Great Sefood Restaurant

The place to enjoy the seafood. They have wide selection of seafood and mostly very delicious. The downside is this is a pretty expensive restaurant but the price itself is worth it.

A clean restaurant by the beach. Decent food, friendly staff. A bit expensive by local standard. Suitable for family outings

Had some great fresh fish, too much garlic though. Check your bill twice, cause mine needed correction. Nice view and good service at terrace

This place is opposite the beach, from the 2nd floor we still can see the nice view of the sea. The seafood is good, the restaurant atmosphere is conservative chinese restaurant. Good for a big family gathering.

The fish dishes are ok, buttered fried shrimp is better. The sauce for the crab with Padang sauce is too sweet, but the crab soup is tasteless.

Food here is well executed Chinese seafood, although nothing special. The place is enormous and the service suffers because of it.

I have friends who fly their office staff to Padang for one night in a hotel just so they can eat at the Nelayan. The top end seafood dishes are to die for. Ask the price first as some seafood is very seasonal (like mud crabs) and the price can change a bit. For sure an experience not to be... More

This place is expensive for Padang but we had some great whole fish with chilis. It's right on Padang beach so you can catch the sunset, and they serve beer.
