“Fun, family evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We went there after reviewing on TA. My husband, myself and two grown up children had had a looooongggg journey to get there from Jimbaran Bay due to roadworks. The lady owner had saved us a great table near to the stage but away to be able to speak. The performers were great fun, my only complaint was they were all miming.... had so hoped to hear them sing live as am sure they had great voices too. They were energetic and lively and great fun. I had asked if there was a fee to pay during the performances and was told "No" but there was a different drinks price menu when the show was on which put the prices up quite a bit. The service was a bit enthusiastic and I had to hang onto my drink a couple of times as hadn't quite finished them! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Hi DenKips,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review for BBS! The night is very entertaining and that is our objective to give everyone a fun night! A lot of work does go into the production of these shows, and I commend our entertainers for their commitment to BBS in providing fresh shows 5 nights per week!

Regarding live singing, it is very rare to find a Drag performer who can sing not only in Bali but other countries who produce these types of shows! Part of the appeal and entertainment is their ability to impersonate the artists e.g: Pink! The shows are not advertised as live vocal performances! I agree that it would be great to see a live vocal, however, this not part of the format or the entertainers available to sing!

Yes, we do not have a cover charge and will continue not to as we still want to keep our shows in line with Bali prices! The drink prices do increase, however, not all of them and minimal! The increase is between Rp. 5,000 and Rp. 10,000! The slight increase is to pay for the entertainers salary! I still believe we provide a very affordable night of entertainment!

At BBS, service is a number one priority, so if our staff over serviced you, I will take responsibility for that! I rather over service than our customer's trying to get our staff's attention for a drink!

Once again, thank you for your review, which gave me the opportunity to address your concerns / questions regarding the operations of BBS. I am also glad that you enjoyed your evening, that is what we hope to do for all of our guests.

“Bali Beach Shack, WHAT a FIND!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

My sister and I were wishing for one of mum's roast dinners back home in Australia.

A friend had been talking about going to see a lady boy show. We had no idea what great value for money the Bali Beach Shack would be until we arrived.

Our large group of family and friends went together. We ate an amazing smorgasbord roast whilst drinking, chatting, laughing and singing along to the DJ's excellent music choices.

And then........the lady boy show. How entertaining was that. Such diversity and great entertainment through interaction with the audience. Thanks to my mates who set me up for a 50th surprise up on stage with Jeff and the Lady Boys helping to celebrate my 50th birthday.

Nothing was too much trouble for Robyn, Jeff and the staff. What a MEMORABLE evening. THANKS sooooo much xxxx Mary

Hi Ballybum,

Thank you so much for writing a review for BBS! I must say we love doing birthdays at BBS, what a great way to celebrate being in Bali! Always a lot of fun getting birthday guests up on stage, we do this to our staff also lol!

I have mentioned before, that even though we have been operating for more than 5 years, our guests are our number one priority! We love seeing the enjoyment on everyone faces, and giving everyone a positive experience in Bali!

Thanks again! :)

“MUST GO!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Aussie owned, Bali Beach Shack is one of my favourite places to go in Bali.
Have been to Bali 5 times now, and have enjoyed the show and dinner three times.

This week we went on a Sunday for the Aussie Roast.
I got in touch with Robby through her email which I got off the website, she called me straight away regarding my booking for 25 people.
We all enjoyed the amazing range of home cooked veggies and imported Aussie meat.
And the drag show, you have not lived until you've seen it.

Amazing food, roast and menu, very cheap, fantastic customer service and wait staff.

10/10

Can't wait to come back!

Hi Stakacs90

Thank you so much for such a lovely review! Even after being business for more than 5 years here in Bali, it is still very important for all the staff at BBS to provide the best service and entertainment possible. We do not get it right all of the time, however, that is our main objective!

Our roast dinner, I agree is fantastic and of the past weeks I have missed out lol since we have introduced one drag show on the night we have been full every week!

Many of our entertainers have been at BBS for years, and the improvement and dedication continues! They are true performers and really enjoy giving our guest a fantastic night!

Thanks again, and I do hope you come back and visit us again!
