Reviewed September 18, 2018

OK it's another Balinese restaurant in the Bali Collection Shops. But it delivers over and above some of the others. The staff we experienced were fun and friendly. The food was freshly cooked and for us as Westerners with larger appetites was more than other locations. The Bintang was as cheap as anywhere in the shopping centre, always a good point but the food and its quality and quantity made this a good choice,

This restaurant has opened since our last trip to Bali on a site which has seen a number of reasonable restaurants fail. The service and food were good at reasonable prices, but a special mention has to be made of their calamari, we went back more than once just to order it

We ordered the seafood platter, and we like it. The shrimp was overcooked a bit, but overall it's okay. We love the calamari though!

The staff that greeted us was nice. But I remember asking another staff a replacement for spoon/straw (do not really remember) because the one they gave us is broken. But we have to call 3 different people and nobody bring us that spoon until the end.

Right on the corner of the East Gate of Bali Collection. We went a few times and always sat at the corner table outside under the trees and lanterns, overlooking the shops and the bustling street below. The staff were incredible, they were so lovely and very efficient, and checked on us just the right amount. Vitri was especially nice. We loved their large, cold pitchers of Bintang and tried quite a few of their dishes too. Everything was yummy with good portion sizes, and very reasonably priced. We will definitely go back next year. It is also only a couple of hundred meters from the beach, and a lot of the shuttle buses will drop you at the East Gate if you ask them to.
