“Beautiful drinking spot”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Went to KDT for drinks before dinner. Ordered cocktails off the list which was huge. Pretty sophisticated and I much preferred the scene at Seminyak compared to Kuta. Beautiful spot to come and watch the sunset over the beach and everyone gathers at this time for this so get there early for good seats!

“Myth or reality”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went there, knowing every advice and having heard good and not so good thing about Ku De Ta.
However, we might have been lucky, but we get directly a bed facing the sea at 4h45 pm, started by some drinks and because it's typically a place you don't want to leave, we ended ordering a pizza and some finger food.Facing the sunset, everything was excellent, service was very good and the Music awesome. Definitely a great place. I only miss a choice of local food like, grilled lobster or a couple of local food.

“It will blow you away and will drain your wallet at the same time”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Having heard of the hype around Ku De Ta my friends and I went there for dinner and drinks. The whole area is set up to view the sea and it was pretty beautiful.

Since we didn't have reservations, we were told to wait an hour. In the meantime we lounged around the bar section, facing the sea, it was amazing. The drinks were good, albeit pricey. We also had the pizza bread with dip. Good.

Dinner was good, too...but pricey. The appetizers ranged from around 90-160 thousand each. Mains were pegged from 290-340 thousand. For some weird reason, pastas were found in the appetizer section only but you can order them as mains ... At basically double the price.

Servings are small for the price you pay. I had lamb shoulder, braised and served with a side salad and a type of purée.

Service was terrible. The guests on an adjacent table (a party of 5or 6) were served much earlier than we did, despite the fact that we were seated at least 10 minutes earlier than they did. Any request took a very long time and not all the waiters knew their own menu.

My friends had the crispy soft shell crab salad with pork belly. It was the best one on the lot but is too heavy and savory to be considered a salad. One of us also ordered the saffron angel hair pasta, which I thought was a little bit too heavy on the saffron flavor that the other ingredients were indistinguishable, especially with the dim lighting.

My previous night's dinner was filled with oohs and aahs and cost us half the price of our dinner at Ku De Ta, which was just nice to good.

I agree with most reviewers... Drinks and ambients are great plus points. Food? Good but not great. Chi chi factor, maximum.

“Fabulous ambience”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The location, music and ambience was fabulous. Must visit on one's trip to Bali. The Bellini's are fabulous as is some of the vegetarian selections.
