Tip top restaurant is exactly near the beach, in nice place. There always some young travellers and great atmosphere. We like service and cleaness. But, sorry, from food we felt a bit disappointed. May be because expected too much - we read old references in...More

This is a nice place to hang out at the Tip of Borneo, even on rainy days. The food is delicious, for breakfast I'd recommend is the healthy combo. We had the curry and noodles for dinner and really enjoyed it. The kitchen looks very...More

A small and friendly place right by a very cozy beach. The beach has few people and sets for a relaxing time. The food in the bar is simple but affordable and provides a good cold beer.

When in a place like Borneo I see "fresh" juice in menu, costing about 1,7 usd /glass, somehow I think it's real juice, instantly made from the fresh fruit. Well, I realise, there may be some water and sugar added. But I totally don't expect...More
