Paradise for seafood lovers

Great place for seafood lovers. Try the fish, shrimp and crabs. They will never let you down. Clean place and fast service. But a bit pricy.

Our favorite main course are fried fish (any kind of fish) and soft shell crab because they always cook right; crispy outside, soft inside. Layar Seafood restaurant also serve all you can eat/pick any kind of chili sauce. Our favorit drink, as always: fresh young coconut..... More

We came here for a big family dinner to celebrate my aunt's birthday. Food and service lacking as the restaurant was very busy even though they had so many staff. They sang her a happy birthday song as the cake was brought out to our table. Overall, it was a bit pricey but will give it another chance

Food is great. The crab is nice. Get the "Kepiting Soka Telur Asin". All the other dishes depend on your appetite. The "kecap" sauce is nice. The lobster with cheese is delicious too.
