“Tasty....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

My husband and I visited for dinner on recent Bali trip. We made a booking earlier in the day but need not have worried as when we got there,still plenty of tables to choose from. We were picked up by the complimentary transport that this & many of the local restaurants in this part of Bali offer.
Food was nice, fresh and the side serving of salad was appreciated as this often lacks in Bali restaurants. Service was attentive and we were well looked after here. Warren the owner (who also helps in the kitchen) greets diners throughout the course of the evening to ensure all is ok.
Servings size is adequate and is comparable to many other Balinese eateries. Price is a little more expensive to other restaurants but not drastically, all in all a very nice meal.
Would return on a future visit if looking for tasty seafood.
Thanks for the pic & stubby holders- a nice momento!

“Great food and host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We were looking for a place to watch the football match between Liverpool & Man u. We found this restaurant by chance to be honest, a sheet of paper advertising it on a lamp post.

We arrived and were given a great seating position and warmly welcomed by all the staff. The food was very good and very well presented. The price was more than ok for what we had, (roast pork belly, fish snapper).

Would recommend to all, and would most definitely go again.

“Good experienc”

I would recommend meades. Food and service was good. Great cocktails. A bit more expensive than other restaurants close by but by Australian standards, price was average. Would definitely return. Thank you for the photo!

“Food is fine but value poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

We recently ate dinner here on trip advisor ratings. The place is owned by an Australian guy and for some reason he charges Australian prices, not cool when were in bali and operating costs would be 1/10 of back home. That said the food was quite nice with the portions being on the small side. My fish was cooked perfectly though my partners was overlooked. Service was good no problems there. Main meal was slow to arrive. Overall I would not return as we have had better food in bali at much lower prices.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Our first visit to Meads was a much anticipated event as we had heard goods things from friends. We were not disappointed. Alfie and his staff gave a warm welcome and the service was great. The food was superb, starting with the home made pate to die for and garlic bread, followed by tender teaks cooked to perfection. The cocktails were a real highlight (pina coladas & strawberry margaritas), as they were the made with real alcohol, something that is rare in Bali.

I also took advantage of checking out the home stay accommodation and was so impressed that next year we have booked a 10 day stay. definitely go to Meads!
