Duck was so tasty and crispy! We ordered 2 ducks for 5 people with rice and some vegetables and we felt full! Sambal was hot and was awesome. We were seated right at the back of the restaurant with the view of the padi fields and quacking ducks. Quite expensive for a meal in Bali but definetly worth a try!

I stayed at the Alya Resort which is next door to this restaurant. My driver said I should try their "famous" crispy duck. I arrived at around 6:30 PM, alone. The place seemed very big in size, but the front looked more like a reception raea or shop, really weird. The whole place is DARK with candles lit and some... More

Crispy duck, Balinese veg (hot) low table on cushions in covered bali hut with temperature in low 30's (hot, hot). Meal very nice but would've preferred a more open setting in the hopes of a breeze. Would go back to try some more of the menu.

This place was purported to have the best duck in Bali. Way off the mark. The duck was tiny and while they do say crispy duck right on the sign to the restaurant, it goes behind crispy. It's like they starved the duck for 3 months before it died of natural causes and then they cook the duck which leaves... More

come try as got many recommended from tourism. place was ok, a bit dark and open so lots of mosquitoes. Duck taste was fine, never eat duck with watermelon, new experience for me. From restaurant we walked back to hotel and good to see view around town. Dont expect high standard of service, but not that poor.

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...
