“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Amazing food and fantastic atmosphere right on the ferry beach to the Gilis. Only serving fried fish with fiery sambal, spicy fish and gourd soup and rice, this is a classic – full of locals and going strong since 1941. You don't even need to order – the lovely ladies will bring you the only dish they serve to your table. Just make sure you're there by 11:30 when it closes. We were the only ferengi in there the three times we ate there. One of the best meals I've eaten in Bali, if not ever. Why aren't there more restaurants just doing one thing, really really really well?

“Spicy authentico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

You shouldn't miss this authentico when you are in Bali. *******
The place is a "warung" so don't expect an aircon or any fancy ambience but the sea breeze.

“Nothing special about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

We heard about Warung Mak Beng from an acquaintance and decided to give it a try.

The warung was very hot, stuffy and crowded.
Patrons had to find vacant seats by themselves.
And some of the patrons were also smoking freely :(

The fish soup was salty, the fried fish was so-so.
Only the sambal was pretty good.

In our opinions, there are many better eating places in Bali compared to Warung Mak Beng.

“Must try fried fish set meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

Great little shop packed with the locals, well worth the long queue. Went there for lunch, prepare to sweat. Simple menu - set comes with fried fish, fish head soup & rice. Order their jeruk (local orange juice) & side order fried fish egg, so good. A must go place for your tummy.
