Description: Stylish time-honoured family fusion restaurant combines a bland of Indonesian, Southeast Asian influences, classic Russian and Australia's strong ties with Japan are reflected. It's a great chill out place for having a round of boutique cocktails to celebrate a special occasion. You'll be sure to be welcomed with a smile at Simple.

Some meals are too spicy, but the overall rate is very good!

We travelled during low season so unfortunately there were never many people in the restaurant - but good food and nice staff

I can't imagine that anyone would purposely set out to eat at this place. I found myself there with a group as it was getting late and someone made a snap decision and this place was across the road from our hotel. Ambience is OK, typical of middle of the road restaurants of it's type all over Bali. High pitched roof open to the street; bar kitchen & other amenities to the other end. The menu was a little surprising as it contained as many Russian dishes (written in Russian) as it did Balinese. Service was OK, drinks presented after a small wait & then orders taken. Our food arrived after a longish pause and while it was received politely, the underlying disasisfaction was palpable. Put simply it was not good enough, poorly presented and meagre in it's portions.

Of course all this wasn't helped by the extremely intoxicated bear of a Russian two tables away who chuffed on three hookah's during our meal & then assumed our night would be vastly improved by imposing his personality on our group.

So if you find yourself at the front steps of Bali Heart, refer to the heading of this report. Bumbu Bali is a bit down the road but definitely a better option than this place.
