There is about 80% chance that we end up at this restaurant, when we decide not to cook at home. It’s not only close to our house, it is sophisticated, modern Indonesian food served by the most friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant decor is classy Balinese and the lighting concept is minimalist . The view on the rice field is very relaying to the eye. The fresh made juices and herbal iced teas are the best we had so far on the Island. I asked to have a honeydew, lime and ginger juice…bliss! As for the food, we can recommend the Grilled Beef on Fresh Papaya Salad, The Crispy Duck Spring Rolls, the Black Pepper Fettucine, The mixed satay (see pic), Tom Gha Kai (spicy Thai soup). You can of course get the usual Nasi or Mie Goreng.
It is up market, but prices are still reasonable for what you get. Many other restaurants ask a lot of money for average food and service. The Pond is definitely not one of them.
