We had dinner here on a Monday night about 2 weeks ago, and the restaurant is surprisingly quiet, only 4 or 5 tables occupied... The restaurant has a nice ambience: simple and modern, not the usual Balinese charm, but still lovely. We had some free starters, and lobster salad for entree which was tasty. For main, my husband had stuffed... More

We tried this restaurant after all the rave reviews and were not disappointed at all with the food and the attention to detail from all the staff. The staff were all very friendly. Food and drinks all very reasonably priced as well. One thing that you might like to change is the glasses that you offer for water they are... More

This restaurant is tucked away on a side street and a little hard to find but definitely worth the search. Not the cheapest around but of very good quality. We sampled the surf n turf (excellent), the salmon with ginger cream (also excellent), a couple of starters (guess what) and added a bottle of wine for a total of around... More

Excellent service from beginning to end, excellent food served promptly and efficiently, a nice ambience to eat in ( no blaring music in the background!). A five star meal on a 3 star budget.....we had the lobster and stuffed... More

Tucked away and hard to find but probably one of the better dining experiences in Sanur. Doesn't compare to the swish Seminyak trendy spots but very nice regardless. Cocktails are great - very generous size and cheap!.

My husband & I visited Kayu Manis on a rare child-free evening out, as it was recommended by members of a dining forum for Sanur. It was an excellent choice! The restaurant itself has a lovely ambience - quiet, elegant & understated. The meals were delicious from start to finish. A complimentary Amuse Bouche of Salmon quiche and the light... More

Ate at this restaurant after reading review from tripadvisor. Not disappointed at all. Staff had uniforms. The open kitchen was spotless. Very professional. Service was excellent. Lucky we booked or would not have gotten a table. Most memorable was the fish wrapped in bacon with a creamy balsamic sauce. I thought it a strange combination ...but it was just delicious.... More
