Prices are excellent, service is quick and restaurant is super clean and air conditioned. All ingredients are fresh daily. Mango smoothies are sensational! Well done Papa Besars, we will be... More

Stopped by for lunch one day, which was very nice. Tasty food and being February, the air-con was a welcome treat. Vegetable fritters and main dishes were very enjoyable and staff were pleasant. We would return again.

Decided to try this restaurant after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. We had nutty chicken, chicken curry in a rice bowl and vegetable fritters all of which was super tasty. They have some great juices too, in my opinion the magic nutmeg is the best juice I've ever had. All at a reasonable prize too.

Like most after reading all of the reviews my wife and I had lunch here a week ago. Before I sound harsh the food was very good traditional Indonesian food but not far superior to many other places in Lombok were you can the same dishes with better views. Maybe it is the price tag that is so appealing as... More

After reading some of the great reviews for this café my husband and I decided to pop in for dessert after eating elsewhere. I had the banana crepe rolls and my husband had the banana and chocolate 'fritters' (sorry they weren't actually called fritters on the menu). I'm afraid the banana in my banana rolls (which on menu said it... More

Loved the food, there was 4 of us and each had a different dish. Our favourite was the Nutty Chicken, covered in cashew nuts and very tasty. You could have different levels of spice, 1 chilli mild and so on.

Do yourselves a favour and go and have a meal or two here. The owner Linda is such a warm and friendly lady... More
