This place is disgusting. When waiter weighted squid for us he added plate over the weights which was 200 grams. When we received grilled squid which was weighted for 650 grams - it was too small: less then a half of a portion that we have ordered. Waiter started shouting on me that I've needed to tell about it when... More

Came here for dinner one night midweek on our recent trip to Bali. It was unfortunate we chose a night where it rained the whole time so we weren't able to sit outside on the beach but got a table inside next to the window. The seafood here is fresh and delicious and well priced. We ordered king prawns, snapper... More

I was taken here by our driver though we did not want it. He was so keen on this one so we decided to give it a try. When we arrived, the restaurant was crowded, dark and full smell of food. It looked really like a busy street restaurant at lunch time. We couldn't seat outside because it was super... More

It started off good and we thought we were getting a great deal. However, we paid AUD $200 for myself and my husband, which initially we thought was ok. One of the waiter Choki totally made a killing on us. When I went to pay at the counter, he stopped me and told me that I need to pay cash... More

Our taxi driver cautioned us to look at the price carefully before ordering the seafood. He's right as we paid over idr 300k (+ 3% if paid by credit card) for just 4 tiny shrimps and one squid. Food was cold and the taste was mediocre. Only recommended for first-time tourists.

Taken by a driver like so many others, who is obviously receiving kickbacks. There are many better options down the beach, although I would not recommend Jimbaran Bay at all as it is disgustingly dirty with piles of rubbish on the beach. Locals should be ashamed of how they treat their beautiful island. The restaurant is weirdly dark and dated,... More

As per many other reviews, were taken here by our driver. Pretty dated and ordinary surrounds and the beach is very dirty at the wave line, particularly at this time of the year. Lunch was way overpriced, ordered 2 servings of chips as some with us weren't into seafood. Very small portion and extra serving of "vegetables" were cold and... More
