Its 62-year-old owner Ali Buah said three-metre high waves crashed against the restaurant building and its wooden walkway on Tuesday night, causing damage estimated at RM100,000.
“That was 8 pm and it happened in the blink of an eye. We had never experienced such massive waves before.
Ali has temporarily closed the restaurant, located 12 km from the town centre, for repairs.
Labuan Corporation Valuation, Investment and Asset Management Department director Gilbert Chin said emergency repair works on the walkway would commence soon involving an allocation of about RM50, 000.
The waters had submerged more than 30 concrete and wooden bridges in their villages.
