Lovely, friendly service and good coffee but disappointed to see items served in take out containers and cups, even for customers staying put. It would appeal to us more to see Michele's Patisserie's embracing a more sustainable and greener practise. Thanks.

Hands down this is the best jerk chicken you will get in Bali. If you love all foods Jamaican visit Jambali. Michelle is a awesome chef who cooks food with love. I Will be back.

Great food, beautiful restaurant. We'll definitely try to fit another visit into our itinerary. The flavors are amazing and a bit different to most of the other places around.

We went there a few days ago, deciding that we had never really had Jamaican food before anyway. The jerk pork and jerk chicken were delicious, as were the fritters - AND the "Rum Punch" went down way too easily! Michele was so friendly and...More
