Visited here as a part of the guided mangrove boat tour. Did not find suitable for vegetarians though non-veggies might enjoy. Offers limited variety of fish cuisine (starting from ~RM15..), fresh juices available ( ~ RM7). Do not use washrooms!. Very unclean and could not bolt the doors,

The food was ok but not the best. Fish farm was rather disappointing. But the location is great. Eating on a floating restaurant in the mangroves is a lovely experience.

I had lunch here on a Geopark Mangrove Boat Trip. The restaurant specializes in seafood. The food was nothing to write home about - however it may be better if you order à la carte. But the setting is special: this place is built on a wooden structure floating on the river.

It was part of the package from Dev's Adventure Mangrove Kayak, where we had lunch before the kayaking session. The food was just average, though there's a fish farm where you could see rather large fishes. Surprisingly, the place, though floating on water, was not as shaky as expected and was quite stable.

I have visited here several times for lunch and whilst it is a very simple lunch, the food is always good and service is prompt. Nice photo opportunity.

We visited here for lunch as part of our day tour around the mangroves. It was interesting and great to take photos. Lots of people were eating and it was good to get off the boat and out of the rain! I ordered the fish soup and fried rice. The soup was delicious but I didn't enjoy the rice. The... More

Nothing very special about this restaurant that floats on the sea except the funny name of the restaurant of Hole in the wall. The only thing interesting here is that you can order the fish right out of the net in the sea and get them freshly cook.

Stopover for lunch as part of the mangrove tour. Lunch was free and as it was just a plate of fried chicken nuggets with rice and soup, it being a "fishing village" I decided to order a steamed fish dish. I was surprise when I saw the fish taken out from the freezer and when it arrived cooked, the meat... More

Food came as a package of our mangrove kayak tour. Had the option of spicy/non-spicy prawn/chicken/vegetables with fried rice. Each meal comes with a drink and fruits for dessert. Food was exceptionally satisfying after a tiring kayak trip. Nice environment with fish farm for visit.

the food was ok, small portions and no fish - which surprised me. However, the chicken broth was tasty.
