We visit Mana every year and stay at the resort but always visit Ratu Kinis restaurant. This place reminds me of some old 50's scene - a wooden place right on the beach, customers are 60% young backpackers (from everywhere) and the others are escapees from the resort. Great atmosphere and good food at low prices (love the chicken curry). One night I think there were 13 different nationalities (mostly Europeans).
The food can be very very fresh. One night I went in the kitchen to see a freshly caught Marlin of over 90kg. Another night their fishing boat pulls up at the restaurant steps with another catch of very big fish.
A special thanks to the 2 operators of the dive shop attached to Ratu Kini's. Who had their regular table at the restaurant. A couple of nights we arrived late at the restaurant when it was already full and they kindly gave up their table so that we could use their table - thanks you guys.
Great and interesting place to eat - a ton of atmosphere and good friendly service.
