Description: Scallywags restaurant has become a favorite for locals and tourist alike. Food is shipped in daily, with organic greens from Bali. The beautiful island location and the freshest food on the island makes it a great place for breakfast, lunch, sunset, dinner and party nights. Scallywags is the original and the best place to enjoy our nightly BBQ, starting at 6pm. Guests can choose from a large range of sashimi grade fish and Australian imported steaks, to name a few. A complimentary salad bar is included for all BBQ items. Not hungry? Our trained bartenders can whip you up an amazing refreshing cocktail for you to enjoy while soaking up the views over the ocean.

“Good seafood but not so fresh”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Most of the seafood on the island is frozen, so just be careful. Scallywags seems to have the best choice (lobster, squid, prawn etc...) and seems to be the cleanest. It;s busy in the evenings so arrive early or be prepared to wait for a table. You order your fish at the counter and then help yourself at the salad bar. Reasonably priced too. We went here on our first night, the following days when we walked past the restaurant we had to hold our breaths because it smelt so bad so I'm not sure we would have eaten here if we'd known that before.

“Will come again”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Nice looking place with a relaxed vibe. Staff are a little slow even in low season. But if your in a rush don't go on holiday.
The sea breeze is nice and you have a few different areas to sit.
The food is good not the best I've eaten but for a remote island you can't complain.
Over all I will eat here again.
