“Fun in a tasty meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

From the first sight you'll recognize the funny spirit of the place. This what had grabbed us to try the place that we haven't heard abt before.
The staff welcomes u and explain to you their two rules...when u want to order or any help, just turn on the blue plate mentions "Stop Forrest stop" and u'll find all the staff in the place screaming to direct the attention of ur waiter/waitress to serve u.

The food is very good and the menu is rich with mostly seafood items but few steaks or non sea food dishes.
Try the platter that includes 4 types of shrimps ...it's a wide selection. Food comes quickly in atmosphere is full of slogans and quotes from the movies "Forest Gump" which is playing in the restaurant.

There is a store inside the restaurant where you can buy some souvenirs from the place ranges from pins and fridge magnets and to T shirts. Also there is a small museum displaying clothes used (or similar to) the ones used in the movie with a story board telling some secrets of the movie shooting and other interesting stuff.

The place is a bit on the expensive side, but it worth the visit. if it's ur birthday,..go there and enjoy untraditional celebration from all staff there and sometimes other guests.

Highly recommended to dine in.

“What a night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had a group of 18 all of family and 2 birthdays that day, what a welcome! Great food, service and friendly staff, we got the good ol birthday bang and our birthday kids were given a yummy cup cake and candle to go with it. The food excelled and the guys around our table couldn't stop raving about the spare ribs, best of all the beer was cold!! must visit!!

“The fun atmosphere is their edge.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

It is hard not to laugh when you see the waiters running shouting stop forrest when seeing "stop forrest stop" sign, it is just so much fun. they run, they laugh, they play the drums for no reason. the whole atmosphere would make you happy.

Food: good with reasonable prices, i had the shrimps platter, shrimps cooked in 4 different ways, my husband had "the boat trash" which is a bucket full of fried sea food, shrimp, squid..etcall good.
I wish they offer more varieties in the menu thou.

Service: fast and fun

Drinks: rich menu of cocktails and mocktails

Location: in the heart of Kuta. 2 minutes walk to Discovery mall

they even have a gift shop where my husband got couple of t-shirts. I recommend that you go at least once to enjoy the shrimps and the fun atmosphere

“Good food, Good fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I went and was able to get a table for 8 without any dramas. We all ordered different mains and everyone seemed to have really enjoyed them.
I had ribs with prawns, complimented by a few sneaky Bintangs.
My dish was great; real tasty, filling without giving you the over powering sick feeling that i sometimes get in Bali.
Environment there is very good as there always seems to be someones birthday.
Slightly overpriced for Bali but worth every cent
Will go back everytime im in Bali
