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.

I have just had the BEST dining experience I have had, in a long time, at this restaurant. It was by sheer luck, and my sheer fruststion with the parking man at the restaurant down the road, that brought us to Scratch and I have to say that we arent disappointed



CANADIAN PIE - excellent

topped off with a dessert called TORONTO...want to know what it is you will have to come and try it

We are looking forward to returning to eat oir way through this delightful

To Aaron, and the team at Scratch, keep up yhe good work

“Balis hidden gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Wow! This is place that you must try if you're in Bali. Location is of the beaten path, but if you managed to make your way here the reward is well worth the trip.

Up on arrival Im always greeted by their very friendly and attentive staff. Better service is hard to find in Bali to be honest..

Also the food is in a category for itself. It is clear that the chef and owner is takes pride in his work.

Price and portion size is very reasonable, and another reason why this is a place that I am more then happy o return to.

Please do yourself a huge favor, and stop by and see for yourself.

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

I was ecstatic to find a place as good as scratch so close to my house! Great comfortable restaurant with very good food. So far I have had the burger, the Philly cheese poutine, the steak pasta, and the Mint lemonade! Good wifi as well. Highly recommended.

“One of the best breakfast in Bali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

Awesome breakfast menu - I went for the UK breakfast. Their bacon is crispy and sautéed with mushrooms, the beans are home made using their own BBQ sauce. It's a great meal.

Best part is we made our reservations through their facebook page and we had their address, everything sent to us

“Great Western comforts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Went on last night in Bali, hard to find spot but worth the effort to get away from the hordes of tourists. So good I've decided to right my 1st trip advisor review on it!

Service was great, we met with owner who was very passionate about his food and it shows. I had a delicious seafood grill and my wife had a mix of philly steak sandwich and Canadian pointine dish which tasted great too.

Shame we only discovered scratch o n our last night!
