“Good food; wait time long”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Came on a Friday night but it was only 1/4 full. Ordered a salad and a Balinese curry. Drinks came straight out and were good (mint iced tea was very refreshing) but food took thirty minutes to come out. Would have been okay if the place was full, but it wasn't. Not by a long shot. Otherwise, good portion sizes, value, atmosphere and service.

“Nice place to chill & snack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Went here once a few months back and had the delicious pumpkin soup. Tried the cocktail, can't remember which one but it was a little bit pricey (100rb ++), it tasted ok.
I'd love to see more options in the menu. Mantra is a nice quiet place to chill and have a little bite.

“Food okay, very bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We were having dinner with our parents. The food was okay (considering the fair price), but the service was extremely bad and we will definitively never come back again. A good place for very young people who don't care too much about what they are eating. The location itself is quite fancy and cool

“Very bad service but nice food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We are here today and kind of knew something was wrong when we arrived. All the front tables were full and no-one was eating. We had to get our own menu , ask to order and our drinks came out after probably 20 mins, one first then ten mins later the other one. We were starving and still no-one had meals so kinda knew we'd be in for a wait. I ended up ordering a coffee which I had to retrieve myself because I saw it sitting on the counter waiting to be brought out. We asked how long the food would be to which they replied 10 mins. We decided to stock around and after about another 40 mins one meal came out. My husband had long finished his when mine came about another 40 mins later. Our poor daughter then had to wait another 20 mind for hers. The food was lovely but the lack of service wrecked it. They looked like they were understaffed and the people there didn't seem to know what they were doing. Such a shame for what might have been lovely. It was a public holiday and they were one of the only places open to eat so maybe they got caught with the rush. The staff were nice and apologetic but I wouldn't bother if you are hungry.

“A limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

One thing I noticed about my stay in Bali this time around is that every wait staff diligently repeated our order back to us - except for this restaurant, and they got the order wrong, bringing more food than we ordered, which we had to pay for, and I couldn't eat the paella - too salty and with parmesan cheese ? Otherwise cute quirky warong.
