Great fish, and lovely to be able to choose your fish, get there early otherwise the grouper and red snapper will be all gone, my only issue is the toilets they are disgusting, so my advice don't drink too many buckets of beer otherwise you will not eat again after.

It's great that you get to choose your own seafood and then it will be cooked for you the way that you like. However, the way that the seafood is prepared is just OK. Also, don't go when it's holiday or end of the month - too crowded.

Food is pricey but good. Great view of the sea and ports. Go at night. You'll get to see city lights while enjoying fresh seafood. I had a bad experience with the service though. It takes ages to get your food and drinks. Oh and they can totally forgot about your order too. A shame, really.

Ableit the place being abit rundown, it has good atmosphere. Seaside view and cooling sea breeze. Food is resonably priced and tastes good. Ask the staff for recommendations The deep fried silver fish was great. Please be prepared for slow and poor service during peak times at dinner service.

Although it was a stormy evening we manage to find the place... We pick out dinner from the boat showcase and had a table facing the open sea. The dishes were superb and the steamed Garoupa Hong Kong style was well prepared and tasty! A view into the open sea with lights from the ships harbored there were awesome although... More

I was taken to the Mawilla by work colleagues as I wanted to have seafood for lunch. Service is a bit slow but when the food is that good, you forget about it. I will definitely recommend you try the Satak with salt and pepper. i absolutely loved it.
