No more Scallywags - it's The Beach Club at Sandy Bay!

In April 2011, the best restaurant on Nusa Lembongan was re-branded and became The Beach Club at Sandy Bay. The changes evident from when it was Scallywags, are subtle but nonetheless noticeable.

The menu has been streamlined a little from the over-long selection previously offered, and there are some great new additions which I tried, including an excellent Thai Red Curry. The drinks list has remained pretty much the same and they still make the best cocktails on the island by far. The owners do plan to expand the already impressive wine list.

Daily Fresh Seafood Barbeque

The new branding looks great and the staff are very smart in their new uniforms. All the well thought through features which has made this place such a success remain - the beach-front infinity pool, daily barbeque, air-conditioned wine cellar etc.

Scallywags had rapidly become an institution on Nusa Lembongan and it is clear that in its new incarnation as The Beach Club, things will only get even better. It is great for Nusa Lembongan to have a restaurant of this quality, and I urge all visitors to pay a visit. The free pick up and and drop-off service is a great idea. Give them a call to book the pick up on 0828 97005656.
