“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Went here for dinner. Didn't expect that my date would take me here.
I love the interior and the atmosphere, food was good except for the tiny portion of the chicken wings. The dishes was quite exotic.
There was a live music and the band was great. This restaurant should have a dance floor. :p
Mostly old people who come here, ages around 40th - 50th. If you come for a date, i suggest you not to take the sofa lounge, unless those oldies will come in a group and join your date in the same sofa LOL that what happened to me.

“Just No ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

exotic, great decor, nice lightning mood, perhaps great for party goers or watching the band but definitely not for the food. We had dinner here, so no band was playing at the time of our visit. So how do i put this ... horrible, soggy fried eggplant, tough tasteless steak, very weak pinacolada overall a let down and not recommend this place for the food, there are so many other places in bali with this price range but so much better food.

“super fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Last night there was a Saharadja concert at the Red Drum, it was fun, we have booked a table for 10person, personally i did not have a meal, but some of us had, and they loved it, the drink prices are following a Bali medium standard, the crowed was actually made the ambiance of the place, and its kinda deal breaker for me. when you wanna have dinner or just fun at night, the people around you def counts. im not into posh, im not into snob, im not into too much electrical sound, so for me this lively people are create great atmosphere with ethno world fusion music at the back, in a nice place. im surely going back!

“A bit let down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Great decor, very very hot inside fans running, but no A/C, calamari sent back because it was off and stunk to high heaven, bit let down by reading reviews that didn't stack up. No returning for me

Red Drum is a great place to soak up the African atmosphere. We went with a few friends & loved the food & the live music. We'll be back again v soon.
