“Magnificent cumi hitam woku”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We dine-in at this restaurant as my sister-in-law who lived there told us that this is the best to get the squid cooked with its black ink and woku spice. Well, it is magnificent ! The garoupa woku was also nice and spicy. Then we tried the stir and fried paku (fern), very good.

“Amazing & Fresh Seafood!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Do not miss Udang Ronggeng Goreng. And the Klapertaart.

Outstanding for their freshness, spices & quality of food !

Service was alright, there are lot of servers to go around checking on your table and attending to your needs.

Do not go here hungry, took sometime for food to be processed.

I advise you to make reservations as resto is always full !

“Awesome food”

The food was amazing. Liked all tye dishes we had....only seafood. The slow-ish service was the only thing going against the place

“The ambience is described better only in pictures”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We came from Jakarta, wanted to try - what people say - the best no 3 restaurant in Manado. It turns out, the ambience is not as good as it is described. They closed the table right beside the water so we had dinner inside the modern building without good access to the beautiful view. We made reservation through phone call. When we arrived, the manager was rude. Ignoring we brought two old women who hardly walk far, he did not care to find tables that made them easy to walk. Honestly, I'm disappointed with the service. In hospitality business, service should be no 1.

“Food is OK. Ambience is Great”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Need to improve the lead time though. From ordering until the menu arrives, in peak hours. it can take up to one hour.
