I visited La Playa twice in June last year and enjoyed it so was a bit disappointed by our experience there last night. I had Lumpia which had very little flavour,with a very watery Cosmopolitan and tough crumbed calamari which I gave to my husband after spending what seemed like five minutes chewing half a ring. His Balinese beef with... More

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by friends who loved the pork ribs (they said the best yet!). We were not as big a fans of the ribs - very western and sweet. The view is spectacular, especially because we dined on the full moon. The band was awesome - really set the tone and atmosphere. And the... More

Sanur Beach has enjoyed a recent transformation. Whereas previously there was large stretches of undeveloped land between the major resorts with only a handful of warungs separating the few garage fodder tourist shops and massage ladies, now there are a pleasant number of cafes and restaurants that have set up shop on this beach side space alongside the existing businesses....

he best thing about this restaurant is putting your feet in the sand. It's like a picnic on the beach, but at a table. The food is great, the service is great. I would come back for sure, but to be honest there's nothing that makes it stand out as a place I would say "definitely go there!" There's nothing... More

We visited La Playa Cafe for lunch & enjoyed the delicious local food. The setting & ambience is rustic , casual & welcoming. The beachfront location also adds to its atmosphere. Reasonable prices & friendly service. Highly recommended for lunch.

One of our favorite restaurants along Sanur's beachfront boardwalk. We like the rijsttafel - particularly for their very tasty beef rendang and chicken curry! We've returned often! Great views, friendly, attentive staff - really great food.

Walking the streets & beachfront we stumbled upon La Playa Cafe. We grabbed one of the couches, ordered a wood oven pizza and a couple drinks. The ambiance and people watching were great. The wood oven pizza was good. The service was just OK. The prices were not as good as others. In a pinch an OK place to go,... More

Right on the beach La Playa is in a great spot. I had spring rolls for a start, which are always good here and then a traditional Balinese dish with chicken dine with a hint of chilli in a slightly sweet soy sauce, absolutely delicious! Icy cold beer. Staff friendly and efficient. Prices very reasonable

I been here a few times. The 'rijsstafel' was really a pleasure to eat. Great view on the sea, and good prices.
