We visited this restaurant for several time. The food just OK for this restaurant. We love their pizza. The location in front of main road and they didn't provide parking area.

We went for lunch as we liked the decor & had read good reviews. The BLT was lovely & the nasi goreng was nice enough (nothing special) but we heard a lot of road noise, even though we were seated right at the back. I guess it would be quieter at night. Staff fine but not overly friendly. All ok... More

I love chicken cordon bleu, but I didnt like what they served to me. It had plain taste. The staffs are friendly and the place is quiet.

We had a lovely meal of Balinese food at this restaurant. The seafood and vegetables were very fresh and cooked beautifully. The price was modest and we took advantage of Happy Hour drinks. Staff were very friendly and helped with making selections. The restaurant has bright clean decor with local art. There is free transport to the restaurant from local... More

We visited on 2 occasions, once with a large group of family and friends and then as a couple. As always the service is great and the Bintang ice cold. On both occasions Ayu was cooking, so the food was exceptional. We have been visiting Friends for 10 years now and will continue to do so in the future. Highly... More

I was recommended Friends for seafood. I had the seafood basket, I think the chef had a bad day as the mahi mahi was very dry, over cooked. The squid was very rubbery and chewy. The prawns were ok. Nicely presented though but I will give it a miss next time.

Had walked past Friends many times during our stay in Candidasa & decided to have our last lunch there. We explained to the waitress that we wanted a quick, light lunch & she suggested a fish dish which was perfect. The restaurant is very clean & bright with colourful freshly painted tables & walls. Our lunch arrived quickly & was... More
