A great place for an nice relaxed seafood dinner. Situated right on the beach, great to enjoy the sunset. Lots of local fresh fish, prawns, scallops etc, but get there early, as it goes fast. The resteraunt opens at 1800 and last orders are 2115. Loverly food, and a great place to enjoy.

If you want to go for cheap and good seafood, this is not the place. I felt the food is ok but the food is on the expansive side. Ambience is great because it's located at the seaside. Ample parking place. Not convenient for tourist unless you take a taxi which is not hard to find in Labuan.

Daytime is hot in Labuan, but in the evening it gets cooler, so we felt good when we sit at seaside table. Beer can be served; very important point for us foreigners. Seafood is good, not so delicate like Japanese seafood, but fresh and good for beer. We spent good time here.

Food was generally fresh sea food ranging from fish, prawn, crab... etc... these can be cook as desired. Taste. ... is fair. Not to forget to... More

Me and my friend are having dinner here in january. Its really good to stay for lunch or dinner here. Nice view, nice food, but we have to wait for about 30-40 minutes for the food. I recommend those who seafood lover to come here. Just the service not satisfied at all. But overall is good.

This restaurant serves great seafood. My group was really enjoying the food served by this restaurant. Would be great if we could get a picture of the scenery during sunset.

It's a nice place to dine with family & friends. Good atmosphere since it's just by the seaside. Either day or night, it's recommended. Foods are great too. Worth your money. Good services, but on a busy hour you may need a little bit of patience. I don't really ever encounter with any bad services here. Been there all the... More

It was an unplanned visit and all we wanted was dinner. We had to wait for an available table and we found out that it would have been better if we had called ahead to book a table and order our food. I think it took almost an hour. Well, the place was full to bursting. And the food was... More
