Fresh Seafood Restaurant

For me, this is the best seafood restaurant in Surabaya. Every time I visit Surabaya and want to have seafood, this is my choice. The restaurant is crowded especially during meal times. The service is average, event tends a little but slow, but the staffs are friendly. For those of you who don't... read more

The food was very good. The fish was fresh and tasty. One of the attendants was very pleasant and took the time to explain things in English for us. While in general I didn't find the service or ambience very good, but the food compensated for the lack of it. I went a bit later so it wasn't very crowded... More

...is such a rare thing. Because all the sauces tend to powerful, heavy and overpowering. This place combines fresh seafood with all the beautiful delicate flavours of the sea creatures and the wonderful local sauces perfectly! Compliments to the chef for this wonderful balance. Try the ikan bakar, sauce padang crab, calamari with all the various sambal dips (there is... More

I really love their crab in salted egg dish. The sauce's yummy. But for better serving, I suggest they crack the crab's shell because it's a bit difficult to open it with crab cracker because of the slippery sauce. But I will definitely go back to this place again.

This is the best seafood restaurant in Surabaya. You should try "Kepiting Telur Asin" which mean crab with salted egg sauce. The taste was incredible. As a foodie person that born and raised in Surabaya for 32 years, you can't get any better than this. Just order anything, I promise you their food will blow your mind :)

Dinner with friends was an experience here. Reservations must be made as it is always full house. They have good arrays of seafood to select and service does not take too long despite of the crowd. Friendly staff and always helpful.
