I have stayed here every year for the last six years and will stay again and again. The rooms are always clean, the beds comfortable and they do the best breakfast in Candidasa, I have tried lots of places and keep coming back to Temple Cafe for my breakfast. Food is very nice and good price.The staff are always smiling and happy to serve. You can enjoy lying on the beach front deck chairs soaking up the sun or reading your favourite novel. The wonderful staff regularly come around and ask if there's anything you would like brought to you whether it be icy cold Bintang or just a snack. I highly recommend staying here.

Being Australian, and retired, we have fallen into going to Bali almost yearly, especially when see a cheap airline price, and Candi Dasa has become our favourite place to stay. Having been so happy with Temple cafe and Seaside Cottages, this has become a bit of a 'home-away-from-home'! Other reviews cover it, but basically we love it because wonderful position combines with quality, price, and service. Love having a drink seaside to watch the sunsets, hear the waves crash at night, look out to the passing boats and Nusa Penida Island during the day. There is a fixed price gift shop attached, and a salon for some pampering, AND one of the staff Komang has a shirt-making/designing talent! (so men, I recommend you check out his shirts in the salon, I was most impressed). They organized a driver for me from airport, and to travel onto Ubud after my 6 night stay- Komang was lovely, a very safe driver. The other thing we like about staying here is, if do not dine in, there are so many restaurants along the street for a 'night out, many with good music nights. You can pick up a copy of the excellent tourist booklet 'Candi Dasa Network' book in the temple cafe. You may be surprised at how much there is to do. Some people may think the absence of a sandy beach is a problem,(coming from Australia we do not go to Bali for beaches!)..but you can take a swim, as we do, nearby (in front of Pandan restaurant) where there is some sand, or head up to White Sand Beach by boat or car/bike..going out in a boat is always a highlight for us, looking back at Mt Agung. We recommend people visit this less touristy part of Bali.

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful place! My partner and I stayed here for several nights at the end of July - start of August. The setting is wonderful and SO peaceful. The staff are incredibly friendly, attentive, welcoming and helpful. The food here is great too - we sample several items on the breakfast and diner menu, all of which were delicious and reasonably priced. The cottage we had booked was basic, (we knew this prior to arrival and was reflected in the price) but we loved it. It was so nice getting cozeyed up in bed there in the evening to the sound f the waves crashing and palm trees blowing in the wind! They sell homemade jams and chutneys and there are two lovely little dogs who live on site too. No complaints about this place whatsoever. Thank you for such a wonderful stay :-) xx

Stayed one night here only,memorable stay,luv its design,full of Balinese elements,and luv its beach front cottages,nice view,you can have breakfast or dinner at the seaside,breakfast not included in your room price,so must order at the caunter,i ordered scramble eggs with toast and papaya juice,price is okay, taste not bad,luv it juice,even no sugar added,still good.i had dinner on the first night also,ordered mie goreng and papaya juice,mie goreng delicious though a bit salty.staffs friendly and helpful,polite also,think that they are the treasure of Temple cafe,make customer feel comfortable.the room big enough,bath room spacious,with aircon and hotwater,be noted that some cheaper cottages dont have.before check in booked a driver with car via email from them,at very reasonable price for 8-10 hours tour(10.30am- 20.00pm) recommended,the driver's skill is good,safe and not too fast,visited Jasri,Teganan and had a dinner on the way to airport,be noted that traffic around kuta area is terrible.regret stayed one nights only,will stay longer if have chance,recommended to those who luv sea view and quiet stay.

Room Tip: Some rooms fan only and no hot water,try beach front cottages with aircon. and hot water
