The tourism industry in Bali has been proliferating for many years, and so has the seafood industry.

Kisik Lounge & Seafood Restaurant Jimbaran

Kisik Lounge & Seafood Restaurant is a beautiful eatery on the Ayana Estate in Jimbaran. Placed within an idyllic setting, one which boasts spectacular views of the ocean and neighbouring beaches, the lounge has an entire menu of delicious seafood to choose from. Visitors can choose their preferred dishes by checking out the restaurant’s display and seeing what takes their fancy.

Kisik has an impressive variety of shellfish, including fresh lobsters, prawns, shrimps, calamari, and oysters.

The Fisherman Club Sanur

The Fisherman Club at Andaz Bali Resort is a restaurant that is about something other than being fancy. However, it does offer a top-notch dining experience thanks to the great variety of seafood and meat dishes. Found not far away from Sanur Beach and Denpasar Airport, the place makes the most of its tropical surroundings; from its mesmerising outside area, you can fall in love with a breathtaking ocean view while enjoying your meal.

Dishes served at the Fisherman Club are inspired mainly by traditional Jimbaran cuisine. If you’re into something filling, give a shot to The Fisherman’s Burger. And yes, it’s a fish burger! Made with fresh fish or grilled tuna, it will definitely indulge your buds. If you’d prefer just a light bite to eat, you might opt for their salad menu, which is pretty impressive, too.

Apart from enjoying the magnificent sunset views and delicious food, you can also experience their fish showcase. What can be better than watching the freshest catches of the day with a glass of white wine (even if you didn’t catch it)?

Ikan Eatery Nusa Dua

Seafood is a staple in the Balinese diet. As such, you will find that most restaurants here in Bali have a large selection of seafood dishes. The menu at Ikan Eatery is no exception to this rule.

The chef at this particular restaurant provides guests with a range of exquisite fish dishes. Generally, it’s best to share dishes with the table so that you can taste everything the menu offers, from Ikan Eatery’s little nibbles and tapas to its mains and desserts.

Their signature dish is called The Cingklak, which is a one-of-a-kind sharing platter motivated by the conventional Indonesian wooden playing board, where an assortment of appetisers are served on the ‘singular’, comprising Lombok shellfish fresh, scaled-down angle sate lilit with sambal matah, perkedel jagung with whipped tofu mayo, crab spring roll with belimbing wuluh salsa, chicken satay, and hamburger satay. For organic options, try Bulung, a conventional ocean growth serving of mixed greens made of burned fish and kuah pindang scented dressing. For the Mains, don’t miss out on the flavourful Fish XO Noodle, stir-fried egg noodles with XO sauce and blended fish, infant green bok choy, and pickle.

Expert Opinion

First things first, I love seafood! This is one of the main reasons I moved to this beautiful island ten years ago, and I have been exploring the seafood options that this island has until today.

So here are the top three best seafood restaurants that I would love to share:

Kisik Restaurant, Ikan restaurant, Ijen restaurant.

These three restaurants are my best choices because of the consistently high food quality, impeccable hygiene, and excellent service.

There are many seafood restaurants, and the warung is something that you should try if you come to Bali to explore the local attractions.

Enjoy Bali and its richness!
