A bit like sitting in a family's dining room, this little place that seats about 16, was a great find. We were warmly welcomed by Ibu Putu, whose passion this warung clearly is. It's a small but well- chosen menu. I'm sure there cooks were locovores long before it became a concept. The food was prepared and presented rustically, mostly... More

The food is great and the prices are low for such quality food. The owners are the cooks. They are very friendly and speak good English. I'm going back!

Loved by the whole of our family, this friendly warung had it all - great home-cooked food, a warm welcome and attentive service from Putu and her family. The smoked duck feast is highly recommended - order 24 hours in advance.

The food was marvelous, the atmosphere was really great. The ordered meals were perfectly prepared, maybe the menu doesn't contain dozens of different mains or desserts, but that's not McDonald's.. Products are fresh, nicely matched. Ice made from bottled water. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone willing to spend a great evening.

Traditional style cuisine, well presented and tasty! Putu had reduced the spiciness to suit our newbie western palate... Very friendly staff and incredibly patient. Great price as well. It is a little bit tucked away, keep going!! but definitely worth the trip

Thank newengland07
