Had my dinner once here. Tried the Squid BBQ Set for RM31 with Potato, and orange drink inclusive in the set. On my last night here ordered a Mai Tai, a bit too strong for me but it was alright :)

The lunch and dinner menu was good. They had a good variety of fresh juices and shakes. They had a variety... More

I visited this place purely by accident with a friend as we were walking back from coral beach to our accommodation in Long Beach. Ombak cafe do free movie screening every evening! It was a great way to end our trip, we went for the last two nights of our stay and were not disappointed. Fairly up-to-date movies were chosen... More

We chose this place as it was one of the few that serve alcohol on this side of the island. The setup is great: sand on foot, both outdoor and indoor seating and right on the ocean. I'm not one to whinge but a few of things made the experience poor. While most of the younger staff were excellent, talkative... More

Wow, this place is like a great looking place, you arrive on Coral Beach, and Ombak stands out. You then order food, and wow, you just wish you hadn't, ugh... Terrible pizza, crap burgers, and the Malaysian food isn't much better. Oh, good Banana split and double espresso. Final night I paid and put a Thai note in by mistake,... More

As I said above, Nice restaurant with nice staff and good food. You can sit outside or inside and they serve you in a very nice way. They even remember what you had during the week.

This is one of the most expensive restaurants on the island. They charge even more for the western food. My friend and I ordered the chicken satay there and we both got food poisoning. It's fun watching movies in the open air at night though but I'd recommend just ordering drinks there. There are alot of musquitos after dark so... More
