Live seafood restaurant with great service and a grand Victorian-like ambiance. No menu to choose from as diners are escorted around the perimeter of the the dining area to view all the food and how you would like them cooked. It includes a great variety...of live and frozen seafood and everything else from vegetables to duck & chicken meat. The food was really delicious especially the live fish and oysters that we had. We had a 2nd round of oysters as they were huge, succulent and so tasty! The bamboo clams and asparagus was great too. Real value for money too as the 7 of us only paid about US$150 for our dinner which included 2 bottles of great tasting Qingdao beer. Would definitely recommend that you visit this restaurant when in Dalian.More

Ate here on our last night in Dalian. Traditional Chinese restaurant. It is a cool concept to pick out your fish and have it cooked on the spot. Staff seemed to really rush us. Maybe because we were foreigners. We spoke mostly Chinese with the...staff so no idea how their English is. Food was okay, I think we went more for the experience. I don't have much knowledge on Chinese seafood so the selection process was a little difficult, but we managed. If you want a unique dining experience this is the place to go!More

Visit Wangbao for dinner. Very big restaurant I can take seat without reservation. You can choose live seafood from fish tank. This kind of restaurant is popular in China. If you are not used to this system or Chinese language you should tell them budget...to staff. Because some of seafoods are super expensive. And it's difficult to communicate. Food is very fresh and not so expensive. We three around 800 rmb. And also very good services.More

We are planning a large group family event here next week and decided to treat ourselves to dinner while verifying that our American credit card would work (it did). The service was first class from the time we walked in. There was a large live...seafood section to select from, but we opted for more standard fare. I selected cubes of beef with scallops which was very close to the "fried piece of meat" my American pallet has been dying for the last several days. Price for 3 of us was 233Yuan which = about $40US. More than a value! I highly recommend this great spot.More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with plenty of seafood, delicious and great experience. Made the evening really lovely, however, it is a real pity to allow everyone to smoke at the tables when guests are trying to enjoy the good food. Maybe the restaurant could have...a smoking room or ban it all together inside the building.More

Definitely the best seafood restaurant in dalian, you can find so many different kinds of seafood ranging from salmon to urchins! Crabs and lobsters are common places but urchins and ooni? That's special! Of course it costs A LOT!! My feast solo was around 1000...yuan!!! But hey, still worth it to eat all of these delicious seafood)More

Choose from fresh seafood and how you want it cooked then it's served up on the table. A little on the expensive side. I think they overcooked the seafood a little but the chives bun and veggies were yum. Unfortunately, seafood was so so... $1214...RMB for 5 dishes.More

The restaurant has a excellent option of fish and seafood. All very fresh, kept at sight, like a market, on ice or aquarium for us to choose the dinner. The Service is oK. Friendly staff, and food comes quickly to table. . Nevertheless, English will...be a problem. Almost no one speaks English, or if they speak level is low. So if you are not Chinese, prepare yourself to be patient. When I went there, always went with Chinese colleagues on the Group, so was easy. The atmosphere could be better. Private rooms are good, and recommend, on 2nd floor, but open space on 1st floor missing a better decoration, and some music. Food is very good and already came to this restaurant a couple of times. If you come to this restaurant is to eat seafood and fish. I need to refer, unfortunately what happened last time, and that cannot happen in a restaurant that is one of the most famous in Dalian. A group of six went to the restaurant to have a lunch and 3 have eaten Oysters and 3 not eaten. The 3 that have eaten, stayed on the next day at the hotel, no work, with food intoxication. One of them was me and was horrible, no sleep. Please, need to be careful with Oysters, is dangerous. Nevertheless, when chance comes, will go there again. Food quality is good.More

Most interesting is the building. My guess is, likely an older Russian building, from before the city became Dairen and was still Dalny. Fish is obviously fresh, simply prepared, letting natural flavors speak for themselves. It is possible that for Dalian, the perception might be...that the place is expensive. But if you stay away from the very highest priced items, prices are by no means unreasonable. Service is efficient, no issue there either. Unfortunately, the major turnoff is that the non-smoking policy is not being enforced. There are non-smoking signs on every column, very visible. People smoking underneath nearly all of them, but staff doing nothing.More
