“Overrated, food bland, service slow”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The proprietor is clearly using his past job at the 5-star Damai resort to promote himself and his restaurant. However, the food is bland and the quality far from what is served at the Damai. The service is way too slow albeit friendly. The ambience is not very good; a big barn with a metal roof. So would I come back: a big no! And to think that the proprietor has the audacity to give cooking classes is beyond me...

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Yesterday we had an excellent 3 course dinner with the most friendly staff.
High standard of quality food for a very reasonable price.
Today we decided to sign up for the cooking classes, which was a great experience.
Recommendable place to go!

“Wonderful cuisine and staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were just walking past and decided to drop in for dinner....so glad we did! Wonderful dishes, Lobster Ravioli, Pan Fried Scallops, Tumpek Rempeyek, Cap Cai, Ikan Sambal Matah and Pesan be Pasih over two nights because one night was just not enough!!

The chef and owner Ketut Tangkas Adyana has been to Europe and back in his training as a chef and learnt some wonderful recipes along the way.

The venue is nice, a little on the dark side and night, cosy but hard to read menu a little. Staff very helpful, especially Ibu Sri, a lovely lady.

Well worth a visit.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

You are seated in a dim lit barn, which could be romantic, or diversified but in this case is only boring.

The proprietor was friendly, but that was the best property of this restaurant.
I won't get into the details, but the food is nothing to write home about and way overpriced for what it is.
Service is very slow.

Will we go back? Most likely not.

“Didn't Live up to the Hype”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Almost barn like feel, no atmosphere, food was ok but nothing really special. The service was very slow for the number of people in the restaurant at the time, waiting 45 mins for desert and then another 15 for the other three. The service was friendly enough but distant. Would recommend other restaurants first.
