Relaxing, quiet place to just hang around and enjoy life, nice food everywhere :-) At Ganesha's you can get a deck chair for free, if you order a drink. And you get nuts with the drink. Delicious Food also there :-)

My husband and I had booked a stay at a hotel in Jimbaran Bay having heard about the wonderful candle-lit seafood dinners on the beach. The sunset and setting was beautiful but not the food. We ordered the dinner package that included lobster and were looking forward to a feast. Cost was 240,000 IRp which is reasonably high by Jimbaran... More

The sunset was perfect and the beach was picturesque! My food came with 2 lobsters, 1 crab, 6 oysters, 6 prawns, 1 fish, some calamari together with steamed rice, vegetables and fruits. Yes, it was an unbelievably huge portion size for one person and I re-confirmed if they got my order right. They said they did! Well, I ate like... More

We went there at 2 o clock. We had a great sunbathe. By the sun falls Restaurants started to set tables across sunset. Nice musics. But really expensive foods. And not tasty. Just watch sunset and eat at another place

We booked a package through our hotel which included a set dinner, and I was disappointed with the quality and portions of food, service, and general atmosphere. I last visited about 18 years ago and it has gone downhill since then. Too crowded, took forever to get there, toilets were god awful. Having 2 small tired children in tow didn't... More

Very fresh seafood although I suspect we definitely overpaid because we weren't sure what we were doing with the ala carte ordering. We ate amazing crab, calamari, red snapper and prawns all selected by me straight out of the tanks. Definitely fresh caught that day. The service was slow but the quality is undeniable. I can't really blame the restaurant... More

Sunset cafe is a slick tourist only dinner destination. Diners are offered free transport to and from the venue. Large numbers of tourists are lured by glossy brochures and promises of exotic dancers and stunning sunsets. The sunsets are free if you eat next door and the Balinese dancing was one attractive young lady who danced for about 5 minutes!... More

As with most places along this coast line, Jimbaran Bay is spectacular. It is a little more formal with table seating on the beach and there were definitely less hawkers than Seminyak beach. The sunsets are spectacular. Take sunglasses as you are facing west. You can also watch the never ending stream of aircraft taking off and landing in the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and they offered free pick up and return. We were seated far at the back of a very large group of diners - easily over 100. There were many other cafes on the beach as well as people watching the sunset on the beach. What a crowd! The best thing about this... More

Only food was ok, view is good but the service sucks, staff are not that friendly Recommended if you only love the view and food but other than that a big no Staff are impatient and sometimes even you called them they try to avoid eye contact so you cannot order from them
