Very nice local menu. We had wild rice, an excellent roast veg soup with lime and lemongrass overtones, a dish made from coconut and banana flowers and a chicken dish. The chicken was average and probably not worth the difference in price (70,000 rather than 50,000). Chicken seems to be very costly in Moni for some reason. Apparently fish would be available, but not when my girlfriend (who doesn't eat meat) asked for it.
The atmosphere was good, with basic, candlelit tables in a rustic outdoor setting. Drinks available are beer or water or, allegedly, a special tea made from black lemongrass. However, the tea was off the menu because the cooker was being used to cook dinner! There was a slight wait for the meal, but no more than everywhere else in Moni.
The place is tricky to find, being at the end of a dark lane, but worth the trouble. Maybe locate in daylight and book at the same time.
As a tip, the gado-gado (tasty Indonesian salad) at the restaurant nearest to the road that forks off to Kelimutu was excellent. By far the biggest portion and very tasty. Quick too!
