Indonesian seems to charge foreigners visiting their country more for their food compared to locals... It's expensive eating in Makassar when they don't display prices for the dishes...Eat at those displaying prices on their Menu...Cost more than my home country, Malaysia food prices....

it almost 9 pm while we arrived. but the aroma of fresh catched seafood is always there while you mention Lae Lae. their seafood is tasty. sweet and juicy. along with mango chili or sambal mangga, make you can eat the whole fish alone. delicious

Located at Loasari beach, this is one of the famous seafood restaurant in Makassar. There was several choices of seafood to grill or fry.

Try the banana leaf grilled fish eggs. Always crowded but there's always a table and quick service. Good place that often frequented by the vice president

There's no visit to Makassar if you don't go to this restaurant. Their service is fast, food is good and amazingly, no waiter write down the order. They all memorize it in their head.

This is second time i visited this restaurant. I found it was ordinary taste and the sambal was not that good. The area was not clean too. The price was OK. A bit regret to visit.

Basic restaurant popular by locals, simply interior. You can choise a fish and he was tasty, but not super. But .... in and around the toilets is it very dirty, and be carefull ... very slippery. A lot of the young crew of servers (!students!) who are without work because less custemers, amuse them very noicy behind and in front... More

The interior is basic and smokey, but very clean, the cooks are friendly and tolerant with idiot foreigners who want fish but don't know which one. The food is delicious, perfectly cooked, an absoute feast of flavours, textures and a variety of fish type. We loved it.
