“Lovely Restaurant and Great Food.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We returned for a meal at the Mona Lisa again this year. After our previous visits this restaurant has become one of our "must visit restaurants", and each time it meets or exceeds our expectations. The food is wonderfully cooked and beautifully presented, and the staff are always attentive and courteous. The restaurant is always full between 6.00pm - 8.00pm, so if you want to go then it is best to book a table. After 8.00pm, there are always people there, but there seems to be enough seating for the "walk-in" customer who hasn't booked.
Some reviewers don't seem to have had the positive experiences that we have. Well, sometimes things do not "gel" as hoped, especially in restaurants who are very busy. All we can say is perhaps our negative time is still coming, but it won't permanently taint our point of view about this great place.
We do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Eaten here twice this trip already, had to book table as been very full. We eat here every trip x3 per yr and never been disappointed. Very nice friendly staff and consistently good food. Highly recommended.

“try the chicken sate”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

we had the banana leaf wrapped tuna and chicken satay - both twice, once at the start of our Bali stay and once on the last day. First time was outstanding - soft, great spices. 2nd time was still very good but a bit overcooked. good place to hang out and friendly and polite staff

“Exceptional”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We keep going back to this venue whenever we are in Sanur and there is a very good reason for that. It is always a constant with excellent food, great service, good atmosphere and at very reasonable prices.

I'm not alone in my assessment. Even in May/June, which is the quiet season, you had best book in advance. Everyone has heard about this place and it is very popular.

Make the effort and book a table - you will not be disappointed.
