“Great service, good menu but is expensive - most expensive restuarant in sanur”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great attentive service as mentioned by other viewers. I particularly like the small chair they give you to place your handbag - a nice touch. We choose items from the pricer end of the menu i.e. the wagyu steaks, couple that with a bottle of Wolf Blass Presidents and the bill came came 1.3m rupiah - about UK£85. Steaks were lovely, cooked perfectly and the mash was creamy with a lovely hint of garlic. I did try their scallop starter and would not recommend this - it was two very small scallops indeed with a tiny small salad between them and for the price they charge would have expected more - also, I don't think the scallops were very fresh as 24 hours later I had the dreaded bali belly.

“So good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

So good we went back the next night and ordered the same dish,
great service ambience and food. I'm not a fan of the travelling band as entertainment but if you ignore them they don't come to your table. They can be fun if you are in a larger group.

“Deservedly top of the list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Delightful restaurant with great service, excellent food and nice ambience. Live music the night we were there from a small group that provided great background music without being intrusive. Not a party spot, but the place to go for a great meal in Sanur

“A very nice place, but our food was inconsistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The décor and fit-out are splendid, with tables widely spaced; good for conversation. Service was attentive, with a couple of extras; 'mise en bouche' to begin, and lemoncello liqueur to finish. A very good quartet played western music, a relief after so much Balinese plinking. Prices are higher than other local restaurants but so is the standard, and they're certainly a lot lower than what we're accustomed to in Australia.
However, our food was inconsistent. Lamb shanks and spring rolls were very good. Tomato and boconchini salad arrived with half-ripe tomatoes and third-class cheese. The chicken roll is in fact a rolled up breast with not much inside, grilled, so it's too dry and not really a successful dish.
On the whole, good, and we judged it a successful evening. But could easily be very good.
