Smiley was first known to us from Bali Seascape.
We had the pleasure of visiting his Warung which he now runs.
Nice little warung,Cold drinks, Good food and some music all makes for a very enjoyable night.
All the time Smiley and staff are there to make sure you are well served.
Smiley will pick up and drop off as Warung is a little out of the way from main area.
All in all a good night and one to back to on next visit.

Visited Candidasa and discovered Warung Smiley by accident. Glad we did. From the pick up at the resort to take you to dinner to the quality food and music entertainment, friendly family/staff and great value - had to go back again.

Will return again and enjoy the hospitality of Warung Smiley.

Wayan Smiley is the owner of this restaurant in Candidasa. He will pick you up with his taxi from any hotel in Candisa and drop you off after dinner - for free. The decor is basic and simple. It's more about the food, friendly atmosphere and value. The food was delicious - especially the Kuah Bahari Soup - very nice. I also had the Kare Ayam which was also yummy. The prices are very reasonable and are great value for money.
He is a great host and also owns a tour and adventure service.

We had a cheerful and laid back dinner at Warung Smiley’s. Smiley himself picked us up from our hotel nearby and drove us home after the meal. On our car rides together we learned that Smiley and his wife both used to work in hotels then decided to branch out and start their own family restaurant together. We (two of us) ordered three mains to share and it was all delicious — it was apparent that everything was made with love (for those of you who have eaten in staple tourist restaurants you will know what I mean when I say you can really taste the difference). Mrs Smiley does the cooking while their adorable toddler enthusiastically waves at passers-by. You can tell it’s a popular place when the people walking by all greeted Smiley like they had been there before and were looking forward to their next visit. All in all we would have loved to go back if we were staying longer. Highly recommend this place for those looking to have a tasty local meal in a warm and welcoming environment.

Popped into Smileys as it’s across the street from our hotel. Not a massive menu but certainly enough for you to choose something you like. We chose the pork ribs, sweet and sour pork and pork in a soy sauce which actually turned out to be the best of the three and more like what I was expecting from the sweet and sour pork. Each of the plates were around 50,000 rph so you can certainly stack up your tries. Beers and soft drinks were reasonable too, the whole bill less than two fifty!
Good music playing and nice atmosphere. Staff attentive but just enough English to get by. We would go back no worries.
