It is not luxury restaurant at all. But you will find vey fresh food here . Actually first you have take a trolley and buy your fresh sea foods as well as vegetables. Then order how you would like cooked ... Price is reasonable.

This used to be good. But there are other places. The competition is better and the food is fresher and cheaper. This place just feels old and tired.

This market/restaurant has fresh seafood and veggies out on ice and you walk thru and pick what you want then tell them how you want it prepared. A little pricey but we found the seafood fresh and prepared the way we asked. I see some of the reviews have found that the fish were not fresh. I understand that could... More

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
