“More for the experience than the food”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Imagine having a table facing out to the sea, sunset at the horizon, the sound of waves beating on the shore, your feet on soft, fine sand and a platter of seafood dinner is served to you under candlelight. This is the Jimbaran dining experience every visitor to Bali should not miss.

There are probably a hundred restaurants along this really long stretch of Jimbaran beach (so don't expect an exclusive, romantic, candlelight dinner). One driver recommended Cuisine, which we called up and offered us free pickup service between the restaurant and our hotel. Reading through tripadvisor, we concluded that all the restaurants here are pretty much the same - average in food quality, but great in dining experience.

Other than the alacarte menu, Cuisine offers three options of set dinner. We had the mid-range set which comes with a small lobster, crab, fish, tiger prawns, clams, satay (all bbq style), vegetables, rice and two beer for less than Rp900k. The seafood is fresh (you can choose them yourselves if you like at the entrance to the restaurant) but the preparation is rather bland.

This is definitely something everyone should try while in Bali but you can probably just go to any restaurant and get the same thing. Just go for the experience.

“Food to be desired”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere was great. The view was nice. But the food was not that great. Many fishes on the menu were not actually offered. Decent price though.

“Very expensive for the small amount we got”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful atmosphere on the beach, live music. Loved the feel of it when we first arrived but the food a major disappointment.
Had set meal for 3 fish over cooked and full of small bones, prawns so over cooked nothing left of them. Such a shame because the setting is truly beautiful. Just go for a drink and the atmosphere. Far better places to eat in the area.

“It was good, not more.”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We want there to experience the seafood on the beach. The place was great and eating with our foot in the sand is always great. The food was good it was worth the 25$ per personne. We had calamary cooked 2 ways, fried and with a balinese sauce, we had shrimps also good, tuna, and I can't remember the rest. I would recommend it. I enjoyed it and we did not have all the BBQ smoke on us since it was cooked in the front. The service was really good.
