“Excellent food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This restaurant is a little out of the way but defiantly worth a visit.
On arrivals, we were greeted with a small welcome drink of a frozen daiquiri.
As we studied the menus, a complimentary canapé was also presented.
The starters were lovely, a particular mention was the bruschetta, which had presented with a plump disc of silky boccicini.
A complementary basket of warm breads was also given, and it was crusty bread, with soft fluffy interior, quite different to the dense sweet breads that you find in bali.
Mains were also excellent..the mixed ravioli was Italian .bali fusion. The little parcels were flavoursome and some really different variations.
My partner had the steak entrecôte , which he thought was excellent.

A pleasant surprise was the prices included the tax and service charge, so I thought it was excellent value for money for the quality of food.

A bonus also was the art exhibition ..plasticology..by a local artist. The arts works are made from waste, and is a brilliant narrative on the unfortunate impact of the 10,000 m3 of plastic generated in Bali everyday! The infrastructure can only deal with about 6,000m3 a day, so you can guess where the rest of it lands up. A sober reminder of our impact on the island, as so much of the waste it generated meeting the needs of tourists.

“What happened?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a lovely looking restaurant with lots of candles in the evening and nice decor. We chose it because of the good reviews on Trip advisor and delicious looking food. We were warmly welcomed by the manager and shown to our table where we received a cold drink of grapefruit juice? we think as quite sour and a spring roll.

We chose the dory fish and steak to be cooked medium. We asked for french fries but was told by the waitress sauteed potatoes or mashed, we settled for the sauteed.

What came was a small grilled fish with inedible rock hard, turned potatoes with a couple of carrots also raw and a rare steak with cubed potatoes which were boiled and not sauteed. No other vegetable. Had to send the steak back for more cooking. There were a couple of other tables with diners and what did we see them get? French fries!!! The fish was nice as was the pepper sauce for the steak but we left very disappointed. 1 cocktail which were very good and generous, and 2 mains came to over 304K.

This could be a great restaurant they just need to sort out the kitchen and have some form of quality control before sending out the food.

Based on this visit would not return

“Delicious western food of highest quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I've had a three-course dinner at Lestari. To keep it short and simple: excellent western food, high quality menues, nice and friendly service, fair prices compared to the high quality of the dishes. The ambiance is the only thing that could be improved a little bit, but is still very nice from my point of view.
Even the owner asked us for feedback which I think is showing that the restaurant cares about the customer and tries to keep the high level of quality.

“Mixed feelings about this place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant had a good location and beautiful setting inside. Nice. Service was not good, slow to take orders and forgot what we ordered, we had to remind them. Some meals were excellent (tuna tartare, ravioli and lamb leg) and others were below average (beef carpaccio) and one dish that we tried were horrible (mozarella salad). Very mixed emotions about this place.

“Great European food in great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Is not the cheapest place but they serve great food, not too big menu card which is very good. The dishes we had, starters and main dish were very well prepared and the staff was very friendly. Certainly a place to go back to!
