“Great food, beautiful views, not cheap but so worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We kept coming back to this place because it's very beautiful, incredibly relaxed and it has the best views in Kuta Lombok.

There are lots of cool board games, and the owner has put a lot of thought into making this a cut way above anything else in Kuta in terms of ambiance and food.

All the food is veggie and it's delicious. Portions are a little small for the price, but it is quality food and it is nice to not have to eat something fried. The teas are delicious and the cakes are divine.

Trying to find a clean kitchen and restaurant in Kuta Lombok is hard. Here nobody smokes, tables are kept clean, and the kitchen is on full display, and it's beautiful. You know you're eating well and you know that you won't get food poisoning.

Plates come in at c$5 which is more than we wanted to spend, but you pay a premium for views, service and quality food.

Only downside is that it is 4-5km up a hill so you'll need a scooter to get up there.

“Amazing views and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

One of my favorite restaurants and views in Kuta, Lombok! The atmosphere is always charming and relaxing. They offer a variety of great dishes. The view from the hill is the best view in Kuta.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful view over Kuta's bays and nice focaccias! The Brazilian lime juice was good.
The poor service was the only negative point of attention.

“A must: food, atmosphere and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Ashtari restaurant is an amazing venue, with vegetarian fresh dishes well combined and studied. The menu is a fusion between indonesian and mediterrean flavors. You can eat wonderful focaccia with tempe, delicious indo salads and so on. Beverages and cakes are also very good.
The place is very silent and relaxing, and the view over the bay is speechless. Perfect also for yoga and breakfast.
Get up in that hill is quite difficult, but it's worth (anyway they were thinking to build a new road).

“Nice place, relaxed atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

On the road to Mawi you'll find Ashtari, the perfect place to relax in silence!
You've got a beautiful view over the bay of Kuta, too bad of the 2 electricity masts..
The food is nice, the drinks are good.
You realy should try there brownies or cakes!!
