I don't know who'd be the target clientele of this restaurant. The seats are a bit gaudy and the place's ambience is supposed to be "high end." And yet they have fresh seafood like a "dampa." Okay, may be let's call this a "high-end dampa." We ordered the clam soup which was an excellent opener and coupled with clams with... More

You had a lot of choices about their kinds of food especially seafood my favorite. Although that's expensive but we satisfied the taste it was good for me. And also the place is nice and well arranged.

Good food but very expensive Once they notice that your are tourist ,they overcharge you. They charged me $500.00 for 3 persons meals I can provide receive copy upon request. I recommend to do not visit this place.

there is a nice display of fresh variety of see food and fishes. unfortunately the grill fishes we ask were overcooked and no any basic manner to grill a simple fish. Really disappointed. the cost is high but I would have paid if the food was nice prepared. Olive oil of the cheapest category, not even a decent vinegar for... More

No they do not have a menu, just the freshest food you can hope to find in the Manila area. The atmosphere is somewhat formal, so you may want to dress accordingly. I showed up for lunch yesterday wearing a pair of cargo shorts and polo shirt and upon walking in, I was wishing for slacks and a tie, although,... More

the mixture of market and restaurant is interesting. you are taken around the market area by a waitress with a trolley - they suggest which foods to pick and how they might be cooked then whisk them off and bring them back to you beautifully prepared and presented. the look of the place is quite high end, the atmosphere is...

Stopped in early because we didn't know they are closed between lunch and dinner. We waited and watched people display seafood and put ice on everything. We, 2 of us, were trying to decide what to have for dinner. They have no menu so to speak. You just pick out, purchase, what you want at their market and their restaurant... More

I was here a few days ago to have dinner with a friend. This place is the best when it comes to seafood. We had lobster, crabs and prawns caught live and cooked fresh to our liking. The taste of freshness comes through in every dish. It also has an elegant interior that is currently being renovated. Imagine dining next... More

This is the best seafood restaurant in town. They have the freshest ingredients and you can ask their chefs to cook it the way you like it. I love their chopsuey with scallops, the shrimp (it is cooked perfectly), and their crabs. Definitely a must try!
