Description: The MEJA experience starts the moment you turn onto fashionable Oberoi street in the Seminyak district of south Bali. Just look for the blue on the left. Because set like a glowing opal among the other glittering boutiques and restos is the New Meja Kitchen & Bar. With a striking, modern façade of louvered steel, one look at this two tiered venue and you know you are going to have a great dining experience. Even the understated neon sign is cool. Mixing a modern menu with traditional respect, with plenty of parking out back, you don’t just enter this restaurant, you glide into it. The food is out of this world, ranging from such exotica as an almond crusted Mahi cooked with a chive butter mash to a Coffee rubbed cheese burger that is worth a drive from Jakarta. Once inside you will immediately feel at home. Upstairs is being developed as a chic bar and lounge, that offers a bird’s eye view of all the action of Oberoi street. A great place to watch the dusk fall upon the nightlife of the street. All in all, Meja is an affordable one stop shop for a dynamite dinner and an upstairs lounge experience. A great place to kick-start any adventurous evening in Bali, Meja is set to become a destination restaurant for any lovers of great food and even better memories.

“Banana pancakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

These are fabulous - something I usually don't eat for breakfast but they were light and fluffy with nice banana, crumbled pistachios and marscapone cheese. Yum! It was fabulous.

We all glad that you enjoyed our food.
Our concept is quiet simple providing ,comfort and healthy choices.We also provide different kind of set menu for breakfast with very reasonable price.We are not serving cheap food but the best value for money.
Fresh baked bread,fresh fruit and ..I love the bircher muesli yet the Banana Pancake with pistachio and mascarpone cheese is yummii.

Also please spare your time at Meja for Lunch and Dinner cause we have many option to be explored and differently set by our chef with the neighbors.
Definitely need to try our Kaffir Lime Chicken Risotto and Our best Beef Rendang ( Indonesian best Food .
Don't forget we have the best mojito on the Island with unthinkable flavor combination.

“The perfect mojito and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Four of us visited Meja for dinner last week and after eating out for 10 days in Bali it was my best food experience. Everything from the garlic prawns, calamari, pumpkin salad and corn with jalapeño butter was divine. Their range of mojitos are the best I've seen and come in generous jam jar style glasses. The staff were also pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Worked out with starters, mains, four sides and three mojitos each to be $35 per person. Unbelievable value for a very upmarket restaurant/bar.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We enjoyed a fantastic meal here along with 2 for 1 Mojito's, the staff here are friendly & knowledgable about the menu. We enjoyed the Chicken & Lime Risotto & the Crab & Chive Mahi Mahi (white fillets of fish) both were deliscous with great subtle flavours. We also enjoyed the chocolate brownie & meringue both very nice. There is music in the background which is nice you can still hold a conversation. Although smoking is allowed on the terrace as non smokers we were not too concerned as the space is so open it was not an issue unlike other places. We will definitely come again on our next visit to Bali
