Breakfast includes free coffee. But when I ordered breakfast, the waiter did not say about it. I found out about it after breakfast. I asked the waiter for coffee and he replied that I was 10 minutes late for the free coffee. And when I...asked why you didn’t tell me about coffee when I ordered breakfast, I didn’t get a clear answer. They never gave me coffee.More

The location of the cafe is perfect, the food is also perfect, one thing that concerns me , the staff in the kitchen put their mask on the chin, why even bother wear a mask if they dont use it properly! the bartender too (he...didnt even have a mask on him ,and walked toward us to take an order and sorry I have to declined him) ... in this pandemic situation, I as a mom really want to find a place where the staff (a cafe or a restaurant) really use a protocol... either as a waitress or a cook.. Thank youMore

AMAZING PLACE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY :) will def come back asap , LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the food, so many options for meat eater and veg or gf, so hard to please our entire family ! loved that's all 60k and fresh. The staff is so sweet...and attentive, our kids had free face paint and overlook all day , we could rest and enjoy ourselves , the view, the sofas all is just perfect , feels like we're in a little oasis of paradise. ps if you love shade and fresh weather like us most sofas are in the shade ! so no sunburn! THE SEA is beautiful and clean , but with the kids we even chose the POOL day pass and it was simply 360 degrees perfection! THANK YOU GENIUS ! SEE YOU NEXT WEEKENDMore

The place is absolutely not “so nice “ all stuffs are in bad condition... but the worse thing is the famous menu where all dishes are proposed at Rp 60 000 net!!! In fact these dishes are without meat or sea foods ... but nobody...are going to tell you ... so, when they will ask you : with chicken or prawns ? You must know it should be in extra so prices are sometimes double!!! Then the drinks are extremely expensive according to the place witch look more like a warung than a restaurant... we leave in Bali and won’t come back again especially during hard Covid timeMore

Genius Cafe was recommended to us and we had lunch there. The food was fresh and very tasty and the coffee was good. Great service and menu choices. I’d like to return to try the cocktails at sunset.

Used to be a favourite, now overpriced and sneaky add-ons has left me disappointed with a place I would otherwise love visiting ... fancy paying extra for the chicken for a dish that already contains chicken? Also the new ‘all food 60k menu’ just means...you can pay 60k for a dish that is quarter of the size of the actual dish or you can just pay the full price for the regular size 🤷🏽‍♂️More

They have a very nice environment and super friendly staff, the best fish and chips on island! Healthy nice drinks, seating area in cool bamboo construction or on comfortable sofas on the beach! The only problem there is little bit slow internet especially as they...sell co working passes with speed internet advertised for 60mbs but real is about 16mbs, probably reduced due to current situation, which is ok, but could be improved! Food stays great and they have now 60k promo witch is super coolMore

Not a good experience. We have been at Genius before, as we live in Sanur, and found it overpriced and pretentious then. Now that they (claim to have) Covid-prices, and we were on the beach, we tried again, but the result was the same: the...final bill was an unpleasant surprise, the food so-so (but yes, served in hipster bowls!) and the waiters, although friendly, appear to have not heard of Covid and social distancing. Sorry, but again not a positive visit.More

They wash the salade in filtered water from the well at Mount Agung. They use the same water at Vision Villa where I stayed and it is definitely safe to drink, let alone wash salads with.
