I have to agree with the above views. The view is fabulous, the beer when it came out without a glass was cold, but the food was fairly average - under cooked pasta on a dirty plate & service was MIA. Wifi worked and I spent an hour there using this before going inside to find someone to pay the... More

Called in for some food whilst staying nearby. Food was ok but very pricy for a snack and could have been bought elsewhere nearby for half the price.

Good for quick snacks and beers, overseeing the sunset at Damai Beach. Service was a bit slow and inexperienced, and the outdoor seating area was pretty stuffy. Waiter asked us to pay the bill the moment food was served. They also had a strange rule that credit card payment is only accepted for RM60 and above.

The food here is average, the service is average but the drinks are absolutely shocking. I tried JD, this was watered down, I tried vodka (house pour too) this was watered-down to the extent you couldn't even taste anything. You are one safe to drink beer here as cocktails are you guessed it, watered-down too.

We had our lunch here. Everything looks good at first until we get in. It's so hot even when the aircond is on, so we requested to on the fan but they said it's not working or something I'm not sure but that's not a big problem. The thing is that their food tasted horrible but super expensive. The chicken... More

The food is awful and before you are finished, the bill is presented. There is no atmosphere and the staff are not great. Not worth the visit.
