If you're looking for a 'chill-out' place with cosy nooks, 'bed' seats for 2 & a beautiful ourdoor ambience, then Blue Bali is the place. It's a hidden gem on the other side of the Botanical gardens, & it's a rare find in Singapore. It has many different types of seating & an alfresco section - just great for a... More

Dear Donna, Thank you very much for your enthusiastic review of Blue Bali. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and had the chance to experience the feeling of Bali, right here in Singapore.

Beautiful location just on the edge of the Botanic Gardens. A lovely layout for the restaurant, you feel like you are somewhere really exotic. Their own brewed beers are really good (or so my husband tells me). My husband loves their beef rending, and I love their mongolian chicken.

A nice atmosphere as if you were in Bali. But the service is not very efficient and really slow. And the food didn't meet my expectations....maybe I did the wrong choice. It remains a place to try for a dinner especially.

We love to come here with friends and family who are visiting Singapore and don't have the time to go to Bali. They can feel as if they were in Bali.

Quite an amazing atmosphere to dine in those suroudings. Bushes, jungle, waterfalls, frogs it's allmost surreal, at least at night. Food is very good, wine list is rather small but sufficient. The only drawback is the service which is really slow. A part from this you will dine in a great nature environment and you could indeed feel yourself in... More

Excellent food, and charming and authentic surroundings. Not easy to get there without a car/taxi. A bit expensive. Good service.

The location in the Botanic Gardens is excellent, giving you the opportunity to reach it on foot in a beautiful environment. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very cosy an the service is good. The platter are of good quality and an interesting option for 3-4 people group.

Came here to celebrate a special day with my fiancée. I booked the Lesehan, advertised as "Romantic Balinese Lesehan where you have total privacy in the Balinese garden, sitting on cushions and enjoying your company in paradise".

Description
A Balinese restaurant bar situated on the edge of Singapore's iconic World Heritage Botanic Gardens. Dining is in a cluster of Javanese Joglos (pavilions) and Lesehans (traditional) Balinese seating sitting on the floor with cushions. Other seating available, daybeds, low chairs and standard dining tables and chairs. The garden is very lush and adorned with Balinese carvings and statues. Ideal location for romantic dinners, groups of friends business dinners, meetings, corporate events and seminars (we have indoor seminar rooms) and weddings. The atmosphere is casual yet smart depending on the occasion. The natural environment coupled with the Balinese culture gives one the impression you are really in Bali, the Island of the Gods.
