And by character, I am referring to the cook who owns this Warung with his lovely wife. We were tempted in by their charm and we did not regret it.

Whilst the food took a little while to come, that was simply down to the fact that everything was made from scratch and you really could tell. Fresh fish, spicy sauce, plump rice, all served with care and pride.

"Come taste my food", the owners wife shouted, so we did and I am very glad we did. A real hidden treasure, not to be missed.

When we sat down for dinner we where the only couple in this warung. It's not on the beach but you can't see the sea when it's dark ;) The owners made a very very very nice meal for us (we put a picture on TA as well): they called it the special or rijsttafel. We didn't know you normally would order this in advance, because it is a lot of work to make. But after some time the best meal of our Bali trip arrived: we had a plate for 2 with barracuda, a chicken curry, the BEST spring rolls we tasted, satey, fried rice and vegetables. It was all freshly prepared, they told us they had to work very hard to make this in about 30 minutes. It was by far the nicest meal we tasted so far on our trip. We were fully stuffed but decided to give the desserts a try as well: the banana fritters were very tasty... After this wonderful meal we stayed to have some large bintangs and chatted an hour with the owners: a wonderful couple, so nice. The place is maybe not on the best location, but is has good food, great and honest people and we hope others will discover this place. You will be pleasantly surprised.

We visited this little gem twice. The second time just to have the spring rolls. We walked past one night and it was empty - we were on our way to Warung Enak. On our way back Made was there and we had a look at the menu. It was still empty. W epromised we would return the next night. So glad that we did. She and her husband run the Warung. It's all prepared for you fresh so yes there is a bit of a wait. Easily the best Spring rolls in Bali! Everything is so cheap. Fruit juices just 10k. Entrees, mains and drinks for 3 - 27k. All our plates were empty. I would say this little Warung was better than the highly rated Enak.

Warung Mekar is a small local restaurant run by a husband and wife team, Made and Putu. The food is cooked with love and passion. Made and Putu are so friendly and welcoming and take pride in their service. The spring rolls are absolutely delicious and request the sambal as it is freshly made for each serve. When in Amed please do not miss this little gem.

Only run by two people, the cook is also the owner what explains the great taste very nicely prepared food.
I really recommend the restaurant because you can feel the it is cooked by passion from the very nice man and his woman.
Unfortunately it is based a little bit loud at the road but therefore the food is the best I had in one week Amed!
