The steamcrabs and steamfish are good also the various sambal provided on the corner. But the price is very expensive for those. My favourite beverage is orange coconut. And the place is convenient and clean enough for seafood restaurant 🍴.

Layar is a probably the most popular seafood restaurant in Surabaya, and many people swear that it is also the best one. Unfortunately, not for me. I grew up in cities where the fish are really fresh and they know how to cook fish very well. Layar's quality is far from the standard of Makassar best seafood (where it claimed... More

Sea food is awesome with the right blend of spices. Tender coconut with orange juice is excellent. Altogether a memorable experience.

Layar serve really nice fresh seafood in affordable price. Our favourites are calamaries, clams, crabs and their tiger prawn. We always come back for more every month.

Simply one of the best seafood in Surabaya. Fresh seafood with choices of local sauce / taste. Might be quite noisy for business occation but none of us mind when it comes to good seafood. We were too busy enjoying the favorite food : salty egg sauce crab, grilled or steamed fish, soft crab, freshly cooked vegetables and many more

While the restaurant looks very modest, it is excellent. All the dishes we enjoyed were incredibly tasty - and the chilli crab sensational. The restaurant was Very busy so I would suggest you arrive early to not be disappointed.

The menu is English friendly but the servers are not. And if your request is hard to understand, they will avoid serving your table so good luck. We ordered a grilled lobster, steamed crabs, steamed fish, fresh oysters, noodles, nasi goreng (fried rice), and veggies. They were all delicious and extremely fresh but the noodles and nasi goreng weren't all... More
