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.

I dined here tonight on a recommendation. Not long after I sat down I was brought a large glass of water with a slice of lemon/ lime. I had the chicken curry (as recommended by other reviewers). It was delicious. The wine list was quite extensive and the by the glass selection was adequate. The wine serve was reasonably large... More

The problem with Cairns, as everyone knows who lives here, is the consistency with food quality and service levels. Most of the service is backpacker orientated so at a lot of places you have to take that into consideration. The other and more important factor is the consistency and quality of the food. You can go to a lot of... More

If your in Cairns and want a wonderful dining experience then Bay Village Balinese would be one of my choices. They offer a plentiful range of options, but if you're in the mood I'd go with the 10-dish tasting platter, which is a bargain, and has all their signature dishes. Must must do!

I headed to the Balinese restaurant in the hotel that I had read was pretty good. Although I had to wait at the bar for a while speaking to the Czech bartender (all the staff seemed to be international) since I guess there were no tables open, eventually I was seated. My vegetables in peanut sauce were very good and... More

Great atmosphere and amazing food. Service is good - friendly and prompt. Fairly priced. Only down side is parking as it's near the hospital so spots are scarce.
