“Beautiful setting and food!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Firstly l want to say...staff were great, loved the uniforms...girls look fantastic! Unfortunately we choose a night when winds and rain couldn't of been worse (7th jan).. Total downpour so the curtains were drawn so the rain wouldn't come in resturant. It didn't help much since it was gail force horrible weather. ( obviously no fault of restaurant) My meal of hamachi fish was cooked well and tasted great. Had a good night and definitely will return. One word of advice..like the other reviewers l found the American woman a little odd. Obviously she is the owner but l found her too much..hovering over the tables and asking questions every ten minutes..maybe back off a little and let your wonderful staff take over. A must go while in Bali. Thanks we will be back.

“Casual, small - average value for money”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Not exactly my worst experience, but service was a bit average with long delays and a very weird small set up which makes you feel out of sorts with your surrounding. Food wasn't bad, some nice dishes but very small serves and expensive. Perhaps they were just having a bad day but either way, the prices don't compare well to other restaurants in Bali in terms of value for money.

“Class all the way”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Not able to get a booking for 10 we took the opportunity to have drinks on the terrace before heading on to another establishment.
Just for info Sardine has a policy of maximum bookings of eight in the evening. Larger groups are welcome for lunch.
This is one of our favourite restaurants in the area and the whole venture from the food to the decor to the view is first class.

“Favourite”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great setting for a romantic dinner (just make sure you get a table on the side with the rice paddies). Great food and service also. Our favourite place in Bali. Better than Sarong.

“Great restaurant. A cut above the rest”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I have visited this restaurant twice in the last two weeks. At night time it is truly beautiful with the lights showcasing the rice paddy field. The ambience could match the best that Australia has to offer. Started with the best Bloody Mary I have ever had. Entree of crab and asian greens which was just fantastic. The highlight were the scallops with trufle ravoli which was just sublime. The service is very professional and the training of the local staff is a credit to the owners.
