We had drinks here. It was a stop on the way to out next hotel. The view is fantastic. The food looked good as well. No wifi though.

Staff service was great, food was very good, and the Bintang was cold. I can't believe it is part of the whole Lakeview Hotel complex (see my other reviews). It was a shame they weren't open for dinner the night we were there (or for breakfast because you have to eat at the big restaurant on the hill - buffet),... More

Unfortunately, I'm not sure there are any good places to eat in this area of Bali with a view of the volcano so you must choose a place based on the view and be satisfied with that. We stopped at this place after trying another tourist trap restaurant with a buffet. and we were looking for something better. In hindsight,... More

Nice place to stop and enjoy a quiet view away from people trying to sell you junk. The bathroom are clean and good place to wash your hands. Waitresses nice.

Was really amazed just how much there wasn't on the menu considering the label eg international. British. Italian. Indonesian and Asian. One menu item from each listed maybe? Staff managed to show a complete lack of welcoming like mentioned in previous reviews. 50k Rp for a small beer sure in a five star hotel but Danu Art Cafe would be... More

I went for lunch and was the only guest in the cafe. 2 waiters were cleaning some dishes, so after I ordered, I always had to get them when I wanted something. The view is not special, you will really get it anywhere in Tegalalang. But the Mie Goreng and the fruit yoghurt I had were very good! Not that... More

My worst Bali restaurant experience. I've visited Danu three times in two days - not my choice - as a part of local trips. The buffet was worse that an average "all you can eat" in a crappy Australia hotel. Very few choices, almost cold food and basically tasteless. The following day we dropped in for a 3am coffee before... More

Wow, that's quite a damning report, and quite a surprise to receive during our combined Hindu and Muslim festive season when all the staff should have quite high morale. I will send in some mystery guests to give me a more detailed report as when I'm on duty things seem quite ok. I'm sorry to hear that our service did... More

Thanks for your input! We'll work on adding variety to our next menu. Regarding WiFi, yes we have a 4Mbps connection to the Danu Art Cafe which is available for free. Nevertheless, we hope that people come for the view, food, peace and quiet, not for the free WiFi! :-) Happy travels More

I ordered the fish satay with coconut and sweet potatoe wedges. I find it a little over burnt and the so called pickle side dish was only a size of the sauce plate. Not fully even fully filled. I thought for a 45k rupiah dish, you could at least serve a good portion for it. The sweet potatoes wedges is... More

Thanks for the candid review! Your input is very valuable for us to improve. I recommend asking for extra side dish if you like it (I usually do that, especially when it's particularly good!) There's a clear view to the lake from the eastern balcony, and a volcano view above the trees from most of the restaurant. If you need... More

I stopped in here for dinner one evening, then for brunch the next day. The staff recognised me from lunch the previous day too.
