Good atmosphere but average food

Located by the seaside, the atmosphere is there. Food is relatively fresh but taste could only be described as average. Nothing to really shout about. Service is good and people are friendly.

Quite a big place touching seafront & a bit away from downtown. Vey quick service & looks popular joint for big parties. Outdoor area can be windy at times. We ate variety of sea food & the price is a bit extensive but it is surely worth it.

The seafood are fresh and tasty but serving is average and bit slow. It is nice scenery eating next to seaside, listening to wave batter to the shore with breeze.

Been there with colleagues for dinner. Fresh seafood and quite tasteful. Served beer and not really suitable for muslim. On top of that, they have a good view and spectacular at night

Had my dinner during my recent visit to Labuan at Mawilla. Overall was an average experience, seafood was ok in terms of freshness, also in terms of taste. The Nestum prawns had too much Nestum, prawns were small. Vege was ok, fish wasn't too bad. Overall was not too impressed, though the location was good as it overlooks the ocean... More

Very busy for weeknight. Service very slow. Under staff perhaps. Great fresh Satak best done salted deep fried. Snapper good steamed soya. Cheesy tiger prawns baked. Price on steep side.

I love this restaurant in theory- beach side restaurant serving fresh fish to order, but the staff really don't seem to care and they don't seem to understand the concept of 'no sauce', or 'no mushrooms'. It has all the potential, but I always feel a little disappointed when I leave. I just want plain salmon, broccoli and sauce on... More
