I do not know whether we are talking about the right Bianco because the one we went to was in Legian near the Padma Resort, not Kuta. We decided to go to this restaurant after walking past it the previous night, having already eaten dinner. From the street it looked like it had great atmosphere - old colonial style decorations, ceiling fans, etc. But as soon as we sat down inside both my wife and I noticed the slightly sticky look of the table. For a main course, I had fish (snapper allegedly) - the overwhelming flavour was the grease that it had been cooked in, which tasted like the fat from off roast meat (beef or lamb). I've never had fish taste like this before and it was unpleasant to eat meat flavoured fish (unless it was supposed to be a Bali version of 'surf and turf'). My wife had an Indonesian dish with several small servings of different food, one of which was chicken; she was a bit concerned about the taste of it. I tried it and it did smell off. It may have only been a coincidence of course but in the early hours of the following morning she suffered the dreaded Bali Belly, even though she had not eaten a great deal of the chicken. While we were there my wife noticed one couple walk in, take a seat and then a few minutes later, got up and left. I think maybe we should have done the same. It is a pity that the food was not up to scratch as I am sure the problems could be easily remedied if the management wanted to do so. On the positive side, the place had great atmosphere which was added to by the two musicians who entertained us - one with an electric violin and the other with a guitar; their singing was also very good. With a little attention to the cleanliness of the tables and chairs and improving food quality, this restaurant could be packed every night.

Dear Valued Guest,

Our property, Bianco Restaurant & Bar, is located at Jl Padma, Legian. It should be next to a Japanese restaurant Take II. Should this be the case we apologize for the very negative experience that you have had.
Warm regards from Rama Restaurants Bali. All about Food, Fun and Passion.
