The food portions are generous. We ordered deep fried light soya sauce fish, baby kailan, seafood fried rice and half portion traditional chicken. We ordered all small porrions but we couldn't finish. We have in total 2A2C. The bill came up about 972,000RP. The price and food are pretty average. Being a tourist area and with the nice ambience...i think... More

I like the seafood there because they were really fresh. What I dislike is the limited time we could enjoy our dinner. Hotel has arranged shuttle bus to go there at 630pm at night but u must finish your dinner and be ready to get back at 815pm. So, the dinner is just too rush for us even it tastes... More

Overpriced and starchy food....poor service...only good thing was the peace and quiet about the place and proximity to the sea...in fact, you are right above the sea..and free bus or buggy service to get here from mayang sari or any other hotel in nirwana beach resort...will never eat here again...cost 1.5 times what I would pay in Singapore..

Food is good, but chili crab in Singapore is better :). But overall is good. The Calypso bar next to it is sooo wonderful.

We went to had a dinner @ Kelong Restaurant, it was good Chinese seafood, the waiting is short and service is good. The restaurant is build on the sea water. The foods are abit expensive, but it's quite huge dishes and fit to our group of friend. If you have budget for this restaurant, pls try it.

Visited with a large group. The food was pretty average - not a lot of good meal choices in the resort. Good for bigger groups. The view at sunset would have been nice. Had sea snails, black pepper crab, prawns, Noodles, fish, kangkong, chicken and fruit.

A restaurant with good food. Had the black pepper crab, beef with veggies. The food was ok, nothing exceptional. Service is attentive and they all speak good English. The view is supposed to be nice, better go a bit early around 6Pm to enjoy the view. When is dark, it doesn't make any difference.

Go enjoy it. Walking out to it, reminds me of the Twighlight Zone :) One of my favorite bars for atmosphere.

They offer tasty seafood and dishes. Has a nice view of sunset too. Just because it's in Indonesia doesn't mean it cheaper. Being close to Singapore and mostly frequented by tourists from Singapore, the price are about the same from the ones you can buy in SG. The place is quiet and dimly lit which in a way is good...

My husband and I enjoyed the peaceful environment in the restaurant but the seafood was very fresh and delicious. But, the mee goreng (fried noodle) was so expensive (around SGD12). However, my husband said it was super tasty that he thinks it's worth it.
