Nice surroundings and good food at a very reasonable price. Took our own wine and paid reasonable corkage, would definitely recommend, especially the three types of spring rolls.

A wonderful evening spent at Toms Cafe with lovely food and excellent service. The menu was interesting and the staff available to explain what was what.

Not too much to choose from at Balian and this place is not too happy to serve large groups ...we were respectful and booked a table for 8 people...not that big a group I am thinking ..but they made it very clear they were not happy to be serving us...we are all over 50 years old, so no loud or unruly teenagers no one was drunk or even close to it..but it was too much for them...I think it was because they couldn't get the orders out together..which they didn't do anyway...by the time the last order was bought out the first was finished an ready for desert....the food was ok though..but it left a sour note in all of us as I have never come across this behaviour before in Bali..

We ate here a lot in the 2 weeks we were in Balian. The service is great and the setting is in lovely gardens. On Friday nights they have a BBQ night with your choice of three meats (eg fish, chicken, prawns) as well as putting on some entertainment which is really nice and not mass produced for the tourist market. One Friday there was some fantastic local Balinese dancers, and the following night they had gamelan musicians on their small stage. It is only a small restaurant café that serves beautiful Indonesian food and western dishes.

Great food, great staff!
Nice place just to sit for a while after finishing your meal, no hurry to move on. Very friendly and helpful, staff offered to go out of their way to help me with things like buying a sim card or organising transport.
