Ordered over $100 of grilled seafood which was delivered 1 hour later and was super cold and uneatable. Never going to use this grill again.

I stayed at the Barat, so my vouchers needs to be spent here. Even though the meal voucher is cheaper compared to if you order ala carte, your selection for the set menu is limited, so your vouchers are only enough during the duration of...your package. They slashed a whole page off of the menu, so some of the items are not available. Overall, the cost is on the pricier side, and each item are mostly individual servings. Some chicken dishes only provide wing part (with the exception of the chicken rice, which is usually the leg part). Restaurant is very busy during dinner time (7-9pm), so staff can get overwhelmed with the amount of guests dining in. If you can, get a seat by 6:30pm and if you want BBQ, you can wait until BBQ stall opens at 7pm.More

Fine experience. Atmosphere is laid back. Service was swiftly and friendly. Enough choices on the menu. Had the Malaysia famous Nasi Lemak and found it okayish. There is enough shade and the view is fine. Since it is also a resort restaurant enough taxi boats...nearby.More

BBQ dinner here was super and I think the chef has more experience so they know how to cook well. Love the mexican chicken, lamb, chicken wings. And for beer and other alcohol you can find here too.

Awesome BBQ at Barat Resto. Place your order near the bbq pit for fish or swuid or lamb. The seafood will be weighed in front of you and pending for your agreement before its bbqed. BBQ set comes with rice & coleslaw. The burgers looks...awesome too.More

The restaurant was packed when we were there. They had to open more tables to accommodate us. The setting's pretty relaxed and lively. Everything's great on the menu from the starters and salads to pizza and BBQ. Service was quick despite the busy crowd.

Good selection and quite a good number of choices for vegetarians. They offer a BBQ in the evenings. Staff are friendly and accommodating but service can be a bit slow. Worth having a meal there .

Food was good and the scenery was nice although it was very disappointing to see that they still used plastic straws. And no matter how many times we asked the waitress to give us no straw, they always did.

Food is ok but the barbecue is too monotone. They should offers few types of grilled rather than single taste for all types of fishes/seafoods. My son love it’s pizza

A bit more expensive than other places but good food if you get the Malaysian dishes. Nasi lemak, roti canai, mee memak, fried rice, chicken and rice platter all good. BBQ dishes all excellent - esp the grilled squid and grilled barramundi. Yum. Other dishes...are not so great - avoid the butter chicken in particular. Service good and beer most appreciated.More

We stayed at a neighbouring resort but find ourselves coming here almost exlusively for all our meals. We like the resort style ambience and outdoor tables under the trees. There is a wide variety of finger food, local,Asian and western options on the ala carte...menu and the food served are all tasty and to our liking . Beer is served here ,Rm15 for a big can . We really like the coconut frappe or shakes. Service at the restaurant is prompt and friendly and open all day from morning breakfast until late at night. We recommend this place alright.More

We stayed 3 nights in Besar and had BBQ dinner every night at the Barat. There was always a choice of squid, fish, tiger prawns as well as some meat options, along with vegetable skewers, corn on the cob but you could also limit your...choice of side dish to rice and salad that came for free when ordering BBQ proteins. They also served fresh beers and cocktails, setting is very romantic and seems to be the meeting point on this side of Besar.More

Little terrasse near the sea. Service a little bit long ( if you want BBQ, order as soon as you arrived), but BBQ fish is not expensive and so good !! They also serves fresh beer (10RM/can), which is not common on Perhentian Island. We...were at the PIR but as the food was not good there, we came every night at the Barat.More
