Sanur’s very own Beach Cafe would be soooo much better if only they would occasionally revamp their menu! This is really the pick of places on Sanur beach when it comes to a non-hotel spot offering yummy modern cuisine. If you’re just here for a visit, you’ll do just fine, but expats will soon tire of the same old thing (even blackboard specials seem to very rarely change) and service that is increasingly hit and miss.

Having said that, the baked camembert with cranberry is to die for and the mains are very generously proportioned.

The kids’ menu is serviceable and staff are very friendly and tolerant of little ones running around. Take a bucket and spades – or buy some from the vendors along the beach for at most 30,000 rupiah (you may need to put on your hard-bargaining hat) and let your munchkins dig while you sip a glass of overpriced wine or ordinary coffee. If business is slow, grab one of the half dozen deckchairs and watch the kids paddle in the safe waters.

This isn’t a bad spot for an early Sunday brunch (they open at 8am) either, though it can depend on who is doing the eggs the day you go.

Beach Cafe is linked to Street Cafe up on Danau Tamblingan, which does very good cheesey Turkish pide (but has a long-running fly problem inside).
