Great food, great view, great discussions
Visited here three times for dinner in the period of two weeks. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the simple tables overlook the lovely and peaceful rice fields and provide a great view of the mountain. The food is really fine. The chef trained in hotel restaurants, and makes really delicious food from scratch,... yes some of the more complex dishes take a bit of time, but it seems to be a result of them making each dish on order. The ingredients are super fresh, the flavours are nicely balanced, and the sauces are home-made. The staff is really nice, and it is always amazing how much good-will can be generated by trying to speak just a little bit of Balinese to the locals - Swastiastuu and Suksema go a long way! The chef came over to talk to us each night, and by the last night we were locals so we talked about recipes and ingredients, and he talked us through the preparation of his lemongrass samba, and his peanutsauce with coriander root. Really interesting and now we will try some of these dishes when we get home! This was one of our favourite places to eat in all of Bali - both for the food and the ambiance! Highly recommended. ...and if you are interested in knowing more about balinese cooking - take some time to talk to the chef!

Totally recommend this restaurant. The food was really good. All the dishes were amazing. Taste excellent. The grilled fish was fantastic, lots of flavouring. Food took a while but quality of food was well worth the wait!!!

Beautiful view of Mt Agung.
I have seen this warung reviewed before and thought the place to be up in the mountains, entered from the busy highway once you walk up the steps and are seated it truly feels like your in the true country with lovely views of working rice paddies and clear view of Mount Agune, she was puffing up white smoke at the time,spectacular, then comes the varied menu, food was great drinks cold, and staff lovely, cant wait to go back.
