I encourage everyone to try this restaurant out at least once to experience true Balinese cuisine. We selected a range of dishes which were suited to all ages and tastes and it was absolutely delicious. The lemongrass chicken was so tender and the snapper was an all round favourite. We loved the mix of sate sticks and the range of sauces accommodated every desirable taste. The salads and rices available were great as well. There was an a la carte option as well but I highly recommend the BBQ.

The location was quite hidden away and we were the only family eating there for a while until a few more couples scattered through. Don't be put off by the lack of traffic going through as it adds to the quaint, personal touch the staff offer you (beginning with the complimentary prawn crackers and frangipani flowers in everyone's hair).

[On a side note it was extremely hot so I advise you to sit under a fan!!]

We stumbled upon this open air eatery en route from our hotel/resort into town. It is tucked in a corner off of the main street, next to a flee market. And what a pleasant surprise it was! The owner welcomed us and showed us the selection, well laid out for everyone to see and be able to chose from. The food was delicious! You could get extra servings of vegetables and salads, and then get your choice of grilled sates, various meats (marinated or plain), fresh fish and prawns, corns, or duck or fish wrapped and cooked in banana leaves. We tasted many of the offerings and everything was delicious. Very pleasant service. As to the bar, it is hard for me to say, as we mostly ordered beers (local Bintang). But we also ordered fresh fruit juices and gin tonic and both were fine. We liked the place so much that we went back to have our New Year's Eve meal there! We did not want to stay in our resort for dinner which was an elaborate multiple course extravaganza that took four hours. We opted for Balinese food, pleasant surroundings, meal that took an hour and a half, with the reasonable price as an extra bonus. Four people; and we ordered everything we wanted, plus some beers and juices for about 48 Euros. Lovely lovely place!

Grilled red snapper, grilled prawns, grilled veges (like a kebab) and mixed veges in satay sauce kept us full for hours
Couple of beers and a fan to keep us cool ... Delicious
(No air con, no wifi so 4 stars not 5)

Tuck at the corner of a road junction - Jalan Laskmana 22A, an open air eatery selling satay of pork, beef, chicken and fish. There's also grilled pork ribs and vegetable.

We ordered the 6 pcs set of satay (mixed of chicken and pork). The meat is chunky but a bit hard and need the source to compliment it flavor.

Overall not too bad to try but not a must.

First time visit the place as its near our villa. Ordered the set for 2 person. The set consist of soup, 2 types of fish, prawns, squids, a vegetarian dish and fish satay plus dessert.

The fish portions were ok. However they only gave 2 small portions of squid and prawns. Not enough for us.

Staff were nice and attentive. The place looks a bit run down. Food though we're good and delicious.
