“Mediocre at best!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Watercress Café seems like a new comer to the Seminyak's dining scene. We did not secure any dinner reservation on Good Friday and was recommended by our hotel concerige to the Watercress Café. We thought we were having Indonesian cuisine and we were surprised to learn from their menu that the café was serving grilled western cuisine. We ordered the grilled chicken, fish fillet, calamari and bean curd. All four dishes looked surprisingly alike, all covered with a bug healthy portion of greens. The seasoning was a bit weird as the calamari tasted too sweet for our likings. Nothing special about the grilled meat as we can easily whipped out similar offerings at our home grill. My wife was especially unimpressed by the below-par and uninteresting food quality. Our meal costed USD25 per person. There are better restaurants in Bali if you are desperate for bbq food.

Highly intelligent and exceedingly attractive readers of TripAdvisor understand this is a personal review and does not reflect our continued commitment to great food and genuine service. The most important thing to know is that every complaint can be easily resolved by having a quick word to our friendly manager, who systematically checks on every table. It is our policy that if a dish is not to your liking, we are happy to replace it or render it complementary.

We are grateful for the opportunity to clarify to our readers that we do not serve Indonesian cuisine at Watercress Malam. We serve healthy abundant mixed seafood and meat grills with a range of delicious sides and sauces. Its simple fare done right, just good, honest food that anybody can cook at home. We do not serve bean curd, ever. We are located in Kerobokan, not Seminyak. We do not have a "bug salad". Our average price per head is $15-18 for dinner and may be a little higher if you're drinking alcohol.

Your opinions are an important contribution to the TripAdvisor community and provide readers with a valuable view into your own personal experience, therefore please attempt to be accurate and insightful. As a business owner it is my duty ensure all my guests have a positive experience in my restaurant. I apologize if we did not meet your expectations.

“Charming vibe and delicious fresh food”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Watercress caught our eye as we were riding past. It's such a cute place for lunch with a cool, chilled vibe. Our salad and sandwich were delicious. A great find...a little gem of a place.

“Awesome restaurant with a nice atmosphere and soo delicious food!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Me and my friend stayed in Seminyak for 2 weeks. After finding this nice restaurant in the 2nd week of our journey we went there every day to have lunch and play some backgammon. We were delighted by the interior decoration and the nice atmosphere. The service staff was friendly and obliging and the food was very very deicious. You can chose from freshly made sandwiches to fantastic salads, burgers and (important:) a range of deserts (you really have to try the brownie which comes with vanilla ice cream - it's a must!!!). Since we got quite high demands concerning food and restaurants we were impressed by Watercress. A little attraction in beautiful Seminyak:)

“Will Never Disappoint You !”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Been here 4 times and definitely will visit again and again.
First I was here for dinner, great choice and all interesting. The other visits were for brunch and very late brunch (can still order breakfast menu until 4 pm).
Coffees are a must try. Salad and healthy juices are delicious.
Breakfast always satisfying, service consistently good or excellent.
Do make time whenever you visit Bali. For those who stays in the area, this could be your next regular hang out place.
