“Really amazing food, with beautiful surroundings.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Have to keep it short, as having breakfast at the same place. We had dinner last night, but sat on the deck in front of the restaurant facing the ocean. Food was simply flavorful and fresh and fantastic.

“Stunning setting and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is like an oasis north of Sengiggi. I must admit that it is very western in its overall style, but with really nice touches of 'Lombok'. The food was very good and we thought we would have been really slugged price wise given the facilities and service but they were pretty much charging the same prices as restaurants and definitely worth the 1500rup taxi ride up the road!

“Our best meal in Lombok!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

We went to Quali (in Qunci villas) for dinner at sunset (the sun sets at about 5.45 in Lombok so get there early) and it was amazing! The sun set right in front of us, descending behind Bali's Mt Agung. We got a seat on the wooden boardwalk right by the beach, with the surf rushing right toward us. The lighting and the ambience was beautiful and brought out the best of the amazing setting. The designer had the brilliant idea of floodlighting the waves, so the whole time while we were dining we could see the white surf rushing in (like the horses in Lord of the Rings :) And when the sun had set - the canopy of stars overhead (without any city ambient lighting interfering) was spectacular - you could see thousands of stars. It was truly a magical setting - what more could one ask for?

With all that, the food did not disappoint at all, and was the perfect counterpoint to the view. The quality was fantastic and we enjoyed every bite. And the price of this unforgettable experience? Less than US$40 for 2!!

Tip: There are a limited number of tables on the boardwalk so either go early or make reservations. Even if you're not staying in Qunci, go experience a sunset dinner there!

Dear Ginichao,

Thank you for your kind review – and your comment for guests to get here early (or call for a reservation) since tables on the beach front are limited. We have 150+ meters of beachfront at Qunci Villas but we dont squeeze tables together to pack guests in.

And as you also say, at the end of the day the atmosphere is important but it is the food that is ultimately the most important part of your experience. We are glad that, as you say, the food was *perfect *.

Happy Travels and we hope to see you back in Lombok again soon!

“Came for lunch.....came back next day to stay the night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We came for lunch at Quali Restaurant inside the Quinci Villa Resort, after we enjoyed our meals we asked to be shown a room. On the way out we booked for our last night in Lombok...magical.
The service that this resort provides is exceptional we didn't go wanting for anything all our needs were met. Cant wait to go back.

“Great Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

I ate here several times. It's location, by the sea in the Qunci Villas, is excellent with several tables adjacent to the beach and other a bit further back. The food was generally very good and reasonably priced. While the menu had a number of Asian choices, to my disappointment the number of Indonesian choices was quite limited.

Dear pjlv07b,

Yes, the setting here on the beach is a real strong draw for our restaurant. That being said, we also take great pride in the fact that our food is also very good, as you note.

As for the limited number of Indonesian dishes:

First, I would like to point out to future guests that we have 2 restaurants. You ate at Quali which specializes in Asian Seafood dishes. By definition this would include some Indonesian dishes but not be a primarily Indonesian menu as we cover dishes from around the region.

The other restaurant is Quah where we serve Mediterrean Food “with a Lombok Twist”. Thus some Mediterrean fusion food, and some Indonesian dishes as well.

So there are more Indonesian dishes on offer at the other restaurant.

That being said, there also a lot of very good Indonesian restaurants in town so we have decided to focus our energies and culinary skills over a wider and more diverse menu.

Happy Eating!!
