“Good food but too pricey!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Excellent Authentic Balinese food... A good experience and a must try when u r in bali. The atmosphere is very cozy, the staff were extremely active and helpful. It is a non-smoking restaurant although it is al fresco style. Top notch, I would say!

“Order the duck 24 hours in advance for the best dining experience in Bali!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

One simple testament to how good this place is: we are here 4 times in 10 days! All of the meals we had here were excellent but if you want a real treat, get the half duck dinner (290,000rp, plenty for two people)! You will have to order 24 hours in advance but you are in for a treat! Comes with soup, sates tons of success and delicious fruit dessert. An amazing deal by any standard!

“Advised to try this place, glad we did!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

I have to say that while visiting Bali, all the food no matter where we were was of an excellent standard. Being a soft westerner who has difficulty coping with the humidity, this could be my only reservation about here, as its purely alfresco. However, the food and the extremely friendly staff make up for any discomfort with the heat/humidity. As soon as you enter the almost courtyard style restaurant, there is a hail of greetings from the kitchen chefs and waiters alike.

Seated at our table the staff were very efficient and nibbles while you wait between drinks and ordering. We ordered the Balinese Rijsttafel along with a bottle of sparkling water and four Long Island Ice Teas over the course of the meal. The Balinese Rijsttafel is a taster course for two: with a soup to start, I hate soup; however, was pleasantly suprised and thoroughly enjoyed it; followed by a tray of small courses of a variety of foods including skewers on a mini charcoal grill with s superb satay sauce; concluding with a platter of desserts ranging from local fruits to the gooey pastries. Not everything may to your pallet; however, this meal is a great way of finding out what is.

Would thoroughly recommend visiting this restaurant and I am so glad it was recommended to us. The whole bill came to 1.261M IDR including tax and service charge.

“Authentic and top notch ”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Famous for its rijstafel. Neither the atmosphere, nor the food or service disappointed. Delicious. With really nice touches and a rousing welcome (the whole staff calls out in unison to greet each arriving guest/party - a festive and impressive tradition). We went to the original one next to the Oasis Hotel, not the new Bumbu Bali II up the road, but we heard that each is good as the other.

“Best Balinese in Bali..!!! ”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Had such a great lunch. So fresh, clean and healthy. 100% a must do, very cheap too. Try the skewers and ribs, also great vegetarian options. We could only get in for lunch, so make sure to book dinner.
