As the name suggest, Monster Seafood is a seafood specialty restaurant. It is located in Ancol Beach City Mall LG floor with 2 separated areas, indoor and outdoor. Our favorite spot is certainly the outdoor table, you’ll get sea breeze to complete the seafood dining experience. One major thing that we love from this restaurant is the Fixed Price per portion.
Normally seafood restaurant will charge their seafood based on the market price and then the price and portion of the food will be based on the size of seafood available, so you’ll have to guess how much your order will cost. Luckily here in Monster Seafood, the seafood menu has Fixed Price per portion, that’s one of the major things that we love from this restaurant. Here in Monster Seafood, you can find wide range of Fresh & Live seafood selection from fish, clam, shrimp, squid, crab, and other dishes to complete the meal such as vegetables, noodles, rice, fried tofu, etc with price ranging from IDR 5k to IDR 35k for drink and IDR 10k to IDR 550k for food.

Seafood Boiled IDR 235k (Medium)
One word, GIGANTIC!! Eventhough we ordered the medium portion, it still came in huge portion. The large platter of seafood has a bit of everything, crab, shrimp, squid, clam, potato, and corn cooked in their signature “boiled” seasoning.
Kerapu (Live) Saus Monster IDR 175k
This is their newest menu, live Kerapu fish steamed with special Monster sauce. The fish was very meaty yet sooo tender and soft, it just goes perfectly with flavorful rich sauce. The sauce has a distinctive unique taste and aroma, it’s spicy, savory, and tangy with amazing aroma thanks to the use of “Kecombrang” flower. Must try!!
Udang Papua Tiger BBQ IDR 65k // Saus Lemon IDR 65k
The fresh and huge Papua Tiger Shrimp is available in 3 types, BBQ, Saus Mentega, and Saus Lemon. The lemon sauce version is deep fried till golden crispy on the outside then drizzled with sweet and sour zesty lemon sauce. It was enjoyable but our favorite has gotta be the BBQ version.
