The best restaurant in Lovina–by far! The dishes are truly delicious and the price is good. Very nice ambience as well. We've been here several times during our stay in Lovina, not disappointed once. Highly, and highly recommended!!

Great breakfast and good coffee in a nice, cozy atmosphere. Fruit salad and crêpes were fantastic. Staff could be a little bit more friendly.

Lovely place that is linked to charity. The decor is lovely, colorful and eclectic. The food is good, we had the nasi campur and falafel. Both where really good. They also serve very good milkshakes and decent coffee. The service was great and fast, maybe to fast because the samosas could have been warmer. Butt that minor detail aside they... More

Really great concept and very delicious food. A real shame about the portion sizes. I'm not sure if dinner works differently to lunch, however our Mei Goreng at lunch was amazing and covered the plate. We then followed it up with pancakes. 3 big fat ones! We loved it so much we went back for dinner a day later. We... More

Bit disappointed after reading some of the reviews. Curry was pretty bland and had too much potato. Iced lemon tea was standard. Friendly and prompt service. Choice of music was interesting and by interesting I mean depressing. However, always happy to support a non- for profit org.

The atmosphere was a bit depressing, especially with the type of music playing, kind of wanted to drown my sorrows in more alcohol (never a good idea). The service was quick, the food ok, I had the beef rangdang and the meat was really chewy. I won't be going back with so many other options available in the area.

Read the reviews & decided to come here. Food was really good & all for a good cause. The Indonesian soup was in a small bowl but it was very tasty & came with rice. Quality over quantity I suppose.

I tried this cafe, because it was listed as no 3 in trip advisor. The staffs are nice, the prices are normal and the food just regular. Nothing special with this place if your with family. But if you want to chill out with your, this could be your place 😊
