This restaurant really deserves all the good comments that they got so far. I just want to thank the owner for doing a such great work. When you see how involve she and her husband are, no wonder that the food is excellent (cooked by the husband) and the service top notch for a warung. We really had a good time and enjoy our dinner. Thank you!

“Great food and even greater desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

A very nice place with excellent food! Cream caramel here has become a part of Bali that I’ll never forget. It was so delicious that I did come back there just for the cream. Other dishes were also nice, the curry is not to spicy, so I enjoyed it a lot.

What a fantastic experience - The food was so tasty and the service was friendly and overall a great place to have a wonderful meal. The place is only small so it would pay to book. Highly recommended

“A restaurant that you should not miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

It's a pleasant dining which you can enjoy good foods and need not to pay a pretty penny like others "famous" and top-rating restaurant in Bali. (^__^). In fact, based on the foods and service quality, it's inexpensive, indeed.

We came across this place via multiple good online review. It's true enough that you will be leaving disappointing if you didn't book your table in advance.

The overall ambience of this little cozy café is lovely and you will feel at home or dining in a friend's loft. It's located at a "first floor building" and run by a lovely "international couple"- who are from Laos and France. Phil is the man the great chef and Geraldine, the most friendly host we ever have. Besides the hosts, the staffs themselves make you a VVIP when dine in the warung.

Good foods, Delicious Desserts (must have the cream caramel with coconut milk!), Warm greeting, Sincere welcome, Great service, Tourist-friendly-prices (included those with small budget) ....oh dear, we simply love the atmosphere and everything there. No wonder they are rated the top in Bali. Awesome!!

Keep up the good job Phil and Geraldine. Looking forward to see you again. Wish we could meet in Kuala Lumpur (*__^).

Been here for twice, 1stly for dinner and 2ndly for lunch .
Had to book the table for sure, cuz the restaurant always full !
The owners, Ibu Geraldine and her husband were reaaaallly friendly and nice to us.
The staff were really helpful, sincere and friendly .
They really understand the menu and could explain it to us clearly.
The food oh my GOD so delish !
The dessert you should try CREME CARAMEL .
For food, i love Super Spicy Marlin Coco Curry Noodle .
And my fav drink is VIRGIN MOJITO (without alcohol).
Prices are very reasonable .
Would definitely back here again with fam or friends <3
