Don't really understand the bad reviews here our experience was great and i m a picky french guy.
Being on the other side of the world i wouldn't expect the same service and food as at home but i have to say that it was pretty close and for way cheaper.
Like everywhere go without too many expectations and you will be pleasantly surprised. I will reapeat! Long life to pignou di penyu!!

Sounded great on the menu... What a disappointment when we tasted the food: far below average for a supposed typically French Restaurant.
Poor quality price ratio.

The restaurant claims to serve authentic French and Asian cuisine, however, my husband and I were totally underwhelmed by the few French dishes we selected. There was more burnt bread than onion in the French onion soup and I couldn't taste any butter in the soup. The other appetizer we ordered, which is similar to the Italian bruschetta, was supposed to come with Goat Cheese but had some other block of cheese (maybe mozzarella?). My main course was a scallop dish but the scallops were quite small in size and didn't seemed to be have pan seared at all. The cream sauce that came with it was excessively salty. The baked layered potato was probably the only saving grace. Admittedly, the pricing here is very pocket friendly, but with so many dining options in Ubud and many more opening up, cheap and average food just can't make the cut anymore.

Somehow get a seat for member of 4.

Menus are excellent, taste was okay, maybe not familiar with French taste.

See happy faces on other customers.

Must try the Smoothies !!
