“Great food, awesome service”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lia Cafe was such a great choice, esp after trying Menega cafe ( which i thought wasn't great- poor and tardy service, extremely crowded & noisy, dirty/sticky tables, oily sauces, seafood wasn't that great!, perhaps marred by poor service!)

Lia cafe was the exact opposite of our Menega cafe experience.
We were greeted with smiles from Mrs Lia. Ushered to a nice table (which had a nice table cloth), service was prompt and attentive, food came quickly, grilled to perfection. They were very flexible re: package menu- we changed normal prawns to jumbo prawns, got a coconut drink, added on an extra crab.

Fed well. complimentary transport back to our hotel was also organised quickly once the meal finishes

“Great food, fantastic view”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Husband and I went exploring Jimbaran on a Sunday afternoon ride. Arrived at 2pm for a late lunch, pretty much had the place to ourselves. The food was great so much that we could not eat it all even though we wanted to. Service friendly. Just wish we had taken our swimmers and towels. Next time!

“A bit overrated”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

If you have read travel books, I am sure having a sunset seafood dinner in Jimbaran bay is on of the must do things in Bali. Lia Cafe is the most popular and crowded in the Jimbaran bay area. The food quality is OK, but would not say superb. As long as you stay away from lobsters, the price is reasonable. However, do note that the waiting time is unbelievable - almost 1.5 hours before you get your food. As such, if you have small children or limited time, do not come here! Otherwise you will be frustrated and it will ruin your evening. Good thing though is that the shop owners are very polite and hospitable.

“Nice Lunch”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Decided to have lunch at Jimbaran on Friday, my wife and I have dined at the Lia Cafe before and returned as it was good previously, again everything was nice, we selected our seafood, it was cooked perfectly, as it was lunch there was no waiting time with only a few other people at the cafe. Good food and good value.
