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

The food is absolutely not good and I personally doubts that the sea food is fresh. It was bad experience. The place is nice but the food is terrible.

The seafood was super expensive and it was not even good. We just went there because it was always a recommendation, so why not, and we were hungry, and we went there around 8pm. Maybe it was better to go there in the afternoon, and watch the sunset. The performers were good but yeah we have to tip them for... More

You need a really good sense of humour to enjoy this. We fell into a tourist trap when we should hv known better. Highly overpriced with tiny portions. We took the package and had assumed the size of the prawns and squids were similar to what was displayed but those were obviously for the ala carte orders and the smaller... More
