The restaurant is not in the center but is worth going to because of the great food. I was there with my family this summer and enjoyed a great meal. Nice tastes and very interesting menu. I wish I had been there more days to return to this great restaurant.

Had a gorgeous feast of the banquet where you get a little bit of everything on the menu, it was delicious , only thing I missed is it was not Bali itself. Please go and have a touch of Bali. Highly recommended.

It has been some time siince I last dined in at the Bayleaf. I have had the odd take away which has always been good but it's never quite the same as dining in. I recently had lunch there with my son and we both ordered the Large Mixed Sate and the Corn Fritters. We both struggled to finish it... More

Cairns has several fine restaurants but what a great find the Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant is. The menu offerings are too good for just one visit. The staff are engaging and helpful when it comes to choosing the right meal option for each guest. We chose the outdoor seating option which suited the Cairns' weather. My colleagues started with cocktails and... More

My partner & I dined here recently after a huge week of work for us both. Unfortunately we had both had big days, and had big headaches - and the last thing we wanted to do was go out for dinner. As I'd booked quite a few days in advance, we decided we didn't want to waste our spot -... More

It was quite a busy night at Bayleaf for a Monday night in Cairns, so you should definitely book if you plan to visit Bayleaf. We ordered the tasting menu, "balinese rijsttafel", with matching wines. It included four courses, which were presented on a big sharing plate (apart from the soup) and were nicely decorated. The food was plenty for... More

Dishes are delicious. The only suggestion to make it better is to stick with grilling whole fish rather than fish fillets. I know it is to cater for western preferences but I was disappointed that the grilled fish wrapped in banana leaf was just a fish fillet. I was expecting a whole fish with yummy marinate. Less one star in... More

Very authentic and delicious meal served in pleasant, "Balinese" feeling atmosphere. The service was quite quick and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, especially if you want to get away from the tourist strip and enjoy a bit more value for money.
