We heard from people here at the Hyatt resort that this was the best fish restaurant in Bali, They were all correct. We were shown our main course before it was grilled. As an appetizer we were given fried potato wedges, which were excellent. Then our meal came. It was a complete grouper, which was not deboned. The taste was extra-fresh and tasty, but neither my wife nor I care to fight for our meal (having to debone the fish, etc.). The setting is directly on Benoa harbor, with exceptional views of the passing boats, airplanes coming in to land at Denpasar, and people enjoying the water sports of the area (parasailing, seadoo-ing, etc.). All in all it was a good experience, but we just didn't like fighting to fish bones. Service and taste were excellent!

We've been here many times and will always come to Surya Cafe for Lunch or Dinner. We love the clams and my children just can't stop eating it. The staffs are friendly too.

Not the easiest to find but it's worth it - away from the madding crowds of the Jimbaran seafood circus.

Food is simple and fresh - and you are right on the sea. Service good. Prices reasonable.

Go here before everybody else does.

This unassuming restaurant is nestled in a little Muslim enclave on the very tip of Tanjung Benoa and you could easily miss it if your cabbie doesn't know it. We have been coming here for at least 10 years, in days gone by you could go out the back and select your live seafood from large concrete tanks. The methods of cooking are predominantly grilling, steaming and deep frying. All dishes come with garlic butter or sambal. A family run business with friendly service. Limited English but enough to get by. Great views watching to ships in the harbour at night. This restaurant has become very popular over the years resulting in bus loads of domestic tourists at times meaning booking is essential. With fame has come a significant increase in prices. Small to medium live prawns are $A60.00 per kilo more expensive than in Australia, lobster same price as at home. You will probably do better than in Jimbaran Bay as these people are honest and their scales accurate. The fish and prawns don't shrink between the scales and the plate.
