“Good food but service is not good”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

This was recommended by our driver tour guide. We ordered. The food turnout to be fairly good, above our expectations. We ordered Indonesian Tapas (a little oily) soto ayam and nasi bakar (special of the day). I guess their specialty is Indonesian cuisine.

“Over Priced and Bland.”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The service was very poor and slow. I had a Kobe Beef Burger and my wife had Lontong Complete. Neither of these dishes had any flavour. Very expensive cotton wool. The local small beach warungs could teach these guys how to cook and serve people. Fancy words and promotions need to be backed up with exceptional food and smart service. Seems to be the place to be seen if you are an expat.

“Pretty average”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

My husband had the chicken with Indonesian spices I had the prawns. The prawns were overcooked, the chicken also. Unimpressed. The fresh lime juice was good though.

“Fresh and relaxing”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had heard about this cafe and hadn't realised that I it is opposite Hardys Supermarket . We had a selection of entrees and nasi goring ,a beer and two watermelon drinks . It came to about $30 (Australian) which is more expensive than the beach cafés. But it was worth it. Fresh , clean , tasty food. The menu is extensive if you wanted to really try some beautiful dishes that are a bit different. Well worth it.
