Love the service and the food😊
I went to the restaurant with my mother since we stayed in the hotel and didn’t want to go too far for dinner. But I am totally glad that we didn’t go out! I love the Indonesian food here! The platters are just good for two. I wouldn’t recommend a starter since it comes with a soup. And definitely recommend the Bali wine! And get a seat around 66:00-7:00pm. The atmosphere is great! Thank you for everything! Suksma!

A lovely experience
I booked our table months in advance and was a bit concerned at having to email across copies of my passport and credit card. I therefore emailed one half and faxed the remaining half. We chose to book the Bird's Nest rather than the Infinity pool. We figured that people would walk past the table in the pool and stare at you and we were right. Additionally, we visited during monsoon, so the Bird's Nest gave much more protection from the elements. We also booked the 6pm sitting as we would see the sun set and wouldn't be in the dark for the whole meal. This did prove to be the best sitting. I had the veggie meal and my husband had a meat based meal. To be perfectly honest, I cannot remember much about my meal at all, as I was constantly getting up and down to look at the view, the river, the mountains and the fireflies as they flew past. However, my husband ordered the beef chateaubriand and he enthused over this for days afterwards. We had a chocolate bomb for dessert that opened out like a flower once hot chocolate sauce had been poured over it. This was delicious. A wonderful experience, in a beautiful setting, with a lovely waiter - definitely worth repeating.

Great waitstaff, but everything else is a disappointment
For such an exclusive and expensive place, this may have been the most underwhelming meal and dining experience I've ever had. I'll just break this down into a few categories. Staff - The waitstaff was incredibly nice and attentive without being overly intrusive. They absolutely know what they're doing. View - Depending on the time of year, the sunset changes timelines. Unfortunately, the night we had booked, another couple was getting married, and so we completely missed the sunset. I know this is one of the big selling points, so why weren't we notified that this was occurring? Privacy - Also, the table isn't truly private. There is a frequently used walkway where passerbys just gawk at you. Also, there's another heavily used room across the way that just pulls down a curtain. If you're looking for somewhere intimate, this isn't it. Food - And now for the main course! Or lack thereof, as the case may be. The food felt like I was eating something out of a can. The bread was clearly frozen and reheated. The soup tasted something akin to tomato sauce from a Spaghettio's can. And the scallops could literally be used to play Handball. For such an expensive price tag, I would hope to get a phenomenal meal and experience in return. This is none such a place for that.
