We’ve just had the most fabulous meal at The Sawah. This isn’t the first time I’ve eaten rijstaffel but this surely is the best! The setting too is lovely and we enjoyed the elegant surroundings. Thank you!

We made a reservation for their Javanese Rijsttafel for dinner. We arrived a bit earlier to walk round the surrounding field and feel the breeze against our face and breathe in the fresh air. One feels a sense of calmness walking through the field which...More

Thank you for your lovely and extensuve review, sweet girls. The power blackout was really a short incident. Or do you encourage us to do it on purpose with every dinner guest/group, to enhance tropical ambience? 😊 Regards, Wim

PLEASE NOTE: ADVANCE BOOKING is STRICTLY NECESSARY, minimum 1 day ahead. 'Cooking after booking' is our motto: we are not a normal restaurant but a beautiful private villa. Our ONLY and highly appreciated menu is our RIJSTTAFEL (rice table), with about 10 different Javanese dishes. The name rijsttafel is Dutch, the food is totally Indonesian ;-) - Price: Rp 150.000/pax all in
