Our driver chose this restaurant, claiming that it was one of the best ! The quality of the food was OK, but overpriced, more than likely due to its prime beachfront location. Avoid falling into the trap.

Very expensive dinner of cold seafood that should have been warm, not worth the effort to go , tourist trap of the worst kind, Bali can offer much much better food.

As soon as we step out of the cab, we were pretty much pushed into the restaurant, as I turn I saw... More

I don't believe there is much difference among those seafood restaurants: grilled seafood, beach settings, Bali dances (surely can't compete with the real good ones), overpriced. So if the price is affordable to you and you want the experience of enjoying seafood on beach, just pick up one or ask your driver to pick one (my did this for my... More

Jimbaran Bay at sunset is the standout highlight but that is available to everyone ... pick your restaurant carefully here and try to get a local to recommend. Unfortunately we didn't do either and as a result had to endure bland food and grumpy service with Jukung Bali Seafood...

This is a great place to watch the sun set. The restaurant is one of a string of many along the beach and together they create a really festive atmosphere. We opted for the "Ketut" lobster menu that came with prawns, clams, a split lobster, crab, and a whole fish. I agree with the other post that they use little... More

Now called jukung seafood The food is very pricey and bland. If you into spicy food don't bother wasting time. The live sea food is really pricey. Just another tourist trap. They say halaal but serve alcohol in premises as well

Love the lobster & the crab. It was well cooked and was very tender and delicious. It was really affordable. Sadly it was raining so we did not get to see the sunset, but we still enjoyed our dinner there. There was live entertainment during our dinner as well. Highly recommended especially for seafood lovers.

This place was like a cess pool! It was dirty, smelly, floor was disgusting with slime and grime all over it. It's a load then in, fill them up, tourist trap. It was also loud and over crowded. We walked in a turned right out. Don't go. It's putrid!
