This is possibly the worst place to eat in Bali, the food was sooo bad that me and my partner tasted one bite and left, we were really concerned that we would be sick the following day! We went next door to an Indian restaurant which was no comparison! Please don't waste your money or risk your health! Enjoy Bali... More

Wish we chose another place to eat. Food is boring and somewhat processed. Sweet and Sour Chicken tasted like frozen food I could make at home. My son's chicken nuggets were not enjoyable to his 11 year old pallet. My wife curry was very average. Out of all our meals we had in Bali over the last week, this ranks... More

Awful food. Our server was very friendly but the food was awful, I was angry that we had to pay for microwaved/packaged food. We were a group of six, ordered pizza steak, enchiladas, chicken parmigiana, chicken curry. All terrible apart from the parmigiana which was somewhat edible, everything else awful. We also ordered nachos for starters, very bad, weird sweet... More

We were only after a small snack as we had eaten well at lunchtime. Ordered nachos got a few small nachos on a plate of sickly sweet pink sauce and a couple of toppings but not entirely sure what they were. OH ordered chicken bites and after one taste he left them saying they were inedible. His potato wedges were... More

We found this place on an article/blog of must-see Bali bars. Not really sure why it made the list. Sure, there's a big, fake crocodile in the middle of the floor and it makes for fun pictures. But otherwise, it wasn't particularly noteworthy. It's Aussie-themed. And they serve beer here. But not Aussie beer, so there you go.

Food is ok although we went there for the Aussie roast beef they did not have, they have a huge banner out front saying roast but was not available, i Had The chicken schnitzel instead which was nice. Service was good and drinks reasonably priced. They probably need to get ride of the crocodile in the doorway, bit of an... More
