“Fresh Seafood but Exorbitantly Priced”
Review of Gurita Seafood

Gurita Seafood
Ranked #637 of 1,151 Restaurants in Kuta
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 June 2016 via mobile

There is no questioning the freshness of the seafood on offer (literally from tank to kitchen to plate) but the prices are high. Quality of the food isn't that great either to justify the prices. Service staff there also leaves much to be desired.

Date of visit: June 2016

I was recommended by my driver to visit this restaurant that may be cheaper than Jimbaran in terms of seafood.

Yes, indeed, this place is cheaper. However, the price is too high for small portion of food, such as 80,000 Rupiah (~6.5 USD) for a small plate of beef dish, 100,000 Rupiah (~8 USD) for half a kilogram of clam dish.

I believe this restaurant is more Chinese Restaurant than Seafood Restaurant.

Also, they have made a critical mistake by misunderstanding our order. We ordered Plain Rice (Nasi Putih) and they understood it as Orange Drink (Es Jeruk) that doesn't even sound similar and it costs exactly five times more than Rice, and they did not repeat our order to confirm it. In the end, we ended up paying 100,000 Rupiah (~8 USD) for 4 drinks that we didn't even want. That is a big shame to this restaurant.

Also, the staff here are way beyond the needed number, and all they do is talk and joke around while the customers are eating. Being a frequent visitor to multiple Chinese restaurants in Indonesia, this is not up to the standard considering the fact that the price is on the higher side for Indonesia.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if you want true "Seafood" in Bali. Go to somewhere else, but definitely not Jimbaran.

6 of us had our late lunch at this restaurant. The food was good but felt the price was on the higher side, especially for the fish(500k IDR for 1KG). Maybe it should be expected that this restaurant is catering for tourists and they would want to charge premium price. I'm not sure how this restaurant compares to other seafood restaurant around Kuta...

Overall good food but expect to pay for it.

There wasn't much of a crowd when we got there. When we left, we had no answers why there wasn't a crowd at lunch time. The food was amazing. It's super value for money. So good, we went there for dinner 4 days in a row. This shows that the quality of the food is consistent and it's prepared fast. A restaurant that deserves more customers. Definitely worth a try
