Taking the "mick" out of tourists!
First ate at Roma 5 years ago and enjoyed the experience. Returned 3 years ago - and couldn't remember why we decided not to return. Last week, on our 3rd trip to Bali - we decided to stop and have a few drinks before flying home - They had a range of wine - the Hatten for 50,000, but instead I chose the Two Islands for 65,000. First it was served in a sherry glass! I didn't touch it - waited for waitress to return, couple of times I politely called out to her when she was close to table - but her ears were painted on! I took the glass and said to the male member of this family business, "I have ordered a glass of wine - and I want it served in a wine glass please" and left the tiny version with them. Soon after waitress returned with a small sized wine glass but mostly full of wine! - Then the memories came thundering back - why we originally decided to "black" this business. 3 years ago the same thing happened. I tasted the wine which they would be charging 65,000 for - but it was the Hatten at 50,000 in my glass. I challenged her and she blankly agreed it was Hatten - I did not ask for the bill, I left the money for a Hatten and one bottle of Bintang and handed it to her and left saying this is the for hatten, which is not what I ordered. As I walked away, the mother is calling out and waving the money saying not enough. Loudly I told her she is ripping the tourists off and that is really bad for business and I for one won't be back. I told them you don't rip the tourists off. You are being paid for what you served me. Enough said - I wouldn't encourage anyone to go and won't be back. They missed out on our business for the next 2 or 3 hours as well!!! Silly them!!!!

4 schrimps billed as 1.1kg
Nice evening. Nice dinner. Friendly service. ‘Where do you stay?’, answering ´at the Belmond Hotel next-door’ was probably not a good idea. The bill came doubled. 1.1kg for 4 jumbo prawns and 5.2kg for 4 local lobsters making it a €60 per person meal. We showed some resistance towards that extravagant bill but were friendly informed that 4 prawns normally come for 1.2kg. Nonsense of course but not worth ruining our fantastic holiday in Indonesia. Be attentive ;-)

We tried the sea food in Jimbaran twice at Teba before going to Roma and the food was very good. Don’t bother, just go in another place.
