Variety of sea food very good. Taste very delicious. Ambiance just modest. Very appropriate to taste Makassar sea food at affordable price.

The food is Ok, however the presentation is nothing special. The price is cheap compare than other. Lay out not comfortable for family, there is no Air conditioner and little bit dirty.

First visual impression was not good, but as it seems some locals when we asked where to get good seafood, lae lae always comes up. So we decided to give it a try. Yes the location is close to Losari Beach. But the place is not well maintained and not so clean. We went straight to choosing our fish, prawn,... More

I had visited this restaurant several time before my last visit in February 2016. To my disappointment, this seafood restaurant is not as good as it is used to be. The fish is not fresh. The prawn seem to be fried more than once. Please go to other seafood restaurants when in Makassar, not this one.

Very basic ambiance. Communal tables with not so good ventilation. A lot of locals dine here. We spent Rp 290,000 for two grilled fish, Kangkong vegetables, squid and grilled prawns and mineral water. I prefer New Dinar for seafood anytime but the food here is not too bad. Give it a shot.
