Jimbaran beach is carpeted with a myriad of seafood restaurants, many of which look every bit a dodgy as the area's reputation suggests.
Having visited Menega on our first pass a few evenings ago, we decided to stroll along the array of restaurants and see if any took our fancy. Lei Lei was by far the cleanest appearing of those we past, and the seafood was very fresh <if not still alive and kicking>.
Menus were presented quickly and orders placed by 9:00. Drinks delivered and food took not more than 30 mins to arrive. A beautiful 1kg Red Snapper was filleted and grilled perfectly to our taste, accompanied by 2kg of Tiger Prawns grilled and bathed in a garlic butter sauce. Calamari was disappointing, but you can't win 'em all.
Including beers and other drinks bill totalled IDR620k, which for four adults we thought was pretty good for more seafood than we could [should have] consumed.
Menega seems to have far more people, but for my money Lei Lei is the best value.
