“Delicious food”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

All family member loves the food since they provide variety of sauce. I take taxi from Santosa beach and resort hotel, and ask the driver to wait, I think that's the best option rather than wait for new one after meal.

“Truly local seafood dining”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by a local as my friends and I were sick of 'Tourist Traps' that charge ridiculous prices for sub-standard food.

The menu here has a set option in addition to the typical spread of seafood choices (King prawns, lobsters, variety of fish, squid, etc). We chose the set option as it allows us to try a variety of seafood without paying too much.

There're 3 set options; A, B and C. All 3 come with King prawns, calamari, clams, fish, sambal kangkong (veggie dish), a fresh fruit juice and a choice of either fries or rice. I believe Option C has an additional lobster. Option A (90, 000 Rp) and Option B (100, 000 Rp) differs slightly in the quantity of the choices.

The food was nice, nothing fantastic but value for money. If the sambal kangkong is too spicy for you, you can simply order another fresh fruit juice for 10, 000 Rp (which is much lower than the 15, 0000 to 30, 000 Rp that other places charge).

A point to note is that the orange juice here appears to be made from syrup (?). The best juice was the pineapple; sweet, freshly squeezed and icy cold without large chunks of ice.

The restaurant does see it's fair share of tourists, but because it's further away from the main Senggigi area, has more locals and charges are more reasonable sum for a nice filling meal.

One tip for late night travellers - you can hire a Bluebird Taxi and tell the driver to wait for you while you eat as few taxis drive pass the area due to it being away from the main Senggigi area. An hour wait only costs you 18, 000 - 20, 000 Rp (~USD$2) and you get to eat without worrying about transportation back to your hotel.

“Great seafood Good price”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We visited the Warung at about roughly 9pm, although we had beat the crowds we were lucky to have some seafood left. We purchased 1kg of prawns, 2 white snappers & 1 squid which is more then enough to feed 5 people. The quality & taste of the seafood was great! The service was good here also, i would recommend this place for all seafood lovers.

“nice view with the great barbecue shrimps.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

they have a delicious sambal matah, yummi grilled shrimps, and big lobsters, all are recomended, but i think they should improve the servant's friendliness, may be by adding a little nice smile to the customer, especially the domestic one as me.

“Fresh fish and seafood on the beach, perfect”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Fish and prawns fresh (still wriggling) . Perfectly cooked on coconut husk BBQ with water spainach , rice and fresh sambal. Anyone who doesn't like this is nuts. Service was a bit variable and the cumin-cumi (squid) was a bit chewy but all in all a great evening. And so cheap!!
