Really enjoyed their specialty duck. Crispy & flavoursome. Big restaurant with an outdoor feeling. Good for groups.

Duck very dry and small I think I had two mouthfuls! Don't forget the taxes! They add app 20% to your bill and having a few alcoholic drinks increased our bill a lot! Great atmosphere lousy food.

The food was over-rated and average. The service was poor and the waiter was not helpful in recommending any of the dishes despite the fact that we were obviously tourists and was there for the first time. He was either not interested or half asleep. The only bright spot of the evening was a sweet icy drink which was actually... More

I can't believe all the terrible reviews! However, I didn't have duck. I had guacamole and chips and a chicken and vegetable sandwich. Both were very delicious and so was the fresh squeezed orange juice. The restaurant had so much staff (I understand about some seeming aloof as my server was as well) but if at any point I felt...

Just didn't like the duck. It was dry, and so skinny. Like a real old duck. Nothing like what I have had elsewhere. Would not go again.

My hall duck must have been anorexic. I enjoyed all 3 bites. Waited 20 minutes in an empty restaurant watching 5 members of the wait staff chat. I finally got up and asked if I could order a drink. Then, because I heard it was good, I ordered the half-duck. 3 bites later, literally, it was all over. It was... More

Heard from some friends that we should go if we were in the area. Went in spite of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Boy did we regret it. The surroundings were nice enough, however the food really left a bad taste in the mouth. I had the crispy 'duck'. I use this loosely, seemed like a pigeon would have more meat... More

We were close to this restaurant and used to laugh at the English translation of the Balinese translation - Dirty Duck Diner. After reading reviews, we decided to give it a try. My wife tried their crispy duck dinner and I had a Fettucine noodles with shrimp. These were one of the best fettucine noodles I have ever had. We... More

This is an authentic experience . Beautiful area that the restaurant is located in . It has the rice fields at the back of the restaurant that you can wander around in . Try avoid the busy lunch period as lots of big tour buses come here . I went off peak and after lunch so it was quiet and... More
