Description: Tip Top Beach Bar and Restaurant is part of the Tampat Do Aman eco resort. Tip Top is based on beautiful Kalampunian beach, 2km west from the tip of Borneo.Tip Top serve popular Western and Asian dishes, best sellers include Hinava, chicken or beef Rendang and grilled chicken sandwiches with thai sweet chilli mayonnaise.We serve a range of refreshing fruit juices and hot drinks, beers and wines are available too. Prices range from RM 2 – 12.Tip Top is the ideal base whilst enjoying the beach for the day, with clear blue waters and white sand, the local beaches are some of the best in Sabah. Our large wooden deck is the perfect place to stick around and watch the sunset and enjoy the stars and fireflies as the dark sets in, plus a bonfire on the beach is a great way to finish the day.Tip Top is run by friendly locals who offer great service, members of the team speak superb English and are full of advice and information on the surrounding area.From Tip Top it is possible to walk up the beach to the Tip of Borneo in about 20 minutes, and enjoy one of Borneo’s most famous landmarks.

I didn't eat here but the staff was nice, the menu was decently priced, and they had the best Wi-Fi in the area...

We stayed in a little chalet next to Tip Top Restaurant and enjoyed their food and the company of fellow travelers. The girls (that's how Howard, the owner, refers to them) of Tip Top are very helpful and bloody good cooks. The breakfast plate with fresh fruit, toast and kaya is very good and so is their Nasi Goreng. Here's a link from gogosabah, with pictures of the restaurant and their menu: http://gogosabah.com/tip-top-bar/

Topat Do Amans restaurant, Tip Top, on the tip of Borneo deserves max Stars for food, experience, creative thinking and an absolute unique atmosphere. Howard and Lorina are working very hard together with the rest of the staff - beeing it volunteers or hired. We stayed at Tip of Borneo beachresort, but had all our meals on Tip Top.

We stayed nearby Tip Top and the owner Howard’s for a week, and we enjoyed our meals at Tip Top (Howard’s) almost every day – it was the best food we had in Asia; fresh tuna-steaks, lamb-chops and even cheesecake for a very decent price! We traveled around southeast Asia for 7 months and this was the best food and one of our best experiences – at the best price. And Howard is just great such a great guy with his heart at the right place – looking out for the locals and the environment. Even if you don’t stay at Howard’s place, he is willing to go out of his way to help you find both accommodation and things to do in the area. He actually ended up marrying us in the most beautiful scenery with the most romantic ceremony ever!! ! Tip Top and Howard’s jungle camp comes highly recommended :)

We tried Havana - the local fish mix with lemon juice and onion, seved in cold with hot toast, I like it! Must try!
We also took the spaghettini and beef burger, both just taste so so!
If you are beer lover, must try the Vietnam beer, very smooth!
They also provide other services like longushouse rented, jugly trekking, snorkeling, even badminton racket rented and volleyball rented.
Chicken curry just so so as well.
