Gangneung Gyeongpo Beach Seafood Restaurant: Hanmi Seafood

One of Gangneung’s iconic natural attractions is Gyeongpo Lake. Near Gyeongpo Lake, you’ll find the renowned Gyeongpodae, recognized as one of the Eight Scenic Views of Gwandong. To the east lies Gyeongpo Beach, the largest beach on the East Coast.

“Gyeongpo Beach Seafood Restaurant: Hanmi Seafood”

Gyeongpo Beach boasts an impressive length of 1.8 kilometers, offering a stretch of diverse restaurants along the shoreline. Being a seaside area, you’ll find many eateries specializing in fresh seafood.

Among them is Hanmi Seafood, a restaurant that has been serving seafood since 1980, earning a reputation as a must-visit eatery near Gyeongpo Beach.

“Affordable Seafood Dining”

At Hanmi Seafood, you can also order individual menu items. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, you can enjoy a meal of seafood for around 10,000 to 20,000 KRW.

However, when visiting the seaside, many prefer to indulge in a hearty seafood feast. In such cases, ordering a set menu provides a substantial and satisfying dining experience.

“Assorted Seafood Set: 100,000 KRW”

Since we made a special trip to Gangneung, we opted for a set menu. There were various set menus available, and this time, we chose the 100,000 KRW Assorted Seafood Set.

Once you place your order, you’ll be treated to an array of appetizers. As you savor these starters, the main event, a selection of fresh seafood, makes its appearance. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a rich variety of seafood. Given the proximity to the seaside, the seafood is exceptionally fresh.

After savoring the main dishes, you can conclude your meal with a hearty seafood stew. While seafood can be quite expensive if ordered a la carte, Hanmi Seafood provides an excellent option for indulging in a sumptuous seaside feast.

“A Spacious Two-Story Restaurant”

Hanmi Seafood is a large two-story restaurant. While you can find seating on the first floor, the second floor offers an even more expansive dining area.

The first floor features tables in a traditional dining hall setup, while the second floor offers floor seating in private rooms, allowing guests to dine while enjoying a beautiful view of the sea in front of Gyeongpo Beach.

Thanks to this setup, most guests on the second floor were couples, making it an ideal spot for a romantic date. It’s a place where you can enjoy delicious food and breathtaking views all in one.

Of course, it’s not just for couples – it’s also a great place to enjoy a luxurious meal with close friends while exploring Gangneung.
