As frequent visitors to Candi Dasa we have tried many of the eateries in the small East Bali oceanfront town. Walking along the main road in Candi Dasa my wife noticed that Ashyana Candidasa Resort had an oceanfront restaurant. The menu posted roadside looked good. My heart was set on another dinner at Vincent's that night but the following night I gave in and we tried LeZat. Entering from the road you walk through the Ashyana bungalows and end up in Le Zat which is directly on the ocean. Sitting there looking over the ocean, a few boats and a beautiful sunset we enjoyed their small welcome ginger drink while looking over their menu selection. The kitchen is helmed by Gusti, Ketut and staff. They turn out some excellent meals that are artistically presented. We have eaten there probably 30+ times in the past 6 months. We have never been disappointed with our meals there. We have sampled almost everything on the Le Zat menu. They are all excellent but I am particularly fond of the fresh Mahi Mahi. Also the Chicken Satay is excellent. If you are a pie person be sure to try the Coconut Cream Pie. The service staff is delightful. Redana, Agus, Renti, Eka, Sumariati are a few of the smiling staff there to make your dining experience enjoyable.
Le Zat is on the ocean with a pool to one side. The ocean view is stunning with a breeze to keep you cool while you enjoy a few drinks before dinner. Wayan , the General Manager, is doing a super job creating one of the top dining establishments in Candi Dasa.
So for a dinner out in Candi Dasa our first choice is Le Zat for the great food, great service and a fabulous ocean setting ……. followed up by Vincent's down the street for great food and atmosphere but not on the ocean. Do yourself a favour and try both. This is not saying there are not other good restaurants in town…. just that these are our favourites.
NOTE: Le Zat is listed on TripAdvisor in BALI RESTAURANTS but not in CANDI DASA RESTAURANTS.
