Mass produced food that was expensive and disappointing. Don't go there! We made a booking but there was no record. The wine choice was ridiculously expensive and ordinary. The food was average and drowned in sources. In particular the scallops were inedible

Went there for dinner with the kids. Was arranged by the Villa. Seafood was very fresh and nicely seasoned. Cooking methods were good too. Midway during the dinner there was a thunderstorm and blackout, but quickly resumed.

Prices has gone up over the years due to its popularity. Food is above average but terribly overpriced. A bowl of soup can cost minimally SGD20. A can of bintan beer there is even more expensive than in a hotel.

Generally Good food and lovely ambience but not cheap: One note of caution - the crab (which I gather is the signature dish) is amazingly expensive. We found that we paid Rp.680000 for one crab!

One of the best place for a perfect romantic/ family dinner. Feel the sea breeze, beautiful sunset and sky full of star here. But I have to say that the food taste was pretty standard with that kind of price.

Nice food and great atmosphere. The range was a little small (and the menu confusing), but we enjoyed our lunch here.

Coming from Singapore a seafood paradise, I feel that standard of food here is just average or below average and the prices are way too high. If there is a next time I will travel out of the resort to eat.

Built on stilts just above the sea, a unique blend of Chinese and Indonesian culinary style. The only place to go in Bintan which has the richest and freshest seafood while offering panoramic view of South China Sea. Open daily for lunch and dinner from 11:00 AM - 10:30 PM.
