This is my second review of this restaurant. The first was based on cumulative experiences since about 2002. This one is based on my visit there today. Unfortunately standards have deteriorated to the extent I have to brand it a terrible place to eat.I checked the gills of every dead fish on display, they were all gray or brown. No... More

Went to the seafood market near Mall of Asia. Great place, we were there around 2:00 in the afternoon so not crowded. We pointed to a place by 2 people that ran to our cab soon as we got out. Place was great but next time will take a minute to walk around and see other seafood places. This is... More

We ate at this venue for lunch during the week. Seems we picked a day that 2/3 of Manila were celebrating something or other, with regular announcements and 'cheers' throughout the restaurant. Despite our enquiries, nobody could tell us exactly what the celebration was. We were given a card table in the hallway, near the toilets, so the throng of... More

I recently spent a week in Manila on business and was lucky enough to visit this restaurant twice! I always love to eat here on my trips to Manila. The selection of seafood is great and I don't think they can make anything 'bad'...it is always fantastic!!You select the seafood and can make suggestions on how you want it cooked... More

Possibly one of the best meals I have ever had. We choose this restaurant because my Rough Guide travel book recommended it and said a meal for 2 with beers was about 800 PHP. Apparently my friends and I have extravagant taste. We had 1 lapu lapu, 1 red snapper, 1 jumbo crab (really jumbo), 4 jumbo tiger prawns, blue... More
