The one evening we decided to spoil ourselves. We found the meal to be average and highly over priced.

Bakabung has a really upmarket restaurant. The view is good, the service is good, the only issue was that it was a bit pricey.

The cuisine was a typical buffet with various carveries and starters and deserts spread around the area, none of which looked appealing. The waiting personnel were thoroughly disinterested and unhelpful. The price was exorbitant for what was on offer so we declined to eat there.
