Description: Balique is an original eatery found in the relaxed fishing village of Jimbaran, in stunning southern Bali, now home to outstanding world-class resorts and villas. This traditional seaside village and Balique suit each other harmoniously, as Balique pays homage to all the best of the Indonesian archipelago under its whirring fan-open style roof, in both the style and cuisine stakes. If you appreciate an authentic step into the past in stunning surroundings teemed with objets d’art, as well as a delicious menu, fabulous cocktails as well as an extensive affordable wine list – you have arrived home.And for sure, the warm décor along with the charming team of staff will make sure you completely feel at home here – welcome to the amazing world that is Balique and allow yourself to forget the fast, modern world outside, and be at peace in a bygone era of pure sensuality.

“Great setting”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The look of this place is just something special and original.

The menu is several steps up from the usual tourist places, and very tasty cocktails and pretty good food set it all together nicely. The service was a little slow, to put it mildly, but I still recommend Balique for a quality dinner.

“OMG the decor and food”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

My jaw hit the ground when we arrived, The décor was amazing. Then the staff... super friendly and helpful. And the food and drinks delicious. Wish I was having a destination wedding so I could have it here. Wish I found it on day one not on the last day. Will definitely be coming back here! Had 3 course meal, bowl of Sangria, and soft drinks and cost us under $70aud.... you could not do that in Australia.

“Excellent alternative to expensive and not so special hotel restaurants in Jimbaran”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Balique is very good restaurant and an excellent option to expensive and not so special restaurants in hotels like the Intercontinental. The decor is vintage, which makes the restaurant special and romantic. Food is also very good. Try Indonesian dishes or even continental options. The foiled red snapper is excellent. Deserts are also very good. I tried the Dame Blanche and it was delicious. Balique is very good option for a romantic night outside the Bali resorts.

“Went two nights in a row!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

I absolutely loved Balique. Service was wonderful, ambience is truly one of a kind and food was great. I ordered a traditional Indonesian meal both nights because when in rome...

It has that sort of 'eat, pray, love' ambience that some people search for when they travel to Bali. I took photos to try and imitate the decor at home.

Get the peanut sauce! If you're an Asian food connoisseur like myself, you appreciate a good peanut sauce. This is the best I've ever come across.... Amazing.

“Worth to visit”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Came here often with friends for lunch or dinner and i like the design of the restaurant which always bring a smile to my face.

The foods they served are good considering they are not from 5 stars hotels like many around it. I ate tuna tartare and by far the best i ever eat around the area and they are not to expensive. Rest assured if you drive a car you can stop right in front and ask one of the waiters to park it for you as they don't have visible parking spot,pitty!!

But if you seeking for a different and unique place even only for drinking coffee this place is worth to check .... It will blow your mind off !!!
