Fantastic dinner!

I chose this restaurant for dinner because of the great reviews and it was fantastic. The atmosphere was gorgeous, right along a river, and the food was delicious. The staff was very nice and helpful. Next time, I will stay at the resort because everything was gorgeous.

We stayed at the Samaya and did the 100 candles dinner @ Swept away and the Balinese cooking class. Both of them were wonderful experiences and highly recommended

The 100 candlelight dinner is a must do. Very good service and great food . The ambience was amazing with all the candles lit on the rocks of the river. Suggest getting there before sunset to enjoy the light and see it change as it gets darker.

I booked here for a meal when we were on our honeymoon. I decided on the 100 candles dinner for something special...we are not the most romantic couple and this was definitely a romantic experience. The welcome was fantastic and we were taken on a buggie from the reception to the restaurant, which is down on the river front -... More

It's not inexpensive but the food and service are both good and the river is constantly burbling in the background.

We visited for dinner and had a lovely time. The staff were very inviting and explained the dishes well. The setting is also very impressive by the river. We had a tasting menu and it was delicious. The cocktails were also good. We felt the locavore was more memorable however we have no bad words to say about swept away... More

A memorable evening. We were warmly welcomed by Mr Putu who escorted us nimbly over the rocks to the perfect start of our 100 candles dinner - sitting comfortably in a forest by the side of a river sipping a delicious cocktail. An hour or so later we moved up to our very romantic table for dinner. The following courses... More
