My wife and I decided to eat here as it's right next to our hotel. The tanks of live fish lining the walkway into the restaurant were very encouraging. However, this is where the excitement ended. We were escorted to our table by the beach and asked immediately what we would like to order. We ordered 2 drinks initially, then... More

Went in to look at the menu and everything was very overpriced. Talked to a couple who ate there and said it was not good. Walked back out. It looks like a nice place, but you can do much better for you money. Don't waste your time.

This place is nice due to the environment and the huge space that they have but that can't be a reason for them to charge us ridiculously. We were 4 of us and we ordered 1kg weighted Ikan Siakap 3 rasa, 4 season vegetables, kepah kam heong, egg bean curd, Tom yam seafood and fish porridge which we end up... More

Wow, is this place way over priced. Food is per 100 grams. And the seating is basically garden furniture. Live show is ok but also very very low quality. Have a meal there and never go back once you realise how much you have been ripped off.

It's very expensive and way over priced. In langkawi we got 3 lobsters for the price of half a lobster in penang.

We had just ate two dishes of noodles with fried fish. Very Good. The best thing is the location...in front of the sea at sunset. Wonderfull

TERRIBLE SERVICE AND LOUSY FOOD. Tom Yum made from store-bought packets. The portions were small and overpriced. We were given unclean cutlery with dirt on it. Avoid!! Better restaurants out there.

Great sea view might have you fooled- as it did us. Totally not worth it. All seafood is cooked with sauces, so who knows what is fresh. Terrible - nonexistent - service once the meal arrived. Other restaurants around have great food at about 1/4 of the price.

This restaurant is the worst restaurant I have visited in my life. From outside it looks attractive and good. They also attract you with the fish aquarium at the entrance where you can select the fresh fish and they will cook it for you. But the restaurant was not clean at all. I was having my dinner and saw at... More
