Information before you go
We have definitely become regulars at the Jimbaran Seafood Restaurants. The fish in these restaurants is fresh because it just came out of the sea that very same day.
On top of that, you can sit right in front of the sea shore, watch the sunset while nibbling on a squid-satay.
If you arrive at Jimbaran beach there are many restaurants to choose from. It doesn’t really matter where you sit, as most restaurants offer the same thing: grilled fish by candle light with your toes in the sand.
Sitting front row during sunset...
We always surprise ourselves by choosing a set menu so we can try many types of fish which we otherwise would not have ordered such as crab and lobster.
To be honest, I love crab but I am always too lazy to order it because they are just too hard to open.
But luckily the cooks at these restaurants have cut it in such a way that you will have these little buggers open in no time...
I think the different set menus are definitely the best option for real seafood lovers!
After the sun has set and the moon is shining above the sea, the candles on all the tables are the only things you see around you...
It’s a beautiful sight.
This is what I call dinner by candle-light
If you are staying in the Kuta beach area than it is worth to drive to try these seafood restaurant at least once as this is probably the nearest location where you can sit right on the beach while having dinner.
And if you are staying at a Jimbaran resort you can easily stroll over to the restaurant and enjoy the grilled fish every day!

When I wrote the mail I never really expected a reply. I might have expected a computer generated but never a personally written one. The information you provided is invaluable, thank you so very much. I have been using your website as a bible through Bali. Through your recommendation, I will be heading to Ubud then follow the sightseeing route to the coast of Candidasa.
WOW...what an awesome website. I could only dream that there would be a website like this for all our travel destinations! You guys have done an fabulous job and now, I am sooo excited about our upcoming trip to Bali. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure Bali was the place for us considering some of the travel warnings (we are Americans). But I can tell from your experiences that the Bali people are so very kind and peaceful.
