Where to Eat in Jimbaran: The Best Restaurants and Bars

March 11, 2018 Brain Ambrose

White-sand beaches set the scene for a romantic tete à tete in Jimbaran, a quaint fishing village in Bali, Indonesia. Luxury hotels mingle with simple seafood shacks on the waterfront. Feed your paramour succulent chunks of freshly-prepared fish, then amble along the beach under the Indonesian moonlight before retiring to your five-star accommodations for the night... and the next morning.

It seems at one time this restaurant must have been very good but no longer. The table service was good but the food took FOREVER to arrive. And what I couldn't understand is that they were not busy, one 6 customers including us.

Stunning setting - a view you never tire of across the koi pond, frangipanis and ocean to Gunung Agung in the distance. A perfectly designed menu with something for everyone, cooked perfectly presented exquisitely. Particular mention to the staff, every single one so genuinely friendly and polite. And especially Ika.

Sundara

The Sanskrit word for "beautiful", Sundara pays tribute to the glowing sun that warms Bali's hottest beachfront restaurant and bar. Enjoy a casual lunch of light, shareable cuisine ideal for soaking up the salt-air and panoramic views. Lounge away the afternoon on an ocean-front bale, sun-splashed daybed or table on the open Terrace overlooking the 57-meter infinity edge pool, just steps above the surf. For dinner, Sundara transforms into one of Bali's most sophisticated dining experiences, with a Modern Asian-inspired menu that can be served as individual portions or for sharing with a companion or group. After dark, the beachside ambience becomes candlelit and sexy with the island's most tantric avant-garde cocktails.

Sundara is an amazing spot on Jimbaran Bay at the Four Seasons. You can easily come here to spend an entire day and stay for the sunset. The food and drinks are amazing and there is a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the bay. I highly recommend for a lovely afternoon spent at the Four Seasons

Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and he absolutely loved it! The dishes here were so innovative, refreshing and had so much depth and complexity of flavours that swept us off our feet. Even the service was top-notch sincere and first-class (Thank you Wulan, the waitress who served us the most) which made our experience even more perfect than it already was. This restaurant is the first 5-stars for a Bali review and I am delighted about that. I would dare say this is the best restaurant in Bali (this puts Metis or Merah Putih to shame hahaha oops) and is A MUST VISIT. Although they forgot about my secret birthday cake for my bf which I later had to remind them - everything about this dinner experience was magical and unforgettable. I would definitely be back again.

This is where buffet breakfast and all day dining is served at Rimba Jimbaran Bali by Ayana. The selection is massive, top of the line and the staff makes you feel like family. They never fail to make you feel warm and comfortable. The food is great.. fantastic even but the service.. its incomparable. Everyone just wears a smile and are super friendly... just warms the heart. They also have a Koi pond around the restaurant and the staff can provide fish food so you can feed the fish after your meal. Such a lovely surprise.

The Open House Restaurant

The Open House restaurant serves Indonesian/Asian cuisine with some Mediterranean favorites in a friendly cozy ambience with a well thought background music. The building structure, overlooking the swimming pool and the main street, 20 meters to the beach, is of bamboo and "alang-alang" thatched roof, and the tables and chairs are made of recycle wood and iron. The open kitchen team is managed by Putu, the executive chef, and a group of young and passionate chefs delivering top fresh quality food at affordable price. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you to this Balinese experience in the middle of Jimbaran bay, within minutes walk from all the major hotels located in Jimbaran bay.

I was here with a group of friends, party of 5. We all ordered at the same time but the food arrived very late for two of us. Both of them had ordered cold food (salads) so really not any reason why it would take 45 min to get it ready.
The waitress ambitiously walked through the menu which had lots of dishes I would want to go back and order. I had the barramundi and was very happy with my food (4/5) Others were not equally pleased and had a rating of 2-3/5. The restaurant was very kind to not charge for a salad that my friend never finished due to it having ingredients not listed.
A 2 is probably on the harsh side but service and lack of timeliness really ruined the meal.

We had dinner here and were so excited to have tapas.
Unfortunately this is not true tapas and if you love your tapas you're going to be disappointed in the food.
On a positive note the staff are wonderful and it is a very attractive restaurant but it is the food I'm after not the decor.
It is also very expensive for what it is.
