“Try Upstairs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

This place has a great feel - we decided to eat upstairs on the balcony and it was very comfortable with a nice view down Jalan Kartika Plaza.
The seating isn't always practical for a sitdown meal with big but very comfortable couches where you can easily settle in for a long while.

The food is excellent, one of the best meals we had on our recent holiday. Great range of dining options and reasonably priced for the quality. Indonesian dishes are especially good.

“GABAH RESTAURANT - KUTA BALI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

I am a regular visitor to Bali. Most of the time during our visits my friends & I will eat at the local restaurants.
One of our close Balinese friend invited & hosted lunch on out last visit on Wed. 28 Aug. 2013. The waitress attending to us Aprillia suggested us to order The Royal Kingdom" a local Balinese fare which serves for 4 persons. We were took her suggestion & we thoroughly enjoyed the meal which actually could have served for 6. It was really an experience we would not have had at the local restaurants. I strongly recommend those who are planning to visit Bali to try out this restaurant. It's located in Kuta & managed & owned by the Ramayana Hotels.

“Great food, quite impractical, lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

The restaurant is in a beautiful setting with interesting features all around. It is really very romantic at the tables between the pool and the mini rice paddies and the small water feature in the middle. The food was really very good but the presentation made it rather difficult to eat it effectively. It was definitely one of the most expensive meals we had and I could have done without all of the theatre but it was al delicious. Definitely performance on a plate.

“Best meal we had in Bali ever by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We both had an Indonesian dish and it was probably the tastiest food I've ever eaten. We were surprised at what came out but very pleasantly surprised. If you eat here don't get the Western food as the local food was definitely worth trying.
It wasn't over cheap compared to other places, but it was defiantly worth the slight extra we paid.

“Excellent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

I would like to thank all at the Gabah Restaurant and Bar for the most enjoyable experience whilst dining at this restaurant. All the staff went out of their way to be of service.

We would like to make an extra special mention though of one particular young man named Bogart Harna Kapinda. Bogart to the initiative to introduce himself early on during our stay at the resort and to take time out to ask us if all was well and to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves.

Bogart was very professional and very diligent in all areas of service. The atmosphere was very different when Bogart was on duty in the restuarant and around the pool. People of all ages loved his interaction and great attitude towards work and life. We enjoyed sitting watching him with the guests and more importantly loved the time we spent around the pool and in the restuarant when Bogart was there.

We would like for to pass out heart felt thanks into him.
