We read the reviews and thought this place would be great. While they have really good food none of the staff give you ANY time and repeatedly ignore you. We ventured there three times hoping things would change but never did we see a change in attitude.
Most of the staff prefer to stand behind the counter and look at you as if they wish you weren't there!
Won't be coming back but if staff attitudes changed and service improved would be a good place.

As usual my saturday afternoon is spent with a colleague surveying the Seminyak area for restaurants that may be of interest.
Grocer and Grind, a cute looking spot in the heart of Seminyak amidst private villas within walking distance to the Square, KuDeTa, and other hotspots in the area. It's a deli concept with a fancy grocery store. In the states, it is equivalent to Dean & de Lucca, Balducci's, almost Zabar's of NY, etc....It offers interesting food such as a mediterranean platter (tabbouleh, hummus, crusty Pita bread, olives, feta cheese, etc), I ordered the homemade beef burgundy pie.....but alas, at 4pm the platter had no hummus and tabbouleh (because they ran out?) and my Burgundy pie was also out of stock. Unfortunately we were informed of this long after we've ordered, and had to ask for replacement items a couple of times.
No Worries......I opted for the chicken pie instead.
The platter came and it was pretty mediocre, no tabbouleh or hummus, so the tatziki sauce (yogurt) was doubled and a side of aioli to dip the pita bread.
My chicken pie......the vol au vent, the puff pastry crust.....was rubbery, to say the least.
My friend's chicken salad came with really large leaves (almost uncut) and hard to eat. The sliced avocadoes were inedible, because they're unripe.
I think that should be enough review for me not to return.
Good concept, great looking place, decent service staff, but very poor execution.

Grocer and Grind was our favourite place to dine. We ate here 4 times on an 11 day trip. Very relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Very friendly staff. A lot of Aussies dine here. The food is very tasty and cheap. Try the pizzas..... freshly made base, good toppings, and only $5 each. We will return next time. Close to Seminyak Square shops.

G&G is a fabulour cafe located behind seminyak square (parking avail). It is open from 8am for breakfast until late.

The breakfast menu is sensational, a huge selection of breakfast dishes and juices. A large range of teas and coffee.

In the evening it offers family/couple specials (example 220,000 rupee 2 x roasted chickens or pizza, roasted potatoes and three salads to choose from), They also deliver for free which is an added bonus if you are staying in Seminyak.

This is not the place for an intimate or special dinner - it is however fantastic for a quick meal on the go.

PS menu accomodates vegetairans, glutten intolerent ect.
