Tourist Trap - Yet Not Too Bad
The restaurant is located on the road to Tanah Lot and very obviously caters to tourists only. This is manifested by the prices (double of what one pays in other warungs) and the choice of dishes on the menu. The portions are on the smaller side and the food is of average taste. Service is average, too.

Western food; almost at Bali prices
Restaurant run by the owner of a company we hired for a day trip - so I thought I would give it a try. Definitely aimed at Westerners, but not in a bad way, and it was nice to have western food after a lot of Nasi Goreng's in a row... Reasonable quality and pricing about 50-60% of what you would pay in Sydney or elsewhere in the west. Good spot near Tanah Lot Temple but on a busy road 2199

Wrong Choice Of Food But Perfect Choice Of Restaurant
Indonesian cuisine can get tricky if you do not have the tongue for it. And if you have the Indian tongue, where all tones are in the superlative, Balinese food may taste a bit bland. My wife and I visited the Warung Bamboo at a time when we were crazy hungry! We had been mesmerised by Tanah Lot Temple and the Pura Taman Ayun Temple's beauty. But when hunger pangs raise their heads, you know what happens... This is when we arrived at this beautifully-located restaurant amidst the super-green rice fields. The setting did soothe our hunger pangs to an extent. We were greeted by a friendly-looking waitress who showed us to our table for two. We ordered a Bebek Betutu (Steamed duck marinated in Hoi Jor and served with steamed rice) and an Indonesian Chicken Fried Rice. The food was good but not excellent. In fact, the Indonesian Chicken Fried Rice was better. I had a problem with the Betutu, probably because I asked them to make it spicy. I was bored with bland and my Indian tongue was dying for spicy. However, when I tasted the Betutu, my taste buds went into shock mode. It was so damn spicy that for a while I could not feel anything. My ears went red. I let the spiciness settle, my taste buds constantly searching for the real taste. But I was a bit disappointed. I have had lots of super-spicy food in my life, and I keep having them. But this time, I couldn't settle on a definitive taste. It was all spicy and that's about it. The steamed rice made balanced the taste a bit. The duck was overcooked though. Still, I enjoyed the food, mainly because of the condiments that came with the main dishes. I loved their shrimp chips! In short, maybe it was the wrong choice of food that kind of spoiled made my lunch less-enjoyable. I should have gone for the barbecued duck instead. But I really wanted to try the Betutu, having read about it so many times on the Internet. Please do go through the photos below to have an idea about the setting and the interiors of Warung Bamboo.
