The restaurant specialises in fresh fish and it's location overlooking the beach is perfect. Lighting and the sound of the sea lends to making the atmosphere quite romantic. The service is attentive and the food superb. There is a good selection of wine.

Enjoyed food here at Nelayan, the servings of food is big enough to make you fall asleep rigjt after eating due mainly to fullness. The taste is fantastic that you still want to order more but once is enough if you are on diet😜.
