Nice, but Neglectful, and Not Worth the Wait
The food was average, and in fact the allegedly "big" satay for two was disappointing. I've had better and bigger satay at the chain restaurant, Senyan Satay. While the staff was initially nice, and apologetic when we waited way too long for our food, it was not enough to make me low mark this establishment. I will credit them with offering a modest discount for their screw-up that we had to argue was their fault, but that only saved them from a ranking of 1 star. We were two families, so had a relatively large party of 9. When we waited way too long for our food, they tried to convince us it was because we were a large party as if it were somehow our fault. We noticed that three (!) other parties had arrived and ordered after us and they all received their food before us, while some of them finished eating and had the table cleared before we even got our food. To top it, one of those groups got the same satay dish and got it before us (!), and others got their pizza before us too. How the does that even work?? The total for the other 3 tables exceeded our own number, so their excuse about us being too big for the kitchen to handle in a timely manner was completely invalid. The food ultimately was not even worth the wait. I understand sometimes leaving our western expectations behind, but there's a limit to it -- and maybe that's it; we were not of the right "look" so the "bules" that look the part were taken care of first. Ironically I usually tip beyond the included service charge, and the better the service the more generous I am -- their loss.

Farewell to Bali
One of the best restaurants in Bali. Evening breeze from beach was welcome relief for heat of the day. Aussy wines were refreshing after so many Indonesian wines in past weeks. Even the ice cream seemed to be my favorite Wall from the UK. Our steaks were cooked just as we ordered. Could not have found a better place for a final dinner in Bali.
