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

The seafood was fresh, good variety, cooked efficiently and cheap. The 5 of us ate crab, two types of fish, prawn, 2 types of vegetables, calamari, rice and drinks and it only costs RM250

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

I liked the variety and prices, didn't like cheating though. If you order three shells, pointing them with your finger and then 4 right halves and two left halves arrive on your table- you know that something is not right.

Spend my mid Saturday afternoon having some finger food n beers. Atmosphere is great. Got more lively during night fall. Would recommend to give this place a shout. Closet place to enjoy beers and overlooking the sea.

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.
