Oh my God, their margaritas are incredible. We had a lovely dinner at a table on the beach. Everything seems made from scratch from the salsa to the chips and everything in between, and is really tasty. Great fish dishes, friendly service and good value...More

Location is a bit off and the surroundings are not directly charming. The food was great though. We had the vegetarian burger and chicken enchiladas.

The food here is delicious and the kids wanted to eat dinner here every night. They had the chicken burrito with just chicken and rice and it was so flavorful. I thought the cocktails were a bit pricey and I preferred eating on the beach....More

This food is extremely good. I highly recommend the vegatrian burger, and my partner highly recommends the chicken tacos and the chocolate and cashew cake. Defiantly worth the visit for somewhere abit different to the normal Balinese restaurants.
