Frozen not Fresh
Heard friends were taken ill following a previous visit (yes, we're game), but we had no issues at all. Unlike other reviewers, we proactively asked to be taken to JBS Seafood - not a part of a paid tour. It wasn't the busiest compared to a few other restaurants along the same beach and was lovely. Unfortunately, we weren't able to see the beautiful sunset on the afternoon/evening we visited due to cloud-cover, but it definitely didn't take away from the lovely experience. It didn't have fresh seafood as what we first thought, rather frozen, but the view, the 'romantic' dinner on the beach, was well worth the IDR$550,000 we paid for two.

On the beach dinner.
We were brought there by the guide. The setting was good and it was supposed to be BBQ dinner. But the whole meal was cold, prawns were not fresh, fish was flat taste, squid was rubbery since it was not freshly BBQ. Then there were the performers who came to sing at our table which we felt obliged to give them some Rp. I absolutely dislike this situations where I did not ask for the performers to sing at our table but was "forced" to pay them. Do not bother to come, go somewhere else.

Like many reviewers before me, this was a visit imposed upon myself and my family by our driver. He suggested we watch the sunset from Jimbaran bay and before we knew it, we were booked into this place for dinner! With my young son and I being the only seafood eaters in our family, the seafood banquet or whole fish by weight was too much for us to devour so we ended up having to eat chicken; my Son’s in the form of a weird chicken nugget on a $12 ‘hotdog’. Avoid.
