Was there for the Indonesian food. Although the Indonesian food menu isn't extensive but the Melasti fried rice and the soto ayam tasted authentic and yummy. Service is friendly as well

Ordered a Bali Seafood basket. Seafood was way over cooked. And some of the pieces smelt like old (or yesterday's) pre cooked fish. The service was average at best. I had a banana fritter for dessert which was served with nothing other than just the battered banana. No sugar, cinnamon or anything to compliment the dessert. My baby snapper was... More

The location is quite far away from Jimbaran Bay seafood club, so not crowded compare to there. View is nice, staff quite ok but the food is just normal. Is suitable for person did not like crowded.

We turned up to find that there is a big party going on. There were about 15-20 coaches outside the restaurant! The staff did not warn us of this nor did the management close the restaurant. The staff could bearly manage. We waited 30mins to order and then waited another 45mins for our starter to turn up. Then the party... More

The service and food are very good and the view of the water and sunset are really nice. It is not cheap per Bali Standard (but it is less than the prices where we live). We liked it and went twice to eat there.

The portions are extremely small and not value for money.The prawns stick to the shell and you hardly taste meat,similarly for the crabs.The lobster was terribly small. Disappointing!

Our hotel recommended this place and organised "free transport" telling us that the restaurant would pay for a driver to pick us up, take us there and bring us home for "free". I suspect the driver's fee is built into their prices as the food was pricey by Bali standards. We had 6 grilled prawns (in garlic and ginger), 6... More

Stopped in for lunch here. Service was a bit slow but worth the wait. It was the best Nasi Goreng we had in Bali. Beer was cold and very cheap. One of the kids had lasagne and said it was great.
