“Just as we expected – wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We had a lovely experience dining at Meads recently. Everything was perfect right from the moment we were picked up from our hotel until we were dropped back feeling full and satisfied. We started the meal with garlic bread, which was delicious. Not like the stale bread version usually served up in Bali but a true crisp and tasty version. My entrée was the fresh tuna and avocado sashimi salad. It was beautiful and refreshing. My only complaint was that the serving was quite large, but I couldn’t stop eating! I am a taster so usually make sure I sample everyone else’s dishes. The oysters Kilpatrick were as good as I have tried anywhere.
For mains, the kids tried the burger and Australian beef pie. Both were thoroughly enjoyed, the only comments from my teenage son between bites was – yum! Meads has a pool table which is a great way to amuse the kids between courses, allowing the adults to enjoy a little peace and quiet and truly savour the meal.
My husband’s ribs were wonderful. He loves ribs but had a terrible dish at another restaurant a few nights earlier. It was a very brave choice of his as he really was put off ribs after his earlier experience. After Meads ribs, he has now fallen in love all over again. My red emperor was perfectly cooked and the black tom mash – heavenly. Not to mention the grilled fresh asparagus.

The kids managed dessert but I cannot remember what they had. I was so stuffed I had stopped tasting by this stage, but I do know that they enjoyed it.
In summary, all dishes were prepared with wonderful fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection. The wine list is also adequate with choices to suit every budget. This had to be one of the best meals we have ever had, it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The pickup and drop off service was an added bonus.

“A taste experience in Tanjung Benoa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We were staying at Rumah Bali and were looking forward to checking out Meads having experienced many fine dining experiences at Meads Mosman Park.
Meads lived up to our expectations resulting in a great night out. Staff were very welcoming and friendly.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Had dinner there 2 days ago and immediately booked another dinner before we left that night. Next time we will be there with our foodie friends and can't wait to see what they think about the seafood. It must've been the best seafood we've had in Bali in the many years we have been coming here, the fish was not bbq'd dry, the prawns to die for, I've still to find out, what spices exactly they use.
Looking forward to another fantastic dinner tomorrow evening.
The only thing that bothered us, was the nearness to the road, but we soon forgot that, when the food arrived

“Almost Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Service usually can't go wrong in an Australian operated restaurant! Alfie welcomed us with open arms when we arrived around 8pm. The staffs were all very friendly and attentive. It was a Tuesday hence restaurant was quite quiet with only 2 small groups chilling out and left shortly after we arrive.

Before arriving in Bali, I have already emailed to make reservation as well as a surprise arrangement for a birthday cake. Alfie was already very friendly in the email.

The restaurant is alfresco and has a very laidback atmosphere. Its definitely a nice place to end a long day of sightseeing across Bali. While waiting for the food, we actually have a couple of games at the pool table which is right in the middle of the restaurant and we enjoyed the laughing over our bad skills. It was really very enjoyable and relaxing since we were the only ones around. But if it is crowded, I don't think we will play.

The food were generally very tasty with big portion. However, 4 of us were very disappintment with our overcooked steaks. To be frank, the seasoning of the meat were good but the overcooked meat were too tough, chewy and dry to be appreciated. Did feedback to Alfie and he immediately apologised and offered to change it for us. However, we do not like wasting food and were also too hungry to wait longer hence we rejected his offer and continued with what we have. This was the only negative in what had been a meal of complete positives. Nevertheless, Alfie did gave us a small discount for the steaks as compensation.

After we finished the meal, Alfie and team came out with the surprise cake for our Birthday gal and we all sang the song together. Its was a joyous celebration.

If we ever returned to Bali, we would probably drop by for another meal and I will definitely request Alfie to oversee the cooking of my steak. =)

The price can be found online if you are cost conscious. In all, this was the most expensive meal we had in Bali. But for the quality and type of food, Meads is definitely worth a visit. It may be expensive by Bali standard but if compared to Australia and Singapore standard, it is still cheaper.

To Alfie & team - Thanks for the photos and great service! Cheers!

“Seafood, out of this world.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Food was superb, best seafood I have eaten in years!

Alfie and the girls were fantastic, service was excellent, atmosphere great, and the beers are very very cold.

Sandpit for the kids is and excellent idea and very helpful when you want to eat a hot meal!!

Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, the free pick up and return to your hotel is an added bonus.
