This is one of the best places to go if you are looking for a quiet, clean and romantic environment. Or even a group get together Thr food is amazing, the staff wonderful, the ambiance the best. Enclosed within high walls, surrounded by luscious gardens...and quaint waterfalls this restaurant will delight. Went there for dinner and straight back next day for lunch. Highly recommend as a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle.More

Staff were very welcoming, we had the Christmas set meal as it sounded very nice. It was ok. Extremely spicy and I like spicy and this was too hot for me. Overall I thought it was quite expensive as it was one plate with small...servings of a few things, I misunderstood the advertising obviously.More

Poppies Restaurant is as good as ever! The food is delicious and the service outstanding. If you want an Authentic Bali experience you must come to poppies for the Famous Poppies cocktails.

This was one of my favourite places pre covid. Could always guarantee excellent satay sticks and friendly service. This visit was a mixed experience. While I was happy to see that Poppies was still open the food was not the same. Ordered satay sticks and...club sandwich. The satay grill was out almost as soon as it hit the table so the sticks did not achieve that charred goodness. Club sandwich was not the same as I have had many a time while sitting around poppies pool. As soon as the staff cleared those plates we were given the cold towels and not encouraged to order dessert or another drink.More

After a covid-induced break we were looking forward to our return visit to this iconic venue. We were pleasantly surprised that everything seemed as usual, despite disclaimers on the menu of their operations not being quite up to speed. Our favourite items were there &...were delicious! It’s great to be back 😊More

I’ve been going to poppies over 40 years. The green chicken curry was presented to me full of eggplant and juice with the tiniest amount of chicken. It was sent back to the kitchen where more chicken was added but I should not have to...ask for that. I was told there was 100 gm of chicken initially which I doubt but even that seems mingy. The setting is as lovely as ever.More

As allways we go for the ricetable. Last time was three years ago, but it was as good as we remember. Maybe there was less variety in taste, but there was as much variety in side dishes. They offered us a change from the Indonesian...dessert, which is heavy, into ice cream or fruit. Staff was friendly, but a bit quick with everything. Maybe because it was early: about 4.30 pm and we were the only guests…..More

We visited here because it was reccomend by our travel agent back in the uk, after a week in bali this was our worst experience yet!! I dont write reviews unless they are particularly bad or particularly good. In this case.....awful. first off noone greeted...us, then the very rude staff just pointed at a table. Terrible service from start to finish. Had the watery tomato soup to start and the raw kebab for main. Shame as im guessing this place used to be something to reccomend. Do yourselves a favour and skip this resteraunt. We had made a special trip just to come here, paid 250k on a car from the hotel. Left absolutely furious with the way we were treated, the poor food and dated resteraunt.More

For some reason the original May 2022 review was lost. We returned to Bali in May 22 as soon as travel restrictions allowed Australians to leave their own country. Poppies restaurant was one of the few businesses that survived the 2.5 yrs of shut down....The restaurant was as good as ever, I always make a booking at least once every trip. The menu was basically the same but slightly reduced in options. The garden was as beautiful as ever and the staff were all at their usual high standards. It was nice to know that Poppies had tried to keep all of their employees during the 2 years. The food was still excellent and prices had not increased in real terms, excellent food, excellent service all at very reasonable prices. We enjoyed a couple of the traditional Poppies cocktails along with a couple of really cold Bintangs. We are returning to Bali in October and will be celebrating our wedding anniversary at Poppies. Cannot fault the place ever. I have visited Poppies at least 25 times since I first discovered this hidden gem in 2010.More

The entrees were very nice, old school avocado with prawns, and young papaya prawn salad.The mains were a little lacklustre...seafood skewers were not tasty, not hot. The prawn ceasar salad was not terribly tasty either....Great venue let down by the main courses.More
