We dined in this establishment on September 18th - chose it specifically because it was high up in the tripadvisor ranking for Lovina.

I ordered a pizza margherita, and my girlfriend some pasta; simple enough dishes and what seemed like sensible choices.

Sadly, these came back to bite us roughly six hours later where, in the middle of the night, we both became violently ill from food poisoning, with all accompanying nastiness. Ended up in a Singaraja hospital getting anti-vomiting shots, and the doctors even wanted to put me under IV for dehydration. Fun times.

I’ve been eager to write this review ever since, but have had to wait two days for the mere thought of that pizza not to induce more instant nausea.

Needless to say something during the making of this dinner went badly wrong, for the both of us to fall sick whilst having eaten different thing suggests a serious malpractice in the kitchen - badly stored ingredients, or perhaps plain bad hygiene.

In any event I would recommend staying well away from this restaurant, not falling sick should be the bare minimum for any paid meal, this has fallen well short of that.

We visited Buddha Bakery with friends without really knowing what to expect. When you arrive, the bakery is downstairs and the restaurant upstairs. It has a nice view over Lovina day or night. The food was amazing! They have a wide variety of pizzas but also serve satays, chicken, pork ribs, and my favourite, fish and chips. These fish and chips were incredible! Fresh pieces of tuna in a coconut batter and mahi mahi in a basil batter! The chips were good too...roasted seasoned potato wedges. Everyone enjoyed the meal and we went home full. What more can you ask for?

We have been to Ubud, Nusa Penida/Lembongang and arrived in Lovina yesterday.
We were recommended this restaurant by our homestay. It was by far the best food we had so far in Bali (and we had good food!).
The experience is amazing all the way. Lovely staff, nice surroundings and great food!
The price is a bit higher than the small places close to the beach but also 10 times better. Still we only payed about 450 IDR for 2 people 3 courses and beer so it’s very fair.
Do yourself a favour and visit Buda Bakery :)

Tucked away in a lane but with a nice atmosphere. Decor is lovely there is a long flight of stairs to walk up to restaurant part from bakery not good if you have difficulty with stairs. Food was well presented and delicious.
I had Mahi mahi and my husband had the green chicken curry. Forget about the cocktails though as they are not well made and very watery
