Had read through reviews before travel to Bali, went to this highly recommended Lia Cafe at Jimbaran. Great view for dinner, food are so yummy with reasonable price and portion. Waiting time is slightly longer but is fine as I was spending most of my waiting time for photo shooting. Will visit again if I go Bali again

Very good place to enjoy the sunset directly at the beach while having a delicious seafood dinner. The service wasn't as pushy as at other places at Jimbaran beach.

I never had so nay shells on my plate in my entire life but i must admit that i ate a lot of prawn, crab during my time there. The seafood was undoubtably fresh, and the grill was good. So it really gives a good taste - taste of the sea which made me order extra portion of squid. There... More

Those were the words of our friends, upon arriving. My wife and I have been to this stretch of beach to eat before -- one time good, another not so good. We agreed, Lia's place really was amazing. Great value, great food, great service! When we come back, we'll certainly pick this little gem! Special thanks to the staff, who... More

I would rate this GOOD - between Average and Very Good. We had 2 x 1kg live swimming lobsters, a bottle of wine and 2 large Bintang beers. Spent just over 1,100,000 rupiahs for the lot. Not cheap but for a unique Balinese experience, it was worth it. The service was extremely friendly and warm. The food could have been... More

We discovered this resturant on our recent trip to Bali even though I had been many times before. The reason for this is the drivers will take you to the more expensive ones near the Intercontinental / Four Seasons resorts because they get commissions for doing so. Lia is situated near the Kendra resort further up the beach along with... More

Fantastic fresh seafood with a smile, and very inexpensive. This little restaurant would stand alone with a lot of the bigger more plush places but the food would match without a doubt.

4 of us dined at Lia Cafe and thoroughly enjoyed it. You can't beat sitting at a table on the beach, with your toes in the sand, watching the sunset over the ocean. The seafood selection is quite extensive, with the food chosen straight from tanks and cooked freshly. Our group enjoyed clams, squid, crab, lobster and fish. All was... More

So, we had a driver for a couple of day trips from Seminyak, and he was really keen for us to have a sunset & seafood evening at Jimbaron bay. I was dubious, as this had tourist trap written all over it, so we researched trip advisor and decided to try, with Lia restaurant seeming to have good reviews. On... More

After reading about various horror stories about the "other" touristy seafood joints along Jimbaran Bay, I together with my family (4 of us) asked the taxi from our hotel to take us straight to Lia Cafe. It was as expected, an unassuming set up at the end of the row (2nd last shop) at the cheaper end (left side of... More
