Indulge yourself in these newly opened dining spots in Bali.
Australia’s favorite burger brand is en route to Bali. With Managing Director and Founder of the Grill’d Group Simon Crowe announcing the company welcomes its first international restaurant, Grill’d Bali, to Seminyak Square in late December 2019. Casual but refined is the mantra for the new space, which has been designed as a sanctuary for customers wanting to enjoy a meal in air-conditioned surrounds, while watching Seminyak’s crowds pass by. The space now also houses a custom-designed bar, bespoke lighting, and furniture, with seating for 150 inside and out.
While the menu will be familiar to loyal Grill’d fans, there will be some new additions exclusive to the Bali restaurant.

An extensive cocktail list will accompany the menu, designed by Bali’s best bartender, Gogon (ex-Bikini). Classics include Relish the Day (Bloody Mary), Monkey Colada (Pina Colada), Whisky Whistle (Whisky Sour), That Bali Mojo (Mojito) and Vesper Vibes (Espresso Martini) while the ‘Fancy Pants’ menu features creations like Butterfly Kisses (Butterfly pea gin, soda and turmeric cordial), Pink Knight (vodka, dragonfruit, cranberry, galangal syrup and twist of lime), Pine Star (white rum, pineapple jam, starfruit, cinnamon syrup and a hint of citrus), Passionate Tango (vodka Chambord, passionfruit, mango, ginger beer, and lime) and She’ll Be Apples (vodka, fresh apple juice, rosemary, and spice).
