Description: Purposely located off the beaten paths of nearby Oberoi and Kerobokan streets, SCRATCH is a new restaurant serving up "homecooked, like your momma did it, Sunday dinner, comfort food". SCRATCH is a needle in the haystack (or rice field in this case), located on a quiet street only five minutes away from Seminyak Square. SCRATCH is smoke-free and air conditioned with an outside patio for smoking and hanging out. It's got a relaxed atmosphere and hip decor, as the walls are lined with vibrant concert posters from bands like Cake, Arcade Fire and Neil Young, and more than likely you'll be hearing similar bands over the speakers. The menu is equally inviting, and can best be described as gourmet comfort food. But clearly the Canadian chef/owner (conveniently nicknamed Moose) won't settle for "mom's recipes", as it is obvious he enjoys putting a unique twist on most of his dishes. Signature steaks, rustic pastas, tapas, American classics, Asian favourites, and great specials during Happy Hour (8pm-10pm)...And you can wash it all down with a mango martini or a frosty mug of beer. So, if you've got an itch...Come and SCRATCH it!! NOTE: The map provided by Trip Advisor has us pinned in the wrong location. So, please call us for directions, or just jump in a taxi and tell them "Scratch restaurant, Jalan Pengubengan Kauh, next to Pengubengan Banjar". Thanks, and hope to see you here soon.

What a diamond in the rough! If you go to Bali then this is a must place to eat,.It may be a little out of the way but a $4 taxi ride from Seminyak is easily worth the trouble as the food is by far the best we ate while we were in Bali.We went to a few "top restaurants" in Bali and they did not come close to Scratch.

The owner Aaron and his team went out of the way to make sure our dinning experience was special. I truly see this place as the next big thing in Bali and you all deserve the credit!

Only bad point was we didn't get to eat there more often as you were our last place in 6 days.

Thank you for making our food experience in Bali the BEST.

My husband and I have visited Scratch several times since moving to Bali from the USA. It's definitely one of our favorite spots. Everything we've tried was delicious - Mediterranean salad, Steak, Quesadillas, pasta, Bruschetta for appetizer -- all perfect. The staff and service is also wonderful....they always help entertain our 1 year old so we can have a nice, peaceful meal. Oh for dessert you must try the Toronto....unbelievably delicious. Drinks are also VERY good as well. You can expect to spend about 500,000 on a full meal including appetizers, drinks and dessert...not bad considering how amazing the food is.

Had visited Scratch last year in its previous location and was even more impressed with this visit.
Definitely worth the $2 or $3 cab ride ride from Seminyak.
Owner recommended the Salmon which is something I wouldn't normally order - but I'm glad I did it was great. Great starters and deserts also - all in all a terrific meal at a really nice location with excellent service - couldn't ask for much more really.

Great menu, unpretentious excellence. Best steak on the island, best burger on the island as said the 12 year olds at the table, dessert also fabulous even though we had no room.. the Philly a la Scratch 'luar biasa'... definitely have to go back to taste the rest of the menu. Everything made from Scratch - now that is luar biasa :)
