Had a table right on the beach. No sun today so no wonderful sunset but still an awesome view of the beach and the boats. This place is well organised, you order drinks at the table then go and pick your live fish at the fish counter, tell them how you want it cooked and go back to your table... More

Echoing the many other negative reviews, avoid this place like the plague! Clearly rigged scales, very poor hygiene standards (cat sitting on seat next to me!), eating from plastic plates and above 5 star hotel prices for average at best food. Far better places available for half the price and much better service. We felt cheated following the hotels recommendation... More

Ganisha restaurant is where we visited but all the places cook the exact same things – fresh seafood with accompaniments such as rice, sambal, soup and the like. You can place your order from the fresh seafood which is the tanks or from yesterdays seafood which are no longer living. We chose the day old seafood as I cant eat... More

We had an amazing night here. We picked our own live seafood and had it cooked to our liking, sat on the beach looking out to the ocean and watched the sunset. Later in the evening, they had a fireworks display and a small trio band serenade individual tables with music and singing. Was an amazing night, great for couples... More

It all starts with selection of the wide variety of seafood on ofder and how you want it prepared..We chose the prawns, snapper and crabs..I must say the grilled snapper was very nicely done..Coated with a generous layer of sambal and grilled..it didnt disappointed..The black pepper crab was equally well done..The black pepper wasnt overpowering.One gripe is that the food...

Our driver recommended this place to visit on the way to the airport before flying to Singapore. We weren't sure at first as the setup was so different. When we walked through the restaurant to the beach area, well what a site. So many tables on the beach and as we looked along the beach there were so many more.... More

My 3rd time to Jimbaran, the best I've tasted. Price is kinda pricey but food is good. We had dinner sitting on the beach with superb sunset. This is definitely a place for you to visit. This place is romantic. However, when it is filled with way too many Chinese tourists, it kinda spoiled the place where they talk and... More

Our pack of 6 and after a very long tour day decided to go for food, and what a surprise, sea food at its best. Our facinacting indonesian driver Mr. Gede decided to give us a well deserved meal after our long 10 hours tour. It worth all the wait. You can pick your choices of crab, lobster or red... More

The seafood platter is spectacular. My family just enjoyed the wide variety of fish served on the beach with great views of the airport and city lights. Don't miss this place.
