“View to die for”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Unbelievable view and high quality fresh seafood at a much better price than similar in Australia. Dress casual as it is warm here and ask for a view on the edge of the cliff

“Kisik is amazing”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Staying at Rimba Jimbaran for our 20th wedding anniversary and wanted a memorable dinner. Looked at several options and Kisik was on the list until we went yesterday afternoon to take a look. Sandy was the young man working at the Ayana ocean pool and he could not have been more helpful. Sandy ran over and grabbed a menu then explained how their "seafood market theme" worked and he booked our table for us. Sandy asked if special occasion and we told him, so he said he'd try to get us a nice table.

That night, we were sat at the front corner on the edge of the cliff, prime seating. Great view of the Rock Bar and also the pier, where we walked a guy get down on his knee and purpose to his girlfriend.

The food was so fresh and fantastic. You walk up and staff explain what there is, you pick what you and they offer to cook it various ways. My wife chose the swordfish steak and I had the red snapper, both grilled with garlic butter. Both cooking and flavours were brilliantly done. Gado Gado salad and seafood soup are included in meal and both great.

If you want a really memorable night and beautifully prepared seafood with beautiful & friendly staff, go straight to Kisik restaurant.

“Fantastic Scenery”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

I love the view. He loves the food. I have tried better seafood along Jimbaran.
We had the front seat facing the ocean and sunset. I am not complaining. We had a fabulous night. He ordered lobster dinner. Soup came right and tasted good. The salad we called Gado Gado was also not bad at all. The Lobster were fresh and it was not too much. Accompanied by Bloody Mary we ordered from next door which is The Rock Bar, made our dinner even better. He also liked the seafood skewers. Overall pretty good.

“Romantic sunset”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Sat down & service started with fragrant cool towels. Food was very fresh and they prepare according to taste. Food gets selected then weighed (one pays by weight) I had snapper and jumbo prawns & it cost 180 000 IR. But the view of sunset over the ocean and service was worth it.
Skip the inclinator ride & use the steps directly to Kisik if you have reservation.

“Perfect honeymoon dinner”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We ordered the pre-prepared seafood platter. There was so much food - too much in fact. But the night was gorgeous with warm breezes, soft lights,nice music, wonderful service. This was the perfect dinner for us!
