Loved the food, the service and the ambiance here. Highly recommended. Best food was the sea food satay sticks, but chicken and beef dishes of others at the table were great. It was a bit hot during the day, but everything else made up for it

Lovely oceanfront setting overlooking sea. Generally considered the best seafood restaurant in town. Extensive local seafood menu. Nice setting & attentive service. Limited/no English, but menu has photos.

This is the third or fourth time I have come here and this restaurant has never disappointed me. Fantastic curries as well as fresh fish. Service can be slow sometimes but you should only come here to enjoy a meal socialising or celebrating a good day

Went there to entertained a visiting family, end up with a delay timing of food serving, missing 2 items not served. Cant blame them, since the crowd quite a lot but at least you can try to add more waiter, especially who can take order. Because everytime we need to order, we must wait for another person to do so

Located in ruko banjar. Outdoor restaurant with a nice beach view. Best to visit during sunset. Suitable place for a couple to have dinner. Romantic :)

Food was excellent, although I don't recommend lobster because for the price, the fresh fish would be more satisfying as well as cheaper. The place is clean and staff were friendly. We found a hair in the lobster, which wasn't a huge deal but my girlfriend wasn't pleased. When we notified the waiter (just to make them aware) he kind... More

The place was nice, but a bit difficult to find. Their food was okay. Not worth the price. But the ambiance was real nice, candlelight dinner by the beach.
