The Glass House is that quaint building on Jalan Tamblingan you may have seen with the white plantation shutters at the front and the carosel animals in the garden. It is renowned for its fabulous cappuccino , espresso and all types of coffee and home made cakes. Full breakfast for $10 includes an array of house baked pastries, muffins and breads. Cooked items include full offering of American and Australian breakfasts. A great place to have a fresh salad or baguette for lunch and the tastiest homemade hamburgers in Bali. Dinners can often offer a degustation tasting plate of the freshest available produce in Bali at the time as well as many popular seafood and other dishes including vegetarian and the popular local Indonesian favorites. Funky tunes play, whilst you watch the world go by. Free wi-fi for doing business or just catching up on emails. Friendly staff, fresh organic ingredients, vegetables washed in bottled water for extra safety. Frosty juices, ice cold smoothies and milkshakes are a winner here. Fine quality Australian, Californian and Indonesian wine are available by the glass and the bottle at very competitive prices. You may also bring your own if you wish. The famous fresh Kelapa Muda , (young coconut) is available here for enormous health benefits.The Glass House is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the friendly atmosphere and delicious food. A place where you actually get what you ordered!! Very trendy hang out.

My family went to The Glass House on our latest trip to Sanur. We had breakfast and then went back a couple of days later for lunch. We were not disappointed on either visit. The food was delicious and drinks were cold. Great vibe, friendly accommodating staff and good value. Will definately recommend for any meal of the day and... More

My husband is usually difficult to please, however, on dining at this restaurant twice, the meals were enjoyed on both occasions. Loved the crispy sweet potato, beetroot and carrot prior to our meal. Staff were very welcoming, and friendly. Would definitely recommend the Glass House.

just had the breakfast and a coffee and although tasty there are cheaper alternatives in sanur. the waitress handed me my meal over an ashtray rather than walk around the table, a little lazy. however, the ingredients are fresh, the atmosphere relaxed and the establishmentis tastefully decorated. would consider another visit.

Generous serving of chips which are delicious~! Kudos to the waitress who helped to keep an eye on the butterfly which sneaked attacked us halfway through our... More

Menu options are excellent and service is friendly and prompt. Although, small in size enough space between tables has been considered for diners. Food was excellent and surrounds are great.

Can't say a bad word about the Glass House. No psuedo Aussie food here, just the real deal. Huge burgers with the lot, beetroot and all; meaty pork bbq ribs; chunky chips; and tender juicy steak cooked perfectly etc etc. We also ordered the chicken avocado salad expecting not much considering the small price and couldn't believe the main course...

We stopped in for a coffee & cake, they say they have the best coffee in Bali - as quite a few claim these days. My husband thought it very good, for me it was a little weak but not so much that I could be bothered asking for another shot, the Carrot cake we shared was really nice.

The place itself is nice and bright which makes it very inviting. However, when we were there, a large group was being catered for at the front end of the restaurant, which made the place feel very busy and other guests less important. Our food was ok, nothing special. We felt rushed and left pretty much straight after eating, which... More
