When we were dropped off in front of this restaurant one evening we almost thought we were in the wrong place. It's located off the main street and tucked away behind lots of vegetation. Our table was outdoors (and in fact was just patio furniture). The food however makes up for the less than spectacular ambiance. Only traditional Indonesian and Balinese food is offered, but wow is it good! We ordered 3 dishes and rice as sort of a Balinese tapas night (the prices are cheap). The chief even came around to all of the tables at the end to have a little chat. Though I wouldn't recommend this place for a romantic couple's night, the food has to be experienced at least once.

Boni is a lovely man who will come to your hotel and drive you to his beautiful little restaurant. His wife, Connie will cook delicious, traditional (and very inexpensive) food. You will be served by their neighbours children. Boni supports them and their families by giving them work so that they can learn English and afford to go to school. Boni is also driver and tour guide. He's so lovely with a beautiful heart. Do yourself a favour and go!

It's hard to compare this to the larger, main street restaurants like Vincent's. They serve Balinese and Indonesian food, nothing European or American. Bon uses local youth to help in his Warung so they can learn a skill and hopefully a little English too. Bon is a forward thinking man who supports and gives back to his community. He picks you up at your hotel with a big smile, feels you amazing food at a very affordable price (so tip generously, it's going to a great cause) and then drops you back off. Bon also will provide his services as a local guide or shuttle to the airport. Check this one out.

This is the tiniest restaurant at which we have eaten with only two tables tucked in down a quiet side street a fair length from the main drag. This is exactly what we like on a hot Balinese afternoon. You order, sit back with two chilled beers and chat to the owner, Bon while his wife whips up some classic Indonesian dishes such as Nasi Campur in the wok. It's fresh, unpretentious food cooked with love. What more could you ask for?

We so enjoyed Bon's company that we hired him to drive us to a whole series of local attractions, including a traditional village where we saw the War of the Raw Bananas (seriously), the Water Palace, coffee plantation (including poor little captive civet cat) and much more. It was a great day and outstanding value for money. Hook up for a meal and take the tour. It will almost certainly be one of the highlights of your visit.

The couple who run the warung are lovely. The food is fresh, very reasonably priced and overall great. Juices and mie goreng recommended. We went for lunch and later with old Balinese friends for dinner. Our Balinese friends agreed, really good Balinese food at really good prices
