“Great local fare with A Quaint atmosphere”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were looking for somewhere not so 'tourist-like'..with authentic Balinese cuisine. This restaurant has a good online menu that helps us decide whether we should give this place a go. Near our hotel, located at a busy junction. Quiet, quaint restaurant with fake chandelier and an old world charm.

2-3 guys waiting on an indoor n outdoor cafe. Lovely atmosphere at night with candlelight. We chose the indoor area with good fan ventilation.

Good list of cocktail n mock tails. Yummy strawberry mocktail.

We had what we came for..Balinese Gurame (fried fish) which came whole & well fried (not greasy), v fresh. Along with the fish came a set of rice with 4 sambal sauces n water spinach. It was scrumptiously good. So good that we came back and had lunch there. No sharing. One set each of gurame. It was really good.

Only downside is the service. Really so slow that even the waiter was falling asleep at the side.

Come here if you are not in a rush. Night is lovely.

We had our wedding anniversary dinner there. Unforgettable.

Sought out this spot for dinner - would have been a very good experience however, it was significantly understaffed. Seats were half full upon arrival, place filled up quickly. Long, long, waits for everything as the nice staff were having to run to keep up - I believe there were two staff (three max) to serve tables, one bartender, and one other set of hands for the over 20 tables full. A quaint atmosphere and very good food. I hope that service improves to allow for a very good time for all!!! Lots of irritated customers was evident!!!

“slow service”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We werent happy with our visit to Waroeng Bonita. Firstly it is stinking hot in there. Service it extremely slow, our first round of drinks took 25 minutes to arrive. Food was tasty but also very slow to arrive. The restaurant was not bust that night, and when we ordered our drinks there were only two other customers in the restaurant. We stayed for the lady boy show which was pretty poor quality. We would not bother coming back unfortunately.

“Never disappoints...”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

I have visited many times and always felt relaxed and had a great meal. There is a mixed Indonesian and western menu and the food is tasty and excellent. It is consistently good.

There is a choice of in and out door seating. Service is polite, professional and unobtrusive.

I will always visit when I come to Bali. It is a favourite for many reasons.

Well done Bonta.

“One word -Amazing!!!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident!!
My goodness what a find! The food is so good that I literally could not talk. Every mouth full was like heaven.
We had been to "Breeze" the night before and paid $ 274Aud.
The food was just as good here and the bill came to $28 Aud.
Absolutely brilliant !!!!
