving.

This restaurant is on Besar island, after the coral view resort, the last one (there are about 4). The food is the best here amongst all the restaurants there, and the smoothies particularly coconut are heaven!

One of the good BBQs on the island. The staffs are humble but they should be more knowledgeable and friendlier. Great sunset view! :)

Good for breakfast, lunch or diner. Kind personnel, good food and reasonable prices. Good for kids especially the pancakes in the morning. Nice slush drinks with crushed ice. You can sit dry when there is a tropical thunderstorm.

Nice place for a local rice meal or a burger. Great milkshakes. Don't be in a rush - service can be a bit slow. Nice sunset view from the cove.
