No they do not have a menu, just the freshest food you can hope to find in the Manila area. The atmosphere is somewhat formal, so you may want to dress accordingly. I showed up for lunch yesterday wearing a pair of cargo shorts and polo shirt and upon walking in, I was wishing for slacks and a tie, although,... More

Stopped in early because we didn't know they are closed between lunch and dinner. We waited and watched people display seafood and put ice on everything. We, 2 of us, were trying to decide what to have for dinner. They have no menu so to speak. You just pick out, purchase, what you want at their market and their restaurant... More

I was here a few days ago to have dinner with a friend. This place is the best when it comes to seafood. We had lobster, crabs and prawns caught live and cooked fresh to our liking. The taste of freshness comes through in every dish. It also has an elegant interior that is currently being renovated. Imagine dining next... More

This is the best seafood restaurant in town. They have the freshest ingredients and you can ask their chefs to cook it the way you like it. I love their chopsuey with scallops, the shrimp (it is cooked perfectly), and their crabs. Definitely a must try!

Newly renovated and still serving fresh seafood cooked to your specification. Lobsters, clams, assorted fresh fish available for your selection with in-season vegetables to accompany your order. A great eating experience. Enjoy!

An upmarket restaurant where you choose your fish, seafood and vegetables from the fresh display laid out before you as you enter. We were asked how we would like each dish cooked and these duly arrived with little delay and tasted wonderful. Certainly a fun and delicious experience which my girlfriend and I enjoyed.

the beauty of this place is you get to pick and choose the sea food you want and then it is weighted and cooked accordingly to your choice. the food is really fresh but the cooking might not be to your liking. Better if you tell the waiter exactly how you want the food to be cooked. Prices are a... More

You get to "shop" for what you want with a shopping trolley - that was fun where everything looks fresh. You then weigh them to know a gauge of how much you have to pay - and they will cook it. I don't know if the crabs were just simply not fresh, or poorly done but they turned out mushy.... More
