We didn't get to pre order the duck sadly, but our food was great. Rice wine was delicious! Close to the jazz cafe, we walked over after dinner. It is a little bit off the main road, but worth finding. Friendly owners. I would visit again especially if we were going to the jazz cafe after...

Stumbled on Putu's when scouring trip adviser for something small and locally owned. The food (especially the Tempe) was outstanding - fresh and tasty. The owners were so genuine and welcoming and the fact it was just a small place with 5 tables up a quiet alley off the main street made it really nice and relaxing. We booked a... More

We found this warung by a recommendation from another traveller. My friend and I had a bit of difficulty finding it as is off the main drag, but well worth it. The menu is authentic Balinese fare, and very tasty. Nioman and Putu are just lovely hosts, we will be back.

It's a slight walk away from the Main Street but was definitely worth it. A cute little restaurant and friendly staff. A basic menu with Indonesian cuisine. The meal was up there with the best I've had in Bali! Would recommend it to others and wish we were staying longer to return!!

Had a lovely meal - can only recommend people going to this wonderful family-run place. A little hidden from the main road - but a hidden jewel!

Suberb, low-key restaurant. They really make you feel like you are in their home. Food was just excellent.

We had this restaurant recommended to us by our accommodation owner. The service was outstanding and so very friendly. The owners both came to chat with us as we ate our delicious meals, commenting on everything from the food to the local customs and religious festivals. Their 'Ginger Fizz' drink was both refreshing and extremely good. A little jewel in... More

We preordered the duck on other reviewers recommendation and it was well worth it. Duck comes with many delicious sides, sambals, green beans, delicious chicken sate and crumbed pork. Bring a big appetite! The owner was very also friendly. Highly recommend the duck!
