Cheap seafood, Serve no Pork, Food taste great, staff and owner are friendly. Hard time to get the parking as located on top of the sea. Amazing for family gathering too. The seafood are taken from tank and weigh and pay for the cooking.

The seafood absolutely fresh! You choose what do you want to eat in their big pools full of alive fish and they cook it straight away! A bit overcharged for turists.. be careful
