This place is extremely pricey. Meal for 2 ended up coming to almost 100k and we only ordered snapper and calamari. The views are really great however you do get hasselled by a band that will sing a song infront of your table and expect a tip. The food was tasty however very over cooked. All meals come with a...

Like everyone else on this TripAdvisor, we were taken there by our driver for an overdue lunch at 2pm. The restaurant was 90 % empty. I was very happy with the 18k idr/kg Grouper!! Fresh and juicy when steamed. Like the saying goes, fresh food does not need much cooking. This one fills me up nicely. The clams at 7000... More

It's one of the famous seafood cafes at Jimbaran bay. Sunsets and sea breeze will amuse you. Just get ready for some pricey foods. If you want to order, make sure you know the price so you won't be shocked by the bill :) The waitress are helpful that time and gave us a pretty service.We also entertained by beautiful... More

This is not budget dining, friends. But the seafood is fresh, and prepared well. The setting is superb for sunset. Probably best as a romantic sunset dinner for two, when you feel like a bit of a splurge... a good $80 USD for two. I do feel like the tourist area of Jimbaran is a bit of a racquet... the... More

On arrival we were given an amazing table right at the front of the beach. We were so happy the sunset amazing and service was fast. But they only showed us the set... More

Our driver brought us here (as seems to be the trend) and unfortunately we have nothing good to say about our experience. Hugely overpriced and the food was very ordinary! We paid $95 AUD for a seafood package and wish we hadn't.

So we also had our taxi driver drive us in ( he is great and clearly doesn't know how bad this place is). The location is beautiful but the food is not good at all- we actually sent one dish back as it was inedible and the waiter ( who was also pretty good and a highlight) was fairly horrified... More

We were taken to this ghastly place by our driver,it is one of I think 24 restaurants on the Jimbaran Bay. The fish was old and tired the waiter surly,the fish chowder was thin and the beach was like Blackpool full of noisy young taking selfies,21%service charge and a bill of over I.I million rupiah.
