Cooking Fever - Seafood Restaurant Strategy Guide

Seafood Restaurant Strategy Overview

The Seafood Restaurant in Cooking Fever serves up Lobster, Octopus and Mussels along with sides and soup.  The seafood cooks fairly slowly so upgrades are needed in order to keep customers happy and serve food quickly enough.  However, the catch is that the seafood also overcooks quickly so you have to keep a close eye on your cooking pots.  An automated cooking machine will become available at Level 27, which you can buy for 70 gems.  It is a must-have item because you won't need to worry about cooking or burning your food; it makes this restaurant much more enjoyable to play.  It is only available to purchase for 72 hours.  If you don't buy it in time you will need to make quite a few costly upgrades in order to pass levels.

See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy. 

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Continually click on your Soup Stove machine throughout the level so that it is always refilling the Soup.  Keep it fully stocked at all times and click on it even when its already full.  It doesn't refill itself automatically like the Juice Dispenser.
  • At Level 1, upgrade all Interior Upgrades to Level 1 that need only coins (television, speakers, tables, barstools, fan)
  • Lobster in the Pot task => Leave the lobster in the pot (yes, let it burn) for the entire level
  • Upgrade the Soup Pot to Level 2 before Level 22 if you have enough gems
  • Upgrade Interior Tables and Barstools to Level 1 by Level 20
  • Kitchen food upgrades only increase price by $1, so the majority of food items will need to be upgraded to at least Level 2 in order to get enough coins to pass a level with 3 stars
  • Complete the "Serve 4 mussels in 6 seconds" challenge on Level 19.  Only cook one lobster and one octopus while filling all remaining plates and warmers with mussels.  Let customers ordering mussels wait but server those wanting lobster and octopus.  Once you have 4 customers waiting for mussels, serve them quickly.
