Waiter behaves like a wannabe 5* waiter, but the important thigs he cannot see. Further I asked to make sure the Mango Salad and my Taiwan chicken will be really spicy and he informed me they use a very spicy recipe for both, but what they served was a disaster and not at all spicy. Location itself is nice and... More

We tried Putumayo on two occasions for dinner. It is right on the strip & we dined around sunset when the birds gather in the nearby trees and the sound can be quite loud but natural. We had mixed reactions to our food on the first evening which is partly why we returned a second time. I had the Peking... More

Decent dining area with attractive prices on menu; portion served is unacceptably small and not compatible with the price charged. HOWEVER, if you guys are around the area with thick wallet, this is the restaurant you guys should never miss. Disappointed with the portion, we left with half full stomachs filled with the best food in town!

Went to putumayo twice with family because their garlic butter style lobster and prawn was so delicious. Stuff is friendly as well. Overall cleanliness is good. I was surprise how little customers is there for a great restaurant like this. They deserve more customers. I would give them a 8.5/10

As mentioned before, underwhelming would be an apt description. Nice enough food but hardly anything more than a UK Chinese restaurant, with fresh seafood. Food is reasonable, as are the prices compared to the big hotels, but even allowing for price differences there were no 'wows' or even 'that was great'. Service fair to middling.

Waiter was somewhat miserable. Nice enough place nothing wow about the food. I struggled with the prawns as they were served in their shells, not deveined in the sauce, so really difficult to eat. A few restaurants served their prawns this way, i know it looks more in the bowl but shelling and prepping prawns would make it far easier... More

We visit the restaurant 2 days before. I don't eat seafood or fishes and I had a chicken with vegetables and pineapple and it was really tasty! My friends tried different seafood dishes and they also enjoyed! Very kind and fast staff in a very good decorated restaurant! It worth to visit!

Good service in a clean modern restaurant. Fresh seafood the specialty but try the Beijing Duck - nearly authentic.

We ate here 3 times whilst staying locally, which speaks for itself. For a non fish eater, starters were a bit difficult, but the chicken in mango main dish was divine, great option of Chinese dishes too. For my husband, the fish was excellent, and as a previous review has mentioned, wine is a reasonable price. Good ambience, excellent service,... More

There is no doubts that this is the most stylish restaurant that doesn't belong to the 5-star hotel. Have been here twice. Very decent food, wide range of fresh seafood and fish. Friendly staff.
