There are two Bintan Brother Seafood restaurants on the island. One is near Simpang Lagoi (around the Bintan Resort Gate Area), and the other is in Teluk Sebong. Both offer delicious seafood. The Simpang Lagoi location also has a food court nearby, but it operates only in the evenings.

Meanwhile, the Bintan Brother Seafood in Teluk Sebong offers a kelong-like experience, allowing you to enjoy the sea view while indulging in your seafood feast.

3. Kelong Mangrove Restaurant

Located in the Bintan Resort area, Teluk Sebong, the Kelong Mangrove Restaurant offers a delectable selection of seafood delicacies.

What makes it unique is its location on a kelong (stilt house over the water). To reach the restaurant, you’ll need to take a short boat ride of just five minutes.

It’s perfect for those who have just finished a mangrove tour and want to relish some fresh seafood. If you’re staying in the Bintan Resort area, booking a taxi is a breeze.

The friendly driver will assist with your transfer, boat ride, and even table reservations. Boat transfers are complimentary.

4. BBM Seafood BBQ Restaurant

BBM Seafood BBQ Restaurant isn’t located on a kelong, but it’s conveniently situated in Plaza Mall Lagoi Bay, just a 5-minute drive from Lagoi Bay Beach.

This is an ideal spot for a seafood lunch or dinner if you’re in the Lagoi Bay area. It’s also within walking distance of Grand Lagoi, The Sanchaya, and Kamuela Lagoi Bay Villa, as it’s situated right inside the mall.

For those staying elsewhere, transportation will be needed to reach this restaurant.

5. Family Kelong Restaurant

If you’re looking for affordable seafood dining on Bintan Island, Family Kelong Restaurant is a great choice. This local seafood restaurant, location not in Bintan Resort area, is strategically located and popular among tourists.

It’s only a 10-minute drive from Blue Lake Bintan Sand Dunes. Many tourists visit Blue Lake Bintan and then stop here for lunch. They also serve fresh seafood, just like the other seafood restaurants.

Like Family Kelong Restaurant, Ciu Yong Seafood Restaurant is another local eatery on Bintan Island, about a 15-minute drive from Blue Lake Bintan. They specialize in Chinese-style seafood dishes.

If you plan to visit, we highly recommend booking private return taxi since the location is a bit remote, and there are no taxi services in the area.
