I found this very ho hum. It's just a few tanks with a young well meaning guy chucking bait into a tank and the fish, stingrays etc swimming up to the eat. Couldn't see the interest really.

Firstly, the restaurant can't call a fish fresh if its frozen in the freezer. Secondly, they must not charge a penny if the fish is prepared horridly. It was over-fried into burnt fish chips. We just came back from this beyond-belief restaurant. We were told that they had to fry the 'fresh' red snapper longer because it was frozen and they worry that they had not thawed it sufficiently and wanted to ensure its cooked! So they deep-fry it into a a piece of dry driftwood! That was a RM80 fish after a RM20 discount. I am spreading the words hoping that more tourists to Langkawi are aware of this poorly managed and customer-unfriendly restaurant. It isn't worth the try and way too expensive. If you want to spend money on seafood, try elsewhere. I am sure you will be much happier with your food and the price you pay. The servers can't do anything for us as 'their manager wasn't around' to manage take the necessary action. There was a European couple whom we met while waiting for a taxi after dinner at the same place. They too were very unhappy with the dishes they had which were 'highly recommended' by their server. The fish and tiger prawn weren't fresh and over deep-fried.

Lighting a bit bright - could do with some candle light for romantic people! Music needs changing and keeping softer as same two nights running. Highly recommend. Sent minibus to collect us.

My family decided to have dinner here mainly because of the sea-side location and nice views. We were very happy with that - the location exceeded my expectations. They have a nice garden area with wooden swings and other interesting items for phototaking.

The food was quite nice, but I must say its rather expensive. I regret ordering the lobster which cost more than a hundred S'pore dollars. Other items were more reasonably priced.

Service was pretty good - the person serving us was very friendly and helpful, and most obliging when we wanted to take photos of the (very expensive) lobster when it was still alive. I had a most memorable shot holding it up by its "whiskers"!
