Went to Jacky's seafood restaurant and had lunch. Fantastic food and good service, but it's the most expensive lunch we had in South Korea. Lunch for 5 persons and we paid 230000 WON (206 USD).

there is a restaurant called "busan myung mool hoe jib(부산명물회집)" where my family from grandpa went. Very local but excellent quality of korean style sashimi dish and fish broth(excellent), a bit overpriced. We bare the price since it's very unique and uncomparable.

It opens through out the weeks and the best time to go after 12 noon until 10pm. Enjoy the sea brisk just behind it before you place your order. They have also renovate the area and 1st floor will be the dining floor.
