We called in here as it has a great view and it just kept ticking the boxes. Kitchen nice and clean (my wife, a chef, always checks), friendly staff and the food was great, more tasty than the usual fare - they also do Thai. Despite being the only 2 customers one of the staff just started playing the rendek... More

I recommend the delicious pepes. One young waiter occasionally plays traditional music. The banana juice contains more water than banana but the Indonesian food was good.

Good food, fair price (+-122000 roupies for two meals and drinks). The waiter was really nice! I would recommend this place and go again!

Service with a smile and the food was great. We had curry chicken vegetables. A cool breeze swept through the open air eatery. We will be back.

We visited the warung at night before their closing time at 9pm. We only ordered snack food which was so-so. Nothing much to shout about. However their Wi-Fi connection is strong and fast.

We love the area that is surrounded by hills on the chilling-height-level. Imagine that you eat in the open-restaurant with fresh breezes from the rice paddy, out of crowd and healthy oxygen to breath with. I enjoyed my vegetable curry while my wife happy with her fried fish. The only cons was that no water in the toilet.

Did not enjoy our meals here. The spring rolls were greasy and the pizza was not particularly well done. Maybe in Bali don't do pizza BUT we have had good to excellent pizza at other restaurants. Service was good and it was obvious that our waitress was trying very hard to be helpful and to provide us with a good... More

Lovely views across the rice fields, service and food was fine and fun to hit the 'bamboo bell' for service!

This is a lovely, simple open-air restaurant on the road between Lihat Sawa B&B and Surya Shanti Hotel. It is the only restaurant in that area of Sidemen. The food was simple and fresh with excellent flavor -- fresh tomato soup was excellent, the chicken sate was perfectly grilled, and the fish curry was fresh, light and flavorful. Strongly recommended.
