Got there shortly after sunset. Easy to get a table. The bbqed red snapper and shrimps are very nice. All with relatively fair prices.

Jimbaran is packed with seafood restaurants and your taxi driver might tell you that the prices are all the same or that there is one he can particularly recommend. He is wrong (most of the time). We learnt this the hard way after being dropped off at another seafood restaurant, balking at the high prices and appalling internet reviews and... More

Have no idea, why this restaurant has such a high rate in TA and mentioned in lonely planet guide. Perhaps others warungs in Jimbaran are worse, but we didn't check. The food is very plane, taste of clams and squid was ruined by quantity if spices, prawns were tasteless. Only fish was not bad.

I'm so glad we chose here. The food was exceptional and we got to see the sunset (unusual for wet season). Big tiger prawns and juicy whole fish were the highlights. Staff were very accommodating by putting us at a waterfront table. Reasonable prices too for Jimbaren. The only downfall was the bathroom. It was disgusting to say the least.... More

My favorite place in Jimbaran. To order simply choose the fresh sea food , after bargain prices they will cook for us... More

Delicious fish and seafood, served with rice and various dipping sauces (spicy!) and yum!! Great friendly service. Sitting on the beach, listening to the waves, candlelit, divine. My husband and I really enjoyed this dinner, the place and the service. We would highly recommend it. Also, just keep in mind you are in Bali and not in a high end... More

Very basic setup, but a much better option than the tourist ripoff places further up the beach. You still get a prime location on the beach for sunset. The food was basic, but tasty. For a family of three we spent less than 500,000 IDR ($50aud) which gave us a whole snapper, rice, fried squid, vegetables and five Bintangs.
