Lovely place with an excellent view and great food. You order the fish fresh and it is prepared for you as you wait: prawns, squid, red and white snapper, the choice is yours. For starters we had the spring rolls, light and crunchy as should be...a d served with a sweet and sour sauce. Some of the prawns were hard... More

Visited this Cafe a couple of times. They serve drinks, food ice cream and also delicious cakes. The Carrot cake is the best. Tables and chairs are on the beach under shade. Great place to stop and relax a little as you walk along the path next to the beach.

I eat here each trip to Sanur and was disappointed this time. Food was still good and I had my $5 steak... now $6.50, service was good, sun lounges were good, but.... the beer is warm and they don't sell Radler for the wife! The beer used to come with a frosty mug, now just a warm bottle, they will... More

We only ever have the grilled fish which they do well with a good size salad and chips. Select your own fish and make sure the eyes are still nice and full.. not sunken. Like most locally owned seafood places they hang onto old stock far too long. If the display fish don't look fresh ask for fish from storage.... More

Not sure what all the fuss is about but we were the only people there the night we dined. Service was good but then again we were the only people there. I thought the food was very average and not that cheap. Had the grilled prawns which were ok, others had the squid which was chewy, etc. Would not go... More

This place has been an expat secret for years but the message is starting to get out. It is simply great local food at an amazingly cheap... More

Seafood here is as good as you will get anywhere in Bali. Runs rings around Jimbaran Bay but does not quite have the ambiance, but is half the price
