Lovely fresh fish from the grill
From big boxes you pick the fish you want and they grill it right away. They serve it with your choice of rice and some sambal and soy sauce. They mixed our order with our neighbour's one but apoligised and corrected right away. We had snapper and prawns, both delicious!

Fresh fish well cooked and cheap
We loved this place, after trying it the first time we kept coming every night. Fish is very good, the staff is super nice and the prices are cheap. Definitely recommended

We asked for tweaks and got fresh grilled fish heaven!
This warung is simple, not beautiful. But you come here for the food, not the decor. I lived in Bali for a few years at the turn of the century and during many return trips. I cook Balinese food at home and when I'm here, and speak Indonesian and understand Balinese. So I am really not interested in burgers and spaghetti and pancakes when I'm in Bali. I want Balinese food. I was ready to leave upon seeing the menu, which had lots of Western dishes with salad and potato. My partner spotted fish pepes - spicy fish steamed or grilled in a banana leaf with spices - on the menu with fish soup, grilled fish, and mixed veg. The veg wasn't Balinese so I asked for pelecing (spicy sauce of grilled tomato, garlic, hot pepper, and shrimp paste) with long beans and wanted to know what fish was fresh. Our host led us to a cooler, where she showed us what she had. We ended up ordering an entire fish grilled with a side of long bean pelecing and sambal matah, a lovely fresh salsa that's good on anything and everything and is authentically Balinese and amazingly delicious. We saw the grill set up, our whole fish brought out gutted and filleted with a rub of fresh garlic, salt and onion slivers and grilled to absolute perfection. The texture was exquisite. The flavor subtle and delicately smokey. Pure grilled fish bliss. We ignored the veg (got it to go). It was good but the fish was sublime. Forget the menu. Go straight to the cooler. Pick out the fish you want and relax with a beer while you wait for a gustatory epiphany.
