“Good Indonesian food, slow service”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Good Indonesian food, delicious mezze and tapas :). The atmosphere nice,but very long service. We waited 45 mins for fried rice & sauted chicken. When we entered the restaurant no one greeted us for 5mins. Servers are really nice but it just takes too long to eat there.

“My Rehearsal Dinner Location”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I couldn't rave more about this place. I recently got married in Bali and had 64 attendees, whom of which I invited to my rehearsal dinner in this most amazing location. Sandra was the dream manager who helped me out with just about everything to make this a night to remember. I couldn't have chosen a better menu, which included everything from lobster bisque, chicken sate, shrimp, filet, and a huge favorite coconut panacotta. Everybody was impressed and full by the the time the speeches and slideshow began. The staff was very helpful and we just loved their overalls that they wore. The decor was more than impressive and I can't wait to get our photos back from the professional photographer. When I return to Bali from America, I will definitely make this place a MUST REVISIT on my list. Thank you Balique for all of your efforts to making this one of my dream nights!!! I recommend this place to just about everybody who wants great food, service, quality, ambience, and a special place to remember.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

This is an unpretentious restaurant that has some good food at reasonable prices. It is not your stuffy fine dining, kind of place but the food is pretty good and the place has a friendly vibe. I liked the hundreds of fans on the high roof and the nice light fittings. When you look around you realize that so much of the decor has been chosen with care and a decorators eye. I ate there three times and on one occasion I thought the service was way too slow, but perhaps I need to slow down more myself and get into holiday mode a bit more quickly. I can say they did the best mie goreng with satay chicken I have had anywhere in Bali.

“Our best meal in Bali”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Went to Balique twice when in Bali and loved it. Its a charming place close to the Intercontinental which serves both Balinese and Western food. The place has an unhurried feel to it, inline with its location in a relatively quiet part of Bali. The seating is comfortable and the management encourages you to lounge around for as long as you like.

Would definitely recommend it if you plan to stay around Jimbaran.

Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

i have been to balique twice and loved it there. the roomdecor/furniture is special,pretty and chosen with love. the atmosphere is beautiful, cozy and relaxing. but most important for a restaurant is the food, i know. my veggie plate was excellent and my boyfriends filet mignon just as good. for me one of the best restaurants in south bali. p.s. you should check the ladies restroom :)!
