Matahari is bit worn out dive resort but their restaurant has 180 degree sea views in two floors. Menu has some western and some Indonesian dishes. Food was bit mixed. I liked their chili chicken but then we also had big shrimps which we decided not to eat (taste was odd). Service was uninspiring - straight-faced waiter took our orders... More

Not possible to sit closer to the beach and have lunch. We went for a day trip and the lunch was really good and the staff very friendly

We have been in Matahari Tulamben Villa and had pick up to the Restaurant in the evening and later drop back to the Villa. The food was great. We tried several meals. The thai food is great as well as the german potato salad. And the best ist the location. Direct at the beach.

Was here for my honeymoon and it was really great. Nice decoration for our room, amazing view from the Restaurant with totally tasty food. The dives were relaxed and with experienced guides. But the best was our honeymoon package in SPA. Will come again. Sure.

Still great food and most of all, when you want something thats not on the menu, just ask and they will serve it for you. Clean food, good food and the pindasauce is the best in the world!

Only fried rice and grilled fish are acceptable, the others are bad than expected. Bottle water is costly, better buy from the convenient store outside. Pancake is hell

We are a Restaurant and not a Warung. In Bali it is not common in Restaurants to serve water for free. You can not enjoy our nice ocean view with own drinks. We run a business which pays government tax and staff. Therefore not possible to bring drinks from outside. We hope for your understanding..... That you didnt like our... More

This is definitely best local dinner/food I had throughout my 2 weeks stay in Bali and Lombok. We ordered 3 serving to try and all 3 dished did not disappoint me. We sat on the first floor and it has a great view of the sea and moon rising.

The best thing about this restaurant is the views, either from downstairs or better still upstairs. However if you're looking for exciting Balinese or Indonesian food this is not the place. The food is not bad, but is not exciting either. If you have visited Kuta or Seminyak and sampled the restaurants there you'll know what I mean. The staff... More

The food was nothing special. Nice view though. We chose for the spring rolls and nasi goreng but i would not recommend it. There was so much garlic.

Very sorry that you dont like garlic. Our nasi goreng is popular and normally the people love it..... So what can we do when you didnt mention that you dont like garlic.... We try hard to satisfy our guests and we love to get feedback direct. So we would have a chance to make guests happy... More
