“Let Down and Rip Off”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 via mobile

Eaten at more than a dozen one, two and three star Michelin Restaurants, and when I see people saying this place deserves a star, I'd really beg to differ.

Chose the tasting menu and it started out okay but went downhill from there.

The chef really scrimped on the key ingredients, which is not something you'd expect if he had any pride.

Foie Gras: overcooked or done with the wrong technique because it destroyed the melty texture. Even duck liver when done properly would retain the melt-in-your-mouth consistency. Dish came with so much pineapple jam underneath, it drowned out the main ingredient completely in proportion and flavour.

The main course of "9 hour" angus beef was two stupendously TINY morsels, and it came with a bowl of mash to what, fill our stomachs?

Dessert was a HUGE bowl of Valrhona Chocolate Soup. Even though it was nice, we found it ridiculous that a huge bowl of chocolate soufflé type thing was being used to end off the dinner and make us feel full.

The irony is that after that, the petit four came, two lemongrass infused madeleines, one white and one dark chocolate bonbon. We were confused as to how to share or whether to fight over that?

Overall a lousy experience of being ripped off.

“Asian fusion at its finest”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

This has been the best Asian fusion restaurant I have been in. Beef Rendang Tortellini was so innovative. I love that they showed a sample of the flavors you were about to taste. The mangosteen sorbet was just a bit too tart for me but my friends loved it. Its no wonder this is the top resto in Indonesia. Truly the best

“Just O.K.”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Presentation not great. My husband and I ordered the same plate and they came out looking completely different. Staff very nice but food just o.k. We choose the Indonesian taster menu to enjoy a taste of local culture. Nothing was great. We upgraded wine pairing, wine was good not above average.

“Great food”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

This restaurant definitly deserves a michelin-star. They propose several menus and you can choose them even with the wines. Ok for Bali it's expensive, but the quality is really good and so you pay european prices for a michelin- star cuisine, but you can eat outside in Bali.

“A Well rounded delight”
Reviewed 1 April 2013 via mobile

I'm frankly puzzled by some of the critical reviews on TA for this charming, culinary treat...perhaps they had too much sun? That being said, this is a charming restaurant with a uniquely beautiful setting and Balinese feel despite having an international chef. The local ingredients tasting menu is the way to go for your first time here as you learn about unusual ingredients (at least for me) that complement tasty food that's accessible to the western palate. Each dish was better than the next..the tortellini was perfectly cooked and tasty, the trout was remarkably fresh and delicate, and the bread was just baked. The wine pairings were very satisfying with a good range of countries represented...only thing I'd rethink is serving two Sauvignon Blancs back to back, but the light red with the pork was a refreshing choice (too many people are sadly constrained the notion that only white goes with pork!). Service reminds me of Danny Meyer's approach...professional, friendly, accessible and warm...and in this case with Indonesian charm.
