The Colonial restaurant, Jalan Pantai Silayukti (located at OK Divers) ☎ +62 363 41790. Great food, no seafood on the menu. Our preferred restaurant within the vicinity.

Bu Jero Grilled Fish & restaurant, Jl. Pura Segara ☎ +62 819 1624 6070. Served grilled fish, catch of the day, bought direct from the fishermen.

Cafe Kerti, Jl Silayukti (in the middle of the main beach), ☎ +62 361 41391, e-mail: info@kertibeach-inn.com/. Kerti is a not so good budget place to stay, but serves good food in their restaurant. Nice views from the second floor. edit

Martini’s Warung (in the main square). 6AM-11PM. Set in the corner of the main square (where buses drop off), Martini’s Warung is a great little local treat. With budget prices Martini’s offers authentic local food, often cooked by Martini herself. Tourists come to chat to Martini and each-other over beers and home cooked meals. Mie Goreng is highly recommended. edit
