We had the menu with the wine selection. Food and wine were excellent. We will come back when we are again in this area - we live in Europe :-)

The food was really good and the serving staff friendly, though they did't look Balinese. Best dish was the Sambal Udang (prawns braised in coconut milk). Lamb braised with cardamom was good but not as good as the prawns. Crocodile satay was good too. You get a real sense of Bali/Indonesia here with the semi-open seating so it's not a... More

I love this restaurant and it has become one of my favourites in Cairns. The food is always good and there is always plenty to go around. The value for money is great for the portion sizes. However lately I have found that the staff have a bit of an attitude problem. Upon my arrival I told the hostess that... More

We did not have a booking but were able to get a table on a Saturday night. Friends recommended Bayleaf and we were not disappointed. We picked the Balinese Banquet and were thoroughly impressed with everything that was served. There was way too much food for two people but it was all so nice. Great place for dinner

Nice decor and friendly staff, with an interesting menu. We were with another couple, and between us we sampled quite a few dishes. They were all delicious, richly spiced and fragrant. Service was friendly and helpful. Definitely a place to go for a nice evening out and something a bit different!

Delicious food, atmosphere, nice open kitchen to see food being prepared. We were going to get the banquet but were thankful the waitress checked how hungry we were and reccomended getting a few smaller dishes as there is quite alot of food in the banquet! Food was beautiful, very filling and rice is constantly served by your waitress.

Are you looking for something fun and unique to do? This restaurant not only gave great wholesome food but creates a dining experience. Platters of food come out from satay skewers with peanut sauce, selection of salads, rice, chicken curry, sweet pork, and an incredible fish. Next comes a dessert buffet right to your table. The coconut pancakes were amazing.... More

The food was reasonably good and I can't fault the service staff. However, the portion size was small for the price charged.
