I have been here many times over the years, and Bayleaf never disappoints. The food is always excellent and the decor is very fitting, Only locals tend to know about this little gem of a restaurant, but the fact that It is often hard to get a table attests to it's popularity. Definitely recommended.

The first night they were fully booked out, but it looked and smelt so great that we came back the next night (with a booking for 7 people). The food was fantastic although the main portions were a little on the small side - we chose to share 5 mains between 7 of us, but could easily have had a... More

I have had Takeaway from this restaurant on many occasions as I work close by. The food isn't cheap and the portion sizes aren't large, However, the quality is superb and well worth the price as a "treat" takeaway that is yummier than most.

Just loved the Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant. We were staying at the Bay Village Tropical Retreat and the restaurant in situated in the complex. The food is very nice and not over priced. It is a very popular place to eat for travellers and the locals of Cairns, so make a booking.

This is a wonderful place to take your family or visit for a romantic night out. They cater for those who are not able to tolerate really spicy food. There is plenty of variety in the menu and cocktails and mocktails that are to die for. We will definitely go again to try some more delightful morsels.
