We have been in Matahari Tulamben Villa and had pick up to the Restaurant in the evening and later drop back to the Villa. The food was great. We tried several meals. The thai food is great as well as the german potato salad. And the best ist the location. Direct at the beach.

Was here for my honeymoon and it was really great. Nice decoration for our room, amazing view from the Restaurant with totally tasty food. The dives were relaxed and with experienced guides. But the best was our honeymoon package in SPA. Will come again. Sure.

Still great food and most of all, when you want something thats not on the menu, just ask and they will serve it for you. Clean food, good food and the pindasauce is the best in the world!

Only fried rice and grilled fish are acceptable, the others are bad than expected. Bottle water is costly, better buy from the convenient store outside. Pancake is hell

We are a Restaurant and not a Warung. In Bali it is not common in Restaurants to serve water for free. You can not enjoy our nice ocean view with own drinks. We run a business which pays government tax and staff. Therefore not possible to bring drinks from outside. We hope for your understanding..... That you didnt like our... More

This is definitely best local dinner/food I had throughout my 2 weeks stay in Bali and Lombok. We ordered 3 serving to try and all 3 dished did not disappoint me. We sat on the first floor and it has a great view of the sea and moon rising.

The best thing about this restaurant is the views, either from downstairs or better still upstairs. However if you're looking for exciting Balinese or Indonesian food this is not the place. The food is not bad, but is not exciting either. If you have visited Kuta or Seminyak and sampled the restaurants there you'll know what I mean. The staff... More

The food was nothing special. Nice view though. We chose for the spring rolls and nasi goreng but i would not recommend it. There was so much garlic.

Very sorry that you dont like garlic. Our nasi goreng is popular and normally the people love it..... So what can we do when you didnt mention that you dont like garlic.... We try hard to satisfy our guests and we love to get feedback direct. So we would have a chance to make guests happy... More

I have been going to Bali since the Mid 90's. This resort was a great capture of what Bali was like in the early days. It is on a single road system where everyone comes and goes, it had small basic rooms that were very clean, great air con and a great little fridge. The price was pretty light on... More

We have stay here for 4 nights. Every morning have different breakfast. When you have something with the toasts. Do ask for <Toast hangus sedikit>. Only you will get proper toast.

Our soups are NOT instant packed and also not our mie goreng. We make daily fresh stock and serve fresh soups! Means this is not correct what you say! About our breakfast: you can choose from the menu for breakfast and if you like the toast crispy simple inform the staff. We dont understand your problem because it is easy... More

We stayed at the matahari for a week and had most of our meals there. Breakfast is OK. The food in general is good, I didn't like the bread they use for burgers, it is to dry.
