I really enjoyed the scenery and the sunset by the beach. We ordered some drinks to chill and my favourite one is Mojito Cocktail. Super Taste and it's quite pricy since it's a tourist spot. The guy staffs are friendly and polite towards the customers....Definitely it is a good spot to chill out and take photos with friends ! A must go bar & restaurant 😍More

Had a good table right near the beach. Service was good. Food was ok. Singers gave a good performance - nice old songs and gave the place a good ambiance.

This was exactly the kind of place we were looking for. We walked along the entire beach and saw a few very crowded beach bar type places, others were set so far back from the water they did not really count as beach bars, others...were bit too fancy/stuffy. Here the simple chairs and tables are set right on the sand, and food and drinks were served within 10 minutes of ordering. Very nice chicken satay, fried rice and beef rendang. Indian dishes also available. Cold beer and cocktails. Cannot beat this place for a simple meal on the sand, watching the sunset. Its at extreme western end of the beach so very quiet, far from the crowds.More

Do not be fooled by all positive reviews about this place. It is the most horrible restaurant bar in Penang. What were wrong 1) Filthy toilet, cleanliness in this restaurant is horrific. Can’t imagine how their kitchen would be 2) Unfriendly foreign staffs /waiters 3)...price is unreasonable for the quality of food and drinks you get 4) ordered mojito, and it literally tasted like a limau ice with no sugar , 5 Pizza hawaian and pepperoni tasted like instant pizza bought from supermarket and heated up in microwave What was good 1) nice beach view outside of the restaurant to watch sunset 2) nachos were tasty Overall, will not visit or recommend this place to anyone. Have no idea why people actually go here to spend money for lousy food and services.More

We stumbled across this place walking along the road and seeing the sign for a beach bar. Very friendly staff welcomed us and we went out to the beach. We relaxed all day with drinks and food. The restaurant looked very comfortable and we will...return to eat one evening during our stay. From the perspective of a beach bar it was great - very comfortable, friendly and welcoming and the prices were usual for the area. Recommended.More

This bar is located directly on the Batu Ferringhi beach just beyond the Bayview Hotel. It can be accessed from the main road or from the beach front. The place is welcoming and the staff are both cheerful and attentive. The menu caters for most...tastes with a variety of local and western food. The food itself is tasty and well proportioned - certainly worth a visit if you are in the area - especially at sunset where you have a view across the bay to the hills and the setting sun.More

Nice restaurant with delicious Asian and western food directly at the beach. Curry was very nice deep in flavor but not spicy.

Been there several times over the years. Noted that the quality of the food had dropped and the food are overpriced and serve wrongly. The workers are unattentive and half the time, they are daydreaming. Wouldn't go there anymore in the future. Not recommended.

Good atmosphere. Nice selction of food. Good portions. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Sit in or sit out on the beach. Nicely decorated inside with lots of coloured lights. Live music very good. Worth a visit. Enjoy.

Visited this place four times in the evening. Good selection of meals at reasonable prices. The food we got was good and large portions. Waiters were ok some happier looking than others but on the whole they were welcoming. On some nights there was live...music which was good, other nights music was playing. You can either eat inside or on the beach. Inside lots of coloured fairy lights makes it look magical.Worth a visit. They only accept CASH. The only really down side is the toilet! Other than that it is a good place to go.More

No set lunch offered. Most people visit this beach front place to drink cocktails, wine or beer and watch the sun set. Many stay and have dinner.
