We went for dinner here in the Portuguese settlement given the good reviews. While the service was good and staff friendly and seafood fresh, I have to say that we were very disappointed with the flavours. Overpowering use of spices, pastes and butter / oil which ruins the taste of the dish. We would have been better off eating at the stall at the neighbouring food court recommended by our driver I think.

Awesome food. The butter garlic prawns, chilli grab were awesome. The baked otak otak fish was a complete surprise as it was out of the world. Just loved every thing. The lovely lady helen served us with great love and it was a beautiful evening spent well.

A very peaceful place to having our dinner and the host is welcome for our arrival. The food is nice and price is reasonable. Although the prawn not so fresh but it is acceptable. Highly recommended.

loved the food. the restaurant is no-frills and is in the portuguese settlement. it is run by three sisters and one of their husbands. we met two of the four - very personable. had to wait a looonnnngg time for our food but couldn't really carp given the apologetic-ness and explaining-ness of the owners. in the end it was well worth the wait. we didn't mind because it's in the open (with a roof), close enough to the sea to feel (or imagine you feel) the sea breeze, and the music (owners' selection) was delightful (mostly old 70s hits). we ordered chili crab, black pepper crab, baked portuguese fish and stir fried, assorted veggies. the last were the best stir fried veggies i've ever eaten anywhere. each dish was delectable. the baked fish was swimming in oil and we almost felt like we had to dig and delve to get to the fish. that apart, it was all good.
