Went here a few months ago. We really wanted to go to another restaurant in Jimbaran Bay but the hotel said they couldn’t find it and they decided to book us a table here instead, a honeymoon table as they said. Already before going there I felt that it wouldn’t be all we hoped for. The driver was way to early and annoyed that we were “late” (30 minutes before take-off time). The drive was uneventful but when we got there it was… well unorganized chaos would probably describe it the best.
We were taken to a counter with a wide selection of seafood and the prices were quite high, even by Australian standards. We opted out on the overpriced lobster and chose to have 3 tiger prawns each (total of 6) and 2 Red Snappers. The prawns were $32 / kg and ended up at a total of $38 (1.2kg) and the snapper at $16 / kg (total of $22 for 1.4kg) I have no clue how the 6 prawns could end up weighing 1.2kg’s but I couldn’t be bothered at that stage, I was just way too hungry.
We were led to a table on the beach with stunning views, it was quite romantic sitting on the beach watching the views but at the same time it was just crowded. I never understood what was the deal with the “honeymoon table” until our dinner was over and they realized that they had given us the wrong table when we arrived. We were supposed to have the one with undisturbed views, flowers and candles that were in front of ours.
Anyway, we were served some soup as starter but I only tasted it and never ate it as it was way too salty. The seafood came in, freshly bbq’d and I have to say it was delish. I really liked the taste of it. The condiments that it came with were nice as well. I am just having a problem with all the seafood in Bali not being filleted and served with bones and everything, but I guess that is just the way they do it over there.
The food was quite nice but way too pricey, and there are just too much people for my taste, if the wind is blowing the wrong way the entire beach is just filled with bbs smoke.
I don’t really know what to say… Its another Bali-tourist trap. I don’t think I will return for a “romantic beach sunset dinner” at Ganesha Cafe or Jimbaran Bay. It is too crowded for romantic, way too expensive and the food not even that good in the first place. There are heaps of better places in Tuban, Kuta or Legian that are on the beach that serves excellent food, great service and with the same beautiful sunset that can be enjoyed with your loved one.
