“Lovely Warung Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We found this place on trip advisor and wanted to give it a try.
There was a group of six of us and we all enjoyed it. We booked on the morning of the same day. The place was full when we arrived so our food was a little slow but the service was friendly and the food was nice. We all had two courses and most people had a beer or two and the price per person came to about 70,000idr. We were all happy to put in 100,000idr and some loose change because we enjoyed the experience

“Excellent vegetarian, customized cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The vegetarian food here was amazing and there were many options in their small menu. The tea was also quite good. As for dessert, the pineapple pancake was not so good; maybe because we stuffed ourselves so much with dinner (we ate three meals between two of us the food was so delicious and then ordered dessert). The seating is outdoors so wearing insect repellant is good idea. The menu is very cheaply priced.The food is fresh and made with love.

“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

What a find this was. This tiny family run restaurant is very popular, so book ahead. They don't have many tables. The food is simple, well prepared and delicious - also very reasonably priced. The owner and his wife, who does the cooking are absolutely delightful. Do try it.

“Great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We called in on the way back to our villa one afternoon to enquire about a dinner booking. We got chatting to Putu and organised a special dinner for the following evening which included her duck speciality. We were not disappointed, the setting was wonderful, just 4 discreet tables, simple and charming. We were served by Putu and her family and the banquet they had prepared for us was fresh, beautifully prepared and tasty. The restaurant is very small so you should book. This was a memorable night and I am sure I will be back.

“Yummy Duck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We ordered the duck feast that included satays, curry, vegetables and of course the smoked duck that took all day to prepare. The smoked duck simply fell off the bones, delicious. The restaurant is tiny, only three tables, the setting is quaint and the owner is a delight and all very affordable. One of the best meals I had in Bali.
