Very poor seafood. We were driven into venue by our driver so we thought let's give it a chance. My daughter had to leave table to order so I didn't see menu. Two dogs and two cats sat beside us the whole time which really made me want to feed them. Restaurant was empty. Plastic bottles lined the foreshore so... More

OK for food especially for Plecing Kangkung. The sauce is very delicious. The seafood is fresh but the taste is average. Most terrible was the singer...they ask us the money when our hand were full with our seafood. One more thing you need to consider if you to eat at sand beach, not at restaurant, is the wave. During full... More

The restaurant has an interesting concept. You pick out the seafood you want (frozen or fresh), and they grill it for you and serve it with rice and some (scant) veggies. You can sit inside, on a veranda, or on the beach. The prices are OK (unless you go wild with the lobster or fresh crab); they actually charge you... More

Our tour driver took us here. We should've learned that you should never trust where tour drivers take you. Do your research beforehand folks and don't trust what the driver says. This place was crazy expensive about $80 for the starting price for the seafood meal. To add insult to injury they are very slow. After an hour of waiting... More

Not a good deal. For the price they charged, it's not meeting the expectation. Not even close. The food came 1 hour after we ordered, what should be a treat after full day trip it became a frustrating dinner for us. Will not come again.

Went for the dinner to Jimbaran - a must-do on your Bali trip. The dinner starts around sunset along with one-stage performances and entertainment that end around 9:00 pm. The performance was nice, the food was awesome, specially the King Prawns.

Our driver took us here without consultation and it was disappointing. Not only did they walk us to the beach table (there are thousands of tables along the beach for all the restaurants) and then tell us we had to walk inside to order (I had to walk in and pick up the menu to bring back to our table)...

Unfortunately, like other similar places on the beach in Jimbaran you will pay a lot for disappointing food. They claim 1.8$ for 100 grams of any fish. However, you are not allowed to get pieces and you have to choose hole fish of 2 KG. Anyways consider 50$ per person minimum. Quality is really poor for the price you pay!... More

I ordered a set menu a (containing 4 prawn+1 crab) for 85.000 (around usd 7) seemed like a good deal. Average food. After the bill came to me it stated 850.000 And they showed me the menu. Guys dont fall in this trap just go and enjoy the sunset. Dont take any food
