Nice restaurant in a bit of a deserted shopping mall. Great service, excellent food. Lovely peaceful views of tropical garden and pool. Air conditioned which was lovely.

“Nice choice for Balinese cuisine...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

My wife and I came here for dinner a couple for days ago. I had a shredded chicken appetizer and we both had grilled fish dishes in banana leafs. Supposedly, all the dishes at Topeng are authentic Balinese and they were quite good. The service was excellent... We had a newer waiter so he wasn't familiar with all aspects of the food.
The restaurant was a little dead for 7:30 on a Saturday in a tourist area.
The food was reasonably priced with our mains coming in less than 10 dollars Canadian.

“Terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

This is one of the restaurants at the hotel we stayed. The hotel was wonderful and the service very good. However, the restaurant was a major disappointment.
Firstly, we waited more than 15 min to be served soup. Then, all o a sudden all the soups and main dishes arrived, there was no space at the table, by the time we finished the soup, the main dishes have already gone cold. Secondly, they confused the orders. Thirdly, we asked for non spicy dishes but got super spicy food. On top of everything, it was not exactly cheap.

“Thanks Jack the cocktails where great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

We had cocktails here and Jack makes and presents great cocktails happy hour between 5-7pm helps of course.

We decided to stay for dinner and had the set Balinese fish and meat set menus to share between two for the four of us. Great idea as you get to taste everything and it was very well presented and fresh and we all enjoyed it. Price was good for what you got. Service excellent the waiters knew the dishes and able to explain in great detail. Tea and coffee was included but we decided to have espresso styles which once agin Jack did not let us down he knows how to make great coffee as well. Well worth a visit if you are in Jimbaran.

“creative food, excellent service, expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Been there in August. Celebrated family member' birthday.

Food, wine, service - everything was excellent! Food was cooked to perfection, very tasty, and beautifully presented.

Table decoration, table clothes, glassware, tableware, cutlery - everything was impeccable.

The restaurant is rather expensive, even according to the world standards. Be ready to pay about 45-60 USD per person for food and about 60-90 USD per bottle of wine. Portions are rather small, so you can sample more positions from their menu.

Would definitely recommend it to a friend.

KKB_Management, Manager at Topeng Rijstaffel and Balinese Cuisine - Jimbaran, responded to this review, January 4, 2014
Dear Alex_Sb,

Thank you for your review of Topeng Restaurant!

I must inform you that we have changed the concept of Topeng, which now serves Balinese Cuisine and Rijstaffel. Our prices are rather affordable: The Rijstaffel for 2 persons costs approximately 25$.

We have also added a great new feature as there is now a swimming pool in our garden, free of charge for all Topeng guests.

Please note that it is also possible to order the food from Chocolate Café in Topeng.

I hope you will have the chance to try our new concept soon!

Best regards from Jimbaran,

Thibaud
