We've eaten a lot of Mexican food - authentic, not tex mex - and this place is right up there. Yes it's small, which adds to its charm. Clearly fresh ingredients - being pregnant this is always a concern but no worries here! Ridiculously tasty. We'll be going back before we leave Bali that's for certain - just hoping I have enough time to try it all!

Really looking forward to Babi Guling tacos and I was not disappointed. The pork was seasoned well and ha a real balinese taste. The nachos were also delicious. I personally did not enjoy the chicken wings but this is just my taste. The chilli popper was a sure fire winner. My wife enjoyed her brain freeze juice.

Hi and thanks for the lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed our babi guling tacos, and the poppers and delighted to receive such feedback from a writer with 88 review to his/her credit. It is much appreciated, and we hope you'll give some of our other fusion dishes a try.

We quite like our Beef Rendang taco, and the Sumatran Chicken Taco in Tiger Sauce made with spices available only from the Batak tribe in Sumatra is very popular, once tried. Note: NO tigers were harmed in the making of this sauce! Wishing you an equally lovely day, All the best, Bob, Owner, Taco Beach Grill - Boldly Going Where No Taco Has Gone Before!

We went here on our first trip to Bali about 2 years ago and we were excited to return. Sadly the place appears to have gone downhill. I was particularly disappointed with the Chilli poppers - which were/are a highlight - they were cold and over crumbed. The ingredients in the tacos and burrito also seemed a little tired - not fresh and vibrant. Even the salsa was a little bland. The service was also a little stilted - no asking about extra drinks and not clearing plates etc. so sad because this was a former highlight for us.

Thanks for the feedback. Your points have been duly noted, taken on board, and expressed to the staff in the strongest possible -yet polite- mannner. Thanks.

I'd like to invite you back, as I think your experience was an anomaly and that our standards remain as high as ever, especially with regards to the salsas and chile poppers. I hope you'll give us another try and let us know in a future review, or write to me personally at info@tacobeachgrill.com . Warm regards, Bob, Owner, Taco Beach Grill - Inspired Mexican Cuisine Prepared with Integrity.

Brilliant little place on Jalan Kunti. Service from the friendly staff was really appreciated along with the delicious food. Loved the atmosphere of the open kitchen. All the positive reviews about this place are spot on, a real winner.

Thanks for you delightful review, it means a lot to both me and surely to other readers coming from someone with your experience, of 47 restaurant reviews. We do indeed go to extra lengths to deliver a "wow" factor with our large selection of fresh salsas, and hand--pressed tortillas - both of which we make fresh every few hours, so that everything has a certain zest. We appreciate your recognition of that. Thank you, Bob N. Taco Beach Grill - Home of the Babi Guling Taco!.
