Poppies is our favourite place to eat in Bali.
All the food is delicious. The staff are very very friendly.
The setting is very nice and quiet.
Every time we visit Bali we eat at Poppies at least 2 or 3 times if not more.

Excellent meals in lovely garden setting, Poppies Lane 1. No bookings required for our lunchtime visit (not like ten years ago when this place was booming). Still a winner.

Have meant to come to Poppies on several trips to Bali, now regretting I haven't before. It really is a little oasis in the hustle and bustle that is Kuta. Quiet, romantic restaurant with a menu with good variety. Wish my boyfriend had arrived a few days before as it would be perfect place for a romantic dinner by candlelight at one of the table on the edge near the garden.

Really enjoyed my meal, although the servings were not very big (but this is typical of Bali). Was particularly happy with the Special for the day, Babi Guling—delicious crunchy skin of the pork was complimented by slightly spicy vegetable accompanying it.

Service was good, even with several large groups. It's quite pricey for Bali but cheap when you compare to what you'd get at home and the lovely ambience makes it worth it.

A friend introduced us to Poppies, we loved it so much we went back a second time.

We had the Rice Plate for 3 which is a tasting plate of about 10 dishes plus 3 types of satay and 2 rice dishes, it was great, each dish was very nice, the squid curry just melted in the mouth. There was so much food we could not finish it and also a dessert went with it but we didnt sample.

I also had one of there award winning Pina Coladas served in a carved coconut and it was very good.

The atmosphere is very nice there are outdoor tables as well as tables under cover, also fans, the gardens are lush and the staff very friendly. The first time we went the wait was a little long for the food but all in all a nice experience.

I first ate at Poppies in 1980 so was eager to take my wife and daughter there to enjoy a true Balinese eating experience, the atmosphere, decor and food were impecable.
Make sure you order the dish that gives you a taste of all the different Balibese delights, for the 3 of us it was $30 and we couldn't get through it all.
We went back again on returning to Kuta before flying out.
Bali has changed enormously over the last 32 years, for the worse...............but Poppies has gotten better.
