Staying nearby and walked into this chic restaurant, the staff were friendly and spoke good English. They were quick to serve and the drinks were bought out immediately followed by the food a short time later. Reasonable price and after two visits found the calamri pepes CamI, was simply delish and worth the taste, I agree it was like a Parisian cafe of old in Paris.

Love the interior - vintage paraphernalia - and love the colour scheme, soothing. The food was always OK, not cheap, sometimes bland.
But the real problem's service. No one greeted me when I arrived at the restaurant and every time we wanted to ask the servers about the things on the menu we had to wait.. The servers were not attentive tho they're nice.
Been to this place several times, but I don't see the improvement. Too bad.

Very cool "plantation" setting, good service, the Illy coffee and white sangria were excellent, and the best thing we had on the menu was the snapper entree...great sauce. Not super cheap, but still a great value for what you get.

Good Indonesian food, delicious mezze and tapas :). The atmosphere nice,but very long service. We waited 45 mins for fried rice & sauted chicken. When we entered the restaurant no one greeted us for 5mins. Servers are really nice but it just takes too long to eat there.

I couldn't rave more about this place. I recently got married in Bali and had 64 attendees, whom of which I invited to my rehearsal dinner in this most amazing location. Sandra was the dream manager who helped me out with just about everything to make this a night to remember. I couldn't have chosen a better menu, which included everything from lobster bisque, chicken sate, shrimp, filet, and a huge favorite coconut panacotta. Everybody was impressed and full by the the time the speeches and slideshow began. The staff was very helpful and we just loved their overalls that they wore. The decor was more than impressive and I can't wait to get our photos back from the professional photographer. When I return to Bali from America, I will definitely make this place a MUST REVISIT on my list. Thank you Balique for all of your efforts to making this one of my dream nights!!! I recommend this place to just about everybody who wants great food, service, quality, ambience, and a special place to remember.
