Wow! The restaurant looks ordinary from the outside but the food is anything but. I was brought here by local friends and the restaurant was full with local people which is always a good sign. Having read some of the reviews from people who have...been disappointed, I would say the key here is to go with the chef’s recommendations. The lobster Thermidor was as good as I have had anywhere with a much less heavy sauce than usual but still extremely tasty. The black pepper crispy squid and the red snapper with Thai curry paste were excellent too. The broccoli cooked in garlic was a nice accompaniment. Leave room for the fried ice cream desert ( a bit like ice cream in a kind of flat doughnut pastry). You can byo wine. All in all great food and wonderful value. The restaurant is not on the beach but there is a nice beach about ten metres away.More

We had had a superb lunch here and relished the open air 'funky' vibe. the prawns that we shared were plump and very well-spiced. tangy and delicious! The service was friendly to boot!

Recommended by staff in hotel. Not at all disappointed. Fish & prawns were super fresh. Veges were fresh. All dishes properly cooked. Service is not too bad but kind of expected. What's expensive were the peanuts & wet towels, both not requested but just placed...on the table.More

Came here for dinner, only two tables were occupied, ordered five dishes, prawns were not fresh, the tofu and vegetable dishes were average just like you find anywhere else and so were the other two dishes, one a fried mee and the other fried mee...hoon.More

Open air restaurant so it can get rather hot, it is also quite a drive from town around. However, the food was nice and reasonably priced. Would recommend anyone looking for seafood.

Went for late dinner on Saturday night as a non local group. We really enjoyed crabs, steamed garoupa, lobster and squids..all was perfect and the owner kindly dropped us back in our condo when we couldn't find a grab to pick us up ! On...the top in kindness and customer service.More

Good seafood at reasonable price. It is not a fancy place but the quality of the food - seafood & noodles would qualify it for a repeat visit.

This restaurant is further away from the more happening areas of Batu Ferringhi. There is zero fanciness about this place and its cleanliness may be questionable, especially the bathrooms. But the food is pretty darn good. We ordered the sweet and sour crabs and they...were quite delicious.. had them with the seafood fried rice. We were very lucky to get a Grab to get us back to our resort because they don't normally go in that area. Our Grab driver just happened to drop off another passenger nearby.More

We stumbled across this place after hiking to monkey beach. After a quick check on Tripadvisor I saw others recommended it. There was a lot of locals there in big groups and that is always a good sign! The service was really good, the staff...advised on what they recommend for what was good on that day, how much food we would need. We got he black pepper squid with steamed local fish cooked Thai style (can't remember the name of the fish now). The squid was deliciously fresh and crispy. The black pepper sauce was incredible! I have never had anything like it. The fish was cooked to perfection and was very moist. It had a good amount of spice which is what we asked for. The fish was a little expensive and goes by weight so each time it will be a slightly different price due to what they caught that day. We would not hesitate to go back toFishing Village Seafood.More
