We had one meal at Sami Sami while staying at the resort. The service was lovely, but not very fast. The food was ok but not exceptional. Would probably recommend for a quick bite while in the resort.

Not what it used to be...
We visited Sami Sami for my father's birthday because he had previously stayed at the Ayana and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately with the popularity of the Rock Bar and its limited capacity, they have extended the size of Sami Sami and it has become like an overflow venue that feels like a tourist attraction, not a restaurant of any quality. Yes I agree the views are spectacular, but the service we received was pretty appalling. We booked about a month ahead and asked to be seated in a specific section. When we arrived they had not assigned us a table in that section and we not at all apologetic about it. The food was actually very ordinary, only 2 of the 6 dishes our party ordered were of a standard you would expect when they charge the prices they do at Sami Sami. Additionally the price of wine is absolutely insane, which we know it is in Bali comparatively to Australia, but particularly at the Ayana it is even more inflated when compared to other popular high end tourist spots like the Double Six Rooftop, which was around half the price for wine and just as good a view. To add insult to injury, they were advised it was for a birthday and they did nothing to make the experience at all special. I would not recommend this restaurant as there are just too many other great options that actually provide 5-star service and better value for money...

Great food beautiful views
The view is gorgeous and the food delicious. And like all the places we’ve been in Bali service is excellent. We were staying at the Ritz in Nusa Dua but wanted to have some drinks at the Rock Bar so we decided to eat at Sami Sami and we’re so glad we did. The pasta and pizza were great and the appetizer of the prosciutto burrata was delicious. The only thing that was a negative was that there were busses of tourists coming to see the sunset so around the property it was really crowded until shortly after sunset. In the future we’d avoid that and get there a bit later. The sunset was nice but we are from Arizona where there are some incredible sunsets so this sunset was nothing special. We’d definitely go eat at Sami Sami again.
