Jeju Island Restaurants 2017 – Best places to eat for Seafood, Black Pork and More
Jeju Island family trip 2017!!!
During our trip to Korea this summer, we decided to squeeze in a 4 day trip to Jeju Island. Jeju Do (제주도) has changed so much in recent years and I have been wanting to visit especially with our daughter as a family. We were also hoping that we could take our in-law family with us as part of my mother-in-law’s 80th Birthday celebration but both she and my sister-in-law could not make it..so it was mostly just us three – except for the last day when our niece joined us!!
BTW, my niece Heyon who is an artist and art therapist – I LOVE what she does and she is also behind my beautiful pins that I share on pinterest. Thank you Heyon for your help always!!
Visit her Astropaperboat site for more beautiful art that you can even purchase!
I will be writing another post about ‘things to do in Jeju Island’ soon, so let’s just get right into it.
Best Jeju Restaurant for Seafood, Pork and More
Jeju Ohseong Galchi 오성 갈치 (Largehead Hairtail Fish) 제주 오성식당 – Hairtail fish and Abalone
Black Ranch 꺼멍목장 (Kkeomeong Mokjang) – Black Pork and Okdom 옥돔 (Red Tile Fish)
This is a relatively new/unknown place so it didn’t even show up on our car’s navigation. It’s mainly a Jeju Black Pork BBQ place but they also had grilled red tile fish (Okdom Gui) on the menu. A modern-style building (definitely modern with a younger vibe) with self-serve banchan. All the side dishes were yummy and we got some great thick pork belly pieces. The food is all quite good and perhaps what’s even better is that there’s a direct view to the ocean from the restaurant!!
BTW, I didn’t bring my camera with me so we took pictures with our phone and this is what happens when I ask my husband to take pictures…

Address – 338, Ieodo-ro, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do
Venite 베니떼 – Fabulous Italian food in Seogwipo, Jeju
** It’s NOT clear if this restaurant is still open for business. They have no website, social media.. and the last review I saw on Korean internet is only 2020. **
Took a picture of their menu display which was written on an empty wine bottle in between other bottles.
Sogob-E 소곱에 – Seafood Ramen Shop
If you are in the mood for some spicy seafoody ramen 😜 😚then this IS where you need to go!
Their pajeon was perhaps one of the best I have tasted in a while, wonderfully crisp and full of ocean flavor. They don’t skimp on ingredients. I love it when there’s a lot of seafood in my pajeon. I loved how they had layers of crab meat become the crispy shell to the whole pajeon. That’s all they have on the menu aside from Fried Rice 볶음밥 which is their child’s menu. Side dishes are self-serve so get started on that. We went a bit early for lunch and because this is really popular place, the place filled up pretty quickly.
Other Jeju Restaurants recommended by my sister #3
- Deomjang Jungmun (덤장중문본점) – traditional Korean/Jeju food in a large restaurant setting. Big building so you can’t miss it. Basically you order a 상차림 Sangcharim (table full of food with many side dishes), not individual dishes. 17, Cheonjeyeon-ro, Jeju, Jeju Island, South Korea
