Description: Purposely located off the beaten paths of nearby Oberoi and Kerobokan streets, SCRATCH is a new restaurant serving up "homecooked, like your momma did it, Sunday dinner, comfort food". SCRATCH is a needle in the haystack (or rice field in this case), located on a quiet street only five minutes away from Seminyak Square. SCRATCH is smoke-free and air conditioned with an outside patio for smoking and hanging out. It's got a relaxed atmosphere and hip decor, as the walls are lined with vibrant concert posters from bands like Cake, Arcade Fire and Neil Young, and more than likely you'll be hearing similar bands over the speakers. The menu is equally inviting, and can best be described as gourmet comfort food. But clearly the Canadian chef/owner (conveniently nicknamed Moose) won't settle for "mom's recipes", as it is obvious he enjoys putting a unique twist on most of his dishes. Signature steaks, rustic pastas, tapas, American classics, Asian favourites, and great specials during Happy Hour (8pm-10pm)...And you can wash it all down with a mango martini or a frosty mug of beer. So, if you've got an itch...Come and SCRATCH it!! NOTE: The map provided by Trip Advisor has us pinned in the wrong location. So, please call us for directions, or just jump in a taxi and tell them "Scratch restaurant, Jalan Pengubengan Kauh, next to Pengubengan Banjar". Thanks, and hope to see you here soon.

“Yes, they had a decent wine!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2015

It is difficult to find a restaurant with a decent wine for a reasonable price and they had one at scratch. Not Indonesian food but after a while you want something else and that is what you get at Scratch. Nice starter dishes to share and for the first time in two weeks I had a steak. Restaurant is not very big so in season you probably have to book.

“Well Worth Finding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015

Headed back here after a visit earlier this year. It may be a little off the beaten track but is worth the effort. (Much better than eating with the masses)
If you are after quality food prepared in an immaculate open kitchen setting then go to Scratch :)
All our courses were delicious flavorsome "twists" on classics.
Great food at very reasonable prices for the quality.
Not a pretentious setting, just a great place to eat fantastic food.
(Wine list is a little light on however you can byo your fav bottle if you wish)
Great service from staff and friendly owner who has taken the time to ensure his "chefs" get it right every time.
Looking forward to returning again

“Best Food in Bali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2015

My husband and I visit Scratch every time we're in Bali and while we're away, I actually crave it. We've tried pretty much everything on the menu but my go-to is the Singapore Street food. My husband usually gets the burger and loves the bacon jam. Everything we've tried is truly amazing and they also have great/ unique cocktails. It's a very "come as you are" atmosphere so it doesn't matter if you're dressed to impress or fresh off the beach. You never feel out of place. The owner and manager are always on site to make sure that everything is perfect and are both incredibly welcoming and will always remember your name. Do yourself a favor and check this place out
