We are in Bali at the moment and have been to The Smiling Frog twice so far. It is a 2 story Balinese style restaurant. The food is really good and the prices are very reasonable. We had 2 mains, a cocktail, a large beer and 2 pots of tea, as well as shared a dessert for 250000rp ($24). On arrival you get a small welcome drink and a plate of welcome bread. The food arrived quickly and it is delicious. The servings are a good size too. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We will definitely go back!

We went to this restaurant expecting good things after reading the reviews and we were disappointed. I would hardly call it a restaurant, more of a Cafe, not many tables. No air con, open to the street. The service was average, food was average, and we got eaten alive by Mosquitos. It was alright but we wouldn't go back.

You can read my previous review about the smiling frog. THEN ITWAS Very nice and pleasant experience... I was very disappointed when trip advisor took down my last review when the place turned into very expensive and empty restaurant. Apparently due to refurbishment I could not have been to that restaurant. GOOD news. Last week I visited Bali again and found out that the original restaurant has changed its name and the advertised prices were not as bad as the time before. I did not try the service again as there was not a soul inside. HOWEVER I have just been told that the smiling frog restaurant has actually moved around 200 meters away... So I will stay away from the new establishment which replaced the original smiling frog and can not wait to try the new venue of the original and real smiling frog.
