The fish was not so spicy, and not so cheap. But they offer a various kind of fish, and fresh! Nice to try when visit Makassar

I was expecting something special about this place. But the food here is just decent. You can find seafood like this in any other place.

It looks like a big canteen. People eats with their hands. And the floor gets trashy with what they throw on the floor. I, a vegeterian, had 2 good vegetables dishes out of a larger choice. For the fish, it looked overgrilled but customers seem to like it. My friend had grilled chicken that smelled fish, of course they use... More

We ate here often while in Makassar. You get to choose your own seafood which they then BBQ. It's fun sitting at the long tables and meeting the locals who turn up in great numbers to eat here. The food is superb and the staff helpful with suggestions (even though most don't speak English).

I'm not a big fan of seafood... So, when they offer me for fish, I deny it, so I choose a roasted prawn (udang bakar) with rice... The prawn taste fresh and they serve it with 3 different kind of sauce... I love the peanut sauce, and tomato sauce... It gives a deep flavored, but I found the chili sauce... More

The restaurant location is near the losari beach, just in front of our hotel, Fave Hotel Daeng Tompo. The seafood is very delicious, simple BBQ with 3 kind of sambals (chilli sauce). According to a friend, Lae Lae is still consider cheap in Makassar, and definitely must try if you come to Makassar!

Although Lea Lea doesn't look like much from the outside - and is hardly palatial on the inside, the food it serves is fresh and delicious. Choose your own fish from the ice buckets and then watch them get de-scaled, cleaned and grilled outside on the 'BBQ'. The Oleh-Oleh (fish roe with peppers grilled in Pandam leaf) is also excellent.... More

Fish was fresh, but condiments needs to be improved. Also cashier has no line so practically no queue which can be a bummer. Probably would return

I am a business traveler to Makassar since 1990. I had been to this restaurant for few years but the cleanliness never changed. All fish are fresh but taste average. Because of that, I have never gone back to this Lae Lae restaurant except I am invited by our local friends. The atmosphere is not a place where you want... More
