Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food and service here are amazing. We had the spring rolls and satay to start, seafood platter for two for mains. I cannot recommend them highly enough. We enjoyed it so much we came back again even though we were only in Bali for...a week. A must try.More

We booked here because we had a lovely meal a few years ago so decided to come back. First impressions were not good, the place looked tired and a little scruffy.. more like a cheap cafe than a proper restaurant we had cocktails to start...but every single one of ours (4 pax) were not what we expected .. they tasted very weak as if the glasses were just simply introduced to whatever bottle with alcohol, however, give the waiter his due, he did come back with the respective bottles and "improved" our drinks The food was lovely, I had a green curry and the other members in our little group also enjoyed their food. So yes, all good in the end. Would we come back if ever in Sanur again? Noni don't think so There are plenty ++other places to choose from.More

Had heard excellent feedback so tried The Glasshouse. Good menu. Staff lovely. Enjoyed my meal however the evening was definitely tainted by a lady who seemed very privileged speaking loudly and encroaching on staff time. Doesn’t sound much but her entitlement really was off putting....I later discovered she was the owners daughter. Coconut crusted fish was good. Lemon meringue average Would eat there again.More

Booked online at the last minute, no issues getting a table, and the restaurant responded quickly. The Glass House is a lovely venue consisting of both reasonably sized indoor and outdoor seated areas. Decor is lovely and very welcoming. Service is good being attentive but...not overbearing. We shared bruscetta and salt n pepper squid for entrees before tucking into a meat pie, crumbed prawns, steak, and classic fish & chips for mains. A tip for the kitchen would be to ensure pies are not over-cooked as the pastry becomes hard and the filling dry. But otherwise, the food was well presented and very tasty! Pricing is above average for Sanur. Worth a visit!More

We returned after a nice meal in 2019. Regretfully not up to expectation this time and especially for the price. Fish was nice but dry. Calamari and hand cut chips undercooked. Ham and cheese toasty chosen for my son and an easy meal but crucified...and not consumable. Waited over an hour. I’m disappointed I didnt complain but was our second night back in sanur and sort of took it as it was but since been to two brilliant establishments. Sorry guys but need you need to lift.More

This is the 2nd time we have visited Bali, in particular Denspasar Sanur and the fabulous restaurant, bar the is the Glass House. Besides the fantastic food, what makes the Glass House special, is its staff. Friendly , informative, always looking to please and always...smiling. We first came just before Covid, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the high standards have been maintained, even improved on, if that's possible. We actually ate there several times, each time, the high standard was maintained, truly amazing. Keep it up, look after your staff and fingers crossed , see you if not next year, the year after.

Fantastic food. Favourite. Seafood platter amazing, however unable to source the lobster so compensated with extra prawns. Others dining had the porks ribs which were beautiful and the garlic prawns with pasta. Dessert lemon meringue pie nearly the best ever had. Took our own wine....Very cheap corkage. Very inexpensive meal. Service very good. Will definitely be back.More

A very disappointing experience. Ordered one starter 2 main courses. Starter of calimari for my wife arrived served with chips along with my main course, the fish basket. Explained that the calimari was for a starter, waitress said it was result of new waiter, should...he be taking orders? Or was it fault of kitchen not reading order?.Calamari was returned to my wife without chips and was little cold by now. My fishbasket was very mediocre, overcooked cold prawns, cold onion rings or calamari, quite soggy, two pieces of fish were OK and chips not very hot. My wife's steak arrived covered in sauce, this was ordered with sauce separate, it was taken back to kitchen and served with sauce separate, however the sauce had been washed off.By now her meal was not very hot and I had finished mine. To summarise I found it to be overpriced and over rated, they also have + +. I won't return, there are far better restaurantsMore
