Atop the Bayview hotel [in central Georgetown] is a revolving restaurant and bar. The buffet supper- nourishes the body and soul. It provides interesting and diverse foods as well as displays great sunset views and all of Georgetown and beyond.

Well, reading the other reviews I'd say the cat is out of the bag! I had a pretty good dinner here. I knew I was getting beat up on the price before I sat down! Interesting enough. Many dishes I'd never seen before. I tried several. Nothing wrong with it. I believe the biggest problem here is that there was... More

We were staying at the hotel, so we decided to take a look at the revolving restaurant one afternoon to see what it is like and what they offer. The restaurant and he location is really nice.

I came to try this place out on New Years Eve but I'm not sure if 150+ RM was worth it with the food that they provided. There was nil seafood provided, range of food was very poor. It wasn't that great either, as I didn't have that much to eat. Although thumbs up with the dessert: Strawberry truffle &... More

The night view is great and overviews most of Georgetown. Food however is quite limited (possibly due to space constrictions).

We went for a buffet dinner here and the food was really disappointing. The curries were bland. Not good value for money. But the views are great, maybe just go to the bar for a drink.
