It's definitely not a bistro and I wouldn't say the person preparing the meals is a qualified chef, just a cook, the menu needs a complete change, I would suggest the cooks change, or educate them self more maybe by studying more or re assessing there qualifications, every other restaurant on the street has suburb dining and execution to their...

The staff at this place made our Bali stay extremely memorable :) Over a 7 night stay we spent three of these at this restaurant because they impressed us so much! The location was extremely convenient, right in the heart of Seminyak. The staff really topped off the nights, folding little flowers for us out of serviettes and plenty of... More

The evening started fairly pleasantly with a table at the front -though the view was a half finished building site. After a couple of mediocre cocktails, the starters arrived: spring rolls and stuffed mushrooms. While more than edible they weren't in any way spectacular. That's when the fun begun. After over an hour's wait for mains which never came, and... More

We sincerely apologise for the wait time on your Main Meals on this evening. Please keep in mind that this was the evening before Nyepi, the Balinese Sacred Day of Silence - which is our most intense service period of the year. Only a handful of restaurants are open in Seminyak, as they have an exclusion to open if attached... More

The food was very good and helping was good too. Needs more lighting though and waitresses should be tad bit attentive, had to look around couple times and call three times while the girls were busy chatting behind the bar cause they served us appetizers without plates!!!

I refer the 'great ambiance' as glamor surrounding where you can witness busy pedestrian who did not yet decided where to eat or drink. There are numbers of restaurant, cafe and bar in the same compound you can choose from. BBK offers both indoor and outdoor seating that we sit the outdoor that was lovely. Food-wise, my steak is big... More

We had the club pizza which did not taste very fresh. Bacon was very iffy. Also had chicken satay sticks which were average at best. Had to go to waitress to ask for service twice and restaurant was far from busy. Would not go back.

We are here once on our honeymoon after a night of shopping. Prompt and friendly service, excellent food and super-cold bintang! Spag Bol is especially good! Will be back.
