Xian Hai By The Sea Cantonese restaurant presents fine Chinese cuisine in its purest forma, guests can dine on a series of illuminated floating platforms. The custom designed spaces, with teak interior and rich upholstery are covered with a shaded canopy
Date of dinner: February 5, 2019Food & beverage: XianHai is one of the best Cantonese - Chinese restaurants where Iâve ever eaten. The vegetarian starters and vegetables tasted very fresh and aromatic. Especially the four-cornered beans, a Hainanese specialty, were a completely new flavor experience: somewhere between bean, mushroom, bamboo and nut... The tiger grouper fish was served in a warm and light soy sauce and its flesh was juicy and soft and a perfect match with the Hainanese green beans. The beef ribs were yummy, well cooked and tender like pulled beef. I wish the portion would have been bigger... :)Service: Our dinner took place on an exclusive and beautifully decorated float in the sea water lagoon of the EDITION hotel, a one minute private boat ride from the restaurant. The captain and the waiter were both very welcoming and and polite. Already on the very short boat ride we were offered traditional Chinese Pu Er tea and chilled fruits as refreshments. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly throughout the dinner and also tried to stay in the background to give us the best possible privacy on the float which measures approximately 20 square meters and can host up to 6 people for dinner. Location: BEAUTIFUL. A truly unique place for romantic dinners or small family gatherings. The view of the lights from the surrounding hotel facilities at night and the sea breeze are mesmerizing. Would I eat there again? - Yes, absolutely.

Seafood grill Beach Barbacoa is inspired by the Jimbaran Bay in Bali. With sand underfoot and an eclectic mix of furniture, itâs a lively and fun spot for all ages. Dine in barefoot luxury under starry skies. Take in the enchanting views as the sun sets i
To me, this is a seasonal restaurant (because this place may not be available when weather is not pleasant enough). Most of the tables are outdoor and on sand, overlooking a live band with performance from 6pm onwards. This outlet definitely brings you an unique experience. Check out the weather forecast and book a table there in advance. What makes Barbacoa exceptional is the team!! Letâs start from their head chef - Made! He is in the kitchen all the time to ensure the quality. By the end of the meal, Chef Made will also come out to greet guest, as much table as possible, checking satisfaction in person, wanting to know more guest comment. Besides that, our table got served by Maranda, Catherine, and SS. These few young ladies and man are so attentive, they always carry smile on their face and happy to assist with all kinds of enquires. We also met Teana, the Manager there, she gave us good recommendations on selections. And did not oversell us on food. This humble and sincere service made us feel trust and well taken care. We will definitely come back to dine in this beautiful restaurant again!
Specialties from Southeast Asia.S.E.A. showcases the best of South-East Asian cuisine and live seafood. The restaurantâs highlights include Thai salads, curries, stir-fried noodles, and chilli crab.
Since staying in the Shangri-La Hotel, it was very easy for me to have a dinner just downstairs at S.E.A.First time I came rather late, just before closing there Buffet (only offered on Tuesdays). But they were able to fulfill my wishes within fifteen minutes, so I could enjoy a nice dinner that evening.Second time I came for a la carte dining, and selected some superb fish and other things.(The only I didn't like was their "Som Tam", which was too much accommodated to their many Chinese guests and not original.)To repeat: a fish catch from the day, was outstanding. - As was the service from their staff!
This restaurant is HORRIBLE, I suggest to avoid it. The food is very low quality and there were not many choices especially for kids: I saw cooking pasta with GLUTAMATE!!!!! The fresh fish was full of sand, so not properly cleaned and washed...and so on.. The service was the worst thing: we arrived around 7, many tables were still empty but "booked" (even if during the whole evening they remained empty ), so the chief waiter said "sorry, no tables available". I suggested to add a small table for us (there was a lot of room in the garden, and many extra chairs available, and let going away 4 persons is not a wise decision...), they said "no". I insisted many times and then they accepted to bring a small table for us. Later they added a few more tables for other people (so my request was not so stupid!). We asked for a cup of steamed rice for my kid (who was hungry !!). We had to ask to 3 different waiters in Mandarine, in English, showing a picture on the phone. The cup of rice came after 30 min. Our dinner was awful! AVOID THIS RESTAURANT!!!
