Balique decor is so pretty and the atmosphere is amazing... If you love antiquity furniture you will enjoy the look and feel of this place. My mother, sister & I enjoyed this place thoroughly. Fantastic food, things to admire everywhere you looked and service was excellent. Highly recommended.

“Nice place in great location”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

We went here last Sunday night for a dessert and dessert. It was almost 9pm and the restaurant was busy. It has an interesting menu with combination of western/european and local food. The decor and atmosphere was nice. However we were a bit disappointed with the staff/service. They looked running everywhere in hurry and did not put any attention to detail. The food which was only 2 dessert ( lemon tart & pumpkin cheesecake ) took some times to be served. And when it came out there's no spoon on the table so we waited couple minutes for it. We ordered another 2 cups of ice cream and it all happened again. My husband even had to ask for our order in case they forgot it. The manager finally informed us that they didn't have enough staffs. I'd like to give it a try again next time and hopefully it will be better service.

“Wowww !”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

I'm impressing and so respectful about the person who create this restaurant coz this restaurant is so nice decorate you are normally disappointed about the food.
But no for this time !! Nice different touch from Middle East / France / Asia all what I love (I'm French/Marocain living in Bali :)

For sure I will be back even if it's little bit far from my villa but Anne-Claire the Balique Manager smile's is so welcoming !


Thanks again for the good experience yesterday.

Cheers

“Beautiful setting, great food”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This restaurant is a gem. Walking in, it feels like you're entering the parlour of a French country house. It is gorgeously lit with a multitude of lamps, spaciously laid out. Courteous and fast service. The food is unfussy and high quality, with a good mix of Asian and Western dishes. Highly recommended.

Tip: don't sit too near the kitchen - way too warm!

“Cool looking place with a wide selection of food options”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Happened to chance upon this place while walking in Jimbaran. Glad we walked in and gave it a go. The staff we're we're welcoming and service was excellent. Loved the decor and they had local as well as western items to choose from. Had two entrees and mains as well as drinks and felt the food was reasonably priced and definitely worth it as it was tasty and authentic. Would rate it over the noisy and smoky seafood places on Jimbaran Beach.
