Shockingly poor food. Worst we had during a week in Lombok, including 3 days camping in the mountains. We ordered Lombok specialities and hoped for a unique experience. One dish ordered was BBQ chicken in a spicy coconut sauce. We got the skeleton of a chicken with most of the meat removed covered in what looked and tasted like spicy... More

We ordered chicken taliwang, gado gado, Soto ayam, and ayam goreng. The ayam goreng (fried chicken) was listed under the Indonesian menu so we were expecting it to be cooked Indonesian style. Instead it came chopped, breaded, and fried chicken nugget style. To make it worse, it was overcooked and hard. The chicken taliwang was also overcooked and hard and... More

It was not easy to find it, so I added photo from outside. The cafe serves local food as well as international, you can find pasta in menu. I tried steamed fish and it was really good. Staff is friendly and speak reasonable English, menu is translated as well. Be careful with spice, could be more then impressive for European.

Found this small eatery on our third night in Senggigi. Paid 200k for two main meals, three drinks, and two deserts. Staff are so friendly and the food was delicious! We will definitely go back again before we leave.

We visited this restaurant two times and were more than happy with the delicious food and the fresh fruit juices. Everything was very tasty (try the "mixed rice" if you can't decide what to order - it combines many different things). The staff is very friendly and doing a great job. We can highly recommend this restaurant!!

The food is very good and the menu offers lots of indonesian dishes. We had a chicken and seafood curry which were great. Prices are reasonable as well. Paid 150k for the curries and two beers.

We visited for dinner and order chicken satay and the Ayam Taliwang. The Taliwang was delicious and a good portion. The staff are friendly and the prices cheap! A must in Senggigi.
