Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I visited this resto with one friend and we ordered drinks and two meals. The drinks came promptly. Five minutes later my meal arrived and the waitress disappeared. I expected her to return with my friend’s meal. Nothing happened. My meal was getting cold so...we shared it. Ten minutes, 15 minutes. I went to find the waitress. She said she would go and check. Another 10 minutes nothing. I went to find the manager. Terribly sorry go sit down and wait 10 minutes. I said no - I’m waiting at your desk. She gets another manager then a third manager. After 5 more minutes they say it’s ready and they won’t charge. Generous. We took that meal as takeaway and will never return.More

Ocean's restaurant opens at 10.00 am, is a seafood restaurant with a location on the seafront. The location is safe because it will not be hit by a tsunami in East Kalimantan. The view from the ocean restaurant will be very beautiful in the afternoon...because there are cozy vibes, the beach, and the sunset. This beach is known as the menara beach. Their kite option is eaten in, take away but they don't provide delivery service. The food there is very good, the seafood served is also varied, ranging from fish, crabs, to shrimp. Prices offered for various seafood menus start from 75,000 to hundreds of thousands. I have a recommendation for a delicious food menu there, namely crab, lobster, and fish kerapu, I hope I hadn't eaten so much because it's addictive. In addition to providing a place or outdoor space they also have a closed room or room, inside there is live music too. However, unfortunately, the location for parking vehicles is quite difficult or not wide enough because it joins the surrounding shops. Although the parking area isn't spacious, there are still many customers who keep eating there and visiting. I went there after I had leisured time.More

This is my 3rd times visit here, but the first time for a dinner. Very very lucky the sea breeze wasn’t really strong last night. So I could really enjoy the Blackpepper Crab & Padang Sauce, Soup Woku Woku, Kangkung and many more which I...cannot remember as finish ‘em. Haha This resto is one of the best Seafood Resto intown. By the way, this city is right now very busy with the preparation of new upcoming Capital City of Indonesia. Here in this province.More

Been here twice with some colleagues. The place is nice. If you seat outdoor, you can feel the wind blows your hair and waive so close. Food were perfect! Should you bring more than 10 pax, pre-booking menu is recommended.

This restaurant is at the sea side with waves caressing its walls. Had a business dinner with a team of 15 persons, great ambience and seating arrangement. Food takes a little time to be served but its well done, cooked, served well. Food is tastier...too except a few Indian dishes that couldn't be upto expectations. A nice place for an evening or a get-together.More

What to say? Fresh seafood, cooked Indonesian style, sat on the sea front, waves crashing, wind warm. This is some of the best food I’ve eaten anywhere in the world, as good as I remembered and it’s been 7 years since I was last here....Simply the best, if your in Balikpapan an absolute must, not to be missed evening. Book ahead, it’s always busy.More
