Easy place to find due to the large stuffed alligator on the entryway. They have live music nightly, usually acoustic. Beers are reasonably priced, considering you have live music and no entry fee. We would walk by nightly and if we liked the band, would stop in for a couple drinks.

By midday in the build-up of Bali, it was hot enough to fry a dead dingo's donger. As if by some mystical connection to homeland, I was called my native telepathic urges to meet my cousin-brother, my tribal skin name, Buaya (the crocodile). I had been called!

Went here for lunch I had something very simple as the club sandwich this came with fries. The sandwich was ok and the fries was supposed to be chunky ones but just crinkle cut came with the meal. Overall was fine for lunch and staff wad friendly.

Went here tonight for our last meal in Bali. We were attracted by fish menu. We both had sword fish steak which was very nice and shared a starter of wedges. Potions on large side but overall not bad evening.

Searching for a restaurant we couldn't find we ended up here. The staff was friendly but the food wasn't great, the schnitzel was ok but the taco was kind of tasteless, wouldn't go here again.. The prices were low though.
