Food was ok, nothing to rave about. We had lunch, included in our package, 7 dishes served. I like the fried calamari ..only that is yummy..

“The Famous Golden Prawn?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Fish is fresh and we can choose it directly from the "tank", so it's kinda like guaranteed fresh. Squid is alright, not on display, so you just order the size and how you want it to be cooked. Clam though we can choose it, but you can hardly tell thich is alive, thus we wasted like 30% of the clam as we can't even open them. Veggies are alright, no strong feelings about it. Avacardo chocolate drink is good though, one of the signature drink that you must try in Batam.

“The food is good...The experience is unbelievable..The atmosphere to write home about.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The food is good...The experience is unbelievable..The atmosphere is to write home about. You enter a restaurant that is over the water. You pick you seafood delights from tanks (tanks build into the sea) below you. One contains only prawns, another crabs, another fish and even one with sharks big enough to eat you. You pick your selection and they bring it up in nets alive and ten minutes later you are eating it. Fresh, fresh, fresh! Food is good! Pricy but who cares.

“Very Poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The food seemed quite unhygienic, the way dishes were being served and the entrance and exit was smelling foul
