“Loved it”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Went to Jimbarin years ago ....but was wary to return as had read it's a tourist trap and you pay way too much for the seafood. This trip went along for a bucks party ...and now I regret not coming here the last 2 trips. You just can't beat those views. Whole fish nicely grilled for around $14- with rice nad sambals ! ....nothing to complain about here. I think I'll return to Pandan SAri every Bali trip from now on ! Next time I'll get prawns too.

“How very disappointing”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

After so many good reviews we were incredibly disappointed with our experience here, if not for the beautiful setting it would have nothing to commend it. It is not at all value for money.We have eaten the most amazing food this past week in Bali, quality plus and great value for money. Here 8 prawns weigh one kg (for $20), 5 oysters the size of your small finger nail is considered a kg and the calamari was very tough and stringy. The service very basic and staff not at all interested in our concern about quality. Considering we have experienced the most amazing service and food in Bali Pandan is definitely left wanting in every way.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

If you walk along Jimbaran Bay Beach, you have a plethora of choices for seafood cafes. We ate at more than one during our stay but this cafe was the best value for money: simple, delicious food and good prices.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

After reading reviews on TA decided to try Pandanus Sari Cafe 2. Staff we're very friendly and attentive. We chose the red snapper, fried squid, oysters, chicken, chips and rice. The food was fairly ordinary - not that I can compare it to anywhere else on Jimbaran Bay as it was our first time there. The oysters were my favourite. Fish was a little dry and had a lot of bones. They gave us a complimentary fruit plate to finish. Enjoyed the experience though.

“As good as it gets!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Living in Bali is a dream n a nightmare with the hit or miss quality of food. Lucky for me I found the best Balinease Seafood at Pandan Sari 2. Friendly staff and excellent seafood! In 2 years of dining there, I have NEVER had a bad meal and 50$ goes a long way. Fun family or romantic....This place is whatever you want.
