La Sal at Casa del Mar Langkawi
La Sal is a fine dining restaurant on Pantai Cenang where you will find local food inspired by Mediterranean flavours and the local catch. Set within Casa del Mar Langkawi, we recommend the tangy, spicy barbecued tandoori chicken skewers – the meat is melt-in-your-mouth tender and succulent: paired with the fluffy, buttery naan bread, this dish is certainly comforting and makes a visit here worthwhile. What’s more, the restaurant also deserves high praise for its attentive service – although they are not too knowledgeable about wine selections, wait staff members more than make up for it with their cheerful, efficient service.
