The best seafood restaurant in Territory of Labuan. Everything from drinks to main courses are fresh and tasty. Butter cooked prawns is the best one in menu. Good looking of sea and harbour would make fantastic experience.

One of the places I bring my friends to. Try the salted egg silver fish, Nyonya style fried fish, dried chilli Satak, belacan sting ray. It's usually packed from 7pm to 9pm, so try to call to make reservations. You can even order first and have your food served when you arrive.

The highlights for us were the slipper lobsters and the vegetables - Khai Lan and broccoli but also very good fried rice .The squid had too much batter and the lemon... More

Seafood is fresh but none are rared in a fish tank or anything like that. Tasty food, overall. Price is reasonable. Selection of seafood is not that wide and if you come a bit late like 8.30 p.m. for dinner, most selection especially the fish, is gone. Service is so s.l.o.w. especially during peak times as they are so busy... More

Lots of seafood which you can choose yourself and not to expensive. The restaurant is at the beach side and open (no zircon). They sell beer and you can bring your own wine (corkage RM10)
