This restaurant has been around for years! they offer seafood menu. The food is not special at all. In addition, it is expensive place that I don't see it justifiable. Many adjacent restaurants are much better. Location is a pluse

Dining doesn't get much more "blissful" than at Al Sanbok seafood the place you always dreamed of earns its No. 1 ranking for Food because "every single thing is "unbelievable" and absolutely clean and fresh, the food served in a five-star style, the "well-trained" staff works like bee lead by Antonio and Orlando.

As a member of our committee , I choose this restaurant based on its ratings. We were given the new a la carte menu to choose from. The recommendation was superb, as it was the taste of the food, matched with great service. I recommend any one looking for a great gourmet experience , to look no further. Well recommended.

The service is horrible and restaurant was not very clean. When the dining area is not clean starts to make toy wonder what the kitchen looks like. They have a line where you pick out fresh seafood there are no prices on it, and there is a reason- double the menu prices at least. Skip this place is best advice.

Its my second visit in this adorable restaurant yet again as a guest. It seems that company's prefer to take their overseas visitors to this specialist seafood restaurant .. and I am not surprised, the food was even better than my last visit, and of course the sea views are amazing . Really a nice place to be.
