The entrance greets us with life sea creatures (variety of fish, prawns, shrimp, lobster, and you name it) in lines of aquarium. Then you task is to select what would you want for dinner and what cooking do you need. The restaurant can always recommend and that's the easier choice. The price is a bit on the high side depending very much on the weight. Our servings of garoupa, 4 large prawns, large cuttlefish and some vege and drinks cost us around RM200++. The taste is quite good.

You can choose to sit nearer to the beach or closer to the stage where there are performance of traditional dances. It's a good attraction for tourist. Even my 3 yrs old son enjoy the performances.

Will surely visit this place again.

This is a big restaurant next to Holiday Inn hotel. We had early dinner, so enough tables to choose from. We had a nice table at the beach side with perfect view over the sea. The restaurant has a large choice of fresh seafood. We ordered several dishes which were all nicely cooked and fresh. Overall a bit pricy, but in combinatoin with the view it was worth it !

Very expensive by Penang standards but a lovely setting on the beach for lunch. All seafood is "live" so freshness is assured and they import much of of it from overseas.
Not worth the price in my opinion. Service was average but friendly.

We had a very very over priced dinner, the service was very unhelpful. Ended up at the food court for a second dinner!

We actually just stumbled upon the restaurant while walking along the beach.The restaurant is very big and has a lot off seating with great views of the beach. The location is by far the biggest plus.
Food was actually fairly reasonable, it was not out of this world but certainly nothing to complain about.
The issue for me was really the price, it was significantly overpriced in my opinion and you can definitely find equally good food at much more reasonable prices in the same area. I would not go back here and just for the pricing I can't recommend it.
