“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We had high hopes for this restaurant given the reviews and Lonely Planet write up. The ambiance was beautiful but everything else went down hill. The seafood was over cooked for the high prices. As self proclaimed foodies, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed higher quality food and just as beautiful ambiance down the road at a "regular" beachside restaurant. Do not waste your money here!

“luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Stayed 3 nights loved everything! Food, view , villa, location. Brilliant stay. Organised a glass bottom boat to snorkel between the islands just for our family. Was a perfect relaxing getaway from Bali. Highly recommend even if is a bit pricey. Only negative is both bedrooms had king beds so one of our ten age kids had to sleep on a matress on the floor.

“Amazing restaurant on a tiny island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

This place isn't the best restaurant I've ever been to....but they do have VERY good food and a professional staff and the fact that they pull this off on a tiny island in the middle of Indonesia is amazing to me. Worth a try for a date night.

“Cherry(Berry) on top in Gili T!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We saved Ko-komo for our last dinner in Gili T and it was touch and go whether we would brave the monsoon showers in pursuit of a nice meal. However, the restaurant came highly recommended and we decided to brave it.
The Beef Tenderloin sounded so good that we ordered it for all three of us, complementing it with steamed vegetables. I thought that the food was slightly dear for Bali, but the cost of the excellent Penfolds Bin 128 Shiraz 2008 (which we could probably buy for between $60 and $80 in Australia) was priced at a whopping Rp1,400,000. Which translates to $160. OUCH!! But worth it on this special night.
After the wonderful steak we indulged in a "Tropical Fruit Meringue" (which mum bravely finished then proceeded to lick her fingers!) a "Fallen Chocolate" for hubbie and a "Tropical Fruit Basket" for me. Topped off with a glass of Cointreau this was a perfect finish for a perfect stay on Gili T.

“Nothing special, really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We read about Ko Ko Mo from Lonely Planet and internet, and that is why we were expecting so much of it...
My apetizer, the garlic bread, was burned and our both manecourses were cold. The taste of the food was very average. Considering the price, the food wasn't anything special.
