Casa del Mar is a truly wonderful boutique hotel where standards and service are absolutely first class and these qualities have been carried through to the dining experience at their al la carte restaurant, La Sal.

We dined here on four occasions during our two week stay and have to say that every meal we had was fantastic. What complimented the food was that on three of the evenings we were blessed with clear skies so we could dip our feet in the sand, sit under a star filled sky, savour the food delights and sample a glass or two of well priced and flavoursome wine.... Heaven!

There is a well balanced menu offering something for all tastes but our favourites are the soft shell crab entree (and we both usually hate crab) followed by the rack of lamb which is the tenderist we have ever had. During our stay, the recently appointed new chef introduced a new menu choice which thankfully still has our favourites on it but also has other dishes which we look forward to trying when we return.

Service for us is just right being not too hurried and not too slow, the experience here is not just about the food but soaking up the wonderful setting and ambiance. If we wanted an express meal then we would choose to go to MacDonalds! The staff are simply delightful ( as are all of the staff at Casa) and they really strive to please. We witnessed a very rude couple agressively verbally attacking Halim over some issue and in front of other guests and he and the other nearby staff were clearly very upset and took the criticsm very personally. Yes service is not top speed but this is Langkawi and if you want food on the table in 5 minutes then Langkawi is not for you. Life on this island is about chilling and getting off of the rapidly moving treadmill life at home and spending relaxed quality time with friends/your partner whilst enjoying the delights of this beautiful island.

Cost is high end for Cenang but in our opinion it is good value for the food and experience.

As I write this review it is taking me back to those wonderful evenings at La Sal and I am already counting the days to when we return in November.

Sincere thanks to everyone for superb meals and a wonderful and memorable holiday and many best wishes to Robert in his new venture.

Our first visit was for a lunch time snack based on TA reviews and location. Food was tasty, decent selection and good atmosphere.

We decided to book in for dinner for the next night and had a table on the beach with our feet in the sand and mood lighting. Great location to sit and watch the sunset while enjoying our entrees of prawn ceviche and Caesar salad. We decided on Stonier Pinot Noir wine as we drink this at home. Reasonably priced at MYR 149. Our mains were Malay tasting platte and beef rendang. Finished on an old favourite of banana fritters. What a meal! Food was delicious with atmosphere to match.

When you compare the restaurant to what else is on offer along the beach street this really is a diamond in the rough.

A must try, great location,food to match and a reasonable price for a wonderful dinner.

During our stay at Casa del Mar we ate both lunch and dinner on several occasions at La Sal - we were never disappointed - presentation and quality of food was excellent. The service was attentive and, as with the hotel, the staff can't do enough for you. Unfortunately we leave today, because I could easily visit this restaurant again. By the way I had Schnapper on several occasions done different ways - beautiful.
