Description: Lovina's sunset is something to celebrate.Rikki's beach bistro at Lilin Lovina Beach Hotel is just the place to end your day and start your evening. In the tradition of great sunset gatherings like the Spanish Steps in Rome or the pier at Key West, inspired music is the magnet that brings everyone together. You might find the music romantic, maybe sentimental, definitely uplifting and mostly the kind of music that is the backdrop for people making heartfelt connections and memories by the sea. At Rikki's, food is a cultural experience, sampling traditions from around the world. Something Latin, Something French, Something American in a pinch. Drinks? That's where it gets really interesting. In a perfect world, nobody travels thousands of miles to a distant shore and orders something they can drink at home. Alcoholic or Nada-holic, the drinks at Rikki's have been crafted, something like potions. They use funky combinations of local brews, fruits, even a vegetable here and there, to channel the exotic, fresh, lightness and beauty of Bali into a glass vessel. Coconut water meets Sangria. Rice Wine meets Tonic. They might have odd names but you'll find them just right, adventuring sip by sip. Rikki's is more than the view, more than the music. It is a place you will want to linger at the dimming of the day. Intimate and Fire-Lit. You'll sit close to the sea, close to the sand, and find yourself closer to those you love.

Had an amazing evening, we didn't know much about Lovina and the lovely owners told us the most amazing places to visit as well as tell us all the other information that we wanted to know! Me and my boyfriend had an amazing evening and really appreciated everything they helped us with, the food was lovely and the atmosphere was great.

Great food. Completely different from other restaurants on the Island. The perfect break if you want something else then the Indonesian food you get everywhere. It is more expensive but definitely worth it.

Thank you so much to Rikki and her husband, band and restaurant team for such a wonderful night. The food was just to do for, and the music and atmosphere were just stunning. It was our last night in Lovina and it topped off a wonderful stay on a high note. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be going back on our next trip.

Was imagining how the place looks like, from the review of other people. Unique setting. Great place to have drinks while sunset time. Beautiful live music to listen during the sun goes down..over all good atmosphere!

But when the waitres came with the menu, a bit confused how to choose. They only have 4 different choices of set menu and when the foods came..me and my friends little bit disappointed. The set menu only looks like tapas (small bite) and the taste also not what we expected..it's a pity, they could make it better for this beautiful spot

Lovina has for a long time struck me as a place without much soul (when it comes to having a night out). This time back we found Rikki's through all the great reviews on Tripadvisor and checked it out for our selves.

Cocktails were great and original. Food was just awesome. I love how they have a small choice and make it all easy for you to choose. My GF and I shared the Latino plate and were so delighted by all the small dishes that made up the meal. We also had the bread and humus small dish which was quite good.

Rik and his wife who own and run the place were a pleasure to listen to play. They have set up a beautiful little amphitheater on the beach and as the sun sets and the guests sit down to eat and drink, they play some wonderful heart filled music. They are truly a great duo to listen to.

Will be back next time!
