Description: Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant has been a well loved and highly regarded restaurant in Cairns for many years, serving authentic Balinese cuisine. This multi award winning restaurant offers a true dining experience. Head Chef Made Upadana was trained in Bali at the highly regarded bumbu bali restaurant and cooking school and worked along side Heinz von Holzen the master chef and respected food writer of the Balinese Cuisine. Our signature banquet menu the Balinese Rijsttafel offers a feast of flavours and is highly recommended.

After hearing from many friends this restaraunt is superb we thought we'd try it out. The service is friendly but very efficient and all the staff were extremely knowledgable on all the menu choices. We had the 2 person banquet and it was superb, so delicious and more than enough food for two. The price per head was $43aud which was amazing value. We'll definately be back to try the other dishes...

The cuisine is Indonesian, have never been to Indo but it doesn't seem to be "westernised Asian food" - we wouldn't eat there if it didn't taste authentic. Everything on the menu is fantastic, being locals we eat here often and have never been disappointed over the years. Meals are very filling and hard to stop eating even when you're full. The citrus infused creme brulee is absolutely heavenly and refreshing - my fave !
Only a km or two out of the city centre, or catch a taxi and walk your meal off along the Esplenade, either way it's worth the small effort.

After a recommendation via a friend on Tripadvisor, we gave it a go. We went with the banquet and wine match. We couldn’t fault anything with the food, wine or service. Beautiful Balinese food that we struggled to get through. If your looking for something different from the usual, you must go here. Price was reasonable at $65 per head for the banquet with the wine. Best in Cairns.

We read the reviews on Tripadvisor, decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. Everything from the appetizer of corn cakes to the main vegetable dish that I ordered were loaded with amazing flavors. The restaurant is very pretty and the tiki torches are a nice touch outside. Service was excellent.

It's not quite on the esplanade (you have to cross the street and walk a little bit towards the main road) but it's worth the trip! Reservations are recommended but we were able to go early and get a table outside.
