Description: Located in the centre of the finest imaginable view of jatiluwih rice terrace Bali.Featuring Balinese crispy duck served with organic red rice and more.....
Reviewed February 21, 2014

When I reach Jatiluwih, I deliberately chose to have my lunch at this place due to the reviews on TA but beside the stunning views and scenery, the food is actually quite disappointing.

Food
- When I reach the waitress only show me the buffet line and never mentioned anything about the Crispy Red Duck (Bebek beras merah) need to be ordered separately. I was partially engrossed with the scenery that I had forgotten to ask about the duck.
- The food variety on the buffet line is rather limited. You basically have white rice, fried noodles, mixed vegetables, the eggs, soy sauce chicken, fruits and desserts. And they don't look very appetizing either. And indeed, when I tucked in, only the soy sauce chicken (ayam kicap) taste good. The rest are just ordinary.
- As for drinks, you only get skyjuice. Anything else is ala carte.

Service
- As mentioned above, service is rather average. Not because they are unfriendly or anything like that but they don't know how to promote their signatory dish, especially considering how
average their buffet was.
- Only when my plate was 2/3 finished I remembered about the crispy duck that was mentioned on TA and promptly asked them about it. That is when they told me that's ala carte and passed me the menu. There's no way I can still order that as I'm almost full already.

Restaurant atmosphere
- This is the only excellent part of the restaurant. It has outdoor seating where you are facing the rice terraces and the view is simply magnificent. If you have the time, you can actually spend few hours there with a cup of coffee/tea just to enjoy the scenery. It is well worth it.
- And the air is breezy and cooling too despite the sunshine.

Price
- The buffet cost a hundred thousand rupiah excluding taxes which is a separate 11-12%. Obviously that is far from value for money.

Conclusion/recommendations
- If you are at this restaurant for a proper meal, be sure to order the Crispy duck and skip the buffet line. The stunning scenery might temporarily "blow your memory" away so do be aware ;-)

One of the best location in Bali, 55 minutes drive from Denpasar. Nice location, Jatiluwihb is recommended by UNICE for the inherited preserve area, and good scenery, surrounded by the rice (Padi) field, nice climate, good foods, nice people, and I recommend you should at least try to visit the J Terrace when you are in Bali, and you will not make a wrong decision ! And will bring you back with a lot of good memories. !
