“Great food with live music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We loved the food, it was a marriage between east and west palate. The service was superb and our waiter, Mr Okta was very informative about the dishes and local culture.

“Very well executed fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Very much liked this restaurant. Nearly, but not quite, one michelin star dining. Food was tasty, presented with care, and properly cooked to order in the case of lamb/beef. Represented for me best value of all the Ayana resort restaurants.

Fabulous menu. Great presentation. Generous portions. The fruit platter is terrific, as is the Dave eggs Benedict which come with crab.

“A la carte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Great for a la carte lovers. Good food and staff. Great coffee. Breakfast was nice but not enough choices. I preferred buffet breakfast at Padi.

Dear ‘915Margaret1955’,

Thank you so much for your review. I will share your comments on the food, service and coffee with the Dava team. In regards to Dava’s breakfast service, which is exclusive to Villa guests, it is a la carte but offers unlimited selection for guests, to try as many items from the menu as you like. The Dava breakfast is an alternative to the buffet breakfast served at Padi Restaurant, which is equally satisfying albeit a different concept, with a buffet set-up. I appreciate your comments and hope to see you again sometime soon for another fine dining experience.

Kindest regards,

Manik Sudarsana
