My second visit to this restaurant, it was great the first time and just as nice the second. The food was lovely and balanced and fresh. We chose a banquet which gave us the chance to taste a range of their lovely food. The only small criticism was the service , whilst very friendly it was quite slow..we waited about... More

OMG...amazing food, helpful staff and relaxing atmosphere. Wanted to try bayleaf for a few months and was so glad i did. Balinese chefs made prawns in lime, chilli and tomatoe in coconut. It was jammed packed with tender prawns and the base of the dish was drinkable on its own. A big 👍

Having dined at Bayleaf a number of times we were drawn back because of its delicious authentic Indonesian/Balinese cuisine and to impress our Irish visitor with this Cairns dining experience. We left quite disappointed, not with the food but with the awful customer service. It was a Sunday night and not busy - the accompaniments (chili paste, prawn crisps, soy... More

Simply delicious food at its best. We went for the set menu and could not eat it all. I'm sure there was enough for 4 and we were only 2! Gordon Ramsay could not compete with this place.

We have dined here a couple of times and can only say this restaurant is unreal. The building itself is so authentic you can imagine you might be in Bali. The service is impeccable, the food just lovely. We shared 4 dishes between four of us and it was both ample and very tasty, not too spicy or too hot.... More

I've rated this restaurant twice before so why rate it again? It is one thing to have one nice meal in a restaurant. It's another to get consistently high quality. Bayleaf ticks the later box. Well done to all staff. We had a sensational meal, full of flavour, excellent presentation, and wonderful service and while not cheap ($107 for two... More

After having dinner here for the first time (Ikan Bali & Duck curry) we decided to have dinner here again when we came back to the hotel. So we did. The quality and taste of the food is just great and the dishes are served in a very nice way. Absolutely recommedable place to have a great dinner.

I was curious to try some. Balinese food in Cairns and was pleasantly surprised..it was almost as good as in Bali..not far off at all. Beautiful presentations, large portions and tasty. Unfortunately there was so much food that we could not consume it all...so when I asked for a takeaway container for our vegetable curry that We had not yet... More

Our family group of four had the platters (rice table menu) which included a suitable glass of wine with each of the five courses. We started with some amazing cocktails and great service. We were seated on the terrace which had a pleasant breeze. When next in Cairns we would certainly visit again.
