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.

Staff were very accommodating for our late booking. We had amazing crocodile sate, and the duck curry was out of this world. Great cocktails also, and all at reasonable prices for the great quality.

We went to this restaurant because it looked full and interesting when we had passed it. On arriving, we discovered it had Balinese (or Indonesian) food. We ordered the rice-table menu, that has its origins in Amsterdam! The bar was excellent and the Norwegian student working the bar knew his trade. Unlike elsewhere in North Queensland, he immediately made a... More

We were staying at the adjoining Bay Village accommodation so this was an easy option for us but as lovers of Asian cuisine it’s somewhere we may well have chosen to eat at anyway. We took the easy option of having the set taster menu (rijsttafel) and it was fantastic. A wide variety of dishes were presented and there was... More
