“Really awful service, but good food”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Service isn't always the most important thing for me, I'm a food guy. But when the staff behaves in such bad manners, it ruins the whole experience. I was here on recommendation, and the waiter barely wanted to communicate. When asked what the ingredients in the indonesian chicken salad was, his answer was "vegetables". When asked what vegetables, the reply was "eehhh.. cucumber and tomato". It turned out that there was no cucumber and tomato in the salad at all, haha. The food was good, though.

When I went to the front desk to pay and complain about the waiter I got the same bad attitude. Sorry guys, but this doesn't cut it, and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go here. Too bad.

“Crab Dopayaza”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

The food at April 20 was delicious. So much so we ate there twice in a week and finished our holiday with a meal here. The crab dopayaza special is truly special - delicious spicy, coconut creamy with lots of nuts and crab meat. This place felt like a proper restaurant in comparison to the other beach front restaurants. You can see the kitchen and it looked very clean which is comforting in a country where it is easy to get sick. The fresh strawberry daiquiri was very good as well, compared to other bars selling cocktails. Be prepared to book a couple of days before around high season, especially New Year.
