when I'm in Padangbai I always have dinner in Padangbai Cafe. Freshly pressed fruit juice and excellent seafood. Try grilled Mahi-Mahi or Squid in spicy balinese sauce. The seafood is always fresh, the price is reasonable and the taste authentic

Really enjoyed cheap wholesome food. Loved the traditional flavour in all the food. Great juices and cheap large water bottles.

We ate at the Padangbai cafe for lunch while waiting for our boat. The lady was really nice and my avocado shake really delicious. However the hygiene was really poor. The bathroom was really gross and the kitchen not that clean either. The chicken satay I got wasn't tasty - and I found two hairs with something blue on it... More

Our fried rice came with a big black fly inside it! After we saw it we stopped eating but she still charged us! Very rude, dirty and surely not cooked with love...

This was a one woman show. She came and took our order serving only fresh fish from the local market that day (so many items on the menu were unavailable). She then went off and cooked it for us and it was really tasty. A great cheap eats!

Don't be fooled by the outside, this little joint serves up some tasty food. I initially did not want to go because of how it looked but don't be fooled it is clean and the food is yummy. So go visit, you won't be disappointed

my favourite restaurant when I stay in Padangbai. Fresh Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna or Barracuda served grilled with spicy Sambal, rice and veggies. Many local dishes available at very reasonable price

This place serves amazing food! We had two tasty seafood dishes which were divine! It's a simple place but the food is outstanding and the owners are friendly. Would highly recommend.
