Lovely Asian Meals Offered Between the Lovely Paddy Field

Pamper Your Eyes by Seeing the Beauty of Paddy Field Whilst Having the Lovely Asian Foods – Thai Tom Yum, Malaysian Curries, Seafoods and Many More..


So here it is.. the place that can makes you relax whilst enjoying the scenery of fresh and green rice field and listening to some jazz & chill-out music offered by Warung HOtei. Located in Kerobokan, Bali, it is one of the simple and beautiful restaurants which worth a try.

They open from breakfast until dinner and offer the variety of Asian foods- Malaysian laksa, Vietnamese spring rolls, Thai tom yum goong, seafood, fried rice, etc until sandwiches, fresh salads, grilled beef and many more. You can go there not only for the foods but also for the tea time or having some coffee for your peaceful late afternoon..

You should try their desserts as well. My recommendation is their HOtei Toblerone Cheese Cake. It’s so delicious! And also, another positive comment that I would give for this restaurant is the service. Those fast response people over there always ready to assist you when you need anything. That’s always my main consideration in reviewing restaurants or thinking to come back to one restaurant. The service is number one. As I mentioned before in my previous blog, no matter how great the restaurant is, if the service is poor, I definitely won’t come back..

I came to this restaurant some times with friends, boyfriend or even alone with my laptop when I need to do some works! With the fast internet connection and cozy atmosphere, it helps me a lot to focus doing my work. This is the type of small restaurant which make me feel really homie and I am sure you will love it as well..

“Eat Fresh Live Well” are the words that you will see once you step your feet on this lovely Watercress Bali . As the motto that is shown above, you can imagine what kind of the food & beverages they offer. Owned by a French guy who grew up in Australia, Watercress provides a simple and comfy restaurant & cafe with the casual ambience that will make you wanna stay for the whole day. At the dinner time, they transform to be a semi fine-dining restaurant athmosphere with some delectable dinner menu offered that you shouldn’t miss as well.

Situated in peaceful place, Batu Belig Seminyak, Watercress is a perfect place for you to have either a coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Accompanied by the chillin’ songs like Just Breath by Telepopmusic, Porcelain by Moby, Sheryl Crow’s songs collection, my favorite song Hold On We’re Going Home by Drake and so on.. It will make you feel like there is no need to use the earphone to listen to your own songs while doing some of your works here!

They offer various kind of salads, croissant, sandwiches, vegan menu, Indonesians, some grilled meats and seafood, burger options, plenty of interesting mixed healthy juices, smoothies, latte and many more that you don’t want to miss..

My biggest highlight, besides the ambience, in this restaurant is the service. Just amazing! The people are friendly, from the owner to all the staff.. The waitresses are always stand by for you whenever you need anything.. For me personally, let’s say, even if I was in the most fancy restaurant but if the service is poor, it will make me totally off and will never come back. But here..the service is fantastic. I believe you will love it too..

With its semi-open style area overlooking the lush garden at the back, it makes me really in love with the atmosphere.. I went there some times either for the breakfast or just hanging out and enjoying their latte.. And yes, it is also a perfect place for me whenever I need some inspiration in doing my writing works.. (as a PR practitioner in the company, 65% of my work is all about writing).

Yes! Here is my favorite seat, in the corner right next to the window overlooking the lush green garden.. Sit and feel the breeze from the outside.. Simply perfect!
