CAFE/RESTAURANT:
There is only one simple/traditional cafe.

*) You can order cooked Lobster 1 kg for Rp300k. Include rice and ice tea. But, you have to wait 1.5 hours cause they have to look the fresh Lobster. Better you ask my old brother to call the restaurant to prepare before you arrived. So, it will ready to eat when you arrived.

**) For foreigner i recommend: Don’t drink with ice cube in any restaurant or street food in Indonesia, because indonesian ice cube made from not boiled water. It contain bacteria (E. Coli) that can makes stomach problem or diarrhea. Indonesian intestine become immune (adapted) to this bacteria, but not for foreigner (american and european especially).
