Usually have a good meal. This time not so. Had terrible service- waited much tooooo long. My husbands burger was mushy ?!? My chicken /rib combo was mediocre.

The pineapple cheese cake was fantastic. The lobster thermadore was huge and delicious. I did not like tha fact that it had frozen vegetables served instead of fresh. Over, the evening was great.

Had a melon colada that was delicious and potstickers that were also very good. The sate with peanut sauce was a disappointment. The chicken was rubbery and lacked any seasoning. The peanut sauce tasted watered down. The place was not very clean including really dirty menus. Also the shops were only accessible when you asked one of the restaurant workers... More

A little expensive but overall a pretty good place. Food was good and although I can only speak about the one time I was there I thought the waitstaff were very nice and professional.

There are a handful of "I know I can go here any day for a good meal" restaurants on the Dutch side of the island and this is one of them. It has a diverse menu from wraps to filet mignon and it's reasonably priced. It's also far enough down the "strip" that parking isn't a huge issue; you'll park... More

Had read reviews before trip and looked like a nice place for lunch. Went there for a quick lunch, not crowded at all, so service was great and fast. Decent food, we just got the coconut shrimp and chicken sate with Indonesian peanut sauce. Food was decent, but I've had better peanut sauces in Bali. Drinks were wonderful and I... More

We had been told to go to Pineapple Pete if we were every in the area and we are glad we did. The place looks like a little hole in the wall but when you walk in it's a lot bigger than you think. The decor is very funky and the food was delicious. If you are looking for a... More

This was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and at a good price point. I had the salmon and my husband had the seafood linguine. We loved it. It is a very fun atmosphere with live music. A must try.
