“Expensive, lazy inattentive waitresses, bland dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

What a disappointment! I heard so much about this place, nice setting (apart from the cars driving past) the meal for two cost $80!!!! With 1 glass of wine. Seriously guys, have a look at how well ultimate restaurant is doing and learn from the best.
Waiting for tables to be cleared felt like a cheap economy airline with plates sitting the empty. The menus look tired and outdated, the seating is a bit 80s and compared to
A lucciola who had 14 staff to wait on tables 2 staff on a saturday night is just not good enough.
The waitress asked me how my meal was, I said it was less than average, she smiled and made no adjustment to the extortionate bill, nor did she apologize or even offer a random desert or something. Also, by the way, who offers nuts and bread with pure pesto as an appetizer per meal???? What's going on???? My last evening in Bali and sadly the worst experience ,go to ultimo if y want great Italian and service, go to la lucciola for great breakky and I sanely good service, go to Chandis for Indonesian...give this place a wide birth unless you want to waste money on average food with lazy service!

“Old school in the cosmopolitant areas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We went there for some dessert and mocktails after having had some diner in the neighborhood cafe just to experience the well-known place. It was not busy but the waitress directed us to a table where she likes instead of following our preference. At this stage, we ended up on a table side by side with two romance couples, which is inconvenient for us and, of course, for themselves.

The dessert our colleague ordered was great and we love the mocktails for both the taste and presentation. Thanks to the waitress who served us some peanuts while we're waiting for the drink to arrive on our table. The sequence is acceptable and quite efficient.

Unfortunately, the cost of a mocktail at IDR 55,000 excluding tax & vat was just too much for a casual dining accompanied by the sound of the hectic Petitenget main road.

“Very expensive and lacklustre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The garden eating area at the Living Room is pretty decorated with enticing fairy lights - although as we were leaving and went inside the restaurant, we would have preferred to have been ushered indoors as the room was stunning, although both lacked atmosphere. Our food was good enough, but unmemorable and so pricey we would not visit again.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The living room is a lovely restaurant in the tradional style, indoor outdoor eating. Great atmosphere and lovely inside. Food is european/french style with some indonesian inluences. Our meals were very good and reasonably priced, gets more expensive if wine ordered. The night we went was very quiet and staff were very attentive.
