Good Taste but not the best in town

Yes, fresh fish, cooked in your preferred way, but not a big variety in the menu, over priced and over rated as there many other better places for Sea Food around Kuwait.

Walk up to the counter, take a look at the day's catch, select your choice, and they'll prepare it for you the way you like it most . . . and that could include the entire fish! Large restaurant, plenty of space, smells a little fishy, and they need a better selection of sides.

Went there with a group of people and we had a wide selection of fish, prawn and lobster all spiced and cooked perfectly. The resturant has a nice view of the beach

We visited with out of country guests who wanted to try seafood. The prices were very high. The atmosphere and decor was dated. The service was poor. Scallops shrunk to pea size on arrival. The muscles tasted dirty. We will not be returning. Many better locations in Kuwait to take guests for seafood.

The Prawns (Shrimps) in creamy garlic sauce were divine. The calamari (octopus) was a tad chewy but sauce was delicious. The fish we chose was yummy and the accompanied was nice.

Went last night with a group of 9 people, restaurants has perfect location & atmosphere. Service is slow yet there was not too many people at the time, food is very good, price is fair. They should take care of their service, verity and ventilation (and bit smelly) .

I went with my family to that restaurant in Salmiya- Kuwait, and saw the crowd waiting to choose the fish with angry faces, and only one couple waiting outside, when we approach inside the restaurant we wait 5 minutes until one of the head waiters came and asked my mobile, when I asked the time that we will wait ,...
