My family spends two weeks in Bali every August and Cafe Batu Jimbar is one of our favourite places to dine. There is something for everyone. They use fresh local ingredients and the food tastes "home-made". The ambience is stylish yet casual. The owners have great taste. The staff are friendly of a little slow at times but this is Bali! Great value too. They have theme nights such as salsa and jazz so you may want to check that out before you arrive. The place is always buzzy but we have never been turned away.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Bali - for very many reasons and there is very little to fault if any. The food is excellent and I am addicted to the Nasi Campur - one of the best ever anywhere. They have a good selection of dishes all at quite reasonable prices and their drinks selection especially their fresh, healthy juices is unsurpassed. The setting of this cafe/restaurant is also excellent, very relaxed. You can drop by anytime for a meal or just a cup of coffee and a great place to catch up with friends. I absolutely adore this place and have been there many times. Sitting outside under a tree on a cool or warm night having a wonderful meal and watching the people and traffice go by on Jalan Danau Tamblingan is just a great past time. On Saturday night they have a band playing and the other night they even had Tango dancers. The vibe here is very special, relaxed, clean, friendly but not in your face and a great place to people watch.

Do yourself a favour and have a meal there and just sit there and relax and watch experience life in Sanur on a lazy afternoon or cool evening. I always make it a point to go there each time I am in Bali. Love love love this place muchly.

Batu Jimbar is an elegant eatery. I particularly like the Sunday Market there that opens at 10am. The Gado Gado is fantastic but you sometimes have to wait for it for half an hour.

This cafe/restaurant is situated across the road from Hardy's and along a little. Had breakfast here on a number of occasions. The menu is different from all the others. Some nice little touches. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon served with a couple of slices of freshly baked wholemeal bread, lightly toasted. Homemade "pukkola" muesli with fresh fruit, blueberries, yogurt and honey was one of my favourites. Excellent espresso and Americano. The staff are pleasant and attentive, service is good. On Sunday there's a mini market selling fresh fruit and veg, and a buffet of more local dishes. There's a small deli called The Pantry attached to Batu Jimbar as well. Have a coffee and a pastry and watch the world go by!

Went here after getting tired of the same bfast menu at the hotel, indeed quite far from Seminyak, my bad, worth Rp 80,000 taxi trip.

Took the outdoor seating for the fresh air.

A bit hungry, hence ordered the Nasi Goreng w/ shrimp, skipping the English bfast that was on the menu.

The portion was a bit small, but ample of shrimp. The taste was ok, not a home run.

Might try it again for another breakfast menu.

Ordered the brownie, it's quite good, but liking Warung Made' brownie better.
