“Fabulous Setting with the Freshest Seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We got there early so we could have a cocktail at the bar. We were entertained by the many fish swimming around underneath the floor. The service was sensational and the food exceptional! Favorite dish was the Stewed Bean Curd and Seafood with the Black Snapper Deep Fried with Chilli Sauce a very close second. You can not go to Bintan without visiting this restaurant. You know your getting the freshest seafood in town when you can see the fish swimming in the sea pens as you arrive. A must dine!

“Good simple seafood!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

The place is ok but the location is wonderful!
Food is quite good though not up to par with Singapore's Jumbo seafood.
I recommend going there before sunset, enjoy a drink at the Calypso, and then have a black pepper crab on a near sea table (please book).
Take your camera along for the sunset!

Thank JMADeromedi
