“Fresh seafood with a view”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Very extensive menu, but the waitress was very helpful in guiding us through the specialities. We loved the garoupa kuah assam, the prawns woku belanga, and the sayur pakis (a fern vegetable stir fry)

Love their seafood and the ocean breeze air. It is well located where you could marvel the city coastline from the restaurant look up point.

“Number 1 seafood restaurant in Manado”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

You have to try this restaurant before the other, especially if you dont have much time in Manado. Try their woku n kuah asam (i suggest to combine them with Goropa fish). It is the best in Manado. Located at the Kalasey area, which have a great view towards the sea. But, if you want to dine here in the weekend and come in group, please make the reservation & order first. Last call will be at 09.00 pm (weekdays) and 10.00 pm (weekend).

“make sure you had checked for the price before you ordered your seafood!”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

standing right next to the sea, it is a seafood restaurant serving in local style. pick your own fish/prawns/meat to be sure of its freshness before they cook it. check the seafood price before you order because sometimes it is not stated in the menu book-and they count it /kg depending on the season

“Excellent food, affordable price, nice view”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I've been a City Extra's customer for a long period of time when I was living in Manado.
It was my favorite choice for seafood alla around the town, you can choose directly from the fridge you preferred one and they will cook directly. Portions are abundant and personnel kind, some of them can also speak english.
Recently part of the kitchen has burnt but they are still operating with efficience.
PRO: food, nice view on the Manado Bay, service, cold beers
CONS: toilet should be cleaner, the big pool in the middle contains also protected species of fish. This should be avoided.
