The restaurant has a terrific location, right by the ocean. It is part of the Mandarin Oriental. Food is superb, French-American style, with many seafood options. It is a bit expensive, but certainly worth it!

The Spanish F & B Manager convinced us to have dinner in the Fresh on the beach side. A perfect place to see, by candle light, the fishermen catching their fish. The quality of food was very good as well as the wine. We had 2 perfect evenings during our 5 days' stay.

The 'Fresh' restaurant is located right on the beach, so it is the perfect place for a romantic dinner. Most attentive staff also help to make dinner here a unique experience. The menu is short, but offers something for every taste. There is just one 'but': The food is good, but not as outstanding, as the price-tag might suggest. It... More

Their chef is from Australia and the food is an Australian-Chinese mix. They also have a nice testing menu. If you have a chance ask for a table in "romantic area". They will seat you in a very quiet area, just by the sea, with an excellent view for the sunset.

A friend and I had just got finished a business trip in Beijing and were really looking forward to some R&R. The Mandarin is such a beautiful property, we were greeted so warmly upon arrival and the fantastic hospitality never ended. The breakfast buffet was great, tons of choices, just go early to avoid the throngs of children. The pools... More

The Restaurant Inside the Mandarin Oriental is located directly at the ocean and sitting outside is beautifull. You have some mosquitos to handle but this is ok. The fresh is a fish restaurant and they offer a good selection of fish. Our meals were small and priced high like Hongkong 50-60€ per course. Drinks are in the 10€ range each.... More

We have eaten here a few times over the years and in our experience there is no better restaurant in Sanya. The location on the beach is simply delightful, the service excellent and most of all the food superb! Last night we had the goats cheese tart and Hainan prawns for starters & snapper + spatchcock for mains, all dishes... More

Tasting menu was without doubt the best meal I've ever had in China. Thank you to the team for such a wonderful experience - we were not hotel guests but were made to feel on top of the world - birthday dinner, set on a special veranda where the waves crashed against the beach, and the sun set.... Food was... More

We were there twice.The food was excellent, the location is beautiful with a view on the sea.The service was good,always friendly and smiling.Just that they couldn't stop pouring fizzy water in a glass where there was still water and vice versa.That was a bit annoying.

Wonderful and idyllic. Tables are literally on the beach. Food is amazing and colourful. Of course it has a cost but totally worth it. Staff was welcoming and very friendly. Would definitely recommend if romantic night. Accessible by taxi. (10¥ from downtown Dadonghai)
