The Kelong location is undoubtedly nice, but the food is average and relatively expensive for Indonesia. Service is clearly oriented to processing diners as efficiently and quickly as possible. So. Go there for a pleasant outing, but keep your food expectations low. More pleasant is the adjoining bar, on its own separate pier. The drinks are expensive, but it's a... More

I've read about the high prices of food and drink on this island. So I was trying to be careful. Two of us wanted some seafood. There were no prices, the owner quoted us "40,000" rupiah and "45,000" respectively for red snapper and grouper. Well, that was for 100 grams or something like that. I had no idea that the... More

Had my birthday dinner there. What a beautiful view and we enjoyed the cocktails next door. Food was ok. Not the best I ever had but I was not disappointed.

Definitely a tourist spot as bus loads came one after another. Restaurant is spacious and sits on stilts over the water. On the evening we were there, the weather was rather warm and less breezy. The place was buzzling with tour groups. Food out of the kitchen was way too quick and the service staff weren't too friendly either. First... More

We had our dinner here while we were in the island (Bintan) and the food was great! We had a service van from our hotel and it was worth going there. Food service was fast/good, price is ok and the food are all delicious.

We wanted to get away from our Resort and see some of the local fare. We were recommended to eat here. I guess the "treat" was to see your dinner/seafood pulled from a small aquarium. Very touristy! My grouper was all bones and my wife's crab was all scales and bones. Plus, it was all very pricey. Nice scenery though.... More

The best pace to have your evening drinks in the entire resort. The bar has a very clear view of the sunset. The restaurant serves seafood and is fresh and very very tasty.
