“Fresh fish on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Similar to other restaurants on Mirrissa Beach, they display the seafood on the beach and you pick the fish that you'd like cooked for you. We chose it as it had the most people in it, and we understand why. Tables are on the sand each with a candle making it a lovely place for a meal. Staff are friendly and quick, food was delicious, and watching the sun setting over the palm trees with a Lion (beer) in hand is pretty fantastic.

Good kitchen. Well done crabs, cold drinks and very fast! Service was very slow and confused, but the rest was great!

“Catch of the day????”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

We ordered the catch of the day: a grilled tuna steak ... Supposedly!
It's hard to mess it up, but it was possible to get a not so fresh one (let's put it like that..), not grilled, full of sauce and with clamari together on the sauce, possibly of another dish..what a disappointment. Furthermore ...Careless waiters!

“Fish is good, jumbo prawns a bit bland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice, the red snapped fried with ginger sauce was very nice. The jumbo prawns grilled were pretty plain though. Stick to the fish

We chose our black mullet from a stall on the beach outside Mirissa Eye, which was then expertly cooked for us with a super, fruity curry sauce, crispy salad and chips. Excellent spot and great atmosphere.
