“Excellent food, service in a heavenly setting”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We visited a few weeks ago, before official opening. Love the drive down the winding lane off Petitenget to reach this nirvana location by the pool at Sentosa. Rafael and his team are very gracious and hospitable - delicious tapas like crab croquettes, lobster brioche and the taco of tempura prawns were just a few of the fabulous dishes we tried from Angus Harrison and his team. The list of cocktails and drinks is extensive and we only wish we could have come back for a second visit before heading home to Melbourne.

We are all so spoiled for choice in Seminyak but it will be on the top of our list next time we are in Bali!

“Excellent value for a celebrity-chef restaurant”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Went there for a late lunch last Thursday. It’s a very impressive tropical poolside setting. We had spaghetti with crab and calamari, and tuna sashimi. My pasta was superb - light and tasty, and a decent-sized serve. My partner said her sashimi was excellent. The service was prompt and the staff are enthusiastic and friendly. The cost was also very reasonable. I was surprised that we were the only diners in the restaurant at 3.30 in the afternoon. I’m sure it will take off when word-of-mouth gets around. I’d thoroughly recommend it.

“Amazing dinner experience”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Seeing Luke Mangans name on the bill board under the Sentosa Villas sign we decided to stop and have a drink and check out the menu. We ordered drink and were so delighted with the hospitality we received by the staff & the knowledge of the drinks by the head host.
Looking at the menu we decided to give it a go OMG it was our best Mediterranean meal in Bali.
The service food and ambience was amazing. I highly highly recommend this restaurant , was also very very affordable . If you go to Bali you must dine here

“Superbly Stunning”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

What a delight it was to discover this superb restaurant 500m from our villa. Having heard of Luke Mangan and his reputation for being one of Australia's elite chef's we were thrilled to have the opportunity to visit his new restaurant at Sentosa. We are only sorry that we will missing the official opening on the 21st Sept as we will be heading home that day. We lazed on one of the very large and colorful (bright yellow) daybeds around the beautifully lit pool - enjoyed a cocktail or three and grazed on the delicious morsels from the menu. We hadn't planned to have dinner on that particular night but will certainly do so before we leave. Highly recommend.
