We had a lovely dinner with multiple dishes, the rijsttafel (nice table) is very much like a banquet with a selection of entrees and mains which were shared amongst us. The entree portion sizes were a little on the small size but tasted delicious. The main dishes were served with a very healthy serving of rice, which our waitress offered... More

Was staying at the Rydges Esplanade and checked Trip Advisor for nearby resturants and came across Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant which was literally across the street. Ordered the mixed satay skewers, Balinese chicken curry and rice - all were very reasonably priced. Skewers were tender and tasty and curry had authentic spices and wasn't too spicy. Was left very satisfied and... More

Little wonder this restaurant is so busy. Our group of 6 adults and 1 littlie enjoyed our choice of meals. Authentic flavours, accompaniments, and presentation made for a great dining experience. Staff friendly, efficient and restaurant atmosphere all contributed to make this a great place to celebrate our son's birthday. Next time we are visiting in Cairns we will definitely... More

Went here for 3rd time. As with previous visits great service, friendly staff and food was delicious. We had poached chicken entree w mango & salad. Mains on yellow curry seafood and duck curry were impossible to split - both fantastic. Have had duck before and each time beautifully cooked and great sauce. If you eat in one place in... More

This was the culinary highlight in entire Australia. Need six stars for this award winning restaurant. We had the Balinese menu with all that different and real tasting flavors. Nothing to complain. Really friendly staff?

We recently stayed for 4 days/3 nights at Cairns. We had dinner at 3 different restaurants each night and the also two lunches at the Esplanade. This restaurant by and far served us the best food and best service as well. The restaurant is bit expensive but everything in Cairns is. And here at least you are happy after the... More

We wanted to go somewhere with decent service and no screens or crowds of backpackers. Although it was bustling Bayleaf Balinese was perfect. The seafood was cooked to perfection and the service was original and attractive.

We luckily were able to dine multiple times at the Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant since it is based out of the Bay Village Tropical Retreat. We had several buffet breakfasts before our tours in the morning, and 3 sit down dinners over two different stays at the hotel. The breakfast buffet is probably the closest to anything American that we saw... More
