There are many seafood restaurant in Makassar. So I decide to have lunch at Nelayan. Location was not far from Losari beach. So they have many options of fish. I choose grill Kaneke fish & fried kudu2. They nicely grill & I like it.

This restaurant is located along a quiet side street from the main road plying Pantai Losari. More importantly, the restaurant is clean and comfortable and the food, fresh and tasty. I had ikan bakar and stir fry kangkung. Both were excellent and reasonably priced.

The interior and the street location is not that nice, but hey, this is Makassar, what did you expect! The food is very good and lots of choice. I got the seafood nasi goreng which was very nice. Better speak some bahasa Indonesia, because they do not speak english.

Thank herman p
