Baliku Cafe opened in 1 October 2007 in Kedonganan Beach – Jimbaran Bay. It began as three permanent outdoor tables sheltered under umbrella style roofing made from coconut palms. The cooking area (two halved steel drums filled with coconut husks) stood opposite the reception area, a room whose walls were constructed from woven palm leaves.
A lone western toilet stood facing a white sandy beach over which the sun would fall each evening bidding farewell with an amazing sunset. An indication that in time, Baliku Cafe would grow to offer guests an incredible dining experience, sheltered in stars, candlelight and the aromas of delicious flame grilled seafood.
Through the co-operation of both local and western management, Baliku Cafe has grown to become one of Jimbaran Bay’s most popular dining establishments.
Teak furniture table settings occupy a stylish restaurant interior. An attractive open bar and cashier station created from sandstone tiling adds warm hues to the burgundy & plum interior.
The dining area is furnished with surround sound entertainment facilities and overlooks the shoreline of Jimbaran Bay through large bay windows. A warm comfortable ambience is created from seductive electrical lighting mingled with candlelight.
The cooking area has expanded to better accommodate the preparation of fresh local seafood chosen from iced storage boxes or water-filled tanks housing live produce. Modern refrigeration units safeguarded by a generator, ensure that all produce for sale is stored at appropriate temperatures in a hygienic environment.
The outdoor seating facilities cater for approximately 200 guests. All tables are placed on the sand, meters from the ocean under open skies.
Balmy evenings are cooled by light ocean breezes or with the assistance of ceiling fans indoors. Throughout the day, sun lounges sheltered under cream umbrella canvases invite guests to enjoy an afternoon basking safely in the tropical heat.
The bar stocks a large range of beverage selections including a modest Australian and Chilian wine list. A large number of cocktails are available in addition to basic spirit varieties and extremely cold beer. Western toilet facilities ensure that your time spent at Baliku Cafe is memorable for all the right reasons!
