This restaurant is really good. The stuff is very nice, the food delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful. It is not so big but that's why it is such a cozy place. The decoration really called my attention. It is so beautiful that I've never forgotten it. It is worth having dinner there.

This place is really nice but you are really paying for the location. If you were to walk just outside the resort, you would easily find a restaurant with superior food for at least half the price. It's a nice place for a drink and beautiful ambience but I would suggest a meal elsewhere.

Both courses were cooked to perfection and big servings. We drank Balinese wine called Artisan and also another Two Islands. The grapes are from Australia however the... More

We were staying at the Intercontinental Bali Resort and this restaurant is inside the resort. We came for the Tokyo Night where you can choose 8 from the 15 tapas style menu on offer. I thought that it was ok, some of the dishes were outstanding like the Beef teppanyaki on skewer, wagyu sushi but the rest were pretty average.... More
