Good food, not good service
We loved the fresh seafood--lobster and prawns--but the drinks were sugary and weak and the service was less than ideal...great location but left feeling like just another customer. The good part was free shuttle to and from the hotel. Delicious and fresh food but that is all.

Casual seafood on the beach but a little pricey for what was delivered and lack of any finesse
Arrived by taxi at New Moon Cafe, did not walk the strip with some 17+ seafood restaurants and bars to check out offerings - perhaps we should have done. Taken to a table on the beach close to the sea. Quite pleasant hearing and seeing the surf, the aeroplanes landing and taking off in the distance - Denpasar is a busy airport at certain times! Bands playing music up and down the beach - some louder than others! Good atmosphere with families. We elected to have lobster, king sea prawn and squid. I went and selected the product from the bins in the main building of the cafe. All very fresh. Basically the lobster and prawns were grilled and put on a plate, and the squid was cut and crumbed then deep fried and put on a plate. All were good tasting and not chewy. A salad and rice accompanied. Dessert was fresh fruit. All ok, but pricey and with zip finesse. The service was ok, but the lady taking the orders was positively aggressive. We went to the beach restaurants many years ago and they were great - small individual cafes privately operated and serving how one would expect on the beach. The restaurants and cafes have now been developed into proper buildings and are cheek by jowl, but the presentation and facilities have not changed much. Would I go back ? I would probably do more research before contemplating a return, but the atmosphere was good sitting on a beach enjoying food with many people around, and good for families. The cost I thought was somewhat pricey some of which was tax and service at 21%, including a bottle of wine, and of course lobster IDR 2,567,000

A pleasant experience
I had no clue about them before bumping into this restaurant, as it was recommended by my driver. Order only two mains: shrimps on chilly souse and grilled red snapper, which tasted really good. Price wise, I found it a little over priced. The wait time was some 30 minutes but as the ambiance is really nice, you will not mind waiting for long.
