Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

i ordered suckling pig, the waitress said it's original suckling pig but turn out it's not! it's a pork belly roasted, with botok (coconut with pork), no lawar but changed to other green veggies! please don't name it suckling pig when it's pork belly! it's...not Indonesian authentic tastes of foods! Ordered the tuna steak and arrvied raw, then they warm it up instead of change with new one! overall it's not worth the hype! as this place was recommended by our hotel, definitely we will not come back here anymore! the price also overpriced from what we received!More

Gorgeous setting, excellent food, friendly staff. We had the beef and the ribs, and they were both absolutely superb. We then tried the mango rice pudding and pandan coconut pancakes, and they were truly delicious. The waiter was extremely attentive when it came to my...severe nut allergy, and couldn’t have done more to help us!More

We had the nicest meal and experience at Bambu. The food was to die for and was so beautifully presented. The service was impeccable and the staff were incredibly friendly and professional. They provided great recommendations for food and cocktails. Such a beautiful restaurant and...a lovely night. 10/10 would recommend.More

The staff, food and amenity was spotless. You walk off a main busy road into a virtual oasis. In hindsight we should have gone down well before our booked time and had some cocktails in the bar area. We took a semi fussy child with...food and she ate some stuff off the grid for her and loved it. Priced really well too relative to the quality of the food. We will definitely go backMore

Indonesian fine dining at its best. My wife and I went for dinner (our third visit after coming to Bambu in 2016 and 2017). The setting is very romantic, the service is exemplary. The green sambal was so good on just about everything! Recommend trying...the Babi guling main and the sticky rice dessert. Thank you Bambu for a lovely evening.More

The restaurant is breathtakingly beautiful but the food unfortunately is an absolute let down . All of the dishes we ordered, barring the pork with crackling, were just sub par which is a pity. The service was great. Hope they can do something about the...food though .More

I wanted to try some well put together local Indonesian food and Bambu turned out to be the perfect choice. An elegant interior, surrounded by perfectly clear ponds, set the scene for quite an amazing dinner. The sambal prawns were grilled to perfection and spicy,...just the why I like it. For main I ordered Bambu’s version of the Bali classic, suckling pig. It was probably the best suckling pig I have ever tried. Perfectly rendered, soft and juicy on the inside and encased in the perfect crackle. Dinner was suitably washed down with a few lemon grass and ginger martinis. A spot spot for solo dining too and great for people watching.More

We have eaten here several times while holidaying in Bali and we were lucky enough that they had reopened after covid-19 shut down the week before we sought to dine there. We booked online and received a confirmation email of our reservation. We ordered the...yellow fin tuna and barramundi for main courses and the pumpkin, steamed coconut rice and corn fritter sides. For dessert we had street pancakes with chocolate sauce and coffee ginger ice-cream and pandan pancakes with coconut filling and toasted shredded coconut ice-cream. It was the occasion of my husband's birthday and they made a special effort with his dessert by piping 'Happy Birthday' in chocolate on his plate and placing candles on it too. A very special touch. Admittedly the portion sizes are small, but the food is creatively presented and delicious. We will continue to return to this very beautiful restaurant with its smartly dressed, well trained staff. Well done and highly recommended.More

We were happy Bambu is opened after a 2 year hiatus! It was (and now remains) a must visit for excellent local cuisine at its best. Indeed, our expectations were met. The standards of both food and service remained as high as ever. Well done...Bambu! It has not been easy!More

Hi. You are best to phone them. I don’t have an email address for them. Also by speaking to them you can ask for a table by the pool/pond. Enjoy 🍷
