Had lunch there in between dives and was amazed by the nice environment. I remembered sitting on the 2nd floor, enjoying the nice breeze and the tasty juice. Price is quite affordable, given the quality of the food. The staff is very helpful and friendly as well. Highly recommend this place to others.

Visited today and had the pizzas, savoury croissant and chocolate milkshakes. Food was so good, great price and the staff were really nice. Lots of fans which is nice as the island is so hot.

If you dont care about bad service and not good quality of food this place is for you. Menu that we get was couple of combined papers that has ten million food or drink drops on it. No idea how you can give such dirty paper to your customer as a menu. Finally the price is not fair according to... More

After reading all these raving reviews, my wife and I decided to give it a go. We were looking for something else than the inevitable rice and chicken/beef/fish grill. First the positive: nice location with views from the top floor overlooking the ocean and the food market. Nice quite place, as far as we can tell a pretty rare thing... More

The restaurant is clean, the wine glasses are spotless, and the food/wine is amazing. The owner/chef came out to explain the wine as there was a language issue with the server and it only got better from there. The pasta was cooked perfectly, the 4 cheese was amazing, the bruschetta was insane, and the wine was the best tasting on... More

The place to eat in if you want to escape Indonesian food for a while and try some proper Italian cuisine. Rigatoni all amatriciana and quattro formaggi where great. Also the view of the night market is cool in the evening. Prices ok.

Enjoyed the refurbishment and ate here at least once a day . The food has always been great and very affordable. The new upstairs restaurant is the spot to enjoy the true italian pasta and ocean view.
