Enjoyed a fantastic evening with friends recently at La Playa Cafe. Sat right on the beach which I can definitely recommend. We ordered a mixture of authentic Indonesian food as well as seafood & more traditional western cuisine. All meals were of a high standard & extremely good value for money. Can thoroughly recommend & a place we will visit... More

Good food served by candlelight with tablecloths on the beach. The selection of dishes is extensive. The local dishes in particular are delicious. Service is wonderful.

Dropped in for lunch after a couple oh hours on the beach and was very pleased with the quality of food. Sure it was only a Mayo and Tuna toasted sandwich but it was most enjoyable. Wine and beer were cold and service was pleasant. It is right on the edge of the sand beach so view great.

If you are in Sanur do yourself a favour and go to La Playa for lunch. The food is very good and well presented, staff very friendly and you are sitting on the beach front. Its also very good at night.

Right on the beach with amazingly good and cheap seafood and drink! I'm sure the meat etc was good too but with seafood like theirs - who needs anything else? I came back for both lunch and dinner several times.

Called in for lunch and returned for dinner. The seared tuna is amazing for Rp4,500 (under $5 aud). They usually have seared scallops but the restaurant has not been able to purchase the scallops for the last couple of months - apparently this is amazing too. Chicken curry was substandard as it seemed powdery. The Beef Rendang was full flavoured... More

Had a few beers and decided to try the tuna with sesame seeds and wasabe. Beautifully cooked and presented. Will be trying at home for sure.

Had a nice family meal for a reasonable price right on the beach but in shade. Good choice of food and we enjoyed a mix of western and local fare. Toilets were clean too!
