“8.4/10 -- Not Amazing, but Still Worth It!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We ate at Asmara for one night while staying 7 nights in Senggigi. It was a bit more expensive than other places along the strip (**you can always gauge how expensive a restaurant is based upon comparing the price of a large Bintang with other restaurants. Seriously, it's a great food-market indicator!). The quality of the food was good, the staff was very attentive, and it's far back enough from the road that street vendors won't hassle you throughout dinner. So, food and dining atmosphere is nice.

They also have a free taxi service to take you back to your hotel after your meal, which is a nice touch! This was a restaurant that was very good (we had no complaints!), but was not quite good enough to make us go back a second time. Worth a visit though, if you're unsure! We tried several of the restaurants across the road, and they were not as good (despite being cheaper).

Pros: food, location, service, free taxi
Cons: price is slightly higher than others

Overall: 8.4/10

“Friendly Staff”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I went here quite late with friends but they were still quite crowded. It's located near the hotel where I stayed.
People clearly enjoyed their time there cos I saw people dancing to the record played hehe..
The staff was friendly, he can recommend which drink you would enjoy more according to your preference but the drink itself was just so so. I didn't order any food and only stayed for an hour or so but it was not bad.

“Great Food & Attentive Staff”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Lots of local, Asian and European options. Staff were excellent.

Lots of nice little touches - like an anti mosquito incense at your feet etc.

Definitely worth checking out.

“Lovely decor, food good but pricey.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We had a mix of western (German) food and local food. The local food was amazing and the western food a bit odd, just not quite right. But when in Indonesia you should be rating local anyway. It costs a bit more than other places due to the set up but it is a lovely place to enjoy dinner. Staff were friendly and attentive.

The place was totally full and we got the last table so that tells you it must be good.

Also important for Asia the toilets were super clean and very nice.

“Good, honest food with very friendly service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Eating outdoor is always a pleasure. Especially when the service is this friendly and the food non-pretencious and good.
