“Great staff, and cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Great staff (as we came to expect everywhere in Bali) and good atmosphere, and the more traditional foods we got where awesome. They where not the best at western food tho. But cheap as chips so cant really complain on that behalf.
Overall great for some lunch or a quick snack. If you want more of a meal and experience for dinner etc, i recommend trying Nirvana Cafe across the road.

“The perfect place to start your love affair with Bali.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Café Bali was our first foray outside our resort. It had been recommended to us by people we met poolside. And it was the perfect place to start our love affair with Bali.

The charm of the colonial French/Dutch style architecture and furnishings were hard to deny. The extensive Asia-meets-Europe menu gave us the opportunity to enjoy nasi goreng and gelato.

We arrived before the 7.30pm dinner rush which meant we got seated in a prime spot on the verandah overlooking the hustle and bustle of Jalan Oberoi. We enjoyed our Bintang with people watching - a great way for first-timers to Bali to get their bearings.

The service was very quick and efficient and the food casual but delicious.
Don't miss this one.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

I come here every trip & get a taxi from Kuta as I love it. Delicious food!!! Great garlic prawns, satay & everything else I have tried. Awesome frozen strawberry daiquiri's....best I have found in Bali so far after 14 trips! Crime brûlée is delicious too. Lovely ambience & friendly staff, a little on the slow side in regards to getting drinks orders taken but that's a minor fault.

“Loved Cafe Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

My husband and I and 3 other friends went to Cafe Bali early one evening after a very disappointing visit to Potato Head and we had a great time there. The staff were very welcoming and we loved the actual building - sort of Frenchy or shabby chic style. The food was fantastic value for money and very delicious too. We all had 2 courses each and a few drinks and were very pleased with the great prices. I had beautiful snapper with vegetables and lemon, lime tart - both lovely. My husband had dumpling soup and satay and he was in heaven. Altogether it was a beautiful evening which we all enjoyed. My husband and I went back again for our last night in Bali and enjoyed it all over again...

“A Big Hit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Bali Café was a pleasant surprise for us, the décor has a touch of Indonesian history with the Dutch Colonial feel, this is really well done and adds to the general ambience. The service was excellent, fast and efficient at all times and the varied menu provided ample choice for our large group from sushi, Vietnamese spring rolls, pumpkin soup, nasi goring to beef goulash! The place is very busy but you can always have a drink at the bar while waiting for a table.
