You either love them or hate them! The food most of the time is very much similar and so is the views! You get the airport on with the view of landing aircraft over the ocean on one side and the ocean on the other! It looks amazing at night time and the food isn't 5 star but this is mostly grilled bbq seafood! You can pick live or frozen lobsters, or prawns or fish from the tanks upfront and they will be served to your table. The view is amazing and the atmosphere is as great and it is a must do atleast once if your in Bali! Whether you return or not depends on how much you love it i guess ( or hate it!).

Ok, if you want to be processed in a tourist-seafood-trap factory line then this is where you go for the experience. You pick your 'fresh' fish, crab, prawn...etc. from slick salesmen who are alway trying to upsell you something you dont want, sit at table strewn on the beach in whatever haphazard way demand entails. you will dine mostly lopsided to the slant of the beach. Food is not delicious. Just edible. So if you really have to eat on the beach and dont want to slurge at a hotel - this stretch of seafood places on Jimbaran will work.

Hotel Conceirge recommendation. Terrific dinner right on the beach. Make sure to take a sweater or wrap, beach breeze chilly for children. Candlelit dinner on beach with great grilled seafood. Prawns, red snapper and lobster grilled with chili, garlic and butter. Sunset would be beautiful but we were a little late. Meal comes with vegetable sides (not great) but street cart on beach sells fresh roasted corn. (Fabulous) The lobster was expensive but well worth it. Red Snapper really good even though I'm not much of a fish eater. Prawns the best! Choose this place.

The sunset on the beach was stunning & worth the over-priced & pretty ordinary cooking. Service is very friendly but slow. You have to choose your raw seafood & whether you want it grilled, steamed or fried. Perhaps our choice of grilled red snapper & prawns wasn't a good one but we found the food over-cooked, dry & lacking much flavour.
A plus is that they provide "free" transport from & to your hotel.

Yes, I needed to look at tripadvisor first! Brought by my driver (which got free food), I was almost happy until I saw a bill. They overpriced, added, cheated! No soup or fruit as their website states, by the way. So, please be smarter and choose carefully if go to Jimbaran beach cafes.
