One enter in the restaurant, choose the fish to be cooked on the grill and sit on the table. The tables are on the beach, between the restaurant and the sea. The fish was really fresh and very good cooked. We enjoyed red snapper, squids and prawns side dishes rise and vegetables. Tables are really simple, camping style and the... More

Excellent experience, choose your seafood, sadly it was very windy, food was good a bit pricey. Service was ok, I think they didn't want to bring our fruit platter which was included in our meal....

Our driver dropped us off at Ganesha Cafe before I had the chance to review restaurants around Jimbaran. It located right on the beach. It was pretty as you look out to the sea. After ordering our drinks, I read some alarming reviews that the scale was ragged . All the seafood dishes were sold by kilogram. Having been warned... More

If you want a special dinner while in Bali, go to the Ganesha Cafe. The cafe is located on Kedonganan Beach. They have numerous tables right on the beach just feet from the surf. Great view of the coast and the sea. Additionally, you get to select the fish you will eat for dinner right out of a live tank.... More

My wife and I are seasoned travelers and can usually spot one these tourist trap restaurants a mile away but every great once in a while we get stung! This is that restaurant! AVOID THIS PLACE!! You will save money and time! We were recommended this place by our driver who I explicitly told to not take us to a... More

You should only go here for the gorgeous sunsets because the food is not worth it. The customer service is appalling, the food is overpriced and they rip off tourists who pick and choose their seafood. The cocktail I had was awful too so my suggestion would be to buy a Diet Coke and enjoy the view and find somewhere... More

Food was good, view of beach was amazing, price a bit high but what ruined this experience was the cat that was in the restaurant begging for food and jumped up on our table.

I don't want to admit it but we fell into this disgusting restaurant because of our driver who gets hefty commission through their "magic" weighing scale. They use a heavy bowl to measure the seafood in and there is probably something inside the bowl to make it heavier. You'll probably going to only get half of what you actually paid... More

We were unfortunately dropped off here by a driver from our hotel who was obviously being paid a commission to bring unsuspecting people here. The street out front was packed with huge buses full of Chinese tourists, vehicles at a standstill due to the overwhelming amount of traffic on a road made for a single lane of vehicles, but with...

We had finished our shopping and needed lunch. Our Guide from Abracadabra Tours, Komang suggested the Ganesha Cafe. I wasn't keen on choosing live seafood from the tanks, but iced fresh seafood was available. We then chose to grill our choices and added the favoured chips and Bintang. All food came hot from the kitchen. The meal came with rice... More
