The family-friendly garden atmosphere with timber decks and teakwood pavilions plays host to regular traditional Balinese dance performances.
Dining and Dancing at Dandelion Restaurant
While the emphasis is on local favourites, there are also Western options available on the menu. For starters, there are spring rolls, coconut-grilled blue river prawns with lemon-basil sauce, Balinese wrap-style satay called sate lilit, and siomay steamed fish dumplings doused in peanut sauce (around USD 1-2 or IDR 18,000-24,000 per serving). Grilled specialties include fresh seafood catch of the day, chicken satay, grilled chicken breast, and vegetable kebabs, USD 3 (IDR 40,000) each. Simple items are also available, from cold cereals and parfaits, to pancakes and French toast.
The restaurant had humble beginnings, starting out as Warung Dandelion. It continuously attracted loyal customers for its authentic local cuisine and friendly atmosphere eventually evolving into a full-fledged restaurant. The leafy gardens are home to the owner’s pet bunny rabbits, which the kids will adore. Balinese music and dances are featured regularly, including every full moon. You can also join in the cultural experience and try out the gamelan or try some intricate dance moves with helpful guidance from the beautifully costumed performers.
