    A cool seafood restaurant beach strip for dinner watching sunset
    A cool seafood restaurant beach strip for a beautiful sunset dinner. We had a rainy/overcast day but managed to eat on the beach at Aroma Cafe. Our driver drove the car straight into the restaurant and we were able to pick the seafood prior to cooking, pay per kilogram. Nice experience.

    Magical sunset and seafood feast
    On the whole the experience is very worth while. The sunset was magical and the food delicious (although quite expensive). The only problem is the rubbish in the beach. There is so much!!! It is really sad to see. The govt or the restaurants need to get to getter and clean up.

    What happened to Jimbaran Bay?
    We've been to Jimbaran Bay a number of times before and have had a good time. Clean beach, delicious seafood, awesome sunset. However, we got an unpleasant surprise during our visit there a few days ago. The whole area was littered with rubbish, mostly plastic cups and bottles. Piling up all along the beach. We were so turned off we decided not to eat there anymore. We even asked a local restaurant staff what happened and when the area would be cleaned. He said it was because of the wind direction and that the rubbish should be gone by April when the wind blows the other way. Whhat?!! So you're going wait until April to clean up?! Please Bali, look after your beautiful nature. So very sad and disappointing to see this happened at one of our favourite places on the island.

This place is not what is used to be couple of years back. The beach was not well kept, with garbage all over. There were urine smell near our tables and food was grossly overpriced and not even fresh and over cooked.

It seems the restaurant strategy now is turn the table quick and make quick money. the fire works in the evening is sporadic, pathetic.

Lastly, please. Do not patronise horse ride along the beach. That poor animal is dragging itself along.

Bring your money elsewhere where you can have better bang for your buck with local authentic cuisine instead of this tourist trap.

Enjoy the sun going down on Jimbaran Beach together with our guests from Singapore while having dinner, the grilled fish here is very fresh so if you are on holiday in Bali don't forget to stop by Jimbaran Beach🌹

It is embarrassing how the locals have let this place go. I have been to Bali a number of times but never to Jimbaran Bay despite all the good things I had heard and don’t anyone else bother. Always heard positive things but the beach heavily polluted. Food poor at best and severely overpriced. Even got COVID from the taxi driver on the way there. How a country can’t take pride in its local attractions is beyond me. If you are going to Bali stay in your 5 star resort, do some bartering, head to Bagus Watch and Waterbom but don’t waste your time in the polluted attractions surrounding. So sad.

A very busy place lots and lots of resturants there to choose from great sunsets while eating dinner on sand
Music band walk up and down beach and play you a song for a price but was so worth it review the resturants a little before you go my tip
But food was not all that great where we went but did enjoy the night and the surroundings

So sad to see this beach now a rubbish tip and far cry from the white sand, blue water advertised. Glad we were staying in Nusa Dua and not here. Would be too scared to swim in the water and the rubbish washing up was unbelievable. Very sad.
