Went there for a late lunch. Restaurant is not crowded. Love the outdoor sitting area with the lounge chairs facing the sea. Ordered 2 pizzas, fish and chips and a Nasi Goreng. Food is only average tasting.

A very nice spot to have dinner with live music and a nice view. Service however while pleasant was very slow and the serving sizes are very small, probably best to order one meal each and share some other plates if you want to fill up. Food tasted nice and was presented well.

My husband and I ate here twice in the evening and once for lunch. We enjoyed the meat skewers. I do recommend this restaurant.

Close to the pool so it's the easy choice, but the food is not great at all. The service is quite slow too.

I was not impressed with the spread for breakfast at the Magellan Sutera - it didn't have a very big range of choices and the food itself was so-so in taste.
