New restaurant that deserves a shout out is this little beauty. Not good for a romantic meal for two but if you are looking for a place to go with family or a big group of friends then this is the place.

All new and sparkly the place is well designed, modern and very clean. Staff were very good (especially the little cute girl with amazing eyes who kept smiling at me - no really she did!!).

A wide variety of seafood dishes available (Squid, Shrimp, Fish, Mussels, Crabs Ö the list goes on and on!) and the prices are stupidly cheap as itís an opening special.

First time I checked it out the bill for 10 people was only 400,000 and there was a lot of food ordered. Second time I went down and this is the real tip kids ... bill was 250,000 and a gold credit card came out. We were told that on Mondays anybody who pays with a gold credit card can pay whatever they want! Cheap git with the gold credit card paid just 100,000 and nobody said a thing!

The place is near Izzi Pizza --- you canít miss it.

Oh one last thing. Avoid the smoking section ... its one tiny room and the smell will put you off your food! Go none smoking and nip outside for a smoke!

Chew, there are like 10 Izzi Pizzas in Jakarta. Which one is it near and does this seafood place have a name? Or is it like one of those open-air market deals?

Three Words: two thumbs up

Best value for the money spent in town for seafood in terms of taste, service and comfort.

I don't see beer on the menu. Is it just me, or does the thought of eating seafood without a coldie send a chill up your spine?
