Service: very passable. Nothing to shout about but definitely far from unpleasant. Food arrived under 15 minutes of order. pleasant view of the ocean and comforting sea breeze. Technique: Food was grilled and taste was above average. Freshness was decent. Cost: $ ordered the cheaper set and total cost was less than 20/net per pax for food and drinks. Overall, value for money. May revisit but personally, would prefer to explore other seafood joints around the Jimbaran locale.

Great place: good food, awesome taste, lively place, amazing view (especially on sunset), good music. Downside, it's full house in the evening (before and after sunset) and on weekend.

One of the cheapest seafood restaurants on the beach. Nice sunset if weather is right. Extremely popular, so try to reserve in advance and show up before 5pm. Order your food and drinks right at the entrance for prompt service. Always ask for extra chilly and coconut oil sauce. The place is an institution, always sold out, so don't expect waiters to fawn over you. New customers will keep coming, whether you enjoyed your meal or not. This often results in lousy service (by western standards).

These two places were a bit more high class. However, you don’t need to always eat this sort of food to have a good dining experience. Sometimes, the simplest settings and food that has been cooked with limited intervention can be among the best you ever eat and this brings me to Menega Cafe in Jimbaran Bay, Bali. This isn’t the first time I’ve been here but it is the first time I’ve reviewed this restaurant. The photos and report comes from my recent trip to Bali (you can find the flight report here and the hotel report here). I made mention of this place in my Bali sightseeing piece – I came here after going to Tanah Lot on the first night and also on my final night in Bali. I’m not entirely sure why it’s called a cafe because it really is a restaurant. I suppose it is because it opens onto the beachfront and restaurant probably (in their minds) sounds less pretentious. Though restaurant is probably the best description. So, what to bear in mind when coming to this restaurant? Well, first thing to realise that this is a really popular restaurant and with views over the sea, the whole beach front is a great place to have dinner. First thing to do is try to get there reasonably early (6 is probably a good time). If you arrive later it might difficult to get a seat out on the beach. If you are ok with sitting indoors (no air con) you can sit there, but there is basically no air flow so you end up with a fog of coconut smoke encompassing you and a) your clothes with smell and b) you might not see your dining companions (though that might not necessarily be a bad thing). Personally I prefer to be on the beach as it’s a bit more open. However as I said it can get really busy especially as you get there between the hours of 7-9pm. Second, you choose your own seafood. Once you have a place to sit, you can abandon it and rush back to the front to select the seafood that you want. You get a choice of whatever has come in that day — just point at what you want and they will take it out and set it aside. They will take either your table number or your name (if you don’t have a table) and send the seafood to be grilled. Don’t worry they gut and scale the fish before it’s sent to be cooked! And no, you can’t ask for it to be medium well – HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! They just put it on a BBQ with burning dried coconut husks that produces a really unique smell and flavour. I do feel for the guys who cook the fish. When the fires are really going it must be almost impossible to see what is going on — let alone trying to work out what is being cooked for who!! Third, don’t worry about the vegetables they’ll serve those as part of the deal. It’s usually kang kong for those who know the local terms; for those who want the English name — morning glory. And for those of you who are interested, the stems are not stiff and I see no effect the next day. This vegetable dish is served spicy (sambal kang kong) as standard, but I think if you ask they will just cook it with garlic so you don’t have to kill yourself with the chilis. Finally, a word of warning. The food can take some time to get to you. Usually you can wait at least half of an hour especially if you arrive during peak time. I had to wait close to an hour for my food the second time I came here. I guess having such a large crowd means that this place serves good food. Though to be fair, all they are doing is barbecuing seafood – which is what all the shops along this area are supposed to be doing.

One rule of thumb: 'if in doubt, go to seafood restaurant that is crowded' holds here. The seafood is super fresh and has reasonable price. Don't order the package, despite cheap price. Those are not live seafood that's why they are cheap. Sit outside to enjoy the beach scenery. Be nice to Pak Wayan because he decides when you can sit outside

The most overrated restaurant. The only good things about is all about place, on the beachside, that's it! Do not come in the dinner time, if you don't want to get crap on your table (yes I mean it, it is crap, not crab). All cold food, very salty crab, unseasoned bawal fish, tiny little "king" prawn, and even the coconut that we ordered was pathetic, only half filled coconut water, looks like they give you some leftover from another customer, or they don't really know how to open coconut and keep all water inside. So yeah..this place was good back then, but by the time they are get more popularity, they reduce the quality. For food lover this is definetely not your place.

Very pricy for live lobster. Frozen lobster has a better price but you'd think they could get fresh ones everyday....the place next door had better food with better service. The one with the blue sign.
