Steak is great. Very tender. Cooked to perfection.
Also tried the Swiss rosti which was delicious. Even the mie goring here is better than anywhere in Bali.
Service was great again, every time.
Really enjoyed the food and the nice staff.

As long time supporters of Rio steak house we were devastated to learn it is to close in May this year due to the establishment of a new one way system. So we went on the hunt for a possible replacement and certainly found it at Malo's. We watched this place being built but it never occoured to us to go there, not our style from the outside. Anyway we tried it and were thrilled with the meals we were served, again I have to say a brilliant steak cooked to perfection. My partners meal was equally delicious and the sauce was so good had manners not prevailed he would have liked ti lick the plate !
So whilst the decor is a bit of an oddity, more German beerhouse meets Swiss chalet the staff were wonderful as was the food.

We ate at Malo's twice during our recent stay in Seminyak. We found the meals really tasty and great value for money. I can recommend the butterfish with lime sauce - it was delicious! My husband had the pork chops and really enjoyed them. Our girls had the pasta and neither could finish their meals because they were so full. We thought the prices at Malo's were extremely cheap.

I think this restaurant has something to offer everyone.

Staying a month in Bali we have had a chance to visit a wide range of restaurants and have experienced some of the best, and, unfortunately some of the worst. Malo's would have to rate amongst the worst for the quality of their steaks.

Service, price and decor were all very pleasant but the quality of the food completely disappointed us.

I ordered the "fillet" steak (tenderloin) and, although tender, it was salty with a flavor akin to processed meat. It seemed to have been soaked in a salt marinade to tenderize it before cooking. My wife's sirloin steak was much better. Vegetables were far too oily and the gratin potatoes also too salty and rather odd as they contained tomato puree. The black pepper sauce was also WAY too salty.

We would have to agree with the other comment posted here which mentions rave reviews from users who have only posted 1 review - very suspicious indeed!

We understand this restaurant was recently opened by the Swiss expatriate who previously owned Yut'z Place restaurant in Jalan Werkudara. We also ate at Yut'z and were far more satisfied with the quality of the food there.
