We only ordered 2 drinks, and 2 appetizers. The bill nearly came up to IDR 400k, which is quite ridiculous, as we had a very good meal at nearby Bumbu Bali for less than IDR 600k. We could not taste any alcohol in our cocktails. The calamari was alright, but portions were pathetic. The fries looked like they were re-fried as they were very dark in color and quite oily. Seems like the staff here are more interested to serve westerners. That is alright, cos we will never come back again.

Hi H L, thank you for dining at Meads in Bali & taking the time to write a review, we are disappointed to hear that you will never return again. We are even more disappointed that you did not complain to the management about your experience whilst you were in the restaurant.........If you had done so we would gladly have corrected things & discussed any problems.......

Regarding your cocktails, I can assure you that they contained alcohol, especially as we ONLY use Premium Branded spirits.
The Crispy Squid (Calamari), as stated in the menu is an entree size dish, you can order a main size if you so wish.
Bumbu Bali is a very good restaurant & we recommend many of our guests to visit, especially if they want to experience traditional Balinese cuisine, however you can not compare like for like prices when one is Asian & the other Western fare..........same as any city in the world.
Meads in Bali is very proud of the Multi Nationalities that dine at our restaurant including many Asian nationals, hence our menu is also in Chinese.
Thank you once again for your review.
