We had a good selection of seafood (fish, prawns,lobster, clams, squids) for dinner and enjoyed the great ambience of the restaurant. The seafood were "swimming" fresh. However, the prices were exorbitant, more than double of other seafood restaurants in the Tanjung Uban area.

Lovely view, seafood was fresh and nice on the palate. Crab was overrated. Service was prompt. The tables could have done with a little more dressing up.

I just walked in when I visited there for dinner. I don't think you need to make a booking unless you go there during a peak tourist season.
