We ate here one night and the location is great but the place was a bit empty so it lacked a bit of atmosphere. The food was very nice and the assistance making our selection was really helpful as neither of us are very familiar...when making fish choices. Definitely recommendMore

Good variety of food but the price is very steep. You have to take shuttle to reach here. This is halal restaurant.

Very nice location overlooking the ocean and a very scenic bar. A long bridge out to the sea offers a great view for photo taking. The restaurant is very breezy so no air conditioning is needed. Natural air is always the best. Food was fresh...and nicely cooked. Whole fish steamed fish was awesome. Very juicy and crunchy and sweet. Enjoyed every bit of it.More

Enjoyed tasty meal of pineapple fried rice and red grouper Hong Kong style between two of us. Fish came from tanks under the restaurant. We found the “small” portions quite sizable. The restaurant is over the water and open air so nice views all around....The staff were attentive and helpful with recommendations. The total bill was about US$100 total so a bit pricier but we have no regrets.More

Best place to view sunset. Calypso Floating Bar is located off the restaurant. Need to order drinks to sit at the bar, but it was totally worth it. We ordered bites - Korean chili fried chicken for IDR130,000 from the restaurant and it was good...too!More

This is a great seafood place situated at Nirwana Gardens. You will have to take the shuttle bus from Nirwana Gardens Entrance to go to this place. Situated in the middle of the sea, it has a nice view while having your meal. There are...a variety of seafood dishes. Fresh seafood. You can choose the crab from the tank they had kept and it is priced according to the weight of the crab. Price is equivalent to Singapore price. Not cheapMore

Pretty overpriced, seasonal seafood at exorbitant prices. Live prawns IDR 125,000/100g, crabs 850,000/kg. Felt like the manager gave us the high end of the seasonal rates knowing that we are tourists.. The portions are huge for the carbs, small for the greens and others. Very...generous with prawns (a lot in their fried rice & noodles as well), fresh gonggong, good crayfish but very little meat in it.. overall good price, clean & chill ambience but have to book a car in and overall extremely pricey. We ordered a medium crayfish, medium prawn, small gonggong, small fried rice & noodle, sambal kangkong small, claypot beancurd, 4 coconuts and our bill came up to a shocking SGD $200++. Even more expensive than Singapore! Fresh seafood but not sure if it’s worth for the price.More

A seafood restaurant out on the ocean on stilts with live seafood pens sounds pretty cool, right? I think in the past it used to be (I last went here in 2002) but it is now looking pretty sad and tired, which also comes across...loud and clear with the staff who seem like they can barely be bothered to be there. The menu is surprisingly short of variety. It is essentially fish, prawns, sea snails, crab or lobster with 3 choices of preparation. The same types of preparation you can get anywhere in Indonesia or Singapore. And that's it. Because this is a prime tourist area, and within the Nirwana gardens resort it is also quite expensive.More

This is one of the more popular restaurant in Nirwana Resort area. Well patronized on a Sat evening when visited. The set menu for six was without vegetable dish, it was good for about 7 average diners. The seafoods were fresh. Although price was high,...service staff were attentive spoke with little English and Chinese. Overall it met our desired expectation.More

It is relatively high as most of the guests are foreigner from Singapore, so you will be charged with Singapore standard.
