“Rikki's - great atmosphere but food????”

Rikki's Amphitheatre on the Beach
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Lovina's sunset is something to celebrate.Rikki's beach bistro at Lilin Lovina Beach Hotel is just the place to end your day and start your evening. In the tradition of great sunset gatherings like the Spanish Steps in Rome or the pier at Key West, inspired music is the magnet that brings everyone together. Friends and families can gather for live music from 6 to 7 every night at Rikki's seaside amphitheater. You might find the music romantic, maybe sentimental, definitely uplifting and mostly the kind of music that is the backdrop for people making heartfelt connections and memories by the sea. Rikki's is more than the view, more than the music. It is a place you will want to linger at the dimming of the day. Intimate and Fire-Lit. You'll sit close to the sea, close to the sand, and find yourself closer to those you love.

Had dinner at Rikki's and it was a bit of a hit and miss affair. The setting and the music was fine but the food did not live up to expectations. Their platters of food representing different cuisines sounded yummy but some of the combinations were just weird and tasted a bit strange!!! It was also very dark so we had trouble seeing what we were eating! On the plus side the cocktails were interesting and delicious. Perhaps go at sunset for a drink and give the food a miss?

At 18.00 be there, take a drink, enjoy the music, look at the sunset and stay for dinner. You'll not regret this.

I'm told staying at the Lilin is fantastic, but the new Rikki's Ampitheatre on the Beach is well worth a visit for the music and great food too. At 6pm every night the owners - Bryan and Rikki - perform with a live band, against a spectacular backdrop of sunset over the Bali Sea. The music is soft and soothing, the waves provide a gentle rhythm, and the food is stand out excellent and different. You get to choose a basket of foods from different parts of the world - delicious. I can thoroughly recommend the desert of macaroons and chocolate dipping sauce. Yumm. Rikki's Ampitheatre on the Beach is a unique additional experience for Lovina and one that captures, for me, the original, authentic Bali spirit that unfortunately has become harder to find these days. I've become a regular because it's just unique. Check it out.

Thanks to Tripadvisor and two young bracelets-selling girls on the beach we found Rikkis on the Beach. Moroco-meets-Bali beach side bistro and theatre at Lilin Lovina Beach Hotel just outside Lovina Centre at Kaliasem. The circular path of bamboo sticks leads past tranquil-contemporary design seaside-facing bungalows with private plunge pool and hammock to the restaurant-and-amphitheatre dressed with scatter cushions and low tables, wicker stools and bamboo chairs with tables. Heather/Rikki’s versatile voice reminding of Joan Baez, partner Bryan and the two Komans provide mellow music to match the magical sunset. Dinner is a feast of flavours delightfully presented as offering on a tray, much like the ones you see carried daily by Balinese on their way to temple. A must see-eat-enjoy for anyone visiting Lovina.

After a busy day travelling in the mountains our fabulous driver Marcos (please ask Rikki for his details) suggested we treat ourselves to dinner and live music. Well, everything Lilin Lovina Beach Hotel had to offer us, ambiance, food, cocktails and entertainment totally exceeded our expectations. The stylish attention to detail, respect for the natural environment and friendly staff and hosts had us feeling very happy and relaxed, then the music started and this took the experience to magical! Just beautiful, the sound quality and musicianship is one of the best we had encountered in Bali, so we came back the next night for an equally wonderful time. Rikki and her husband are doing something quite unique that will only enhance your Bali holiday, we highly recommend checking them out. All the best Tasha and Shannon. (NZ)
