“Sakala Bali”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

From the time we were picked up from our hotel it was an amazing experience with some of the best food I have had anywhere in the world. The ambience, friendly service and quality of the food was sensational. Our whole evening was a sheer delight and one we shall remember. The inventiveness of my duck meal reflected the Three Star Michelin Chef's talents. I have just recommended Sakala to my daughter who is travelling to Bali later in the year - one look at my photos and she can't wait to visit. I did not think Sakala was expensive when compared to restaurants in other parts of the world. I am just sorry we did not have time to revisit before we left - if in Bali again we shall definitely make it our first restaurant stop. Thank you Sakala and staff for a devine evening. Two elderly sisters.

Dear LynneyAuckland,
I am so very pleased to hear that you and your sister enjoyed a memorable experience while visiting us. Chef also sends his appreciation for the great comments about his food and presentations.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. We will look forward to your daughter’s visit, and hopefully you and your sister again soon.
As a side note, although experienced in Michelin starred restaurants, Chef has not yet been awarded Michelin stars himself, although we think he definitely deserves it! 
Best regards,
Janick Couturier

“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The food and service at Sakala were amazing. It is a pricey restaurant for Bali but certainly worth it. The place is beautiful too. We will be visiting again before we go home.

Thank you Sakala.

“Amazing, we love Sakala”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had an awesome day and night at Sakala. We went there for lunch and could not get enough of it, so we returned for dinner. We have recommended this restaurant to many people. The service was impeccable, the food was brilliant, every mouthful a taste sensation. The restaurant's ambience is delightful at day or night and you must check out the wine cellar it is just awesome. The food and wine is well priced they put on all the added extras at no cost. We only had a few nights in Nusa Dua for a wedding otherwise we would have eaten there again. We will return to Sakala again and again next time. Thanks Sakala xxxx

“Sakala - a most memorable dining experience; very friendly service and superb food.”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

My wife, son and I were undecided whether to go to our 5-star hotel beach restaurant for dinner or try something different. The magazine ad on Sakala caught our eyes. Their driver picked us up and we were greeted by a warm and friendly staff Lena. We were ushered into a cosy and soothing dining room. We opted for the sofa tables. The appetizers were awesome and the main course was simply delicious. Deserts were equally nice especially the chocolate. Price-wise, we thought it was very pricey for a Bali restaurant.

“Our best meal in nusa dua amazing food”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We had a gorgeous meal here, lots of choice on menu and every course was delicious. First place we had seen a vegetarian menu as well although only one thing we ordered was actually vegetarian. Free pick up and drop off from our hotel was a nice touch, hope they continue when hotel adjoined is conpleted. Paid same as we had at some hotel restaurants so much better value than those. Nice setting inside and excellent service but not over the top or intimidating. Would highly recommend.

Dear Nicola G,

Both Chef and I firmly believe that a fine-dining restaurant should not be intimidating, but rather a place that makes you feel as comfortable as home yet still makes you feel like royalty!

I am very happy to hear that you have enjoyed our menu and we thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

Looking forward to see you,

Janick
