When looking for a Paella in Bali has come to an end. I must say Movida Bali has got the best Paella and Fideua in Town. The small tapas pintxos inspired we had prior the mains were absolutely full of flavour and culinary technic.

I get short of words to recommend this place. It is worth every penny and you will have me back very soon. Thumbs up to Maria the manager on her great hospitality.

We are great fans of Melbourne Movida and have been going there for years however this was really disappointing. Hardly any customers so we did receive attentive service. But the food was very ordinary. The ingredients second rate and not well prepared for dishes we like in Australia. The fit out is lovely but quite large especially for the few patrons rattling around. Sad that they still charge the same for a second rate meal. Sorry Frank it doesn't work in Bali , we cook your food better at home.

Dear Heffie

Thank you for your review and all for your feedback.
We are sorry your experience was not up to your palate. At Movida Bali we outsource locally some of our ingredients and most of the dishes are not the same as the Movida Melbourne.
However, we would love for you to give us another chance, If you are in Bali again, please let us know, and this time we will explain our dishes more clearly, and with bit of "creative ordering" we can definitely find a more than satisfying meal within your budget.

Best Regards

Alejandro R.

MoVida is a cutting edge Spanish restaurant. It is located at Potato Head Bali. We had 6 tapas and two mains. Our friends had the Chef's Special. All the food was outstanding as was the service.

We were looking forward to visiting Bali Movida after some great meals at the Melbourne restaurants over the years. Pretty much everything lived up to expectations. Highlights were a rosella cocktail, signature anchovy and smoked tomato sorbet on toast (love this dish), brilliant tuna sashimi in a macadamia gazpacho, and a slab of char grilled hangar (flank) steak with fantastic flavour and texture. The tiger prawn ceviche was a bit of a miss for us, but no problem as everything else was a winner. Small list of wines by the glass, but between us we sampled their rose, Pinot and verdelho and all were pretty good. Staff were very attentive and helpful, though by the time the 4th one introduced himself and asked our names it was too a bit too attentive! All up a great dinner, highly recommend.

While the food was enjoyable, there were too many different staff all vying for attention at our table. Inane questions and over servicing made peaceful conversation between my husband and I difficult. Not pleasant. Would not return

Dear Guest

We much appreciate your feedback both good and not so good about your recent visit to our restaurant.
On behalf of all the staff we extend you a sincere apology for the excessive service and good intentions of our staff that did not allowed you to enjoy your dinner with us. At the end they just wanted to provide you with a memorable service.
On the other hand we are glad to see that you found the food enjoyable and we do hope you see this as just an isolated event and hopefully on your next Bali trip you visit us again.

Sincerely
Alejandro Rueda
