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).

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.

The seafood is fresh and good, however, if you're on a budget, do not order the lobsters as they can cost quite a bit. They use coconut husks instead of charcoal to bbq your food thus a very unique taste! Order the bbq corn by the beach bike kiosk while waiting for your food! Really good! Do make reservations before going or else you have to wait for 30-60 mins for a table or even longer if you're a large group!

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.

Great place. We went before 5 pm and ate the two person banquet. Good service and nice view. Food came out in great time and it was amazing! Brought my partner here who doesn't eat seafood often and even he enjoyed it. Left just in time before all the people came. Thank you.

A must visit whenever we are in Bali, serves reasonably priced and delicious Barbecue seafood. Must try: Barbecue clam, absolutely delicious. Tips: ask for table on the beach but you must come early like 5pm or late like 9pm otherwise those tables are usually booked by tour groups
