First was in September 2016 and second was in September 2017, both in great experienced! I'm a vegetarian, and they served me vegetarian foods even with mock meat that really surprisingly!

We had a pit-stop between the mangrove swamp tour and fireflies at this place for dinner. The food was average, definitely better food back home in Singapore, and the prices weren't cheap. My only key comment about Bintan is that the prices are high. Very...More

Enjoyable meal. Sambal Kang king cooked really nicely. Whole fish Hong Kong style Wife devoured. Kids loved salt and pepper calamari and crispy chicken. Seafood fried rice also popular.

Crispy chicken was served cold and the black pepper crab tastes too buttery with an almost rancid taste. Nothing else stood out. First and last visit for us.

This is a must do for eating with atmosphere. Service and food quality really good, Prices on the high side and, even knowing that there are cheaper sea food restaurants 30 mins away by taxi, we decided to return to this interesting place.

We went as couple for the sunset and enjoyed it a lot. I think it's a must have during your stay on Bintan but remember is not cheap. As couple you will spend around 1.200k IDR.

Let down. Food is so-so, way over priced. Could have eaten better elsewhere. Ordered the black pepper crabs flavour is good but not worth the journey & the price.

Stayed at Nirwana and had one dinner at Kelong Seafood Restaurant. Recommended to take shuttle bus (30min interval) than walking in the total darkness for 20min. The ambiance is good. However, over numbered tables and chairs make it feels crowded, while the restaurant is barely...More

I just walked in when I visited there for dinner. I don't think you need to make a booking unless you go there during a peak tourist season.
