We arrived in a beautiful restaurant and the staff asked for our reservation (witch we didn’t have)so the expectations where high. We found a place in the garden. Te starter was good. My main course was Ikan ala Galanga. The menu promised a fish of...the day ‘with our secret sauce full of Indonesian flavors ‘. On my dish I found a tasteless fat sauce with non Indonesian flavors at all. This kind of sauce you can expect in some American fastfood restaurant but not on an island that is famous for it’s rich flavors. The staff was very friendly A yelling cat nearby our table looking for food made my negative experience complete.More

We ate here multiple times while staying at a nearby villa for a week. It’s a fabulous restaurant with lots of options for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Be sure to get the appetizer sampler platter and save room for dessert. Thank you for being consistently...fantastic!More

The food was good and the waiting staff were excellent. I've lived in Bali long enough to be aware of cultural sensitivities around the issue but dogs have no place anywhere food is prepated or eaten. Any owner who apparently thinks it's OK to inflict...their barking pet animal on paying customers needs to get a grip. I had to leave as my food arrived because of this particular 4 legged health hazard. Not cute, not welcoming, not pleasant.More

We are staying at a wonderful place across the road called The Kampung and Galanga is 1 min walk away. It a very clean, tidy place with fantastic staff who know their way around the kitchen and FOH. The food was quick and delicious. We...will be back for sure... good job Galanga. 👍🏻👍🏻More

We were told that normally you need to make reservations to go here, but because of the slow down due to the Corona virus, most places in Amed were slow. Understatement. We went to Galanga around 5pm and there was not a single other customer...there. We sat in one of the little huts in the garden. The staff provided a mosquito coil to help keep the bugs way. There was also a fan in the corner you could turn on if you got too hot, plus the restaurant provides free wi-fi. The service was good. The food was excellent. The presentation of the food was very nice, too, with small bowls made out of banana leaves and tooth picks. Soursop was in season so we had some soursop ice cream for dessert. It was outstanding. As some people have aid, there were some dogs and cats running through the gardens, but they all had collars on so seemed to live there. It wasn't like stray street dogs were passing through. They, along with the wandering chickens, provided a little entertainment while waiting for our meal. Prices were pretty reasonable. Two of us ate two meals, dessert, and two drinks for the equivalent of about $17 USD.More

We came here on a whim. We didnt make reservations, but if you do make sure that you ask for a Bale Bale, one of those cute little houses. When we came they were free, but they seemed to be going only to guests they...already knew. The food was really good. A bit classier then your normal warung. The service was also really good. the staff is very attentive and very friendly. We specially loved the sambal that they served with the food. Absolutely tasty. Oh yes, if you don't like cats or you have a cat allergy, don't come here.More

We have had great meals in Ubud, but this was the most memorable of them. A small, unpretentious restaurant. Simple decir, all in the open. Both the service, and *especially* the food are outstanding. We stopped for breakfast (phenomenonal "pain perdu") and we wanted to...be back for lunch. The local fish and samba were fantastic great flavors. Nothing fancy or flashy.More

Having stayed in Amed for a week now, my friend and I’ve been trying different places for dinner Galanga became our favorite. It’s on the pricier side compared to other places we’ve been to, but it’s absolutely worth it Both Asian salad with chicken and...tuna steak were amazing and the ingredients were fresh This is the first place in Bali (and we’ve stayed in Ubud for two weeks prior coming to Amed), where we could find really nice desserts, thanks to their French chef, who’s amazing at sweets :) I would definitely want to come back here for another dinner before I leave BaliMore

Searched trip advisor for a special place to go out for dinner. Wanted something more sophisticated than the usual warang in Amed. This place is nicely designed and charming and efforts are being made to create interesting meals but I think it is a bit...over blown and truly the flies were terrible.More

Each time i visit Amed i come back. They mostly use local ingredients and keep the food natural with a special taste. Friendly staff, lot's of choices. Tuna tartar salad is very tasty, as well as samosa, fish Galanga or spicy fish and their home...made ice creams. The place is always packed so make sure to get there in time or reserve.More

They are about 2km from Coral View villas, along the main road. Not sure if they deliver, though.
