We were brought to this restaurant by our driver without prior knowledge. He drove straight into this restaurant and we were ushered to the seating. Having to trust him was our first mistake as we thought he may know the area better and knew that this restaurant was better (how naive). The food from the menu was unreasonably high. Giving...

Having dinner along the beach at Jimbaran has been one of the highlights of my trip to Bali. Think long stretch of white sandy beaches, outdoor dining and fresh seafood. Although we paid around $120AUD for a shared seafood platter and drinks for two, it was well worth it. The seafood was fresh and well cooked. We watched the sunset... More

Our taxi driver dropped us straight off in this restaurants driveway. As soon as we stepped out we got shunted in through the front entrance to sit at a table on the beach. We said no we want to look around but it was really late & when we looked up the beach there were so so many restaurants so... More

Be very careful when ordering. Calculate the weight of what u wants to eat. If not, u will pay xtra money. I eat there for 7 person & i pay 2.5 million rupiah just to eat 7 coconut, rice for 7 person, 2 regular plate of squid, 2 regular grilled fish & 1 regular fried fish.

Food was cold and service almost non existent...I am sure there is much better on Jimbaran beach...We went there as part.of an all included afternoon, so make sure you check their reviews before booking, not like we did ;) lesson learned!!

After a long flight and late check in, they happily allowed us to come and enjoy both only the amazing food but beautiful scene! We got to select the fresh seafood that we wanted, we chose the king prawns (they were the size of my head!!) and squid, the chef also cooked up some fresh veg with chilli and garlic... More

Contrary to quite a lot of reviewers, we did have a great time there, soaking up the ambience.What many of the writers of negative reviews don't seem to get is: this, like all the other seafood cafes along Jimbaran beach, is not a restaurant, it is, as it claims, a cafe. They do seafood at mostly near market prices by... More

What i like abt the place is that the ambience is really good. Upon arrival, we were given a welcome drink and ushered to a table. Ground Staff(servers) were not that welcoming. The food was so so nothing to be wowed about. We got ourselves a bbq fish(kakap putih), mussels, cumi goreng( fried squid) and fried vegetables. And pricing wise... More

This place we thought would be nice for fish and chips lunch. However the waitress was pushing for us to order the $150 -$200 seafood banquet. No way we just settled for bowl of chips and a few rounds of drinks! Lovely location which at night would have beautiful sunset views. When we paid the waitress was mumblimg tips. No... More

This place is disgusting and far from a nice place......very disappointing. Waitresses were very unfriendly and were trying to push the very expensive overpriced banquet on to us. Not a great experience. Very dirty place. We only ordered drinks and chose not to eat there because of the filth of the place.
