“Fun night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went here after being referred by someone else (for the ribs). Of course there is a million shrimp items on the menu too. We had Cajun Shrimp which was very tasty, the ribs which were awesome (sticky and delicious) and the Mahi Mahi (a deep sea fish which is excellent) topped with more shrimp. Don't go if you want a quiet night out as there is a lot of running around and noise with the Run Forest Run / Stop Forest Stop (to get a waiter) system. Service was prompt and attentive. If you ordered a special cocktail you got a staff production, song and dance and if it was a birthday celebration there was a whole conga line of staff singing, dancing and playing instruments with the birthday treat. Lots of memorabilia to enjoy from the movie. It was the most expensive meal we had in Bali at around $80 for two (inclusive of drinks and cocktails) but then that is cheap by Aussie standards. After a couple of weeks of indo food it was a refreshing, silly, fun night out. There was a shop selling T-shirts and other Bubba Gump items inside as well.

Ribs were great, the rest of it so so! Over the top waitresses (fake it till you make it is excruciating for customers) genuine service is so much more pleasant.... It seems that Bali service (in these gimmick restaurants consists of the louder the staff the better.... Mostly this comes off as VERY annoying)

Tone it down a bit guys, we don't need our arrival & departure announced to everyone!

“A Fun Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a great place for a bit of fun.

Catchy theme and you hear lots of Run Forest Run or Stop Forest Stop.

Food fresh and hot .

Peach Love Rock n Roll cocktail to die for - you may need a second just to be sure!

Cost about $60 for 2 mains, 2 cocktails, 3 non cocktails and small desert.

Gift shop to buy t/shirts, glasses, magnets etc.

“Good but but very expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Located in a busy street but the restaurant itself is very catchy. The atmosphere is good and a lot of things remind of the movie like the bench in front. Staff was really friendly.
For me the main problem was the price. There aren't any menu's in front of the restaurant so you can't see The price. Once inside you get them. Really overpriced even more then europian prices. We had to pay 75€ just for 1 apetiser, 2 drinks and 2 main courses. For me a real tourist trap. Would give a good recomendation if it would be normal priced. Doens't have to be balinesed priced but normal, not crazy...

“Great Family Night Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a fun place for the whole family, the food is very good, although quite expensive, but I didn't mine because of the quality of the food. The Mahi Mahi is delicious and the fettuccini shimp with creamy sauce was awesome.
They have the movie playing on tvs and they have a few fun gimicks to keep customers amused, especially the staff singing to you if you buy a certain cocktail, very funny.
The gift shop in the airconditioned dining area is worth a look.
Not somewhere we could afford to eat every night in Bali, but perfect for a special occasion. After dinner we went across the road to the 4D 'ride', which was a great ending to a lovely night.
