“Expected more”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had read enticing reviews of this place, though overall was left wanting a little more.
Unnecessarily we had booked a table, arriving around 1930 hrs the were only two other tables occupied. It did fill up more as the night progressed (Saturday night).
Lovely setting and well appointed decor. The band ? Mariachi were novel and entertaining for about half an hour then became rather irritating.
Anyhew overall the food was just OK and considering that the price was rather expensive in comparison to other Sanur options, was somewhat disappointing.
The lobster bisque was thick and seemed to have coagulated and was screaming out for a little
salt. The river prawns seemed to have suffered the same fate and too begged for seasoning.
The friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere ( minus the Mariachi band) made for an overall enjoyable evening, however improved attention the the finer detail could go a long way. Would i go back? well...Tastier prawns to be had in unassuming locations on the beach nearby.

“Great service, good menu but is expensive - most expensive restuarant in sanur”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great attentive service as mentioned by other viewers. I particularly like the small chair they give you to place your handbag - a nice touch. We choose items from the pricer end of the menu i.e. the wagyu steaks, couple that with a bottle of Wolf Blass Presidents and the bill came came 1.3m rupiah - about UK£85. Steaks were lovely, cooked perfectly and the mash was creamy with a lovely hint of garlic. I did try their scallop starter and would not recommend this - it was two very small scallops indeed with a tiny small salad between them and for the price they charge would have expected more - also, I don't think the scallops were very fresh as 24 hours later I had the dreaded bali belly.

“So good”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

So good we went back the next night and ordered the same dish,
great service ambience and food. I'm not a fan of the travelling band as entertainment but if you ignore them they don't come to your table. They can be fun if you are in a larger group.

“Deservedly top of the list”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Delightful restaurant with great service, excellent food and nice ambience. Live music the night we were there from a small group that provided great background music without being intrusive. Not a party spot, but the place to go for a great meal in Sanur
