“For all vegaquarians - this place is for you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I would recommend the smoked sardines for entree - fabulous. The whole grilled fish (Jimbaran Style) was my choice on the menu and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Others at my table were envious as I understand the pasta was not all that special and the Kingfish was overcooked but the risotto fantastic. The most outstanding feature of this restaurant is the venue, however, on a hot night it is a little stifling on the main deck and the fans offer no reprieve.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Disappointing after a big wrap from others. No atmosphere at front of restaurant where we dined, better to get a table at back where there is a view of rice paddy's. Food ok, oysters disappointing. Pricey.

“Would much rather be elsewhere..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

This was recommended to me by a close friend for being the new 'spot' for dining in Bali.. From start to finish we were disappointed.

Maybe it was that our expectations were high coming from having a drink at metis... Or had a bad taste in my mouth from having a 8:30p res and not getting seated til 9 (on a monday)

The food was very, very average. Nothing about ANY of the dishes were unique. Had better food the night before in Jimbaran..

Would only go back if someone invited me. Plenty of other places in this price point.

“MY FAVOURITE DINING EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This was the first time I've dined at Sardine in all my Bali visits & I think I've found a new favourite. Gorgeous food, beautiful setting & outstanding service. More than your average price point but well worth it! A must do on my list for each trip now

“Great food in a picturesque setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

A gorgeous restaurant set amongst a rice paddy. A lovely ambiance. Excellent food - mainly a seafood restaurant, but with a few meat dishes.
Excellent service but the setting was the highlight. Highly recommended. Would definitely come back here.
