Not a lot of atmosphere but the food is second to non.
A nearly deserted restaurant greeted us but when the food arrived, we did not notice the fairly bland surroundings or lack of diners.
Starters of garlic snails with luscious bead to soak up the sublime juices and petite squares of scrumptious pork belly with a mini salad and we knew we were on to something good.
Our mains consisted of duck leg confit and a fresh rabbit pasta. Equally delicious
The meal ended with a symphony of 2 great favourites, creme brûlée and creme caramel.

Undoubtedly some of the best food I have eaten in a long, long time.
It was excellent value and should be enjoyed by many more guests to ensure it survives and flourishes as it richly deserves to do so..

What a gem. The food was fantastic, the prices very acceptable. My partner and I had the snails, then I had the Calf's livers and my partner the Butterfish - just awesome. We both had sweets.
The food experience and atmosphere was great. The bill was 350 rp -- we are going back tonight for a second indulgence.
Ivan the chef is a delight and if not too busy he will be glad to chat.

Had dinner here last night with a few friends. Simple, unpretentious, small (7 tables inside and a few outside) with a real focus on the quality of the food and wine.

Chef Ivan came out of the kitchen to check that we were enjoying the food, which we were. The three wait staff were clued up on the menu, helpful with wine selection and clearly very well trained.

Will definitely be coming back. The shame of it is that this restaurant isnt on the main Oberoi Street drag - it's serving much better food than any of the restaurants there. So my advice would be to make the extra effort - climb in a taxi and head away from the hubub to this relaxed and simple dinner venue.

Hard to find but well worth the effort! The staff are attentive, the food is fabulous & ample. The wine list is extensive and resonably priced for imports (Indonesian wine leaves a lot to be desired, so pay the extra for an imported!). Overall, a great dining experience in the heart of Seminyak & I would definitely recommend it to all!
