Fantastic place

Charming was our choice for dinner and it was the best decision that we could make. We liked everything - the service was excellent - not annoying, but very attentive.

We have been to sanur numerous times and decided to finally try this place out because of tripadvisor ratings. We were not that impressed with the food and probably will not be going back. The restaurant itself is nice though and the staff did try hard but the food was just poor quality for the price.

We have just had a most " Charming Experience " at this magnificent restaurant in Sanur. The overall night was just first class in every detail. We were picked up from our resort, met with a warm welcome, the food was just out of this world, the beer was beautiful and freezing, the service was exceptional, and the band was... More

Probably the best service we've ever had in any restaurant anywhere in the world. Amazing attention to detail. From the cold towels on arrival through the wine service, the little stools to rest your handbag on, to the inclusive ride back to our villa. Lovely food, tuna carpaccio, mozzarella, John Dory fillet and linguine, Panna Cotta and apple pie. Finished... More

Two of us had dinner here on Saturday night. This is certainly one of the finer dining establishments in Sanur and the restaurant's interior is very beautifully done in a kind of neo/retro-Javanese style (you'll see what I mean). Service is smooth: after we finished entree, our waitress asked whether we wanted to wait 10 or 20 minutes before our... More

Charming is - exactly that: Charming! Good choice of different foods. We had lamb shank Morrocan style, grilled pork ribs Australian style and French style apple pie. All delicious, but a little pricier than other Sanur restaurants, for sure worth the difference.

We tried some weird sounding dishes (how about fois gras, dragon fruit, blueberry icecream and apples!) and were extremely impressed by how they worked out. Paired with excellent service and reasonable prices it was a perfect choice for an out of the ordinary dinner experience.

We had Rijsttafel at Charming, kind aromatic ambience with lovely songs serenading us, I must add that the décor here is exotic and agreed that this restaurant dining, is not just a meal but an experience with humble piece of decadence which has been crafted with an artisan's heart. Look up for the wooden genitalia!

Garlic snails are perfect here, hot and tasty and beautifully presented here but the Indonesian 10 dish tasting banquet let the restaurant down, go back to what you do and do well. Wish we stayed with just the main course menu but the staff suggested the banquet. It was a let down on the night . We will return again.
