Of all the restaurants on Jeju, it seems appropriate to start with the one that I have visited the most: Hong Sung Bang. Not because it's my favourite necessarily, but because my students always want to go here and it is reasonably priced. Like seriously: they ALWAYS want to go here.
Hong Sung Bang is a "Chinese-style" restaurant--with Chinese kitchen staff, so perhaps this is mostly true. (I have learned, since coming to Korea, that no matter what kind of cuisine you are having, it will be "koreanified" in some way shape or form ㅎㅎ).
The restaurant is nestled right at the start of the Saturday Market Road (I have yet to go to the Saturday Market and only know this because of the words on the arch in the following picture) near the Moseulpo Harbour.

I have been here with people who each order their own dish (with a shared Tangsuyuk) and I have been here with people who prefer to order 3-4 things altogether and share. Personally, I have never finished a full dish on my own and recommend sharing so that you can try different things.
During the most recent venture with my students, we ordered a 3 person set for 43,000 KRW even though we were 4 people. Here are some pictures of what we got:
