“Nice food and good music”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

Went there 2 times. One time I had a indonesian dish, the other time had the schnitzel. Both really good. My boyfried said it was the best mahi mahi he ever ate!
The atmosphere was nice, the music was chilled guitar songs.
Prices a bit expensive.
Wide choice of food.
Don't go there if you don't like dogs. There is one wondering around inside cafe.
Staff wasn't the friendliest but ok.
Would go there again!

Thank NaniOz

“Great deal and good food!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The ladies at this restaurant were very friendly and although we don't usually follow street hecklers in, we went to this place and it was great! Good atmosphere and very friendly staff. We went in as they had a Manic Monday special, buy any entree and get one free, great for a couple! Huge portions at this place, and although they were sold out of Marlin and Tuna, the mahi-mahi and barricuda steaks were amazing. Great Balinese sambal on the barricuda, and the tomato and onion on the mahi-mahi was good, too. Would definitely go back here again for the special, but may not pay full price as it is a bit more pricey!

“Looks can be deceiving”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Maybe it's because we fell for the 'funky Friday' 2 for 1 deal, but despite the comfortable setting and smooth jazz we left disappointed. It's all about the food really; the fish had been overcooked the hamburger was on the raw side.
Maybe just go to drink then cheap beers before heading off to a waring for something the locals eat.
