Scratch

#78 Jalan Pengubengan Kauh | Seminyak, Kerobokan, Bali 80361, Indonesia

Website
Improve this listing
Ranked #3 of 87 restaurants in Kerobokan
Price range: $3 - $15
Cuisines: Asian, Steakhouse, Tapas, Pasta
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Dinner, Delivery, Late Night
Description: Purposely located off the beaten paths of nearby Oberoi and Kerobokan streets, SCRATCH is a new restaurant serving up "homecooked, like your momma did it, Sunday dinner, comfort food". SCRATCH is a needle in the haystack (or rice field in this case), located on a quiet street only five minutes away from Seminyak Square. SCRATCH is smoke-free and air conditioned with an outside patio for smoking and hanging out. It's got a relaxed atmosphere and hip decor, as the walls are lined with vibrant concert posters from bands like Cake, Arcade Fire and Kings of Leon, and more than likely you'll be hearing similar bands over the speakers. The menu is equally inviting, and can best be described as gourmet comfort food. But clearly the Canadian chef/owner (conveniently nicknamed Moose) won't settle for "mom's recipes", as it is obvious he enjoys putting a unique twist on most of his dishes. Signature steaks, rustic pastas, tapas, American classics, Asian favourites, and great specials during Happy Hour (8pm-10pm)...and you can wash it all down with a mango martini or a frosty mug of beer. So, if you've got an itch...come and SCRATCH it!! NOTE: The map provided by Trip Advisor has us pinned in the wrong location. So, please call us for directions, or just jump in a taxi and tell them "Scratch restaurant, Jalan Pengubengan Kauh, next to Pengubengan Banjar". Thanks, and hope to see you here soon.

I have just had the BEST dining experience I have had, in a long time, at this restaurant. It was by sheer luck, and my sheer fruststion with the parking man at the restaurant down the road, that brought us to Scratch and I have to say that we arent disappointed ROASTED GARLIC & BACON BRUSCHETTA - excellent ULTIMATE STEAK...

Wow! This is place that you must try if you're in Bali. Location is of the beaten path, but if you managed to make your way here the reward is well worth the trip. Up on arrival Im always greeted by their very friendly and attentive staff. Better service is hard to find in Bali to be honest.. Also the... More

I was ecstatic to find a place as good as scratch so close to my house! Great comfortable restaurant with very good food. So far I have had the burger, the Philly cheese poutine, the steak pasta, and the Mint lemonade! Good wifi as well. Highly recommended.

Awesome breakfast menu - I went for the UK breakfast. Their bacon is crispy and sautéed with mushrooms, the beans are home made using their own BBQ sauce. It's a great meal. Best part is we made our reservations through their facebook page and we had their address, everything sent to us

Had a wonderful meal for four for 530 Singapore dollars. Great value for money. Had spent double this at other restaurants in seminyak for similar top quality food and surroundings. Aaron the chef welcomes you personally - v nice touch. Give it a go you will be pleased that you did.

The burgers are just fantastic. I wanted to write just that, but Trip Advisor is asking to write at least 100 characters. I simply don't need that much words to describe the Scratch burger. It's simply delicious. Great work Aaron and team!
