“Yum, Yum, Yummy!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We wanted a change from the wonderful Balinese food and Balique fit the bill perfectly. The restaurant looks amazing and I am in love with the giant light fixtures in the center of the ceiling.

Our hotel had made reservations for us and we were seated immediately when we arrived. The menu has a mix of Western food and there is a child menu available. The staff was very fast and very nice. We chose the filet which was very well priced ($20). The food was amazing. The ambiance inside this restaurant is great, the food is great, and the prices are great too.

Actually, we enjoyed it so much, we went back the next day! Highly recommend!

“Nice atmosphere with good food”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went here for dinner after reading many suggestions on TripAdvisor. We were lucky at the time as we had not made any reservation but managed to seat on the last available table. The atmosphere of the restaurant is really nice. It was raining a bit a the time so the air was just right, but I can imagine on dryer season or in hot day it can be pretty hot there. I could really appreciate the effort to build the place as you find many unique decorations inside.

The restaurant was very busy and only few staff available. However once we managed to get attention of one of the waiters, he really served us well. We ordered nasi goreng and mie goreng, both local dishes. We enjoyed our food and the taste and quality suited the price. The remarks were only they felt a little oily and also considered small to most customers I guess.

At the end of the meal, we really liked the place and recommended another friend who came to Jimbaran looking for good place to eat. Would come back again to try other menu they have.

“Good chill out place, great cocktails”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We visited there after dinner for quick relaxing drinks. The place is good mixed of antique decorations and beautiful clean restrooms. We enjoyed our cocktails and free shrimp ships there. We ordered French fired but it was too oily fired.

Overall, we love the place, relaxing one.

Having read the reviews on TA I was very disappointed with the restaurant. We had almost been built up with too much excitement and then the bubble burst.
I didn't find the environment upto much.
Service was poor and slow. They only had 1 menu for 5 of us to look at, fortunately, we looked at it in the afternoon previously and had mostly decided.
Can't poor beer, they never tipped the glass sideways.
My Tom Yam soup was fine but leg of lamb was not really as described. Would have be better calling it a stew. Naan bread and couscous was cold on delivery which they reluctantly took away to microwave!!!
On returning the the hotel i was unwell
I wouldn't recommend it

“Incredible !!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

This was one of our best meal in Bali.
Lovely host, informative, courteous and professional waiter. The athmosphere is vintage chic and very detailed decoration.
We loved the filet mignon with green pepper sauce !
