We had our first dinner at the MEXICO restaurant in Bli Bli. Yes we do read plenty of reviews about it and we decide to let our ego out for a bit. (Well, I'll let my rating do the talking for ya; 4.5 over 10).

We visited Chara as it was just up the road from our villa. Staff were nice, good service. The food was OK. Nothing fantastic but passable.

Different drink deals each day. E.g. Thirsty Thursday. Bintang 20k all day. Reasonable prices, food good and bean burrito great for vegans. Staff friendly. Been here for lunch and early evening. Solid good food.

Had the Wet Burrito and it was so salty, refried beans tasted like it came out of a can. Service was poor, staff was snobby and dismissive since they probably thought I'm Indonesian and only addressed my... More

First I would like to apologize that your meal wasn't to your expectations. Yours is the first complaint of anything being too salty, we make our beans and everything else fresh everyday. NOTHING is from a can. We also have had many praises about our staff being very polite and accommodating so I find it hard to believe they would... More

we went here for lunch and the food was okay but nothing special, the drinks were good though we ordered a maragita which was nice and then decided to try a mocktail which were delicious. The food wasn't expensive but it wasn't cheap either so overall it was an okay restuarant but I would not eat there again

We had dinner here last night and we're very impressed with the lovely staff members. The menu looked good and we were looking forward to our meals. We ordered two of the combination plates which included a few of each of the Mexican items. At around $10aud per plate, the servings were quite small and bland unfortunately. We would have... More

We were a table of 4. Thought we would give it a try as from the outside it looked quite good. Drinks were Ok nice and cold and cocktails well made. Menu typically as the restaurant is named Mexican and Carribean food. Service a bit slow with staff needing some training.We asked for 2 separate bills but this was ignored.... More
