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.

Have been here a few times and to be fair, the food is solid. Basically they do a nice roast chicken offering with veggies and delicious sauces etc. It tastes nice and homemade. Also, they show alot of live sports which you can't get in...other bars on the island. The problem is their beer. They only serve draught beer on tap. Which would be fine if it tasted good. But the problem is that is tastes consistently flat and stale. My question is; If you dont sell enough draught beer for it to be fresh for customers, why dont you simple serve bottled beer, whereby you can guarantee that it will be fresh and consistent?!! Go there for the food, keep away from the nasty draft beer!!More

I visited this place several times and enjoyed their roast chicken immensely - super juicy and really good value for money considering the food quality and sports bar-type setting. Its a great place to watch rugby and soccer. One time there I also ordered the...beef steak. I like my steak cooked blue (super super rare), its hard to get a perfectly blue steak even in my home country of Australia so whenever I order a steak in a pub it usually comes out rare or medium rare which I dont complain about because i know cooking a steak blue is not easy. I couldnt believe that on this tiny island in Indonesia at Ayam Bagus I had the most perfectly cooked blue steak I have ever had. My friends had theirs rare and medium rare and were equally impressed. The service was also phenomenal. They were very relaxed about splitting bills, the local staff were super friendly and helpful and the french owners spent the night rushing around doing everything they could to make sure everyone was happy. I highly recommend this place and cant wait to go back.More

I ordered dark meat and specifically told the waiter I didn't like the breast. He came back with breast and said, sorry, your husband ordered dark meat too and we can't serve both dishes with dark meat because half a chicken has one leg and...one breast. The funny thing is we didn't order a half chicken, we ordered two quarters separately precisely to avoid this. My juice was really watery, mostly ice. Another drawback is that they don't accept credit cards.More

Can't recommend this place enough if you want a few cold beers and delicious chicken while you kick back and watch the latest sports. Spent many fun days and nights here watching the rugby world cup. When there's no sports it's also a great peaceful...hangout spot with lovely gardens out the back. Great place!More
