Not what it used to be

I've been coming to Bali for 32 years. I have seen many changes ., some good some not so good. I went to one of my favourite haunts for the first time in 2 years at Jimbaran Bay. The sunsets never change.! For a beer on the beach watching the sun set and watching the Bukit light up its... read more

We were having dinner on New Years before the hotel party and the beach was so dirty!!! The food was nice though. I liked the red snapper. If I return to Bali this is not where I would return.

The food is great and it has a beach right behind the restaurant so you feel like you're dining by the beach, but without all the messiness of the sand that gets in your food.

There are strings of restaurants along the Jimbaran bay. All of them offer the same concept of dining experience: fresh seafood you pick up right at the front before you sit at your table on the beach sand and their Balinese seafood cooked in their iconic chilli based seafood grill served with steamed rice and assorted sambals (again, chilli based...

Probably your guide / taxi driver will recommend Jimbaran Bay and offer to take you to one of the restaurants there to enjoy a 'romantic dinner with the best seafood'. I believe the drivers get some money from the restaurants for the guests they take there... Positives: + the setup is nice: dinner tables are right on the beach, you... More

Is it really fresh? The seafood, most of them were already iced when we ordered them. The way the food was prepared was not fantastic either. Flies flew over all the food as expected from eating outdoors in Indonesia. Bad idea to have an early dinner as it was so hot at the beach and the corn on the cob... More

Beautiful location right on the beach with a beautiful sunset! The seafood dinner was nice, but way over priced and the service was average. To finish off they then charged a 3% surcharge for credit card payment . It was nice but will never do it again . If you want to try be prepared to be ripped off!
