My friends and i, 7 of us having a hard time to decide on which restaurant to eat and finally decided to eat here. I would say its awesome,the sambal was tasty but the sambal wasnt hot enough for us. We are Malaysian and do eat spicy food. We aren't' disappointed, understood that they have to cater to others as well. I feel that the spices are enough, not to salty nor tasteless. Ordered Prawns, Fish, Crab & squid. Only the fish was slighty below par from our expectations.

Good sea food restaurant
Bendesa Cafe is also called Jimbaran Bay Cafe even if is actually a restaurant but many of the restaurants here is called cafe. It is one out of many sea food restarants on the beach of Jimbaran but to a resonable price. Do check the prices before you enter a restaurant it will vary a lot. They were very nice and did serve an excellent grilled King fish to a resonable price. Like many other restaurants they did miss that we did need more beer but came quick when we did ask for it. Perfect location for a sunset dinner.

To say "average" is being far too generous...
When holidaying in coastal Bali, especially around Denpasar, one HAS to eat alfresco on the beach, watching the sun set. For our first night's meal, da WanderingWabbits sat down to enjoy this experience at NEW BENDESA, Jimbaran Beach. We LUV seafood so, having watched the fishermen land their catches that morning, we ordered the set meal of fish, clams, calamari, prawns and rice. Unfortunately, the sunset was the best part of our evening - to say the food was "average" is being VERY kind. The fish (supposedly the 'hero' of the table) was overcooked and dry, and could not be salvaged by use of the dipping sauces - likewise the butterflied prawns, while the calamari was stock-standard and chewy. Smoke from nearby beach rubbish fires drifted across the tables all evening, and staff were less than friendly. We definitely do NOT recommend NEW BENDESA, Jimbaran.
