A great experience and it comes from a non vegetarian person like me. The food is very good and filling. It is mostly vegan and vegetarian but you can get dishes with chicken or fish which are tasty. We stayed at the Alaya Jembawan Resort so we ate two dinners and breakfast at the place. The food was excellent and very interesting. The deserts were very good and the staff polite and helpful.
Our server Ary is an asset to the place!!!
Prices are good compared to other places in Bali.

Thank Andreas S

Not sure what the other reviewers ordered, but I can attest to the Shroom sandwich; which was spot on. I mean you can get some half cooked meals with old rice at another location for a quarter of the price (20k rup). Or you can get quality meal, which has a decent serving size imo.

I like how the restaurant appears to have a zero waste policy in place and is kept very tiddy. They serve filtered water with each meal as well. Service was great, as after they served me they actually check up on me, which in my experience has been rare in Bali. So I didn't have to hunt down a waiter.

I've eaten at many Local Indonesian (warung) and company owned food places, a lot of them are the usual overpriced and hectically run for what you get in service and especially food quality.

After finished our yoga session in a yoga studio on jembawan street, we were looking for restaurant which serves healthy food and drinks, then we found this restaurant since it is very closed to our yoga studio.

This restaurant has heaps of healthy foods (vegan, vegetarian, white meat and fish), as well as choices of unique healthy juices. We had cinderella salad, vegan japanese sushi bowl, and white choco pudding as a dessert. Everything was sooo good and fresh !! For the drinks we had strawberry blondie and their infused water. Don't forget to try the coffee here as they have fresh and strong coffee. For us the price here is reasonable for such quality.

In addition, the service was excellent and their staffs here were extremely friendly. We highly recommend this place for those who are looking for healthy foods and drinks!!

The menu is very confusing and the bill was expensive for what we ate (quantity and quality). A conceptual restaurant on this type of islands is bit of a shame if you like to eat local food. I'll admit that the staff is lovely though.
