This seafood resto is packed for good reasons. Its specialty, Kepiting Telur Asin (salted egg crab), is unique and cooked just perfectly to give off great sauce without overwhelming the sweet flavor of the fresh crabs. Truly one of a kind thing. They have a new crab sauce with black pepper and bits of bacon which i thought would be... More

For you who wants to try seafood in Indonesia, one of the best choice is Layar. I take my boss who comes from Japan, and they love it. And all of my family also loved it. Layar has many branches, but I only try in Bukit Mas, also in Manyar. If you are looking for Javanese atmosphere, better go to... More

Have known this place for quite some times. Food quality is very good. Service and atmosphere here are nothing special, you just come here to eat. Price wise is rather expensive though. Other than their seafood menu, my favorite dishes is actually Kolokee (Chicken in Sweet and Sour Sauce)

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
