what happened in the kitchen?
We went to this place 8 times and i have to say that the last 3 times where dissapointing.. really bad actually ! I think they must have a new chef which is totally not for the better. we use to love the beef tartare .. yesterday it was tasteless and they served it with old chips so i had to send this back . I took a double choripan instead which was really dry this was the case the last time as well. after our previous time i actually said to my girlfriend that i never want to go here again but yesterday she really wanted to try it one more time and i wish we didn’t . My girlfriend was also dissapointed as she ordered a caesar salad which was 80k ++ but we had to look deep in the bowl for the salad .. the portion is really too small and tasteless . my girl ordered extra chicken but got 3 really little pieces of chicken which they also charged us 25 k extra for. So with a caesar salad for around 130k you expect a meal salad but it was not even a starter .. it was really a joke ! Its not the most expensive restaurant but also not cheap so for about 300k you expect a decent meal here in Bali .. really too bad but not at this restaurant anymore ! I have to say that the pastry and sausages from the deli are still good! But guys please change your chef and don’t be so stingy with your portions! I have to say that the service is good .. we had a really friendly waiter who did really his best last night .. We used to see the owner sometimes a few months ago but the last times we went he was not there .. maybe better be there more often owner of El Merkat because your place is going down !

Average drinks but great food
We went in for a morning coffee. The flat white was luke warm milk, couldn’t really taste the coffee. The frappe was too creamy. The service wasn’t that good. Felt like they were trying hard to be an upper class restaurant but forgot the fundamentals. The food however was delicious.

So Ive come here a couple times already and have always told my friends about the delicious wagyu burger they have. Last time I went was just a couple days ago and the beef was cooked to perfection. Brought my friends today and was dissapointed with the look and size of the burger. Beef was cooked too well and the size of the burger to bread ratio was confusing? PICTURES POSTED BELOW. The first picture was the burger I had a couple days ago and the next 2 are the ones I received today. Please check well, hopefully will be better next time. Other than that, great service, lovely restaurant.
