“Best brownies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We are here after dinner, so we only order dessert and tea. Superb brownies with the perfect warmness, topped with nice light tasting vanilla ice cream (more like gelato to me). Wonderful!

“Excellent fresh food in a lovely setting with great service - what more could you ask for?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

Akar was a refreshing change to the standard Indonesian fare of nasi goreng and satay. The menu was inventive and creative while being made with local top quality organic food but at a very reasonable price. The staff were friendly and helpful (which made a nice change to some other experiences we had in Bali) and the stream running past the back deck makes for a peaceful setting. We happened to find this on our first day in Lovina and ended up going back every day!

“Great place for fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

After studying and travelling around Indonesia for six weeks (and with two months to go!), my friends and I really wanted to find a good place with legitimately good western-fusion-fresh food. We are all vegetarian (but can imagine anyone could find something there!) and absolutely loved it. Our salads were amazingly fresh, the pita bread hot and thick, and the brownies for dessert warm and moist. I got saffron couscous with grilled eggplant stuffed with feta cheese and spices--great choice. Akar Cafe is an fantastic break from nasi goreng day in and day out. I am always skeptical about going to western food places in Asia, but found this place to be absolutely amazing. The owner (an Englishwoman) was even there when we went! Great to talk to her and here about her inspiration for creating the restaurant. One thing: don't expect great internet here, and bring bug spray for the back (like all of Bali).

“A Vegetarians Dream in Lovina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Not only was it great to find a vegetarian restaurant in Lovina, but this place had the best food. We went back everyday for a week. The smoothies and ice cream were great too and we ate almost everything on the menu. AND bonus free wifi, what more could you want!

“Great Vegetarian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

This food was stunning, fresh and full of flavour we enjoyed several lunches here. They offer free Wifi which is handy when your travelling. The restaurant is very little and looks out over a small stream.
