what the menu states is not what you get, we felt totally ripped off - beware! don't sit close to the shore dump - it will get you and watch the spirits - its not labelled.

We had a good dinner during sunset there. Tables are on the beach, great view even if it's a bit busy. We had a very decent meal for what we paid. Snapper, mussels, shrimps, squid and we add some fresh tuna. All was delicious, not oily, well cooked, mainly grilled. Some rice, morning glory, and salad with all this. Staff... More

Perfect food (Tuna) from the grill! Good price / quality. And the best place to have a romantic dinner at the beach having a look to the waves coming your direction

The approach to the restaurant is full of character; kitchens on one side of the lane, restaurants and beach on the other. You walk into the reception, you pick out the fish and seafood you want, you choose how it is cooked and in what sauce, you order your drinks, and you go pick a table on the beach. Then... More

Great food, fantastic scenery. Expect this to be one of your more expensive meals in Bali but the view and ambience is worth it. Beware- the toilets are rustic.

The price is affordable, the landscape is awesome, maybe need improvement on the dish recipe. Sometimes me and my couple tasted the recipe is lack of salt or need more ingredients. The shell is delicious, the grilled fish is awesome, the kangkung veggie is great, but the shrimp is lack of ingredients.

Service a little slow at times, but just enjoy the scenery! That is if you haven't got the guys selling toys with flashing lights pitched right in front of you! I wanted a nighttime view of the sea, not some tacky flashing toys! So take care which table you choose. Food was delicious though, although they could do with a... More
