The seafood spread is rather fresh, and the variety of fresh and chilled fish was plenty. We chose the leatherback fish and got one grilled and the other sautéed. The small clams in garlic were delectable along with generous amounts of fresh chilli sambal sauce. The otah was different and almost like non-spicy fish cake.
