Location Lifts Rating
BEACH FRONT POSITION PLUS EXTRA TABLES ON SAND BOOST THIS PLACE FROM THE BALI AVERAGE (and the Bali average is pretty good). The typical Sanur restaurant features good food and service at reasonable prices. MATAHARI at INNA SINDHU has these PLUS the location bonus outlined above. This restaurant-bar is adjacent the busy SANUR BEACH PATH allowing diners/drinkers to check passers-by and goings on out on the sand/in the lagoon. Impressive NUSA PENINDA** looms offshore. Sometimes north-east Bali’s volcanic peak AGUNG emerges from the clouds – no evidence July 2018 of recent eruptions. Those beach dining tables across the path are sun-protected by umbrellas/pergolas. Kinda romantic having dinner on the sand. Menu choice is wide, several dishes meeting my budget travel standard. I found preparation/taste okay but I’m no gourmet. Portion size good. Service excellent – MATAHARI has many hospitality trainees who are eager to please and closely supervised by full timers. Another PLUS: the small bar area right next to the busy path with good people watching and cool music had some of the cheapest beer all trip including many bottom budget places. TIPS – the restaurant has a comprehensive breakfast buffet inclusive for INNA SINDHU HOTEL** guests. Quality pretty good but I’ve had better in similar Bali places. I was remiss in not asking price for outsiders. - closer the water than beach tables are daytime sunlounge/umbrellas where customers can take meals/snacks/drinks. A good area to spend time. - hotel guests can charge bill to their accounts; pay with plastic on check-out. **TRIPADVISOR has review pages.

Much better away from market lane
Food OK.. drinks limited. Location and view of beach/Ocean excellent.. service very slow.. But the constant pestering by market lady’s to “ look in my shop” drives you to the point of justified homicide... Staff turn a blind eye to the harassment of diners by these people.. .I suggest not to dine within 200 meters of the market north or south..

Better than expected ...
We stayed in the Inna Sindhur hotel so enjoyed room service one night from this restaurant. The pizza was by far the best that we had in Sanur....the other food was tasty and well presented. This restaurant seems quiet at night but don't let that put you off, The food quality is great. Breakfast was delicious, especially the Indonesian options....Nasi Goreng for breakfast is a winner!
