Great Drinks & Fresh Juices, Great Beach Front Location, Not So Great Food

The pineapple crumble dessert is actually just a glass of whip cream with slices of pineapples, where's the good old biscuit/crumbled part??!! The meat on the beef kebab was hard and barely chewable, but it did come with a good sauce and crispy well seasoned french-fries. The grilled paprika was... read more

the seafood (lobster, fish and prawn) are delicious and the cold coconut drinks are delighted while you're relaxing by the beach. Then enjoy a fine coffee and listen to the music of the surf

We were literally off the boat and needed a place to grab a quick bite. Went in for a couple sausages, fries and nasi goreng. Over all it was good but nothing too over the top. They also provided the breakfast for our hotel and takeout. Breakfast was always great! They are also right on the beach which made it... More

Ugh - so gross. Not only did it take them nearly an hour to get us out food when the restaurant was 80% empty, the food they served us was stale and inedible. The fish tasted like it had been reheated three of four times and the French fries I got were clearly reheated and stale from days before.

The location of this cafe is ideal. Given it's situated right next to the area of reef where it's good to go snorkelling. The sunbeds are free if you order any food /drinks from here., I found the prices were bit HIGHER compared to other places given the service tax and gst were not inclusive.

Tonight I have learnt a valuable lesson when it comes to choosing a dinner venue based on TripAdvisor ratings alone. What a gem of a find, Although this restaurant is listed as French the food offering is truly international and well priced. The French aspect is achieved by the ambience but most importantly the passion and love that goes into... More

The service is standard, the view is great, the restaurant is quite cool with a gutted out boat as their bar and nice white table and chairs, the food was great... More

Went to the trawangan cafe a few times for coffee and had dinner also there. Coffee is excellent, the chicken satay was very good. Wanted to treat myself with a nutella crepe one evening but it was not overwhelming...very crispy and bit hard. But anything else was really fine. They have strong wifi amd the staff is also nice and... More
