Dining at this restaurant is like living a dream. The setting beside the pool with the beautiful sea breeze wafting through is the perfect start for your dining experience. Ships sail past and planes soar over head, all adding to the atmosphere. The waiter service is prompt and seem-less and before you know it you have been served a "cold"... More

We enjoyed the satay, ayam bakar (grilled chicken) and gado gado. All 3 dishes were ordered twice. We also had the mie goreng, and a... More

We stayed at the Sakala Resort over the road from Tao. We ate at Tao's 4 times while we were at Nusa Dua and every meal was delicious. Our family also ate there several times and loved everything they had too. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
