Food was excellent. The menu was huge and had plenty of options, we fancied Mexican food, so went for Fajita's and a burrito, both were outstanding. The drinks were great and the cocktails were especially good, happy hour until 12oClock. 29,000 Rupiah each, bargain! The manager made a... read more

Based on all of the great reviews on here, I tried out The Smiling Frog. One of the worst meals I have had in Bali !!! To say the duck was anorexic was the understatement of the year! The sauce it was covered in tasted like it had the entire contents of a salt shaker emptied into it. To top... More

The smiling frog was just round the corner from our hotel, we've tried a few in this area and this definitely had the most welcoming atmosphere. First time we came we asked for a caesar salad but wanted to add chicken as well as the bacon which wasn't on the menu which they were able to do and it tasted... More

On every visit to Bali, The Smiling frog is a must and I'm never disappointed. The food is alway of excellent quality and quantity. The service is always good. The restaurant is always clean and maintained. It's especially nice when the owner comes out to greet you and makes you feel at home...

We love our curries and this won was right up there. The mie goreng was also great. Even met the smiling frog! All in all a great... More

Quality food in a nicely decorated little restaurant close to the beach. The staff are lovely. Prices are reasonable and at dinner you are served a welcome shot and a free bruschetta apetizer. Ate here at least 8 times during our 10 day stay in Bali!

I can't believe reviewers are talking about the same place we visited. We didn't find the staff that friendly--rather, remote. Order of guacamole was maybe 1/4 of an avocado's worth. Minuscule portions of dried-out rice and beans with our Mexican dishes. Tough, not ground, beef. Grated cheese was good, and the frog decor was cute. That's the best I can... More
