the place is very simple but it's all about the food. Fresh and cheap fish you select when you enter the place, ask the style you want it cooked then it will come with a selection of sambal (cobe-cobe) rice and veggies if ordered. Great and generous portions, good, fast service. The meal was excellent all together.

In this restaurant you have to try the fish eggs on the menu. So also with grilled fish and 3 kinds of chili sauce that accompanies the pleasure of devouring grilled fish.

It's a good choice for Makassar. Simple and local it seems to be always busy so at least the food is fresh. No English menu so need to point at the fish you want. Don't expect fancy.

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