Meja is located on the famous "eat street" also known as Jalan Laksamana in Seminyak. Sitting on the front terrace & you are privy to watching the busy street unfold. The shabby chic interior is cool & comfortable. The menu covers every possible genre of food. The salads are truly exquisite - quinoa & pumpkin is a particular favourite of ours, followed by the hash potato & roquet. They also offer 'buy one get one free' mojitos with dinner - the choice of flavours are too much to decide - our favourite was the vanilla & passionfruit! Wait staff are delightful.

Dear Donna S


Warm greetings from Meja team.
Thank you in a million way for your visit and your excellent review on TripAdvisor.
All the team are very happy to understand that you were enjoying our food and drinks especially the salad.

Roasted pumpkin quinoa salad is our highlight and its putting a lot of protein and creatively combined by our chef. We can say fresh,light and healthy.
That is our idea creating fresh and healthy food.

We also have Caesar salad designed creatively by the chef made of half crispy lettuce with melted poached eggs,crispy cheese and served with blue cheese Caesar dressing.Need to try this one.

For drink we can say our mojito are the best one on the island with creative flavor combination.
But one think.....you need to be at Meja at last everyday one week to try all the mojito flavors we got ...but if you do in one day mean you will forget the way home..

Again we do appreciate your support for Meja and we look forward having you back to be a part of Meja experience.

Kind regards

Meja kitche & bar management.

I went here for their famous mojitos. So I tried on of it, the Cacao Caramel Mojito. The mojito itself is good, a medium kick of alcohol at friday afternoon. I also got the chance to try caesar salad. Which is good too! A recommended place to hang out in the afternoon.

Sunny greetings from Meja team.
We are very happy acknowledge that you were having good experience with us.Also thank you for your excellent review on TripAdvisor.
We can say that we provide quiet large mojito selection with creatively design by our bar manager Erik who has been working quiet while with 5 star restaurant in Bali.

Definitely you need to stay longer to experience all the flavors .

When we hear Caesar salad for sure everybody understand that .But Meja create it differently with others with melted poached eggs, and crispy cheese, so good at lunch time yet it fresh.

We had a look at the reviews and decided to try,we arrived 7.30 and seated straight away,the service was excellent,the menu looked good and everybody enjoyed what they had,I think the winner on the night was the risotto,the mojitos were excellent and with the happy hour on to 9pm it was a bonus,price wise slightly dearer than your run of the mill restaurant but still reasonable,overall one of the best nights on our holiday,could not fault.

Dear AllanhFife


Warm Greetings from Meja team.
Thank you in a million ways for sparing your time to visit Meja and also for the time to write down a good review on TripAdvisor.
We all glad to acknowledge that you were having a good time with us.

Our kitchen brigades are very happy that you were enjoyed the food especially Chicken Risotto.
The Chicken Risotto is the high light and also you need to try or Balinese Style Pork Ribs next time.
Its so good ,the recipe brought from village by our talented local chef Made Darsana who always cook at his village during special ceremony.Selected pork ribs marinated with secret Balinese bumbu and braise for quiet while and than grilled.Will be served with Balinese vegetable called Jukut Urab and also steam rice...yummi.
What we offer at Meja is the best value for money.

As the tropical island the Mojito will be the best option for day time and dinner time too.Yet the combination flavors are unthinkable and absolutely amazing. the Strawberry & Rosemary Mojito is the winner.

Again thank you very much for you visit and we look forward having you back at Meja .

Kind regards,


Meja kitchen & bar management.
