Best experience ever
Thank you Chef and Staff for an amazing degustation journey. What an experience to remember. That food was next level! Booked a month prior and got exactly what was expected and more.

Fine dining indeed
Before you even properly get there, this place is like nowhere you’ve ever really been. The hotel occupies huge grounds so you are taken from reception to the restaurant by golf cart - and it’s a journey of a good 5 minutes or so, swooping down lush, gently lit pathways towards the river. The restaurant is open plan with a mix of tables and private cocoons that you can book for no extra cost provided you do so a bit in advance (we went outside of high season and booked a 9.15pm table on a Sunday night about 2 weeks in advance). They offer a la carte and degustation menus and a vegetarian version of both. We had a dedicated server, Agus, who was so friendly and helpful and made us feel extremely comfortable. We had the 5 course degustation menu with wine pairing. The food was delicious and creatively presented. I’m vegetarian and I felt extremely well catered for. It was my husband’s birthday and he got an extra course of birthday cake and the staff sang him “Happy Birthday”, which was both lovely and hilarious. As other reviews have mentioned yes it’s not cheap, but as a special treat I think it’s still amazing value for money. We had the tasting menu and wine pairing and a cocktail each and still paid under £200 for a truly special evening in a beautiful place. Plus riding the golf carts is awesome fun ;)

Most scenic/ romantic place Ever !
This is truly one of those restaurants that you have on your bucket list. It was such a beautiful and magical place, to be right next to the river banks , sipping on fine wine and eating delicious top notch food. It doesn’t get better than that. Truly an amazing, unique experience coming here . The service was great , food was up to par , the view was magnificent. I can honestly say there was nothing wrong about this place. When I go back to bali I seriously can’t wait to go back here and experience Magic again. A tip: it’s best to come when the sun is about to set?
