Eat and meet

Food in Cimaja is surprisingly good for a place that is off the main tourist trail.





Restaurants attached to hotels serve decent quality grub, but at tourist oriented prices, so for cheap eats a bunch of warungs and food carts line the main road and dish up all manner of cuisine from simple point and pick to grilled and fried fish. Most local restaurants do not serve alcohol, and booze in Western restaurants is pricier than other parts of Indonesia—you may wish to bring the duty free.

One of the most popular joints in town is Nurda’s Cimaja Point Restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with tasty food and a terrific view of the waves from the open style eatery. Nurda’s serves Thai, Indonesian, Western and also a variety of vegetarian meals and delicious fresh seafood with prices around 50,000 to 80,000 rupiah for mains. Everything is fresh with quality produce. Grab a beer from the bar (large: 60,000 rupiah, small: 30,000 rupiah), sit back and relax as you stare at the ocean. Nurda’s is also one of the few places in town that serves wine and spirits too. Saturday nights the crowd gets pumping with live music and a great atmosphere full of friendly locals and travellers.

Just down the road, Cimaja Square is also popular with seafood, pasta and rice and noodle dishes all cooked to perfection. Prices are middle of the road, but you do get great quality for your money. Enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine as you shoot some pool or settle in for a game of chess in very relaxing surrounds. The friendly owner does the rounds of the tables to ensure all are having a great time.

A little further west, Bikers Warung at BW Beach Cafe and Villas serves freshly cooked and lovingly prepared rice, noodle and Western dishes washed down with icy cold drinks in a bamboo setting overlooking the beach. Prices range from 20,000 to 75,000 rupiah.
