We had dinner in Lae Lae and the food was great.

When we entered the restaurant we realised that it was very popular with the locals in Makassar. No tourist menu so it would be handy if you know some elemental bahasa words.
The waiter was serious but helpful.

We ordered Kang Kung (fried green vegetables similar to Morning Glory in Thailand), grilled fish and prawns which came with boiled rice. Everything was delicious.
Price was very good but it is hard to calculate beforehand because it depends on the type and size of fish ordered and it is a little bit difficult to comunicate if you don´t speak bahasa.

We would probably eat there again if back in Makassar.

Very tasty fish in this rather run down local establishment. Dont be put off be the decor. You choose the fish you want and not much English spoken so you need to just point, they were quite helpful. Anyway, very tasty and seemed very good value.

This big fishrestaurant, or rather fish-hall was a great experience.
99% locals in the restaurant, big choice of fish, cheap prices.
You need some help from other guests to find out how it works here but ít's definitely a good and special place to eat.

Definitely visit here if you want authentic local food that is fresh. The staff aren't all that friendly, but the food is!
