We visited this “Place” on a rainy Sunday for lunch and made the following observations and experiences:
The inside seating is very small: one “Sofa seating group” (half blocked by a mattress which is normally used outside), four tables with altogether 8 chairs.
There were 3 other guests present at the time of our visit.
The (pregnant) waitress was not smiling and had to ask two times which soup was on offer. The highly praised service was “normal to average”.
The menu is very limited and soon we discovered that the Glasshouse cannot be called “Restaurant” - it is really just a Café which serves some snacks and cakes.
The only warm dish was a soup (tomato or potato and leek) and then there were some cold snacks (salads and sandwiches). In addition some homemade cakes were presented in a glass cabinet.
Where are the meals like Hamburger, Stuffed baked potatoes or Nasi Goreng, which have been mentioned by others, who have been here before ?
The taste of all what we tried was ok but not more - the so called “complimentary chips” which were served with the sandwiches were not fresh and like rubber.
The ambience of this café is also normal and nothing special.
And as we asked for the bill we got a shock:
235.000 rupees (for 1 cup of tea, 1 small beer, 2 sandwiches, 1 salad, 1 soup and one cake). So the price is high here - compared with other “restaurants” in Sanur.
We came with high expectations (which were evoked by the reviews here in TA) and left disappointed !
As a side remark: Good reviews for the coffee, the cold beer and the thick shakes bring this “place” high in the trip advisor ranking of restaurants in Sanur. That is not correct and gives a complete wrong picture. It is wrong to compare this venture with excellent restaurants in Sanur like “Charming”, “Resto Ming” and “Kayu Manis” - if you do it, you compare Jack Fruit with Durian…………!
