#1 Crab & Lobster Seafood Oyster Bar
It’s a mess and that’s why we’re here for! Established as the first few Crab & Lobsters shell-out spot in Penang, your table will be your plate and diners will savor the crustaceans using gloved hands so this might not be the ideal place for a romantic date. Coming from the live stocks in aquarium or refrigerator to ensure that seafood delivered to customers are the freshest they can get in the market.

If you decide to visit for dinner, advance reservation is recommended.

#3 Briyani + Shell out @ The Kunjaraamm

#4 Jumbo Platter @ The Hilltop
Who doesn’t love seafood? Even better—who doesn’t love Thai-style cooking seafood that focuses on the idea of perfectly balanced flavours—its sourness, sweetness, saltiness, and spiciness, together in unison creating plates of seafood heaven. We’re here unforgivingly for the jumbo platter!!!! While you’re at it, give their Salt egg squid a try. Utterly delicious!

#5 Fizzy Cafe
Penang Island welcomes another Seafood-eatery that serves Seafood with the similar style to Cafe & lobster Seafood Bar and we aren’t complaining! Fizzy Cafe manned by an awesome Malay family,won’t lure in you by importing seafood but serve you the freshest of the fresh source since they’re located very close to the fishing village, hence, freshness is a guarantee. Order the Shellrock combo in Fizzy Cafe.
Worth Rm 70-combo set consists of 2 large Flower Crabs, 3 medium-large Prawns, 300 grams of Flower Clams and 300 grams of Clams as well as some crunchy greens. Diners can opt to enjoy the Seafood with complimentary White Rice. If that isn’t to bring the family together for a fun get to together, I dunno what will.
#6 Paper Lobster
Fan of garlic and butter? Paper lobster is known for that dipping sauce and they’re so good at it, customers can’t stop coming back for more. Known to impress with their Louisiana Seafood Boil, most of the kinds of seafood here are cook with herbs and spices instead of cooking it in one sauce in order to surface the natural taste with a touch of flavor. Yasssss.
If you ain’t-a fan of Garlic Butter, try the lava or cream instead and be amazed! Paper Lobster seafood sets are of a good combination of crabs, big prawns, baby lobsters, mussels, clams, corns, potatoes.I reckon you’ve got the drill!
#7 Le Harlequin Cafe
Relatively new in the scene, Le Harlequin sounds like a shop selling ya pastries but NO! They love fresh aquatic lives in their mouth in a messy mess manner! Compared the other restaurants, this cafe caters the customers in an affordable manner, that’s news right there! Fresh and stir-fried to complement Asian tastebuds they imrpess with their price as well. Instead of the rm148 for Meat Crab and RM168 for Egg Crab, enjoy dining with on Harley Crab Baker for RM99 only that can be easily shared by a crowd of 3. The set also comes with a concoction of Clams, Mussels, Yabbies, Prawns, Sausages, and Corns.
