“A Pampered Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We were collected on time from our hotel and pampered from the moment we arrived at Candidasa Cafe.
It was not busy at all, just a family and us. A welcome drink was delivered and we spent time deciding what to eat.
Both meals were delicious, fresh and very much enjoyed.One of us had a steak and the other chicken. Staff were attentive and anticipated our every need. We will definitely visit again.

“Two meals..two totally different experiences.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Stopped off here for an early dinner and thought it was about time we tried somewhere new instead of our old faithfuls in candidasa. My steak was lovely, served on a sizzling skillet with loads of lovely vegetables, maybe a bit more cooked than I asked for but I
On a skillet this is difficult to control. My husbands meal however was a bit of a disaster, he ordered the beef rendang and asked for extra spice, what he got was a bowl of watery "Irish stew" with no spice, infact no taste at all. I'm not sure who's interpretation of beef rendang it was but it was certainly like no other. Given 3 out of 5 as my steak was lush .. Also the cheapest meal we have eaten in CD so far, free transport back to our hotel. Probably won't go again but glad we tried it. Rumour is there is new management / ownership here which might account for decline in quality?

“Average, but wouldn't go again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Chicken soup was pretty good, but veggie curry was spicy as requested but tasted one dimensional and tasted like it was made with chicken broth as the base. If I was a vegetarian I would be concerned. Also my husband had a bite and "Crunch" a big piece of grit was in the food, Lovely yes? No.
