An immersive experience...
Visited Friday, 19th January 2018 Family of 6 adults & 2 children (2 & 4 yr olds) We travelled from Ubud to Kintamani about an hour & a half. We reached the highlands overlooking Mt Batur & Danau Batur (Lake Batur). It was a breath-taking sight with clouds engulfing you! You have reached the pinnacle of your life! Just when you thought God has tapped your shoulders, you turn around to see a few touts with souvenirs in hand. A total letdown. Period. As weather was drizzling, we had a quick photo shoot & left this spot. We realized after the photo was bad. Rain & clouds actually made the photo look whitewashed & blurry. Also, this spot have too many touts, keep pushing you to buy stuff. The many experiences I had, try not to buy any from them. Firstly, there are shops to buy from. Secondly, and the worst part, if you buy from one you will be swarmed by the rest. We proceed to the floating restaurant way below. The road was steep & winding. The slip road into the restaurant was small & barely noticeable. We missed it the first time. This restaurant is part of a resort by the lake. But yes, they welcome the public too. 1.30pm: As we walked towards the outdoors seating area, we can feel the awe of the gigantic surrounding & the huge lake. I felt at peace suddenly, so calm & mysterious with the surrounding looking at you from afar. For me, this view & experience beats the top view. For you are now immerse within the scape & floating on the lake. Menu was simple but many dishes. The signature dish here is the Tilapia, a freshwater fish found in Lake Batur itself. Many styles to cook but the best for me was the deep-fried tilapia. The crisp outside & fresh inside, with the accompanying sambal, just blew me away. Period. Served along with the many dishes we ordered were 3 styles of sambal. All were goodness stuff especially the raw green cili padi with lemongrass sprinkle. No paste, just fresh chopped ingredients. I felt the boost in dexterity! These are local food & simply delicious. Price was also reasonable & this place does not have touts. Overall we had a unique immersive experience at Resto Apung. Good view & good food. Will definitely recommend anyone who wants a unique dining experience…

Don’t mind the flies
Yeah, it’s flies everywhere. But it’s mean the fish are fresh rights? If you’re fine the flies around you when you eating so this resto is good for you. Or you can choose in the dinning to avoid more flies.
