Unique restaurant experience
I didn't read the other reviews before making the trip to Bamboo Forest and didn't realize how remote it was. The photos looked fantastic and on the map, it looks quite close to Jatiluwih so I thought it would be an ideal lunch spot. It's accessed by a road in bad shape and I was confused for much of the drive. When you arrive, at the parking lot, you walk up a long stone stepped path past an abandoned dilapidated building and I was worried that the restaurant had closed down. Once we found the restaurant and saw the beautiful setting, spread, and heard the flute playing in the forest, the bizarre trip to the restaurant just added to the charm. In my opinion, the posted photos don't do the restaurant justice. There is an atmospheric quality of Bamboo Forest that is hard to capture in a photo. The food was delicious, the staff did an amazing job at adapting all the dishes to be gluten free so I could eat them, and they were lovely to chat with. The Batukaru temple and Jatiluwih rice terraces were gorgeous but Bamboo Forest ended up being the highlight of the day.

Well worth a visit
We were recently in Bali and took part in a jeep safari, an amazing experience in itself, which included lunch at the Bamboo Forest Restaurant. It was absolutely brilliant, we've never been anywhere like it, right in the middle of the forest, we saw species of plants and trees we'd never seen before, heard unusual bird calls and animal noises, and were given a very warm welcome at the restaurant. The food was fabulous - more than plenty of it, and really excellent quality. Not the easiest of places to get to, but well worth taking it in if you can.

Unique and very atmospheric
We visited this restaurant as part of a WakaLandCruise, and so can’t comment on the value for money. However, the fact that it is small and hidden in the forest makes it quite elite. It is very atmospheric on the jungle hillside, and the sound of the bamboo music below, and the thunder overhead (!) made it even better. In our case, we were supplied with an excellent buffet and choice of drink. I don’t know whether other tours visit this place, but this restaurant was an excellent part of the excellent WakaLandCruise.
