Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Never having tasted Balinese food, we can’t compare to anything, but the meal we had was delicious. We ordered the mini banquet which included satay sticks for entree, 3 main dishes, and 3 desserts. We loved every dish, and not much was left on our...plates. The service was excellent, the staff were friendly, and I would recommend this restaurant. If we get the chance to visit Cairns again, we will be back.More

Another Lovely Meal at Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant. We started with mixed Sate as an Entree and then shared Pork Ribs and Marinated Fish wrapped in Banana Leaf, all dishes were lovely. Service was great We finished off the meal with Pisang Goreng and Coconut Ice...Cream, so good. If I could offer a small suggestion would love to have heard the background music a little louder as you could barely hear it , almost transports you back to Bali. Thank you BayleafMore

Reasonable food but disappointed overall. Menu reads well but the meat on the satay sticks was quite grisly and the flavours were mediocre. There are better options around Cairns.

We were so looking forward to experiencing this restaurant but after waiting 40 mins for the wine we ordered & then an hour and a half for food we felt let down. The prices are high but the level of service is very low. Won’t...be back again.More

This Balinese restaurant is part of the Bay Village Tropical Resort Hotel. In the morning these spaces serve for the breakfast buffet. But in the evening, it is one of the best places to eat out. Even though it is located in a rather residential...area, it is very well known for it's quality food, and it can be very crowded. So reservations are a must. That might have something to do with the fact that it is located just across the street from the Cairns hospital, and several office buildings. We were under the impression that a number of guests were there because of a congress or business visit. Anyway, if in Cairns you should definitely try it out. We ate here on two occasions, and we were never disappointed.More

We followed the advices most of them so good and were quite disappointed. Though service is excellent, meal was average. Fish was over cooked while prawns were almost raw. Served in a very good coconut sauce but lukewarm. Same problem with the rice that was...not hot. Too bad ....More
