This restaurant is really really good. The food is a nice mixture of Indonesian and Western cuisine (mahi mahi fish - amazing, the same with tuna and prawns), the chef definitely knows what he's doing! and I really recommend the lychee mohito - delicious! very friendly stuff, nice room. I don't think it's overpriced. sure you can eat a bit... More

Don't see what the hype was about. I ordered the prawn curry, the prawns were nice but the sauce was bland. We've had far better curries on our trip so far. The starters were also average. To top it off, it's way overpriced vs other local restaurants and the staff make you feel uneasy as they are constantly rushing you.

Great food, located just in front of Kuta beach. Nice and friendly staff. Kuta having very few restaurant we went to Bule twice during our stay. This a refine version of local warung and I think this only place in the village were you can find wine on the menu.

Whilst staying at Novotel in Kuta Lombok, our driver Cati recommended this warung to us. We were not disappointed. As we pulled up outside the restaurant, the waiter actually came out to the car (probably friends with Cati) and greeted us before moving seats to accommodate the 7 of us. We started with a lovely Mohito cocktail which was nice... More

This was our 2nd time at Bule and we were very disappointed in the service. Our daughter ordered a bowl of fries as she wasn't feeling too well and when they came she asked for some tomato sauce. She put the tomato sauce all over her fries and started to eat them however after the first few seconds her mouth... More

The places focuses on serving local food in the best way possible and they succeed. About the food: The meat is cooked to perfection, the flavor is incredible, the portions are more than sufficient and this all for next to nothing. About the rest: the furniture is just like in a traditonal warung but more romantic and comfortable, the Service... More

By accident I ran into this warung which qualifies as a good dining restaurant. Whereas most people tend to swing left to where most places are, turn right and find this warung. Great friendly service, nice interaction with the staff, no kids selling bracelets and the food... truly delicious. I wasnt forced to get the most expensive or anything. Just... More

Even the name is not appealing, I bet that this is the best place for a dinner in Kuta, Lombok. Clean, tasty food for a very reasonable price. No wonder 80% of the guests were from the Novotel Lombok when we had dinner in "Bule". Same quality of food for a third of the price.

This was my 5th visit to Lombok and I have dined at Bule on each ocassion. This time was really disappointing, and the constant chanting from the mosque next door certainly didn't help. The owner/chef is very friendly, but he always tries to steer you into ordering the most expensive dishes, ie 'king prawns', which I did order the first... More

Bule was recommended to us. We were only going to Kuta Lombok for 24 hours, so we drove straight to Bule. It is on a road that overlooks the beach. Didn't appear much to look at, made worse by the fact that the chairs and tables were all stacked up as they weren't open for lunch yet. On seeing us... More
