The food is very good and the dishes are copious. The atmosphere is very good and the service excellent. Overall worth every penny and the short walk from the main street.

Their warung is small and has a lovely ambience with the sound of water trickling in the background. Exceptional service and the food was delicious. I had the pork... More

Guacamole entree, main course and drinks ( Bintangs and red rice wine...yum). Total cost 533,000IDR that's under $50 AU for everything and we... More

This tiny warung is a bit out of the way, but a good find nonetheless. We enjoyed guacamole, Putu's special chicken, crepe dessert and a large bottle of water for $16.00 USD. Glad we went there.

The owner and chef Putu made the effort to specially open her restaurant and cooked a feast for my two friends and I in the afternoon! It was a very small warong with a nice ambience. All the food has a homemade touch. As I called the evening before, we got to try her delicious smoked duck - very tender... More

A small but lovely little Warung. The home-cooked meal was delicious and our hosts were delightful. The prices were so reasonable. Do make a reservation. Don't miss it !
