CharMing serves Indonesian and French inspired fusion meals for a cheap price. We found the atmosphere of the place great, the staff were friendly, professional and attentive and the food was great.
After we ordered, our drinks arrived along with complimentary dips, vegetables and bread, which was needed as the food took a while to arrive. The food, however, was well worth the wait. I ordered baked crusted Tasmanian salmon, which came with mash and some blanched vegetables. The salmon’s crusting had lots of flavour and the mash was smooth, cheesy and herby.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who would like a great meal for a reasonable price.

At CharMing we had foie gras entre for A$10 and salmon encrusted with nuts for A$12, Lobster soup for A$6.Truly Suberb! We spent A$70 for 4 with drinks.

Watch out for the free dips and the lemoncello - it knocks your socks off you! Great way to finish a meal.

Really small price to pay for good food compared to Aust.

We went to CharMing a couple of times and had a good experience on both occasions. The staff were friendly and attentive (without creating claustrophobia), the decor and general ambiance is also very nice. Although open (or at least semi-open) on three sides, the restaurant is pleasantly cool even on hot and sticky nights. A pick-up / drop-off service from our hotel, which was included in the price, was also a convenient way to handle our visit.

The food is very nice. The first night I had seared beef to start, followed by tuna steaks; the second tuna carpaccio, followed by John Dory fillets. All were very nice and having also tasted my wife's prawn rolls, my assumption is that most things on the menu are equally good. It might be nice to have a slightly wider range of starters, particularly if you are looking to avoid any non-cooked options, but that is probably a minor point. The assortment of French chocolates for dessert is very nice.

The wine list could be more extensive (dominated by Australian and a few Californian options) and perhaps cheaper, but this is a general Balinese issue in our experience. Again this is not a major problem and we were able to find perfectly nice options.

If you are based in Sanur, CharMing should be at the top of your list of eateries and I would also suggest that it is worth a trip from elsewhere on the island.
