Admittedly we only had breakfast here but considering we had an Indonesian breakfast it was not great. Nasi Goreng was too oily and not much flavour or spice. My husband's Bubur Ayam looked boring as a start and was again very bland. Yes there is a reasonably nice view but there are many great seaside views in Candidasa with much... More

We had a very nice lunch and a dinner here. The view over the ocean is much better during the day as it is very black at night. They offer a pickup/drop off service to local hotels.

We ordered a mixture of club sandwiches, burgers and soup and all of the meals were good. The service is very good with very attentive and helpful staff. We also had a quick look at the rooms and found... More

We enjoyed our lunch here, the service was friendly, food was hot, arrived quickly and it was delisious. If your looking for an out of the way quiet lunch place, don't drive by this spot. And don't forget the view with the sounds of the ocean lapping the shore.

Had lovely beef in peanut sauce here. Melt in your mouth meat and a great sauce! Girlfriend had some squid which was very tasty, but nowhere near as good! Nice chilled atmosphere, fair prices and a good view.. What more do you want!

Good satay, friendly service & fabulous spicy ginger tea that we came back for twice. Looks like this is also part of a cute hotel & dive operation.

Had a great sunset dinner here, amazing views and the food was wonderful. We had a fabulous light show above padang-bai as we ate thanks to a big storm in the distance. Pricing was very pleasant when it came time to pay the bill too. The breeze from being so close to the ocean really made the night great as... More

We wanted spot on water to get breezes, was great overlooking water. Service was good and I was craving meat and veges- was good. Extensive menu but wouldn't go as far as excellent with all of our dishes. Beer was cold though. Central Candi dasa so easy to get to and parking out front.
