This is the most recommended seafood place in Surabaya. They have different kind of fish, crabs, shrimps, mussels... all live on display, from where you can choose which one(s) do you want and how do you want them to be prepared. This place is not only for fresh seafood, but its a different experience. The price is also very reasonable.... More

This place is my Japanese customer's favorite for two reasons : seafood & beer, maybe it's the closest thing to izakaya they can find in Surabaya. They always ask to return here. Price wise, this restaurant is expensive, to have a dinner with group of people & full range menu (from fish to squid, from crab to shrimp) will suck... More

Once you enter their restaurant, you will see a lot of seafood tanks displaying various fresh seafood choices. They have a plastic sheet on their table top and I think that is a good idea to keep the table top clean all the time. Most of their menu were fantastic, but one thing that I am not happy is,, their... More

It has everything going for it, the massive footfall, the cling film covered tables, the industrially efficient ordering counter / kitchen interface. Sadly (for me) none of the staff spoke a word of english so I had the soft shell crab twice. I'm not complaining, it was great but it would have been nice to try something else, like any... More

Established in Surabaya since 1999, not only serve Seafood but also Chinese food. Mid range of price, neat, and comfortable restaurant. I visited the one in Kertajaya and I recommend you to book seating first because it can be really crowded. Order Crab with Salty Egg (Kepiting telor asin), Ikan Kakap Bakar, and Kangkung hotplate. Those are the winners recommended... More

I will definitely back... More

Easily the best seafood in town. You will not regret eating here. The only concern is the service of the staff and the long line of patrons lining up to eat at this awesome restaurant. Order the soft shell crab with century egg sauce.
