Lovely, stylish place with an open kitchen. Very friendly and on point staff. The food is amazing (we got a very nice amuse, great homemade bread, sweet fresh juice drinks, an amazing and well presented starter, main course and desert) for a good price. We would highly recommend it if you like australian and indonesian food.

This is the place to go for a romantic dinner date that won't break the bank. You feel like your in a 5 star restaurant with first class service but a price that keeps you coming back for more.

After a week in Sanur we wanted to try another venue to 'share the love' by eating elsewhere. We were welcomed by a very courteous waitress & we opted to sit 'inside' which had great air-conditioning. Other diners ate 'outside' but it's all under roofing with ceiling fans. Our starter was pumpkin soup & we both agreed it was the... More

We decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews. I have to say, there is nothing special about this place; Inflated prices for the area and food that is plain and boring. I had the Balinese chicken and I have to say I had a better Balinese Chicken in the Warung Little Bird and it was accompanied by a... More

I had a wonderful meal here with a group of friends. The service and the staff were outstanding and professional. I ordered the rice paper rolls for entree and it was very moorish. I had the tortellini for main and the sauce was so fresh! The pasta was cooked perfectly. I really enjoyed my meal here and the air con... More

Amazing food and service. Loved the friendliness of the staff and the special touch of having the chef come to our table to ask us if we enjoyed our meal. Nice touch ;) Air conditioned room makes the dining experience very pleasant. Recommend booking to secure a seat. Highly recommended.

I chose this place on my last night in Sanur because of the good TA ratings... and now wish I'd gone somewhere else. If you want to feel like you're back in Europe (or Australia) and fancy something you'd class as 'up market', then you might love this place. But the restaurant itself completely lacks personality. Everything is beige. I'm... More
