Balique is an original eatery found in the relaxed fishing village of Jimbaran, in stunning southern Bali, now home to outstanding world-class resorts and villas.
This traditional seaside village and Balique suit each other harmoniously, as Balique pays homage to all the best of the Indonesian archipelago under its whirring fan-open style roof, in both the style and cuisine stakes.
If you appreciate an authentic step into the past in stunning surroundings teemed with objets d’art, as well as a delicious menu, fabulous cocktails as well as an extensive affordable wine list – you have arrived home.
And for sure, the warm décor along with the charming team of staff will make sure you completely feel at home here – welcome to the amazing world that is Balique and allow yourself to forget the fast, modern world outside, and be at peace in a bygone era of pure sensuality.
Lit by a multitude of lamps by interior designers, partners and owners Zohra and Blaise’s trademark style of shades, the stage is set for this amazing venue. This Belgian couple’s knack and passion for finding antiques and curios from all over the archipelago, primarily began for their interior clientele and has Baliqueshowcasingthe best of their personal collection – and what an amazing collection it is to behold.

The delightfully charming waiters and waitress also speak several languages, and have the knack of serving down to a fine art. Balique’s team is a family ready to welcome all guests into the Balique home.

Our cuisine, drinks list, ambience and service will ensure that you and your guests will have the magic of Bali to remember Balique by on your special occasion.
There are some imported meats and ingredients also, which have been delicately sourced to maintain a sustainable thoughtfulness.
Balique is delighted and proud to offer you and your guests the following menus, not forgetting the younger members of the family also, who are more than welcome.
The place is a-scatter with the more classic table and chair settings, or oversized sofas full of plump cushions – which are perfect during High Tea time or informal meetings when a beverage is all that is required. It is interesting to point out that Balique is not air-conditioned but perfectly cooled by a gentlesea breeze. Across the salon from the working open kitchen is the glamorous bar, complete with a heavybaroque style chandelier and bar stock to make even Bacchus blush. From the cooling hand baked tiles underfoot, up to the beautiful skeleton of the rafters alive with whirring fans the philosophy is traditional, uncomplicated and hospitable butdistinct and creative. Food and drinks are fresh, healthy and fun with a taste of Asia and beyond.
Discreetly situated but roadside on the very busy Eat Street of the Seminyak area this restaurant and bar has been conceptualized and lovingly put together by the formidable team of Zohra and Blaise.
An impressive wooden air-conditioned yet high ceilinged open space, upon entering you immediately feel welcomed and reminded of a New York loft/factory space with a distinct industrial feel. However, the interior furnishings pay homage to many antiques and artifacts sourced from around the Indonesian archipelago, most being from the couple's personal collection.
The upstairs bar provides a space that Hemingway would be proud of. Balique is original, fun, delicious and very 'fairytale' adult. A must do this high season.
